Waiting on Wednesday (19)

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by breakingthespine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's most anticipated book is:
The Raven Boys

“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 so excited for The Raven Boys! It sounds so original and, of course, utterly amazing! 
What are you waiting on this Wednesday? 


  1. It does sound incredibly original! Thanks for sharing! :)

  2. I read and loved Mercy Falls but this is really intriguing, I feel this is darker than the emotionally ridden werewolf series she had.

    Talk Supe WoW

  3. I keep seeing this book around but haven't decided if I should read it or not. I'll probably wait for the reviews before I decide. :)

    Thanks for the follow! I've followed you back via Linky.

  4. Oh, this book sounds awesome, for sure! I didn't finish Maggie's book, Shiver, but I do have high hopes for this one. It just sounds too amazing. And I really like the cover. :D Awesome pick, Rachel! :)
