Book Review : The Raven king Maggie Stiefvater
The Raven King (The Raven Cycle, Book 4) - Maggie Stiefvater

April 26- May 21 All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love's death. She doesn't believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore. Review : The final book in the raven cycle I loved it one of my favorite Series . Gansey knows he's going to die . Cabeswater is having problems Noah almost killed Blue . The Character Henry I didn't like him at first but he grew on me he's an odd character . Blue and Gansey at the toga party was funny . Gansey tells Adam and Ronan about him and Blue I'm glad he did so they can be open with each other . Ronan's dream person came out Orphan girl . OH my god Ronan kissed Adam I'm so freaking happy for them and Adam kissed him back ahhhhhhh . They found Gledower and he's just dead that was disapointing there is this demon they have to get rid of . Gansey goes to the place where he dies and Blue kisses him and he dies but Cabeswater brings him back . Noah finally moves on I cried I loved this book I cried I laughed this series is one of my favorites I loved the characters and the storyline .

Quotes:

“His feelings for Adam were an oil spill; he'd let them overflow and now there wasn't a damn place in the ocean that wouldn't catch fire if he dropped a match.” 
 
When Adam kissed him, it was every mile per hour Ronan had ever gone over the speed limit. It was every window-down, goose-bumps-on-skin, teeth-chattering-cold night drive. It was Adam’s ribs under Ronan’s hands and Adam’s mouth on his mouth, again and again and again. It was stubble on his lips and Ronan having to stop, to get his breath, to restart his heart. They were both hungry animals, but Adam had been starving for far longer.”
 
 
No homework. I got suspended,” Blue replied.
“Get the fuck out,” Ronan said, but with admiration. “Sargent, you asshole
 
You're asking me to define an abstract concept that no one has managed to explain since time began. You sort of sprang it on me," Gansey said. "Why do we breathe air? Because we love air? Because we don't want to suffocate. Why do we eat? Because we don't want to starve. How do I know I love her? Because I can sleep after I talk to her. Why?” 
 
 
Trees in your eyes ... Stars in your heart.”
 
“It'll be OK. I'm ready. Blue, kiss me.” 
 
He wordlessly crossed the floor and sat beside Adam on the mattress. When he held out his hand, Adam put the model into it.
“This old thing,” Ronan said. He turned the front tyre, and again the music played out of it. They sat like that for a few minutes, as Ronan examined the car and turned each wheel to play a different tune. Adam watched how intently Ronan studied the seams, his eyelashes low over his light eyes. Ronan let out a breath, put the model down on the bed beside him, and kissed Adam.
Once, when Adam had still lived in the trailer park, he had been pushing the lawn mower around the scraggly side yard when he realized that it was raining a mile away. He could smell it, the earthy scent of rain on dirt, but also the electric, restless smell of ozone. And he could see it: a hazy gray sheet of water blocking his view of the mountains. He could track the line of rain travelling across the vast dry field towards him. It was heavy and dark, and he knew he would get drenched if he stayed outside. It was coming from so far away that he had plenty of time to put the mower away and get under cover. Instead, though, he just stood there and watched it approach. Even at the last minute, as he heard the rain pounding the grass flat, he just stood there. He closed his eyes and let the storm soak him.
That was this kiss.
They kissed again. Adam felt it in more than his lips.
Ronan sat back, his eyes closed, swallowing. Adam watched his chest rise and fall, his eyebrows furrow. He felt as bright and dreamy and imaginary as the light through the window.
He did not understand anything.
It was a long moment before Ronan opened his eyes, and when he did, his expression was complicated. He stood up. He was still looking at Adam, and Adam was looking back, but neither said anything. Probably Ronan wanted something from him, but Adam didn’t know what to say. He was a magician, Persephone had said, and his magic was making connections between disparate things. Only now he was too full of white, fuzzy light to make any sort of logical connections. He knew that of all the options in the world, Ronan Lynch was the most difficult version of any of them. He knew that Ronan was not a thing to be experimented with. He knew his mouth still felt warm. He knew he had started his entire time at Aglionby certain that all he wanted to do was get as far away from this state and everything in it as possible.
He was pretty sure he had just been Ronan’s first kiss.”

