made me realize how much I ve missed the joy and sleep deprivation marathoning books gives me.I already knew how dreadful I would feel once I finished Blue Lily, Lily Blue because I m in love with these books, but I guess I didn t prepare myself enough because I CAN T believe I have to wait till April to find out what happens next This series has affected me so much, I love love love the characters and the hilarious banter between all of them They make me feel at home And I already miss them I had no idea going into this world that I would be so addicted to the writing style and the perfectly build up sequences yet here I am writing this review in the middle of night because I can t stop thinking about everything that went down in this book This book is set shortly after the events of The Dream Thieves, Blue and the raven boys continue on with their quest to find Glendower, the Raven King.Maura is still underground in hopes to find Artemus and other mysterious things And I really missed her in this story, I hadn t realized what an impact she d made on meBut Maura was not some people She had begun to dream the future when she was fourteen She had spoken to her first spirit when she was sixteen She had used remote viewing to see the other side of the world when she was nineteen Time and space were bathtubs that Maura splashed in Blue terribly misses her mother, but she remains determined, strong, and compassionate I loved her in this storyAfter an extraordinary summer full of chasing kings and disappearing mothers, it was hard to really, truly picture herself going to class every day What would any of this matter in two years Nobody here would remember her, or vice versa She would only remember that this was the fall her mother vanished This was the year of GlendowerAlso, Blue and Gansey I needof them togetherGansey was not sleeping.Because Blue had no cell phone, there was no way for him to break the rules and call her Instead, he had begun to instead lie in his bed each night, eyes closed, hand resting on his phone, waiting to see if she was going to call him from the Phone Sewing Cat Room at her house.Stop it, he told himself Stop wanting it His phone buzzed.He put it to his ear You re still not Congress, I see He was wide awake Their night phone calls made me smile so much And their late night outings evensoShe turned to Gansey Blue, he warned, but his voice was chaotic This close, his throat was scented with mint and wool sweater and vinyl car seat, and Gansey, just Gansey.She said, I just want to pretend I want to pretend that I could He breathed out.What was a kiss without a kiss So good and so heartbreakingEverything jumbled against everything else in just a few chaotic moments Fingers in hair, hands cupping necks, mouths dragged on cheeks and chins in dangerous proximity.They stopped, noses mashed against each other in the strange way that closeness required She could feel his breath in her mouth Maybe it wouldn t hurt if I kiss you, he whispered Maybe it s only if you kiss me More of Gansay and Blue together, please We got lovely little snippets of them together just so we could know how good it can be But I really really really needSomeone should get kissed in this series Speaking of love, there wasn t as much of Ronan as I would ve liked but when he did show up so good I m all starry eyedI want you to whistle or hum or sing, Ronan, and keep track of time, Gansey said You have got to be shitting me, Ronan replied Me Gansey peered down the tunnel I know you know a lot of songs all the way through, and can do them the same speed and length every time Because you had to memorize all of those tunes for the Irish music competitions My life will be made when I readabout Ronan s music competitions So cute.And Ronan and Adam s interactions were so much fun to read, especially when you know that Ronan secretly has feelings for himLater, Adam walked out through the cool, damp night to his small, shitty car As he sank into the driver s seat, he found something already sitting on the seat.He retrieved the object and held it up under the feeble interior cab light It was a small white plastic container Adam twisted off the lid Inside was a colorless lotion that smelled of mist and moss Replacing the lid with a frown, he turned the container over, looking foridentifying features On the bottom, Ronan s handwriting labeled it merely manibus For your hands He s so damn sweet and kind and marvelousAs