Books I am taking to college

Hello fellow book lovers!

Today, I’ll be sharing with you the books I am taking with me to college.

If you follow me on twitter probably you already know I am going off to college, actually I’m going in the day before you are reading this, or at least the day before I am publishing this, and because I can’t take my entire shelf with me, I needed to narrow it down to only a few books. I am going to live in my godmother’s house (again, if you follow me on twitter you may know why) and I am simply taking three physical books with me so I don’t take to much space.

So here they are, the physical books and e-books I am dragging with me to college.

Hogwarts House Book Recommendations // Slytherin

Hello fellow bookworms.

The day has arrived, the last day of my Hogwarts house book recommendations, today I’ll be recommending books to the most misjudged house in Hogwarts. you have guessed it: SLYTHERIN!

I’m always saying Slytherins aren’t as bad as everyone thinks, there are good Slytherins and there are bad Gryffindors too, but that is something not many people seem to understand. There are also great people in the book community who are Slytherins, like Kat from Katytastic and Natasha from Tashapolis.

There are so many books in the next recommendations I have not read but I believe they are great.

Winning will make you famous.
Losing means certain death.

The nation of Panem, formed from a post-apocalyptic North America, is a country that consists of a wealthy Capitol region surrounded by 12 poorer districts. Early in its history, a rebellion led by a 13th district against the Capitol resulted in its destruction and the creation of an annual televised event known as the Hunger Games. In punishment, and as a reminder of the power and grace of the Capitol, each district must yield one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 through a lottery system to participate in the games. The ‘tributes’ are chosen during the annual Reaping and are forced to fight to the death, leaving only one survivor to claim victory.

When 16-year-old Katniss’s young sister, Prim, is selected as District 12’s female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives, some of whom have trained for this their whole lives. , she sees it as a death sentence. But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature.

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king’s council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she’ll serve the kingdom for four years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilarating. But she’s bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her … but it’s the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead … quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

An untested young princess must claim her throne, learn to become a queen, and combat a malevolent sorceress in an epic battle between light and darkness in this spectacular debut—the first novel in a trilogy.

Young Kelsea Raleigh was raised in hiding after the death of her mother, Queen Elyssa, far from the intrigues of the royal Keep and in the care of two devoted servants who pledged their lives to protect her. Growing up in a cottage deep in the woods, Kelsea knows little of her kingdom’s haunted past . . . or that its fate will soon rest in her hands.

Long ago, Kelsea’s forefathers sailed away from a decaying world to establish a new land free of modern technology. Three hundred years later, this feudal society has divided into three fearful nations who pay duties to a fourth: the powerful Mortmesne, ruled by the cunning Red Queen.

Now, on Kelsea’s nineteenth birthday, the tattered remnants of the Queen’s Guard—loyal soldiers who protect the throne—have appeared to escort the princess on a perilous journey to the capital to ascend to her rightful place as the new Queen of the Tearling.

Though born of royal blood and in possession of the Tear sapphire, a jewel of immense power and magic, Kelsea has never felt more uncertain of her ability to rule. But the shocking evil she discovers in the heart of her realm will precipitate an act of immense daring, throwing the entire kingdom into turmoil—and unleashing the Red Queen’s vengeance. A cabal of enemies with an array of deadly weapons, from crimson-caped assassins to the darkest blood magic, plots to destroy her. But Kelsea is growing in strength and stealth, her steely resolve earning her loyal allies, including the Queen’s Guard, led by the enigmatic Lazarus, and the intriguing outlaw known simply as “the Fetch.”

Kelsea’s quest to save her kingdom and meet her destiny has only just begun. Riddled with mysteries, betrayals, and treacherous battles, Kelsea’s journey is a trial by fire that will either forge a legend . . . or destroy her.

20820994 “We were all heading for each other on a collision course, no matter what. Maybe some people are just meant to be in the same story.” 

