“Is this how we make our way to death? Blue wondered. A stumbling fade-out instead of a self-aware finale?”
This is the first book that i have picked up and finished in quite a while. And by that i mean I sadly was in a slump for over a month and a half. That is a really long time to not be reading for me.
I went into The Raven Boys basically blind. I had briefly read the back of the book many months ago when I first bought it. Other than that i had no idea what this book was about, despite it being very popular on the internet, I was able to avoid spoilers. I absolutely loved this book. The plot, the characters, and the writing. The writing was gorgeous, and flowing, and seemed to match the characters.
The beginning of the book felt a little slow to me. It took me a little while to really get into it, but when I did it became more fast paced and I read the rest of the book very quickly.
I loved the plot itself. I was continuously being surprised by events that were happening. There was so much that I did not see coming. I also just loved all the involvement of History and psychics. I loved all the characters too. There was just something to love about all of them. I could also relate to to most of them on one thing or another. Not to mention all the character development that went on during the plot of this book.
