My thoughts on The Raven Boys has to start with why have I only just read this now?

I mean it has all the things I love. I mean I don’t normal go for a supernatural style book if I should even call it that. I feel for everyone of the characters. (Except Whelk haahaa no.)

I love Blue how she makes people stronger be it through touch or words. She is so independent I love that.

Gansey is adorable when he gets excited about Glendower. He can mess up but he knows it. He is big brother to the other three.

Noah is precious. I am so happy that he is staying in the series. He makes me smile petting Blue’s hair.

Adam. Oh Adam deserves better then his shitty family. When I read the part he was being beaten. I was like come on son get up. You can do it. He is now deaf in one ear. I hope I see more on his way of getting used to that.

Ronan fucking Lynch. You legend. Not only did you beat the shit out of Adam’s dad. I adopted you and you are tol son. I will always picture a young Wentworth Miller when I read about you. Though we need to talk. WHAT DID YOU DO TO CHAINSAW!!!? Okay I’m calm.

I need to carry on with book 2 but part of me wants to let the first one soak in.

I am loving this series and I couldn’t recommend it more if I tried so try it maybe.

i’m legitimately laughing bc depending on where you began the story, it was about richard campbell gansey iii turning around from his best friends for two seconds to ogle at a girl and when he looks back, two of them are frenching and the other has been dead the whole time

the best parts of the raven boys (featuring me crying)

- adam and ronan literally dragging each other on moving dollys behind the bmw like what nerds

- “if it had a social security number, ronan had fought with it”

- noah told them like 400 times that he was dead why was this news

- ronan being so extra about picking fights with declan. school? sure. monmouth? hell yea. nino’s parking lot? let’s fuckin go!!!

- the first thing blue ever sees ronan do is run into the light hanging above the booth at nino’s #clumsygay™

- ronan’s number on the nino’s bathroom stall door (honestly what the fuck)

- president cell phone

- gansey describing his friends as “the sulky one” and “the smudgy one”

- take a shot every time blue or adam call gansey condescending
