Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

BLLBThere is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.

Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.

The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.

Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.

OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES:  The Raven Boys & The Dream Thieves

Story Breakdown:  Following The Dream Thieves we continue to follow Blue and her Raven Boys as they hunt for clues to the location of Glendower.  Obvious hijinks and dangerous situations arise.

Character Highlights:

Blue – I still love her and her family.  These are my people with their weird sense of humor.

Gansey – GAH.  All the feels.  It hurts to even think about him right now.

Jesse – WHAT A WONDERFUL ADDITION TO THE STORY.

Overall Thoughts:  GUYS.  What did I just read?!  This series picks up so much strength with each installment that I couldn’t read this one more than 50 pages or so at a time and took breaks (sometimes for weeks) between reading them.  Every time I picked it back up my stomach was in knots the entire time.  I’m blown away by the amount of theories and information rolling around in my head.  I loved every single page, love the characters 1,000 times more, and will sit here is shock waiting for final (OH GOD WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?!) book for the cycle to conclude.  This is an absolute must read and a guaranteed reread before the final book.

 

5/5

    I know, this book is amazing! I fell hard for these books the second half of this year. I cannot wait (but also I’m terrified) for the final book.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who took forever to read this one! It’s just one of those that you need time to focus on it, to absorb it and let it slowly sink in. I think I might have enjoyed this one more than the others in that there was more stuff going on. Although that’s saying something because hello I LOVED the other two! Not sure what the next book will do to me… that ending gave me the chills!