At first, Jude and her twin brother Noah, are inseparable. Noah draws constantly and is falling in love with the charismatic boy next door, while daredevil Jude wears red-red lipstick, cliff-dives, and does all the talking for both of them.

Years later, they are barely speaking. Something has happened to change the twins in different yet equally devastating ways . . . but then Jude meets an intriguing, irresistible boy and a mysterious new mentor.

The early years are Noah’s to tell; the later years are Jude’s. But they each have only half the story, and if they can only find their way back to one another, they’ll have a chance to remake their world.

This radiant, award-winning novel from the acclaimed author of The Sky Is Everywhere will leave you breathless and teary and laughing—often all at once.

Top 5 Thursday: Cover changes that blessed my soul // Fantasy

Hello fellow bookworms!

I bet you’ve already experienced the horror of having the hurge to buy a book, walking to the bookstore to get that beautiful book you saw on that booktube video and all of a sudden you see the book and it’s so ugly that you, actually, want to burn it (just kidding). I know that felling, I feel it from time to time!

But today, as the title already told ya, I won’t be talking about cover changes that ruined my aesthetic but book covers that changed and, actually, blessed my pour soul.

Here they are, the top 5 fantasy reads that changed their covers for something much more pleasing to the eye.

The first cover is the original cover of this book, the second one is the movie cover, which is the one I have. The original covers are good in the rest of the series, but I can’t stand the first one, I believe the second one is a more realistic version of what the maze looked like.

I do not have a problem with the original covers but the ones they released some years ago, you know, the ones that make the Hogwarts Castle when they’re alined are so much better.

My Harry Potter collection is a mix of many editions, I do not own the first book in physical format, I own the second one in english in this Bloomsbury edition, I have the third and fourth in the beautiful edition I just talked about, my fifth book has a british adult edition cover and I do not own the last ones yet.

Let me tell you that I do not own a single Percy Jackson book but if I ever did, I would own the covers that came out most recently because the others are UGLY! I am not judging the books, the books are amazing, but the original covers… not so much.

#TheReadingQuest Wrap Up and Why I Am A Failure

Hello fellow bookworms!

Today I’ll be sharing with you the books I read for #TheReadingQuest, if you want you can go ahead and see which books where included in my TBR, but that doesn’t matter anymore because I read only 1 book from there.

I am writing this as fast as I can while I am waiting for the email that is going to tell me if I’ll be a student in the university I want, reason number 1 why I am doing it: IF I DON’T DO SOMETHING I AM GOING TO DIE OF ANXIETY! Reason number 2: If the email says a bad thing, then I’ll curl up in a ball and I’ll never blog again or do anything else.

Here they are, the book I read for #TheReadingQuest or, as I like to call it, one more reason why I suck.

And that’s a wrap, it took me 3 hours to make this whole post and the email hasn’t come yet. I’m going to read Cinder, I hope I can finish it before this readathon ends.

UPDATE: It is now almost 11pm of the next day and I just want to say that 1) I didn’t finish Cinder and 2) I got into the college I wanted!!

Hogwarts House Book Recommendations // Ravenclaw

Hello, fellow bookworms!

Let’s take a moment for you to applaud me because I am writing this post with a week in advance, meaning: I am writing this post that is going live in a week because I’ve no idea of what I’ll be posting this week… Yeah! 😁 Besides, I promised myself I would only watch the new Teen Wolf episode after blogging.

I’ve already posted my book recommendations for my house mates, Gryffindores, and for the loyal, Hufflepuffes, today I’ll be recommend books to my sister’s house, Ravenclaw.

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse—Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends—one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena—Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

 

This book doesn’t have the most wise characters but this series made me wiser, I was, basicaly, the only person who knew who Antaeus was in my class (even though I kept my mouth shut when the teacher asked because I’m too shy).

This is a world divided by blood – red or silver.

The Reds are commoners, ruled by a Silver elite in possession of god-like superpowers. And to Mare Barrow, a seventeen-year-old Red girl from the poverty-stricken Stilts, it seems like nothing will ever change.

