The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle #1)
By Maggie Steifvater

4 out of 5

Blue has been told forever that she will kill her true love with a kiss. A terrible curse, but fairly avoidable. Until she sees her first ever spirit of Gansey. A boy her same age who is going to die within the next year. The only reason Blue can see him is either because he is her true love, or she is the one who kills him. In a family of psychics,  things like this are taken very seriously. But Gansey and his passionate mission to activate the ley line and find the long dead spirit and change his life has a strong pull on Blue and she just can't stay away from the adventure.

Ok, this was read in a pre-cross-atlantic-flight-won't-be-home-for-months fury. Luckily, that did not tamper the book for me. I thought it was interesting and different and I liked the characters and the story. I, unlike Blue, was instantly drawn to Gansey, but I always crush on the charming handsome boys, they are my weakness. Adam is the type of boy that would like me, and one I would actually get with, but the Ganseys of the world have an incredible pull on me :) Anyway, back to the story. I liked how it started in the beginning, we know what is going to happen. Gansey is going to die. Blue is most likely going to be the cause. And then the story unfolds. The ley lines. The generations of characters. They mystery and the endless questions that envelope the town of Henrietta. IT was an exciting read, and I definitely want to read the next book in the series, I just don't when that will be.

**Sorry, I finished this a week ago, but I have been traveling with a crazy schedule so I haven't been able to post**