they moved through the old barn, Adam felt Ronan s eyes glance off him and away, his disinterest practiced but incomplete Adam wondered if anyone else noticed Part of him wished they did and immediately felt bad, because it was vanity, really See, Adam Parrish is wantable, worthy of a crush, not just by anyone, someone like Ronan, who could want Gansey or anyone else and chose Adam for his hungry eyes.Maybe he was wrong He could be wrong So Adam knows And does he not feel the same I need answersYou can be just friends with people, you know, Orla said I think it s crazy how you re in love with all those raven boys Orla wasn t wrong, of course But what she didn t realize about Blue and her boys was that they were all in love with one another She was no less obsessed with them than they were with her, or one another, analyzing every conversation and gesture, drawing out every joke into a longer and longer running gag, spending each moment either with one another or thinking about when next they would be with one another Blue was perfectly aware that it was possible to have a friendship that wasn t all encompassing, that wasn t blinding, deafening, maddening, quickening It was just that now that she d had this kind, she didn t want the other I feel just as close to all the raven boys especially Ronan.Oh, and Robert Parrish visiting Adam was something I definitely wasn t expecting, but when he showed up at Adam s door tears appeared so quickly in my eyes I still haven t forgotten that awful night at Adam s old homeHe did not want to get hit.He would do what he needed to do to not get hit Damn, I thought Adam wouldn t break my heart in this book, but I was so wrong I was really trying to hold in the tears when he arrived at the courthouse aloneEven if I lose, he thought weakly, he can t have me back, so it won t matter It will only be this hour of humiliation and then it will be over But I was so relieved when the bailiff told the judge that there were some witnesses for the case I felt like a huge weight had been lifted off of meThe door cracked open Adam didn t want to look, but he did anyway.In the hall stood Richard Campbell Gansey III in his school uniform and overcoat and scarf and gloves, looking like someone from another world Behind him was Ronan Lynch, his damn tie knotted right for once and his shirt tucked in.Humiliation and joy warred furiously inside Adam.Gansey strode between the pews as Adam s father stared at him He went directly to the bench, straight up to the judge Now that he stood directly beside Adam, not looking at him, Adam could see that he was a little out of breath Ronan, behind him, was as well They had run For him And so much happened towards the end, I m still trying to wrap my mind it.Especially around the fact that Persephone diedWe ll get her back, Adam said.But Calla was already crying.Blue, unconcerned with dignity, dragged Persephone out by her armpits She was light and unresisting.They would pull her back, just as Adam said.Calla sank to her knees and covered her face Stop it, snapped Blue, voice cracking Get over here and help She took Persephone s hand It was as cold as the cave walls When Calla started crying, I knew something was terribly wrong.Calla cries I cry even harderLook, I told Calla we were going into the cave To find Maura He corrected,formally, Your mother Oh, seriously Don t Richard Gansey on me Blue snapped, and then, at once, she began to cry.It was against the rules, but Gansey crouched down beside her, one of his knees against her back, one against her knees, and hugged her She curled against him, hands balled up against his chest He felt a hot tear slip into the dip of his collarbone He closed his eyes against the sun through the window, burning hot in his sweater, foot falling asleep, elbow grinding into the metal bed frame, Blue Sargent pressed up against him, and he didn t move I love them.Their journey into to the cave had me literally on the edge of my seat I felt like I was holding my breath for those last few pages.And when Ronan and Blue saw the lake, I really thought that Maura was gone This book is seriously destroying meIt s not real, Ronan told her, voice low It s not real, Blue I saw her, Blue said, and she heard the sob in her voice My mother He said, I know I saw my father But she was there My father s dead in the ground And Adam saw your mother farther on in this godforsaken cave That lake is a lie For a moment