That is, until she finds herself working in the Silver Palace. Here, surrounded by the people she hates the most, Mare discovers that, despite her red blood, she possesses a deadly power of her own. One that threatens to destroy the balance of power.

Fearful of Mare’s potential, the Silvers hide her in plain view, declaring her a long-lost Silver princess, now engaged to a Silver prince. Despite knowing that one misstep would mean her death, Mare works silently to help the Red Guard, a militant resistance group, and bring down the Silver regime.

But this is a world of betrayal and lies, and Mare has entered a dangerous dance – Reds against Silvers, prince against prince, and Mare against her own heart.

 

Just because Mare doesn’t take shit from anyone…

A breathtaking journey toward self-discovery and true love, from the author of If I Stay.

When sheltered American good girl Allyson “LuLu” Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.

Sixteen-year-old Cinder is considered a technological mistake by most of society and a burden by her stepmother. Being cyborg does have its benefits, though: Cinder’s brain interference has given her an uncanny ability to fix things (robots, hovers, her own malfunctioning parts), making her the best mechanic in New Beijing. This reputation brings Prince Kai himself to her weekly market booth, needing her to repair a broken android before the annual ball. He jokingly calls it “a matter of national security,” but Cinder suspects it’s more serious than he’s letting on.

Although eager to impress the prince, Cinder’s intentions are derailed when her younger stepsister, and only human friend, is infected with the fatal plague that’s been devastating Earth for a decade. Blaming Cinder for her daughter’s illness, Cinder’s stepmother volunteers her body for plague research, an “honor” that no one has survived.

But it doesn’t take long for the scientists to discover something unusual about their new guinea pig. Something others would kill for.

The Raven Cycle (aka the series with the best characters ever) Book Tag

Hello, fellow bookworms.

I FINISHED BLUE LILY, LILY BLUE!

After almost two weeks, I finally finished Blue Lily, Lily Blue and oh boy! I loved it, this was, for me, the best book in the series. This book was simpler but at the same time they were throwing new information at me all the time, but it was somehow okay.

I’m not going to give spoilers but the two main ships in this series are finally getting to me… the first one has the phone scenes and the car drives and it is not fair that they can’t be together. The second ship is on the beginning and I don’t even know if it is a thing but I LOVE THEM BOTH and they are so complexed and intense.

I’m sorry for the rambling, let’s get to what we’re here for, today, I’ll be doing the Raven Cycle Tag.

 

hhh

 

1. In the books, Maura is the relaxed mom that is Blue’s friend more than an actual mother. Who is your favorite mom character?

There’s no other possible answer than the one I’m going to give: Mrs.Weasley. I’ve said this a million and a thousand times but I consider myself a Wealsey (if we exclude my brown hair), they are such a happy family and I think Molly is what keeps them all together and she runs that family like a boss.

 

2. Adam wanted to go to Aglionby so he could one day escape where he came from. Have you ever dreamt of living somewhere else? Where?

Since I was 12, I always knew I didn’t want to live in Portugal forever, I want to travel the world, but I also want to live somewhere else.

Just like Adam, I am working hard to escape the place I live in now, not for the same reasons, of course (my poor baby Adam). I always thought I wanted to live in Ireland but that has changed, now I believe that there are other options, better options.

 

3. In the second book we meet the Gray Man. He is a hit man who loves poetry. Name a book that you thought was going to be one thing but turned out to be something else.

I think many people are going to relate to this, so here it goes: I didn’t like Harry Potter and The Cursed Child.

After entering the Harry Potter world so many times, through the books or the movies, real pieces of art, The Cursed Child was just so upsetting to read. I must admit that the idea of the alternate versions created in this book were really creative, but the writing and the story were not something I liked.

After so many years, I thought that I would be blessed to read about Hogwarts again, but it wasn’t the Hogwarts I read about in the Harry Potter series, it was not my home.

giphy

 

4. Gansey has searched most of his life for a buried king who is promised to grant one wish. What is one wish you would ask Glendower?

