The Raven Boys

Author: Maggie Stiefvater

Grade: A

After putting it off for way too long I finally read the entire Raven Cycle series! I started it right after Labor Day and finished it last week! Maybe it’s just a case of the whole series being done and there for me but I really loved it. I had put this off in large part because I could barely finish Shiver a couple years back so I was nervous I wouldn’t enjoy this.

I try to keep it spoiler free below!
