  • Maggie Stiefvater
    My new favorite of my books. It has All of My Favorite Things in it.

    Reread SEPTEMBER 2018 The only thing that matters:“Is it your - your thoughts are in Latin? Or the dialogue? Do other people speak Latin in them? Like, am I in your dreams?”“Oh, yes baby.” It amused Ronan to say this, a lot. He laughed enough that Chainsaw abandoned her paper shredding to verify he wasn’t dying.” “While I’m gone,” Gansey said, pausing, “dream me the world. Something new for every night.”This review contains ...

    This is the fantastical story of a boy tormented by nightmares that literally--literally!--become real. Set shortly after the events of The Raven Boys, the students of Aglionby Academy are still on the hunt for a legendary sleeping Welsh king. This time, while we continue to get perspectives from multiple POVs, the story primarily focuses on Ronan Lynch, a troubled and angry 17-year-old who pulls dark objects out of his dreams. But when ley lines...

    I JUST LOVE RONAN SO MUCH OK??ok I'm adding more.I really love how subtle Maggie Stiefvater is when it comes to the "big things" that happen in terms of the characters and what's going on. I don't want to talk about it too much because of spoilers, but I feel like some authors try to shove information down your throat, but Maggie knows how to do it in a much more natural, REALISTIC way, so much so that you don't even really realize she did it unt...

    ”All of us have secrets in our lives. We’re keepers or kept-from, players or played. Secrets and cockroaches – that’s what will be left at the end of it all.”Oh god what can I say about this book? I loved it!!! I loved it with all my heart and even though I never wanted it to end I still wanted to know what would happen next! XD Seriously, there is something about the way Maggie Stiefvater describes her world, how she expresses the coun...

    Reread #3:Um ya I'm obsessed I really have not got anything to say except I LOVE THIS BOOK MORE EACH TIME I READ IT. I THINK I CRUSHED MY OWN LUNGS WITH LOVE AND APPRECIATION. Ronan is, without doubt, my favourite raven boy, and I love that this is his book. His character development is phenomenal and intricate and done with heart. Like I'm bleeding emotions all over the place.Notable moments:• Ronan pretending to be badass and then also giving...

    Welp. It’s been a month of nonstop reflecting. I actually moved to a monastery in the hills of Tibet (are there hills in Tibet?) in order to bring even more clarity to my nonstop pondering. Like, I showed up, and the monks were all, “What the hell are you doing here? This is for dudes. Really pious and wise ones. We don’t just let annoying but effortlessly cool teenage girls in here.” (They were really chill in terms of verbage.)https://e...

    “If you never saw the stars, candles were enough.” (Fanart by Aymmi) I have been holding off this review for a while... (In all honesty, I'm already halfway through Blue Lily, Lily Blue and this series is kicking ass so far).There comes occasions where though it's not a 5 star book... When the rating doesn't really matter at the end, because whether you give this series one star or all the stars in the damn universe. It still is unforgettabl...

    5 Stars Overview: Re-Read, January 2018Umm, is there a better way to start off the new year?? I think I loved this even MORE if that's possibleInitial Review: February 2017I’ve been staring at an empty word document for much longer than I care to admit, trying to figure out how to put into words HOW MUCH I FREAKING LOVED this. Though I really enjoyed the writing in the first book, it completely blew me away here. The words were all perfectly ch...

    Re/read on audible MY BLOG: Melissa Martin's Reading ListI LOVE THESE RAVEN BOYS!Even though all of the boys are in the book, this one tells more of Ronan's story and I love him ♥I still love Blue, I think she is a great character. I love her family, all of the banter between them, the sweetness between Blue and her mom - just everything! I feel bad that Blue has to go through all of these emotions with Adam and Gansey. Blue knows that she love...

    3.5/5 StarsRonan Lynch is probably one the most well written character to ever exist in the entire YA genre.The Dream Thieves, the second book in The Raven Cycle series, to say it in a few words is what I think how every book in the YA genre should strive to achieve in their characters development. I have heard a lot of great things about Ronan Lynch and I finally understood why this character is really beloved by every reader I know. Almost the ...

    Excuse me for a moment while I go slap myself senseless for having resisted this long. It took months to get here but I finally made it. I read the raven boys last summer and though I enjoyed it and swore to finish the series by the end of the summer, other books ended up getting in the way while my attention kept going where the wind blew. Judge me not…✨ Plot:After the events of The Raven Boys, all the mysteries that were left unanswered and...
    When Taylor Swift (??) songs start reminding you of Ronan Lynch (??) oh yes, it's time for a reread "In and out,Like a motherfucking thief." I feel this intense love for Ronan that no other character shares. I've been obsessed with him since he first showed up, and it's only gotten worse after that. I enjoy reading about Gansey, Adam, Blue, Noah, but when Ronan is on pages it's like they come to life. I'm telling you, it's not normal the way i ...

    “While I'm gone," Gansey said, pausing, "dream me the world. Something new for every night.”Well, obviously, Maggie Stiefvater can do amazing things with words. Beautiful things like this series. I was transfixed with The Dream Thieves. It's another fascinating novel made by a brilliant author.Some things still irritate me though. My best example: Ronan Lynch. Sometimes I just want to punch him in the face, especially when he behaves like the...

    “While I'm gone, dream me the world. Something new for every night.” I feel like I just woke up from a dream. Slightly disoriented, like I can't separate reality from fiction. Like I can't remember the exact context of this bizarre dream but I can recollect scattered images and emotions. Bliss. Anger. Agony. Pain.Love. For this series and its raw, complicated and real characters. “It was mint and memories and the past and the future and ...

    ***27. March 2016***I rarely ever reread an entire series before the release of a new book, ergo my constant sequel amnesia, but this is the Raven Cycle . It's one of those books that just keeps on giving. The more you read, the more you discover. It has a really high reread factor as well because future actions shed light on past actions, turning each reread into small treasure hunts looking for those hints peppered into the story. And the cha...

    This was supposed to be a BR with this bitch, but she decided to read without me and then DNF it halfway in because it was too boring. I'm questioning our friendship too. So like, I'm going to force her to finish this and BR the next book with me. When I finished The Raven Boys, I was left confused and bored and didn't really want to pick up this book because I didn't want to read something that was confusing as fuck and boring as fuck, but HOW W...

    Rex Corvus, parate Regis Corvi.The Raven King, make way for The Raven King. *rolls out the red carpet I hand-stitched myself*One word: Ronan. Ronan, Ronan, my dearest snake, Ronan. This book would be amazing just on the basis that it features an exclusive look at one of the most enigmatic characters in the series. Although, that isn't saying much seeing as all the characters are onions of mystery. However, Maggie Stiefvater is a gifted storytell...

No one is more flabbergasted than me to realize - to confirm - that Ronan Lynch is undoubtedly my favorite.RONAN. FREAKING.