I don’t know, and I mean it: I don’t actually know what is the thing I would ask Glendower for.

 

5. In this series you get to see Greenmantle as a fleshed out character but also as a villain. Name your favorite villain.

SPOILERS FOR RED QUEEN! Skip to the next question if you have not read it. 😘

f8dfc2ad606d38cce2f2a02a8a51ca8d

 

One of my favourite villains is Maven, only because he was able to fool me during the entire book, that little shit made me like him as much as I liked Cal and that is not okay.

 

 

 

6. Blue’s got her Raven Boys. Who makes up your bookish team?

I wouldn’t pick anyone else other than the actual Raven Boys. And you know what? I also want Blue Sargent. There’s no other bookish team I would like to be a part of, at least not right now.

 

7. Ronan is a bad ass with a sensitive side. What book have you read that was action packed but had beautiful emotional scenes as well?

A Court Of Mist And Fury, I mean, everything that happens in that book is pure gold, the romantic scenes, the action scenes, everything.

SPOILERS FOR A COURT OF MIST AND FURY!!! 

How could I choose another book when there’s the soup scene when Rhys tells Feyre about his life, the atack in Velaris, the sentence “I will bow before no one and nothing but my crown.” and then he bows to his High Lady, and finally, THAT ENDING!!

 

8. Noah has a heart of gold. Who has touched your heart recently?

Many things have touched my heart recently but here are the top ones:

1. People risking their lives to save animals from the floods of Hurricane Harvey. That makes me believe that humanity is not lost after all, people still have enough love in their hearts to help the ones in need.

2. “You’re not you” is a movie I saw 2 days ago and it is so fantastic and emotinal. I have never seen a movie like this before, showing you that even tough you’re ill, you have to live and showing that you are still able to touch people, to change them and that you are still worthy of love.

3. This cheesy video I saw 2 days ago and I actually liked it. I don’t like this kind of thing normally but this guy held a very important topic in his video, which is the fact that society expects men to be heartless creatures, covered with masculinity and showing no feelings.

 

9. Calla is a woman who speaks her mind and puts her foot down when necessary. Who is your favorite strong female character?

Lately, I’ve been thinking about how Inej Ghafa is such a strong character, she came from where she came from and she still is the best at her job and the one Kaz Brekker trusts the most. Besided, the fact that she wants to help others that are in the same position as she once was is a very honorable thing to do.

 

10. Chainsaw is an awesome Raven boy pet. If you could have one “exotic” pet…what would it be? What would you name it?

By the way, Chainsaw is more than just a pet, okay!?!?

And I would have a Koala, because they are adorable and I would put him in my backpack and bring him with me everywhere.

When it comes to his name, oh boy, I was never good with names (but so is Ronan), I guess I would call him Azriel and then I could just call him Az! I’m getting excited! Or Fred, it would be an amazing name to a koala! 😆😍

I’m editing this on my phone so I might have let some typos pass. 😩

If you have read The Raven Cycle, comment letting me know your thoughts (meaning: let’s fangirl about it together 😁). But I have not read The Raven King so be careful with the spoilers!

What does “feminism” mean today? That is the question at the heart of We Should All Be Feminists, a personal, eloquently-argued essay—adapted from her much-viewed TEDx talk of the same name—by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the award-winning author of Americanah and Half of a Yellow Sun.

With humor and levity, here Adichie offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century—one rooted in inclusion and awareness. She shines a light not only on blatant discrimination, but also the more insidious, institutional behaviors that marginalize women around the world, in order to help readers of all walks of life better understand the often masked realities of sexual politics. Throughout, she draws extensively on her own experiences—in the U.S., in her native Nigeria, and abroad—offering an artfully nuanced explanation of why the gender divide is harmful for women and men, alike.

Argued in the same observant, witty and clever prose that has made Adichie a bestselling novelist, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman today—and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

A stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.

