The Raven Boys
by Maggie Stiefvater
Rich Boy is trying to find the tomb of a dead legendary king. Helping him are his three BFFs: Angry Rich Boy, Quiet Rich Boy (you might say he's quiet as the grave) and I'm Not A Rich Boy, I am Going To This School on Scholarship and am Super Prickly About It.
And there new friend, Blue.
Who is literally named Blue. And no, she does not want to hear about it. She also cannot kiss her true love. Or he will die.
So yeah, not a lot of kissing going on in this series (because the last thing she wants to do is kiss some guy who she thinks isn't her True Love and then he dies and....)
Reasons to read:
- Old car love
- Narration is funny
- Will also make you cry
- Dead people
- There is this one relationship that just appears out of nowhere in the final book. Nothing leading up to it...
The writing was well done, but it wasn't my cup of tea
Six of Crows
by Leigh Bardugo
In fact, everybody is cute.
I mean, you've got Kaz. Who is like the worst guy on the block even though he is seventeen. Don't try and double cross him or you will be sorry.
And Inej. The knife throwing, wall climbing girl known as the Wraith and....
*I am TRYING to write something vaguely intelligent, but I'm still fangirling over this book so maybe I should just try back later?*
Reasons to read:
- Kaz is such a slytherin. His whole life is centered around greed (and revenge)
- Kaz has a bad leg and has to walk with a cane. (A cane he uses to beat people up with)
- So much stabbing. So much plotting. Heists.
- And the ships! Tell them about the ships!
The False Prince
by Jennifer A. Nielson
A dastardly plot to take over the throne and a very, very clever boy who just might be able to stop them. Or maybe just not die. That would be good.
Reasons to Read:
- So much sass
- Like, Percy Jackson style sass
- But in the middle ages
- THE POWER OF FRIENDSHIP
- Plotting and scheming
- No swearing, so Rebellious Writing approved.
- Read it
