Waiting on Wednesday (#4)

Waiting on Wednesday is a Book Hop  hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

This week's pick is:
Raven Boys by: Maggie Stiefvater

 " '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: 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.

From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of theShiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races, comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we’ve never been before."

Release Date: September 18, 2012

I'm pretty excited for this book. Maggie is a remarkable writer. Her writing descriptions make me quite envious being a writer myself. I really enjoyed The Scorpio Races. The Shiver Trilogy was pretty good too. While I wait for this book I definitely plan on reading her Books of Faerie series in the meantime!  


  1. OMG The Raven Boys was really really good was a total set up for book 2. Whatever is in book 2 better be action filled!

  2. I can't wait to read this book either. Absolutely loved everything I've read of hers so far (which was only two books...but still.). Great pick!

    1. I thought she wrote more than two books? She's written a lot. Anyways, thanks!

  3. OMG I totally want this book ever since I fell in love with Shiver! Great pick!