they remained that way, Ronan holding her as tightly as he would hold his brother Matthew, his cheek on her shoulder Every time she thought she could go on, she saw the face of her mother s corpse again.Finally, she pulled back, and Ronan stood up He looked away, but not before she saw the tear he flicked from his chin Fuck this, he said again I could not handle it when Ronan shed a tear I love him so much and he doesn t deserve so much pain They don t deserve so much pain.I love them all so, so much and I could talk about them for hours thanks Mom for listening.I seriously cannot recommend this book enough I didn t so much visit this world as get absorbed I loved itThere wasn t a single moment where I felt bored or lost interest The story flows so easily.It s also really painful coming to realize that I won t know what will happen until April I can t let go of the wonderful characters just yet, so I ll probably read all the really cute scenes over and over.Oh, and I finally found the incredible fanart that got me interested in The Raven Boys.Adam Parrish Richard Campbell Gansey IIISourceI also loved listening to this song because my heart was definitely

I will get oneI was here I exist I m alive, because I bleedHow many powerful emotions are evoked by characters brilliantly flawed and damaged I finally grew fond of Adam, and sympathized with his loneliness and was happy with the way his relationship with Ronan started to develop Perhaps they ll find a kindred spirit in each other and share their grief, their anger, and trade them with somethinginvigorating, something brighter But while their futute seems full of possibilities, Blue and Gansey follow a path that will result in heartbreak and tears Probably mineBlue, he warned, but

IN YA AND EVERYTHING IS GOOD IN THE WORLD WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT AND FLOWERS BLOOM AND BIRDS FLOAT AROUND YOUR HEAD AND SING OR TWEET OR WHATEVER IT IS THEY DO.https emmareadstoomuch.wordpress.coNo, seriously, please tell me how Because I straight up read this book a month ago and I GOT NOTHIN.I suppose I will begin with what I know to be true, and what I know to be true is that HOW DO YOU WRITE A REVIEW OF A BOOK THAT YOU LOVED SO MUCH IT MAKES YOUR HEART WARM AND IT RESTORED YOUR FAITH IN YA AND EVERYTHING IS GOOD IN THE WORLD WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT AND FLOWERS BLOOM AND BIRDS FLOAT AROUND YOUR HEAD AND SING OR TWEET OR WHATEVER IT IS THEY DO.https emmareadstoomuch.wordpress.coNo, seriously, please tell me how Because I straight up read this book a month ago and I GOT NOTHIN.I suppose I will begin with what I know to be true, and what I know to be true is that Richard Gansey III is my husband I have said this now in three 3 consecutive reviews of each of the three 3 books in this series I have read, and yet it only grows to betrue Because he only gets better What does it say about me that I m now one hundred percent convinced I just jinxed myself and will hate him by the next book In other words what is wrong with me This is a cry for help I love Gansey It s an all consuming love It s above analysis, so I can t even tell you why I do But I do And I m claiming him He is THE book boyfriend for me now Goodbye, tienne St Clair from Anna and the French Kiss It s been a good three years, but I ve grown I ve matured I ve moved on And also, you re short, and that s just never been a viable option for me Me every boy of all time Excluding Gansey because I could talk about my love for that elegant man boy for pages I tell ya things tend a lottoward the eh end of the spectrum As in, Ronan is still incredibly blah Who caaaaaares We get it You re edgy You can stop now Also, Adam, still sooooooo eh But I willllll saya certain relationship begins to blossom and bloom and beautifully pop up from the soiland that shindig is not eh at all Insert the smolder emoji here But, quelle surprise, nothing is perfect because nothing is ever good or easy, and there is a relationship that is so incredibly eh it s almost like it s too eh for the world eh Like, they tried to put a picture of this relationship in the dictionary next to the word eh, but they were like one, this is a fictional couple so that s impossible, two, is the word eh even in the dictionary, and three, THIS IS TOO EH EVEN FOR THIS.That s the dictionary people, angrily shouting NEXT, as in next person proposing an image to be added next to a definition I