Book review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
Series: The Raven Cycle #3
Rating: ★★★★★

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.

Do you maybe remember how I said I couldn’t review The Dream Thieves without spoilers? Well, that’s even more true for Blue Lily, Lily Blue. THIS BOOK WAS SO GOOD. There are tons of spoilers ahead in semi-chronological order. TONS.

Also tons of caps. Sorry not sorry.

    Haha this was so much fun to read! This book is my favorite one in the series, so I really enjoyed reading through your reactions. (btw, I flipped a shit about Persephone as well haha; she was also my favorite) 😛

    Why???? I now read this book, and now I’m really regretting not picking up the other book when I was at the library. Also, this series is now so freaking amazing that I’m really going to regret ever finishing it. I may not like the first book, but the other books are better. Also why is Ronan dead? Can the author quit torturing us with these characters. They deserve to be protected, not this.
