Waiting on Wednesday: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

Raven-BoysHelllooooooo and good morning on this Waiting on Wednesday. Since Crazy Camper is swamped at work, I am going to pinch-hit for her today here at YAF and WS. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and is all about what books we can't wait to get our hands on.

Now it is no secret that I liked The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater (my review). So imagine my excitement when this fabulous author announced the FIRST TWO CHAPTERS of her next book, The Raven Boys, were available.

GASP! EXCITEMENT! GASP! You can read them here. In an obvious turn of events, I am adding this book to my must read list, as soon as September 18, 2012 rolls around.

"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: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little. For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore." (Good Reads)

This looks like it will be great, no?! (If you don't think so you are probably wrong.) Share your WoW below!

  3. Haha, yeah, I think it'll probably be very good, though I'm not sure, to be honest. *g*

  4. I'm not a fan of the Shiver series, but I LOVED Scorpio Races, so I'm curious to see which of those this book is more like. Love the cover!