bet you didn t consider how much time dealing with those queries takes for the employees of dictionaries.ANYWAY That horribly boring and blah relationship issighBlue and Gansey That pairing can die, really Brutally That budding duo can get run over by a steamroller and come out all Flat Stanley d and non viable on the other side Also, to clarify, I mean the relationship itself can die I would never endorse the murder of Gansey.ANYWAY AGAIN When did Blue Gansey happen One second they re just a pair of pals and the next second they are SMASHING their FACES together PRETENDING they re KISSING Horrible Gross For so many reasons On so many levels Also, I am not saying this due to any repressed jealousy That would be insane And while I may be at a level of insanity that I would call dibs on the hand in marriage of a fictional character, I am not yet at a level of insanity wherein I am jealous of the fictional beaux of that fictional character That would be, in case anyone is wondering just when this whole thing will officially have gone too far, the moment when help should be contacted.But back to the characters I literally did not even finish that section God help me ANYWAY Blue is pretty cool in this book, because she always is Noah is still my small spooky son, and I love him and he should ve been in this book , but that s just because he should be in everything In order for me to attain true happiness I need to reach a point where Noah is popping up even in content not created by Maggie Stiefvater He s a goddamn prince and he deserves it.The Gray Man sticks around for this book, which is a thrill because I love him I do not know why this is true, because his literal defining characteristic is that he is gray, but I love him anyway AND PLUS, NEW PEOPLE COME AND GUESS WHAT THEY RE ALSO GREAT.Piper is a queen A literal queen, because I am crowning her queen of all villains This is legitimate and legal in the eyes of the law, because I crowned myself ruler of all books.Piper s husband what s his name is also pretty sick Which is really surprising, because one, male villains are so boring, and two, Evil Teacher Guy has also been done Like, within this very series Two books ago.Hahahahaha oh my god Whoa I almost forgot about that horrendous bore What a snoozefest that guy was The improvement to this series just by this book alone is WILD my friends WILD.But there are evennew people These include a woman who is cool both the least spoilery AND least interesting way I could possibly put that a guy named Jesse who is pretty cute and lovableMaggie Stiefvater can really crank out characters I care about A feat matched by, guess what, literally no other authors I am semi incapable of even fictional love and affection The setting remains sick, because it always has been The magic is even amazing er than ever How does it keep getting better This book is justaaction packed version of the other two More of the stuff ya like, less of the same filler sh t from the first two You know Less Adam is poor and insecure about it, Blue eats yogurt and let s talkabout the whole amplifier thing, Ronan is angsty, Gansey chews a mint leaf and plays with toys and has a journal and is somehow very rich throughout, Ronan is angsty, Noah is blurry and also, oh yeah, view spoiler dead hide spoiler , and of course, Ronan, in case you forgot, is extraordinarily, next level angsty Seriously, that s a spot on encapsulation of the first two books I am honestly proud of myself You could definitely just skip the first two books and cut to what matters based on that paragraph alone Please don t do that I m quite pleased I didn t give The Raven Boys or The Dream Thieves five stars, because this sh t is on a whole other level baby They aren t even in the same REALM OF EXISTENCE If those two are books this one straight up has to be called something else We have to make up a new word based on how much better this one is than those garbage monsters Ugh I am filled with love And also excitement And also immense fear and trepidation and regret because oh my god the next one just cannot be as good there is no way it s impossible life is just an endless feast of disappointment with countless courses of sadness casserole, which is also known as just casserole Um.Just realized I m not going to ever ever read the last book.Bottom line WHATEVER LITERALLY JUST READ THE SERIES FOR THIS BOOK IT IS LIFE CHANGING AND I KNOW I DID A BAD JOB OF EXPLAINING HOW GREAT IT IS BUT JUST TRUST ME, OK I m not used to five star reviews PRE REVIEWmy skin is clear my bank account is full my bookshelves aren t messy and my crops survived the winter.ok well none of that is true BUT THIS

