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: The Raven King

The Raven King: The Raven Cycle, Book 4 - Scholastic Audio, Maggie Stiefvater, Will Patton

Once again, Will Patton did a wonderful job with the narration. At the beginning of the audiobook I had kind of wished that all books in a series would get a brief recap because it's been a while since I read the first three books and I was a little lost. It didn't take me long to get back into the swing of it though.


The progression of the story flowed well, I think. I was surprised, by the truth of Capeswater and the Raven King and just all the little things pile up into one big, "WHAT?!" But in a good way. I didn't predict anything in this story, especially not Ronin and Adam! If this was obvious, where the hell was I? But I loved it. Henry was a nice edition to the group. I think there was a bit of growth for all of the characters, which is always a good thing.


I loved the ending and thought this book was a good finale to the series. I know some people didn't enjoy the series, but whateves. Good read, would probably re-read in the future.
