"What were you looking at?” She was shivering, hungry, ready for bed even as the sun glinted newly at her through the glass door to the backyard.
“Everything,” Persephone answered, selecting a very cold and withered piece of okra to take with her. “And letting it look at us.”

I love Maura, Calla and Persephone!
Those three women are just amazing! <333

My only complaint:
I wish this would have been longer! XD
Truly I feel bad even marking this as read because it's straight up two pages long, and even that feels generous, but:

- I read it, and also
- I will read literally anything in this series, even if
- Gansey is never mentioned, because
- I still like Blue and Maura and Persephone and Calla and 300 Fox Way and Blue's room with her chili-pepper lights enough to read even an utterly pointless 2-pager about any and all of them.
4.5 stars

I love reading snippets contributing to a series or adding more insight, but really - this added nothing at all. It was just a scene of everyday life. Yes, atmosphere and setting. However, it was so short and well, meaningless :/

This was cute, but I want more!
“What do you want for Christmas, Blue? Something more.”

Oh boy, that prequel was adorable but too short, it's not faaaair! Also, this 'I want something more' is a bit emotional - you know, a beautiful friendship and partnership was build between Blue, Noah, Adam, Gansey and Ronan sometime after this, and it means a lot.

This teeny-tiny little snippet of what the world of the Raven Boys is like during the holidays is so lovely. It makes me want to jump back into the Raven Cycle and really savor it, because I feel like that is a series that demands to be read more than once so you can make sense of it all. As always, Maggie Stiefvater's writing was lovely, and getting a peek into Blue's life and the craziness of her household was as lively and fun as ever.

Blue hadn’t asked to sit with them again. Everything wasn’t something she was ever going to see.

5/5 stars!

Way too short, I wanted more! I think I'm craving to dive back into The Raven Cycle.
it's no surprise why maggie stiefvater is one of my favourite authors when she can literally conjure up the most magical atmosphere with just 200 words 🔮

That story was so short, I'm offended.

This is a cute little short about the holiday traditions that play out at 300 Fox Way and I'm sure if you're a fan of the series then you won't be surprised that Blue's family like to do things a little differently.

I'm probably biased, it's just a snippet. But I love this series, and I love Blue and all the women of 300 Fox Way, and I think it's super sweet for Maggie Stiefvater to give us this small glimpse into the Christmas festivities of these beloved characters.

I love Blue Sargent with all my heart so this was a really sweet and great read! I really do miss this series and this little story has truly blessed me and left me wanting even more!

AAARRGGHH! It's barely a couple of pages long and yet Maggie Stiefvater manages to make it magical! BUT WHY IS IT SO SHORT?? I want more! After reading this, I've suddenly gotten a craving to know more about Blue before the Raven boys came along. How was life at 300 Fox Way? How was school? Who was Blue friends with? What were her hobbies?


I was kind of disappointed by the fact that there was barely any dialogue in the piece because I know Orla talking wo

If you're going to write a two page short story as a snippet prequel to The Raven Boys, you've got to do it right. Maggie does it right =]

While this wasn't my favorite it still was pretty good. This was a short holiday piece about what goes on at Fox Way during Christmas. I loved the description of how the house was set up and Blue's reaction to her family's psychic abilities. It was a fun, short little piece.

I finished The Dream Thieves a little while ago, went to check when The Raven King comes out (because I couldn't for the life of me remember the date) and saw that this short story along with another one existed and got super confused which promptly shifted to excitement and I sat down to read them immediately.

This was an interesting glimpse of their lives. Cute, short, and definitely something I wish I would've read back in December instead of the first day of spring (even though we woke up to

Cute, but I wish it had a bit more whimsy. Though seriously, hay does get everywhere, especially in socks.

This was very short. There's like nothing to add to the main story. I was not expecting that, I was hoping to be longer.
We only have Maura, Calla, Persephone and Blue at the Christmas time. And that's it.
