The Raven Boys

The Raven Boys - 4.5 starsAt the start, I thought this would be another paranormal-esque romance, with some spooky ghost sightings, maybe some time travel and a brood of boarding school boys. Needless to say, that was fine with me. However, what I got was even better. A story of a house full of women and a warehouse full of boys who are more alike than they realize. Blue stands in the middle, drawn to the Raven boys by romantic interest and a psychic link to Gansey, and held back by what her mother and her houseful of psychics aren't telling her. My favorite part was the relationship between the boys, and I can't wait for the next one.
