The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

I love everything about this cover – the coloring, the bold lettering, that creepy feeling you get from just looking at it – definitely makes me want to know more about this book.

Filled with mystery, romance, and the supernatural, The Raven Boys introduces readers to Richard “Dick” Campbell Gansey, III and Blue Sargent. Gansey has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on the hunt to find Glendower, a vanished Welsh king. Legend has it that the first person to find him will be granted a wish—either by seeing him open his eyes, or by cutting out his heart.

Blue Sargent, the daughter of the town psychic in Henrietta, Virginia, has been told for as long as she can remember that if she ever kisses her true love, he will die. But she is too practical to believe in things like true love. Her policy is to stay away from the rich boys at the prestigious Aglionby Academy. The boys there—known as Raven Boys—can only mean trouble. When Gansey and his Raven Boy friends come into her life, Blue realizes how true this is. She never thought her fortune would be a problem. But she was wrong.

  1. I am torn with this one… I like the cover, but the description doesn't really capture me. That being said, I will read anything Maggie Stiefvater writes, so I'm sure I'll love it!

  2. I like this one a lot. The start white background is great contrast to the dark black raven. I'm curious about the reds in the bird. I also like how the design incorporates the title without being overly intrusive to the images.
