The Raven Boys - by Maggie Stiefvater
17 July 2018
I listened to this as an audiobook.
I think that Ronan was possibly my favourite character. Seeing him stand up for Adam, wanting to help Noah (even though the way he planned to probably wasn't the right way), and the way that he cared for Chainsaw was lovely as he didn't care about much.
Noah was probably my second favourite. I don't think I could even tell you why, other than he's a softie who likes to pat Blue's hair floof and must be protected with love.
My hope is that in the next book that Ronan and Declan finally sort out whatever's between them and at least try and get along a little better.
I liked that the book was petty much about a self-made quest. It wasn't that they needed to do anything, it's that Gansey and the others wanted to do it. To find Glendover and prove that they've accomplished something.
Another thing that I liked about this book was the part about seeing someone on St. Mark's Eve if you weren't a seer. That you would either kill them or you were there true love. You never know which one it will be and my guess is that it would sort of plague you until you found out one way or another.
