Blue Lily, Lily Blue Review

About: Blue Lily, Lily Blue, 391 pages, is a fiction novel written by Maggie Stiefvater. It was published in 10/21/2014 by Scholastic Press. The genres are fantasy, paranormal, young adult, and magic. There are 4 books in The Raven Cycle series: 1. The Raven Boys, 2. The Dream Thieves, 3. Blue Lily, Lily Blue, and 4. The Raven King. This author lives in Virginia and has written a few other books. The book setting is also in Virginia. She won awards for these books.

My Experience: I started reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue on 8/2/16 and finished it on 8/7/16. This book started out interesting. The story surrounding Lily is not what I was expecting. The writing is still great but I feel more lost about the plot than ever. It would have been great if the characters could share with readers their strategic planning steps to finding what they are looking for. There were a few new characters introduced into this book and they brought some new mystery into the story. The covers in this series are too amazing! I need to read this series again and hopefully understand better.

Pro: the title of the book is mentioned in the book, which is nice

Con: lack of research and planning,

I rate it 4 stars!

    Thank you for this honest review, I’ve been wondering whether to read this series for a long time, hearing mixed reviews on it constantly! I think I’ll give this series a pass for now, maybe borrowing the first from the library just to see if I enjoy it or not. This blog has been so helpful!

    A nice, honest review. Something’s kept me away from this series, and I don’t know what. I liked the Shiver series. But this one seemed a little weird to me, I’ll just have to put it on my mental “maybe” list. Thanks for the heads up!

      The Shiver series doesn’t get any hype at all. I don’t see anyone review it. I read this raven cycle series because everyone seems to read it and there are a lot of 5 stars. I think they rate 5 stars for the covers and the characters but the main plot is just plain weird.
