Hello everyone! I'll have you know, I had to speed through this book today in order to get this post up. agh. But it's here and it's not going to be great since I'm dead tired but I will do it. For my pride. Where am I going with this? No one knows. Let's just get into the review. Today I will be reviewing/fangirling about Blue Lily, Lily Blue, the third book in the Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater. WHOOP.
“Desire and dread lay right next to each other in his heart, each sharpening the other.”
There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.
Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs. The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.
Friends can betray. Mothers can disappear. Visions can mislead. Certainties can unravel.
this book was again, a rollercoaster ride for me, but more of a rollercoaster ride of do I like it, or do I not?
Honestly, I didn't like it as much I as I loved the other two. It didn't stick out to me. I thought the plot was a little lame, and nothing was really special, until the ending.
The Dream Thieves was exciting, Ronan's story and how it centered around him was exciting, everything about it was exciting, the whole thing and all the events and how they just put so much action into the story. This was just, not enough?
I really liked it with the hilarious banter and all the dialogue and the relationships between the characters, it was fun to read and fun to flail around laughing because it was just too adorable.
“Gansey was not sleeping.
Because Blue had no cell phone, there was no way for him to break the rules and call her. Instead, he had begun to instead lie in his bed each night, eyes closed, hand resting on his phone, waiting to see if she was going to call him from the Phone/Sewing/Cat Room at her house.
Stop it, he told himself. Stop wanting it —
His phone buzzed.
He put it to his ear.
“You’re still not Congress, I see.”
He was wide-awake.”
those phone scenes.
But the plot, like said before, wasn't enough. It was just a little filler with a couple big events, that I really enjoyed. Other than that, it didn't pull me in like the other two did, which I was disappointed about.
BIG EVENTS THAT I REALLY ENJOYED - WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS
- The Greenmantle situation. I loved this, I loved Greenmantle's character and how it went throughout the story. He was so casual and I just really liked it and his POVs. But I especially loved Piper, his wife, she was hilarious and really cool and I'm honestly not afraid to say that I really liked her.
- The Gwenllian situation. THIS PART. THIS WAS HILARIOUS AND JUST REALLY INTERESTING. I read the big spoiler and I was like woAhWOaHwoAH. she's who now? It made me so excited and then I read how she was crazy and I was like wonderful. I feel like everything she says is a double meaning and I'd really love to learn more about her character in TRK.
- The whole ending situation. the ending was just, wow. wOW. So much happened, we see Blue's father and we find Maura and Piper (?) dies and Blue is amazing and Mr. Grey breaks my heart. I really love Mr. Grey, and I really hope he will be a fatherly figure in Blue's life. if he doesn't die.

Okay, so I kinda skimmed because I haven't read The Dream Thieves yet and because of spoilers. BUT it sounds awesome! And the phone conversation sounds so cute. They are all always so adorable!ReplyDelete
YELLS. The Raven Cycle is one of my favorite series. Reading your review has refreshed my memory and just made me smile like a loon. Baha the banter is also my favorite! Awesome post c: I'm currently reading The Raven King. Can't wait to see how that goes.ReplyDelete
I did find the plot a bit lacking or maybe it dragged or something! The characters were gold, as always. I liked Greenmantle too, he was pretty funny.ReplyDelete