RONAN AND ADAM KISS

Quote
A Court of Mist and Fury - Sarah J. Maas
Try thinking of me - how good-looking I am . How talented---
How arrogant .
That, too. He crossed his arms over his bare chest . the movement making the muscles in his stomach flicker . put a shirt on while you're at it , I quipped. A feline smile . Does it make you uncomfortable ? I'm suprised there aren't more mirrors in this house , since you seem to love looking at yourself so much . Azriel launched into a coughing fit. Cassian just turned away a hand clamped over his mouth .Rhy's lips twitched . There's the Feyre I adore .

Blue Lily, Lily Blue - Maggie Stiefvater

April 13-26

Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.

The trick with found things, though, is how easily they can be lost.

Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.

Review : I loved this book and this series gets better with each book I loved the new information we got with this . In this we got new characters some good and some can just go far far away the gray man's boss and his wife are fucking crazy people . They found a woman in the cursed cave glendower's daughter and she's a little nuts . Blue's mom is still missing she has feelings for Gansey but if she kisses him he will die I just want all these characters to be happy . Ronan tells Adam that He dreamed of Mathew so Mathew is like his mother I was so shocked Mathew is so adorable though . Gansey doctor friend Malory came to town to check out the ley line and help a little . The new character Jesse who Blue remembers being on the death list he has a curse on his family . Greenmantle and Piper are fucking nuts I didn't like them I just wanted them to go far away . Persephone is helping adam you can tell a lot in this book Ronan has a thing for Adam the way he looked at Adam and I love it and Ronan supports Adam with the trial with Adam's asshole father . Adam and Ronan Set Greenmantle up for a crime so he can leave town Piper takes the Gray man hostage . Persephone dies and I cried which I didn't think I would I still don't know how she died Blue finds her mother and her FATHER oh my god this book was awesome I can't wait to find out what happens in the last book I love this series .

Quotes: You 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 know when I'm awake and when I'm asleep," Ronan Lynch said.
Adam Parrish, curled over himself in a pair of battered, greasy coveralls, asked, "Do you?"
"Maybe I dreamt you," he said.
"Thanks for the straight teeth, then," Adam replied.”

“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.”


“As 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.”

"I'm dead," Noah replied, "not stupid.”


Behind him, he heard Ronan say, "I like the way you losers thought Instagram before first aid. Fuck off.”




Blue got herself back together and then turned on the radio.

Adam hadn't even realized the ancient tape deck worked, but after a hissing few seconds, a tape inside jangled a tune. Noah began to sing along at once.

'Squash one, squash two-'

Adam pawed for the radio at the same time as Blue. The tape ejected with enough force that Noah stretched a hand to catch it.

'That song. What are you doing with that in your player?' Demanded Blue. 'Do you listen to that recreationally? How did that song escape from the Internet?'

Noah cackled and showed them the cassette. It boasted a handmade label marked with Ronan's handwriting: PARRISH'S HONDAYOTA ALONE TIME. The other side was A SHITBOX SINGALONG.

'Play it! Play it!' Noah said gaily, waving the tape.

'Noah. Noah! Take that away from him,' Adam said.

Let’s leave her,” Ronan said. Gansey replied, “If we abandoned people in caves because they were crazy, you’d still be back in Cabeswater.


“Let me introduce you. These are my friends: Ronan, Adam Parrish, and Jane."
Adam's expression focused. Became Adam-like. He blinked over to Gansey.
"Blue," Blue corrected.
"Oh, yes, you are blue," Malory agreed. "How perceptive you are. What was the name? Jane? This is the lady I spoke to on the phone all those months ago, right? How small she is. Are you done growing?"
"What!" Blue said
