Giveaway: THE RAVEN CYCLE by Maggie Stiefvater + Tarot Cards (US only)

 

ABOUT THE RAVEN CYCLE
Mystery, Romance and the supernatural combine in this series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater.
 
Book 1: The Raven Boys
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them--until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her. His name is Gansey, a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.
 
But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can't entirely explain. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher who notices many things but says very little.
 
For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She doesn't believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.
 
Book 2: The Dream Thieves
Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after....
 
Book 3: Blue Lily, Lily Blue
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.

Who is my favorite character? That's so tough because I adore them all. But I'm gonna have yo say Ronan. He's a badass but has such a soft spot for those he loves. And his crush in Blue Lily, Lily Blue is the cutest damn thing ever. I want him to be happy so badly. (you know, without losing the angsty Ronan-ness.)

My favorite character is definitely Ronan. He has so many layers that I'm still trying to figure out, and every time I think I know what he's about, he's about something else. He has such a fascinating story that I can't help but enjoy.

Ronan Lynch because he's sarcastic and grumpy and I love that he is protective of the people he loves and then it's a tie between Blue/Gansey.
