The book chosen from September Poll was:

The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle, #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
By Maggie Stiefvater (Goodreads Author)

“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”

It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore

I´m having some problems in getting into this book, hope it changes if not it will take me ages to read it.... I´m not really used to the writing style and since I´m reading in English which is not my 1st language it´s even harder....

This book is really different from what I normally read...
I´m already 31% and I´m happy that I didn´t give up on it...beacuse I was tempted to DNF...I think for me this is a very difficult book to read and even there are things that I don´t understand...but I hope I will get there!!!
