Bookish Blerd

I'm a book buying junkie who buys books faster than I can read them. But what better way is there to live than surrounded by books?! I read as much as I can and I do my best to give coherent reviews...which doesn't always happen.  I enjoy many genres, which is likely the reason I struggle with deciding my next read.

Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue

Blue Lily, Lily Blue - Maggie Stiefvater

I really love the way the series is progressing.


This books has a bit more angst as Blue is worrying over her missing mother and her feelings for Gansey are getting harder to keep at bay.  I love that was there was some growth from Adam who has finally realized what an idiot he has been.  Ronin is...well Ronin.  He's a jerk, but he's a loyal jerk who cares about his friends more than he'd ever admit.  And I love Jesse Dittley and the fact that he nicknamed Blue, 'Ant'!  There are a few more characters in this book, but the main cast of characters does not get lost in the story, which is fantastic writing.


They've made progress in finding the Raven King as well as Maura, but things are getting ever more dangerous for the group.  All-in-all this was a great continuation of the series, and it sets up for the next book beautifully.
