The Raven Cycle: Why The Melissa Loooooves Adam


Sadly, I was the last one on the Raven Boys bandwagon, but I've made up for it with my overwhelming love and devotion for the series. ;) Like Ally mentioned in her post, we know each other quite well. Just as Lee called Ally's love for Ronan, Ally knew I would like Adam. Now, don't get me wrong, I love all of the characters dearly, but Adam is my favorite. There are so many reasons why I love Adam. He is so sweet and smart and sensitive and exactly my type of guy. I really admire him for always working so hard to be successful and always wanting to do things for himself. However, this leads to Adam's faults, for which I also admire him. Adam is too quick to dismiss help from his friends in favor of taking on the challenge himself. It's really hard for Adam to be surrounded by everything he has always wanted and to have to work so hard for things his friends simply inherited. I think Adam has a more relatable set of challenges than those of his wealthy friends, and I think that makes him easier to relate to. The reader really feels for Adam and his struggles. Sometimes, I wish I could just give him a hug.

I really hope that in Blue Lily, Lily Blue Adam finds some peace and happiness. I hope Adam can take a step back and accept help from his friends without seeing it as charity. I want something good to happen for Adam because he could really use a pick-me-up. Perhaps more than anything I want Adam to get together with Ronan. How fantastic would that be?! Anyway, I am crazy excited to read more about Adam! To be honest, I'm a little worried about him.


  1. Aw, don't feel too bad about being slow on The Raven Boys bandwagon - I'm pretty sure I was much later than you >.< Fortunately, Lee was there to put me on the path to Henrietta hehe When I first got into the first book, Adam was the very first one my heart went out too. Sure my heart belongs to all these boys in a way (especially Ronan ♥) but Adam was the first one I wanted to reach through the pages and hug. And let's be honest: with all the privilege in the series, it's hard to to relate to Adam and his struggles with money. Well, him and Blue of course :) And you're right, I love his faults too because somehow, they make him even more relatable! His character arc especially has such a wild card just never know how things are going to play out.

    Awesome post Melissa^^ Man, reading posts on each Raven Boy makes it stunningly clear how absolutely amazing each of these boys separately. And we're lucky enough to get them all a series :D Weeeee!

  2. Fortunately, we got on the wagon! XD It's hard not to love all the boys for their own, distinct personalities. It's a small miracle that they all work so perfectly together! Thank you! And happy reading! :D
