Book Review: “Blue Lily, Lily Blue” by Maggie Stiefvater

Warning: I am about to gush.

This is the third book in the Raven Cycle Quartet, a broody, intense and all-around awesome series. Usually when I hear the words “boarding school” and “forbidden love” I put the book back on the shelf, but this series managed to undo all of my preconceptions. I love this series, if you haven’t figured it out by now. The main character is Blue, a girl who grows up in a house full of psychics. All her life she’s been told that if she kisses her true love, he’ll die.

Wait! I know what you’re thinking…

…TEEN LIT!! Ack, run away!!! It’s really, really well written teen lit, though. The writing pulls you in and envelopes you, and the world building is exquisite—the magic is mixed with mythology in unexpected ways. If you liked Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, I heartily recommend this.

If you remain unconvinced by this review, google the book, as I don’t think I have managed to convey just how awesome this series is.

Long live!
