    I only need one thing----> Ronan x Adam. The story picks up where it left off. Boys are starting school again and Blue's mother is still missing. They're still trying to find Glendower, the long lost king. Gray Man's employed is in Henrietta looking for a payback. Now, I don't want to reveal anything else about the plot cause even the blurb is rather vague. What I want to talk about are the characters. It seems Adam is the main one this time. Oth...

    I know, I know. Please don't judge me, I'm sick.But it's the sweetest kind of addiction. The one that doesn't let you sleep at nights because your thoughts wander into faraway lands and your heart beats fast for the people you came to love deeply even though they're the products of someone else's brilliant mind and beautiful soul. And I'm not alone, because I'll see you all in therapy, right? Right? “Queens and kingsKings and QueensBlue lily, ...

    “Humans were so circular; they lived the same slow cycles of joy and misery over and over, never learning. Every lesson in the universe had to be taught billions of times, and it never stuck.”Oh my!!! She did it once again!Whenever I’m convinced that Maggie’s last book was already the peak of perfection she always manages to persuade me otherwise! I don’t really know how she does it, but she’s soo damn good at what she does that it’...

    You might want to underestimate this 4 stars rating slightly.The Raven Cycle continue to improved with each installment and this is literally the second time I ever gave a 4 star rating to a YA book (the first being 'Crooked Kingdom' by Leigh Bardugo) as I’m not a fan of the genre. Blue Lily, Lily Blue (BLLB) will probably be an easy 5 stars read for those of you who have no qualm with the genre in general.One of the problem I had with 'The Dre...

    5 Stars Overview: Re-ReadUmm... I don't have more to add except that I love this book and it's one of my all-time favorites? I appreciate so much more this time around and all of these characters are phenomenal.Except Cheng, who exists here only to set his character up for the next book. And Maura, who continues to make bad decisions always.Original Review Here’s the thing with this series. The plot is… odd. You open the first book expecting ...

    “Mornings like this one were made for memories.” Isn't it the most obscure and abnormal concept that a book filled with random sequences of the alphabet put together to make some sense, can act as a catalyst to generate a chemistry lab full of emotions? Essentially, you could have an infinite amount of books with the same character count as an airline flight safety manual, but those random string of words put together in just a handful of bo...

    ×××May contain minor spoilers××× "Queens and kingsKings and queensBlue lily, lily blueCrowns and birdsSwords and thingsBlue lily, lily blue" This book is nothing like I expected. This book was everything I wanted it to be. The book gave me chills, it broke my heart. It made me laugh, it made me mad. It made me crazy. It made me cry - not a lot, not as much as The Raven Boys or The Dream Thieves but little silent tears pooling up in my ey...

    “There was something unfamiliar about him. Something ferocious about his eyes, some sort of bite in his faint smile. Something altogether hectic and unsettled. She stood on the ledge of his smile and looked over the edge.”Even though I always feel like I don't understand a thing that is going on in those books, they are just beautiful. Maybe exactly because I don't understand a thing: They always surprise me, I never know what to expect next ...

    "Queens and KingsKings and QueensBlue lily, lily blueCrowns and birds Swords and thingsBlue lily, lily blue" I just bought about 16 books last week but they all can wait. I'm going to re-read this baby first! You know why? Because Ronan freaking Lynch, and Adam Parrish live in this.

    "Don't wake the third sleeper."Okay. I can do this. Just to be clear, I have to say that this is probably my favourite series of all time and I'm not even going to pretend that I can be coherent when it comes to it. Even now, after finishing the third book, I'm amazed at how many details Stiefvater put into this book. Right now I want to quote half the book. I devoured it and I never wanted it to end. Yes, it is that series for me, the one that a...

    ▒ My ten favorite things about Blue Lily, Lily Blue ▒ "Ronan kept going, his voice louder. "No. Do you hear me, Cabeswater? You promised to keep me safe. Who are we to you? Nothing? If you let him die, that is not keeping me safe. Do you understand? If they die, I die, too." To the surprise of absolutely nobody, Ronan takes the first place hands down even without having any chapter from his point of view. Actually, after the intensity of The...

    “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.” This is my favorite so far, I'm in love! “Queens and kings, Kings and queens. Blue lily, lily blue, Crowns and birds. Swords and things, Blue lily, lily blue” I feel like a lot of things right now, I just finished th...

    “Queens and kings, Kings and queensBlue lily, lily blue, Crowns and birds Swords and things, Blue lily, lily blue” This series has reduced me to a barely functioning mess, making fan art and listening to fan mixes in my spare time. Which isn't anything wrong, except responsibilities. Responsibilities I have grossly neglected that really need to stop being grossly neglected. These books just suck you in and take you prisoner. I feel like Maggi...

    #1 The Raven Boys ★★★★★ #2 The Dream Thieves ★★★★★#3 Blue Lily, Lily Blue ★★★★★#4 The Raven King ??? 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. Where do I even begin? This review took me six weeks to write, and it's literally on...

    Update 2/20/17 - Lowering my rating from 4 stars to 3 because although this was the most enjoyable book of this series that I've read, my enjoyment was not that great. Finally caught up on The Raven Cycle! I've been more open about this series than I usually am on Goodreads, so I wanted to update you on my feelings on this third installment. To backtrack, I gave The Raven Boys one of my all time-lowest ratings for a book on here. I REALLY did not...

    "She said, "I just want to pretend. I want to pretend that I could."He breathed out.What was a kiss without a kiss?"This book stole my heart. ♡ And I have to confess that it's because I have fallen completely in love with Gansey.My heart ached during every scene with him and Blue. Their midnight phone calls. All the things they want to tell each other but can't. Every stolen moment and every touch. Every almost kiss. The heart wants what it wan...

    1st Read: January 20152nd Read: March 2016Idek how it's possibly...BUT 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...