From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, a stunningly ambitious and beautiful novel about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.

Marie Laure lives with her father in Paris within walking distance of the Museum of Natural History where he works as the master of the locks (there are thousands of locks in the museum). When she is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, every house, every manhole, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets with her feet and cane. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast, where Marie-Laure’s agoraphobic great uncle lives in a tall, narrow house by the sea wall.

In another world in Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure.

Doerr’s gorgeous combination of soaring imagination with observation is electric. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another. Ten years in the writing, All the Light We Cannot See is his most ambitious and dazzling work.

 

I have actually not read this book yet but I’ve heard nothing but good things about it, and I’ll, definitely, pick it up as soon as I’m able to buy it.

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…

But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words… And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Everything is going to change.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

Remember. Survive. Run.

August Wrap Up and September TBR

Hello, fellow bookworms.

Today I’ll be sharing with you the books I read in the month of August, in which I didn’t read as much as I planned, and my September TBR, in this month I plan to read as much as I can before going to college.

Capturar

As I already said, August was not the best reading month for me, I was planning to read 10 books in this month and I ended up completing only 6.

I tried to keep up with my TBR for #TheReadingQuest, but it was impossible, I completed one book from my original TBR and I’m thinking about craming some of the books I read in some other challenges, we’ll see in ten days when I finally post my wrap up for the challenge and realize I failed it.

I already read 41% of Blue Lily, Lily Blue and even though I wanted to finish it in August, I decided to give myself a reading break in yesterday’s afternoon, watch some movies and work on bullet jounal for a bit.

I’ve heard that this book is the best out of the four and I’m really enjoying it so far. I have to say that Maggie Stiefvater is the queen of prologues, the first pages of her books are THE BEST! Also, as I go on with this series, I’m able to see more and more about the relashionship between these characters and I love them so much.

Top 5 Thursday : Things On my Bookshelf That Aren’t Books

Hello fellow book lovers.

I got my bookshelf some months ago and I am already running out of space on it, that is, in part, because I keep various things in it besides my books, I can’t help, it looks so aesthetically pleasing. I have 4 shelfs, the first three are mine and the last one is my sister’s, the first shelf, is, literally, just for my globe, my candles and stuff like that. Then of couse I don’t have space for my books!

Today, I’ll be sharing with you five things I have in my bookshelf that are not books. I hope you enjoy it.

 

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them Mug

Cute Stuffed Shrek

I actually wanted Donkey but when I came to the store, every Donkey was already gone, so I brought Shrek, which was the last one they had. Donkey is a special character for my family so I wanted to have it.

Elle Magazine

I only bought this magazine because Emma Watson had a whole interview and article about her and her work as a Un Women’s Godwill Embassador. This edition of the Elle Magazine has lots of statics about women and how they feel about themselves as well.

 

My mom’s old camera (Fujifilm fotonex 101ix)

The majority of the photographs I have from when I was little were taken with this camera, this camera spent my whole childhood in my mother’s hands taking pictures of me and my sister, it holds a very special place in my heart. Besides, it has at least 17 years, it is as old as me and it is BEAUTIFUL.

 


 

And this is it, the end of this very quick post, I have to apologize for the quality of the photographs but that is the best I can do! 😢

It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.

At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.

91wex42edil Criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker has been offered wealth beyond his wildest dreams. But to claim it, he’ll have to pull off a seemingly impossible heist:

Break into the notorious Ice Court
(a military stronghold that has never been breached)

Retrieve a hostage
(who could unleash magical havoc on the world)

Survive long enough to collect his reward
(and spend it)

Kaz needs a crew desperate enough to take on this suicide mission and dangerous enough to get the job done – and he knows exactly who: six of the deadliest outcasts the city has to offer. Together, they just might be unstoppable – if they don’t kill each other first.

Feyre’s survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price …
Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre’s presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”
It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school.

Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resen

ts all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of the Shiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races, comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we’ve never been before.
