Title: Blue Lily, Lily Blue (The Raven Cycle, #3)
Author: Maggie Stiefvater

There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.
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.
Literally, the first word that comes to mind is ow. Blue can’t actually kiss the guy she really likes? Ow. Anything Ronan does? Ow. Gansey literally always being close to dying because of some death road? Ow.
This book just hurts, but in the best way humanly possible.
I remember before I actually picked this book up, I really hadn’t understood why everyone wanted to get their hands on The Raven King so badly. I just knew that something really intense, or bad, must have happened at the end to make it that way. Little did I know, it was pretty much the whole book was that way in the most subtle ways possible, until the end when it was just so many feels.
Honestly, at Maggie:
I wish I had someone to fangirl about this with, but I don’t want to do that within this review and have people get spoiled by it. I’m totally obsessed with the writing, I’m obsessed with the plot, and I’m 10000% obsessed with Welsh kings at this point. All I need is some Raven boys and I’ll be good to go on my own adventure.
I hope everyone has a fantabulous day/evening/morning/whenever you’re reading this and happy reading!
