I really enjoyed this book! Have you seen the cover for book three in this series? It is a little different from the first two but still pretty cool. Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, #3) by Maggie Stiefvater

Jennifer (featherlashes) I'm sure I'm in the minority here but I have DNF'd every Maggie Stiefvater book I have started. I just can't get into it- which is really sad because the book synopsis of all her stories sound really interesting! Maybe I'll pick this one back up and try again. I'll wait and see what other group members' experiences are like.

Have you tried the audio? It is amazing!

Good idea, I'll check out the audio this time around :)

Will Patton narrates it. His voice is warm and smooth like honey. It makes me want to curl up in a comfy chair with a blanket and listen to his voice.

Yep, I have the audio for this one and loved it.

I read somewhere that the author was the made up model for this cover. That was just awesome.


Jennifer (featherlashes) So, so sad to say that the second attempt to read this one was just as bad as my first. I guess it's just not for me :(
Here's my review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...


Tracey (addicted_to_reading) It took me a while to get into the story but I loved it once every character was fully introduced to one another. The supernatural aspect of the story was it's selling point and the characters were amazing. The author writes them in a way that makes me care for them. I cannot wait to read the second book. I hope we get more of Noah the second time around.
