This week, I absolutely can't wait for...

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
September 18th, 2012

Filled with mystery, romance, and the supernatural, The Raven Boys introduces readers to Richard “Dick” Campbell Gansey, III and Blue Sargent. Gansey has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on the hunt to find Glendower, a vanished Welsh king. Legend has it that the first person to find him will be granted a wish—either by seeing him open his eyes, or by cutting out his heart. 
Blue Sargent, the daughter of the town psychic in Henrietta, Virginia, has been told for as long as she can remember that if she ever kisses her true love, he will die. But she is too practical to believe in things like true love. Her policy is to stay away from the rich boys at the prestigious Aglionby Academy. The boys there—known as Raven Boys—can only mean trouble. When Gansey and his Raven Boy friends come into her life, Blue realizes how true this is. She never thought her fortune would be a problem. But she was wrong. 
I loved Maggie Stiefvater's Wolves of Mercy Falls series and LOVED The Scorpio Races. So, I definitely CANNOT wait to read The Raven Boys! Maggie manages to write the most coolest stories and about the coolest mythological creatures. Like water horses? Umm... That was pretty amazing.

What are you waiting for today?
