This week I'm wishing for...

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater 

Summary from Goodreads:

""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:"

Why I'm Wishing for It:
There was a lot of hype surrounding this one when it first came out. I'm not entirely sure why, but I just didn't take any notice of it, and even though I saw this book pop up around the blogosphere, I never actually read a review for it, or even the blurb I don't think. It's only over the past few days that I've seen it pop up again, and after some investigation, this book does sound rather interesting. Might as well give it a go!

What about you? What are you wishing for this week?


  1. I really loved Stiefvater's Wolves of Mercy Falls series so I have my fingers crossed to get this one as well. Happy reading! :)

  6. I'll be honest, I read The Raven Boys and didn't really like it, even though I enjoyed the Wolves of Mercy Falls series quite a bit. But I know a lot of people love this new series -- hope you enjoy it!
