Raven Cycle

The Raven Boys, book 1 by Maggie Stiefvater
I like books by Maggie Stiefvater, I just wasn't planning on reading it so soon. I was going to wait for soft covers but my EReader died one day while I was at the doctor's and I can't wait at a doctor's office so I stepped out and picked this book up.
Maggie Stiefvater has written another good story. Extremely different from her Mercy Fall Series. But still fantasy. I liked the characters, even though I couldn't really relate to them. My favorite scene is when Blue is working and her names for all the Aglionby boys. Cell Phone Boy, Smudgy Boy, Soldier Boy and my favorite President Cell Phone!

Now Characters
Blue - makes her own clothes, especially likes the ripped look. Not really sure how that works. Does the ending me her powers are changing or is she still a channeling tool? Didn't really get what was going on with her hair...

Adam - my favorite until the end. I get why he became the way he did. I also like that he refused to be bought.

Noah - him in the car is an interesting scene. I like how he floats in and out

Gansey - President Cell Phone. Always says the wrong thing.

Ronan - I want to know what was meant by him creating something. I kinda get it by the last two lines of the book. But I definitely want to know more.

Chainsaw - sooo cute and super weird.

Neeve - what the hell is her story... and where did she go?

Maura - why does Blue call her Mom?? Why are all parents not parents?? Is this really how the world works?? Do honest to goodness parents not exist anymore?? Because according to books they sure don't.

Raven Cycle #2 doesn't get released until September 2013 maybe... there was a reason I shouldn't have picked this book!! But it was worth the read and I can't wait to send it to Book Lover Friend and hear her thoughts!
