The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
First Published September 1stt 2012 by Scholastic Press
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them–until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her.
His name is Gansey, 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 is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher 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 doesn’t believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.
So much love and hype. Thoughts about this book, anyone? I’m planning to purchase a copy of this in the upcoming book fair!
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
First Published July 28th 2015 by Henry Holt and Company
Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price—and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone…
A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.
Kaz’s crew are the only ones who might stand between the world and destruction—if they don’t kill each other first.
Since this is a duology and Crooked Kingdom comes out in a few weeks, do you guys think? I personally enjoyed the Shadow and Bone trilogy, although that didn’t really live up to the hype.
Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Published June 7th 2011 by Quirk
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.
A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.
A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
MOVIE is out this month, and it sounds awesome! Tim Burton adaptation! What’s up with that?!
All of these books have been high up in my TBR pile, and can you bookworms give me thoughts on which one of these should I read this month?
As I’m writing this, I’ve so far read Empire of Storms by Sarah J. Maas, and I’m looking forward to a buddy reading An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir with my friend Inja from Planet Inja.
Thanks & Happy reading everyone! ♡