both comforting and heartaching it s like missing an old friend and fresh Even now I still notice little things and my heart just feels incredibly full These characters have long since stopped being ink on paper.my particularly favourite moments of this reread were Blue consuming only yogurt and using her illegal pink switch blade quite a lot Also that time she tried to hit Noah for saying she had nice legs that gas station scene tho omg All of Ronan s aggressive attempts to take Adam on dates You re doing this thing with me What Scene They fight Scene they maybe nearly die Scene they plot murder Later, Ronan a successful date And Gansey just having panic attacks because nothing isrelatable Idek how it s possiblyBUT I LOVE THIS BOOK EVEN MORE THIS TIME AND I ALREADY LOVED IT ASTRONOMICALLY SO THE FIRST TIME shrieks The thing that most makes me sob in this series apart from precious Pynch moments is the fact that it makes me think so so much Like I have theories I see little nuggets and clues I just feel like I got SO SO MUCH MORE OUT OF IT THE SECOND TIME And everything makes me want to hold it and shriek and cry basically Everything ADJFAKSLDFThings I Appreciated During This Re Read Everything Pynch Realising Adam s INCREDIBLE character developmentwhere he even admits his pride is an idiot Realising Ronan s INCREDIBLE character developmenthe is not a drunk raging asshole so much any Still nasty But wonderful But nasty BUT WONDERFUL The fact that the way the title is REPEATED probably is a nod to Blue being a mirror Yes Yesss DO YOU THINK I accidentally love the Gray Man He is a good father to Blue 3 PERSEPHONE 3 SHRIEKS Gansey darling His panic attack was the best thing in the world Not because I want him to suffer but because GANSEY ANXIETY ADORABLE COOKIE POT WHOM IS RELATABLE AND I LOVE I love Gansey GANSEEEEY SaveGansey Blue s feminist fights were the best Also Jesse Dittley 3 SHRIEKS MORE Also is it just me or is Greenmantle like Metatron from Supernatural Yes Say yes basically THIS SERIES FREAKING SPLITS ME IN HALF AND I LOVE IT I CANNOT STOP THINKING ABOUT IT I ACTUALLY FEEL LIKE RE READING IT AGAIN IMMEDIATELY WHAT S WRONG WITH ME How is this book so so good I need a moment possibly nine moments If I could only pick one favourite seriesjust ONEit would be this one I wouldn t even hesitate DO YOU REALISE HOW MUCH I LOVE IT NOW OKAY OKAY I M CALMING Caaalming I shall be over here, rocking gently and cry and waiting for The Raven King Here is my 2015 Review I ve put off reviewing this because I just feel ALL OF THE THINGS And my reviews for these kinds of books never adequately sum up how much I love them SoI LOVE THIS BOOK A LOT OKAY AND YOU SHOULD GO READ IT AND THERE IS NOTHING BETTER THAN A MAGGIE STIEFVATER BOOK AND I WILL LITERALLY BEG ON MY KNEES FOR THE FINAL BOOK THAT CLIFFHANGER WAS WICKED GANSEEEEEY.I am a huge Maggie Stiefvater fan and basically give all her books 5 starsso maybe i m a little biased but THIS WAS AMAZINGLY FANtASTIC I think The Raven Boys is still my favourite of the trilogy because it introduced me to these amazing characters But the Dream Thieves broke my heart and Blue Lily Lily Blue just extended my craziness of passionate obsession for this series Since it s the 3rd in a series, it s hard to review without spoilers While The Dream Thieves wasabout Ronan, this one is back to beingabout Blue Everyone makes great leaps and bounds in character development Ronan will forever break my heartand there was quite a few shippable Ronan Adam moments I m not EXACTLY sure how I stand with my shipping I want to ship ALL OF THE THINGS like the fangirl I am But I m also very aware that I want everything to stay the same with my Raven Boys And 1 Girl I want their epic tight knit group of friendship to just stay exactly the same And once people start getting together, that all gets ruiend And Gansey knows this, which is why he won t admit he likes Blue Also the whole if she kisses him she ll kill him.Can I take a moment to say I m FREAKING TERRIFIED FOR GANSEY He s going to die Blue predicted it in book 1 BUT I CAN T HAVE GANSEY DIE I ve been with him for 3 books and I just love himandand he and Blue are adorable They ring each other up in