Coming Soon: The Raven Cycle Week 2016

It's April, which means that Maggie Stiefvater's THE RAVEN KING RELEASES ON APRIL 26TH!!!! CAN YOU TELL I'M A LITTLE EXCITED ABOUT THIS?????!!!!!!!

Back when Blue Lily, Lily Blue released in 2014, we did a week of Raven Cycle-themed posts. Since The Raven King marks the end of the series, I couldn't let that go by without another week dedicated to one of my most beloved series. Unfortunately, Ally and Melissa will most likely be sitting this one out because they're both coming up on finals for the semester. I'm carrying on, though, and have tentatively set this schedule for the week of April 18, the week before the release of The Raven King:

  • Monday, April 18: A post about everyone's favorite raven, Chainsaw!
  • Tuesday, April 19: Questions, Thoughts, and Theories about The Raven King
  • Wednesday, April 20: The Friendship
  • Friday, April 22: Gansey Must Live!

If you love The Raven Cycle, too, please feel free to join in posting during the week of the 18th! This is all very informal; if you're interested, you're welcome to also post about any of the topics I've already mentioned or any of your own choosing, whenever might suit your schedule during that week. I'll probably put up one of those linky things, too.

I've been anticipating the release of this book since I finished Blue Lily, Lily Blue, and now that it's almost here, I still don't feel prepared. I don't want to say goodbye to Blue and the Raven Boys! :'(


  1. Eeeep! It's almost here Lee *HUGS* I've never been more torn between wanting a book and simultaneously NOT being ready for it! I'm terrified of what will happen and who will die *SOB* but at the same time, I MUST KNOW ALL THE THINGS. As far as your wonderful Raven Week return, I was supposed to have a slow week this week but ended up being called into work last minute on my days off *grumbles* but next week is SUPPOSED to be quiet so I'll try to whip up a post or two (I hope!) I can't wait to see what you come up with this year :D

    1. *HUGS* It's finally sinking in that the end of TRC is soooo close! :O I completely get what you mean about wanting to read it while also kind of dreading it. But, we're here for each other, and we'll get through it- whatever happens! ♥

  2. I really need to start this series, I remember when the first book came out, everyone was going crazy over it, but I wasn't sure on the sound of it. Now I feel like I should give it a go and see what everyone's talking about.

    Reading the synopsis now, it actually sounds really interesting to me! I guess reading preferences change...

    1. I was also a little skeptical of The Raven Boys when it was first released because the previous Maggie Stiefvater book that I'd read didn't really click with me. But I'm so, so happy that I gave The Raven Boys a shot; the whole series has become an all-time fave of mine!