the middle of the night even thought it s against the rules their own private rules of not liking each other and they talk about birds or congress Never each other It is the sweetest most adorable relationship I ve ever read And I LOVE it I love how different they are to typical YA books I love how this book is book is focused on dead Welsh kings and FRIENDSHIP mostlyand then shippable things secondly I really love books about friendship, okay But let s talk a little about all the characters, shall we Yes, yes we shall BLUE She s as feisty but calm sweet as ever I love how Blue has such a huge personality but she s kind of serious and not prone to losing her mind over anything She will not be belittled She will stand up for herself She s such a feminist and doesn t need a boy to save her She s also short I didn t actually realise till this book how short she is BUT IT S HILARIOUS There are so many short jokes.GANSEY I love Gansey He is smooth and he keeps everyone together so well But he has secretslike a bitcomes out about his immense secrets in this book For some reason Gansey seemedboyish than usual Like he s so collected al of the timebut.it s like death is closer and I AM FREAKING OUT OAKY ADAM Is finally starting to grow a brain and he s whole mantra is don t fight with Gansey don t fight with Blue and I appreciate that Adam is so tough and strong and he s so fragile But I love him He and Ronan fight something vicious but they are THERE for each other, which just gives me ajfdsklad feels Even not as a couple JUST AS FRIENDS TOO I think Ronan would stab Adam in the eye, still But you know, every friendship has their rough patches.RONAN I LOVE RONAN SO MUCH HE IS MY FAVOURITE He is so ferocious and such a giant jerkbut adorable And so full of secrets I kind of guessed that view spoiler Ronan makes himself so difficult but he really really needs the others SO BADLY.NOAH We re losing Noah I am terrified He s going a littlecrazy as a ghost and I really really really want htem to fix him because I love Noah.Basically I love everyone Are you shocked HAH AH No you re not.The writing is as beautiful as always I think this is the fastest moving book of the 3 so far There s a lot of scenery changes There s villainous action There s cursed caves and Jesse Dittley AND I AM SO IN NEED OF BOOK 4 BEFORE I EXPLODE, OKAY descriptionFAVOURITEST QUOTES You can just be friends with people, you know, Orla said I think it s crazy how you re in love with all those raven boys It was true that Blue was just shy of five feet and it was also true that she hadn t eaten her greens, but she d done the research and she didn t think the two were related As they moved through the old barn, Adam felt Ronan s eyes glance off him and away, his disinterest practised but incomplete Adam wondered if anyone else noticed Part of him wished they did and immediately felt bad, because it was vanity, really See, Adam Parrish is wantable, worthy of a crush, not just by anyone, someone like Ronan, who could want Gansey or anyone else and chose Adam for his hungry eyes Maybe he was wrong He could be wrong I am unknowable, Ronan Lynch pg 158 YOUR DEAD FRIEND, Jesse noted, sitting down opposite her at the tiny drop leaf table The mirror lay between them, face down That s not his fault Why didn t you say you could see him I DIDN T SAY I COULD SEE YOU, EITHER But I m not dead, Blue pointed out BUT YOU ARE PRETTY SHORT pg 183 She lay there and told herself to go back to sleep, but instead, she got angrier She was tired of Persephone and Calla and her mother withholding information because Blue wasn t psychic Of not being able to daydream of fancy colleges because she wasn t rich Of not being able to hold Gansey s hand because they couldn t hurt Adam s feelings and not being able to kiss Gansey s mouth because she didn t want to kill him She was tired of knowing that he was going to die and being afraid that her mother would, too pg 196 Ronan pointed at the cart Get in there What He just continued pointing Adam said, Give me a break This is a public parking lot Don t make this ugly, Parrish As an old lady headed past them, Adam sighed and climbed into the basket of the shopping cart He drew his knees up so that he would fit He was full of the knowledge that this was probably going to end with scabs Ronan gripped the handle with the skittish concentration of a motorcycle racer and eyed the line between them and the BMW parked on the far
