Don't remember me. Best audiobooks in English. Best audiobooks in English pinned post 2 Aug Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself. One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams.
And sometimes he's not the only one who wants those things. Ronan is one of the raven boys—a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy.
The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan's secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface—changing everything in its wake.
Of The Raven Boys, Entertainment Weekly wrote, "Maggie Stiefvater's can't-put-it-down paranormal adventure will leave you clamoring for book two. Maggie Stiefvater. The Dream Thieves 1 of 7. The Dream Thieves 2 of 7. The Dream Thieves 3 of 7. The Dream Thieves 4 of 7. The Dream Thieves 5 of 7. And Ronan chasing after love Kavinsky in all the wrong places.
And then I think there's a theme about being controlled and controlling. Ronan looks for control over his dreams with Kavinsky. And Gansey constantly feels anxious if he can't control a situation. Like someone please get Ronan a kiddie-leash; he should not be allowed on his own.
And I cry when Adam fights with Gansey. This is why I get so angry at Adam. She seems to exist on yogurt and broccoli. Squishy gay little nasty Ronan. She wore a dress Ronan thought looked like a lampshade. Whatever sort of lamp it belonged on, Gansey clearly wished he had one.
Ronan wasn't a fan of lamps. Don't be subtle there, Ronan. I forget he kills himself I'm really sad. That's Ronan's last thoughts of him: And the dragon was Kavinisky. What a pathetic and pointless life.
I mean, I'd go mad. It was so delightfully cluttered and sprawly and exceptionally described. In like a few sentences she can describe something and I actually see it and want to be there. I AM there. I absolutely love this book. It swallowed me, okay? It's one of the few books I actually don't care if it takes me aaaages to read.
Plus I laugh out loud! And that is NOT a usual thing. Maggie Stiefvater is a wizard word wielder and I will read anything by her, no regrets. View all 37 comments. I actually moved to a monastery in the hills of Tibet are there hills in Tibet? This is for dudes.
Really pious and wise ones. But then I looked up from u Welp. We can go with my only concrete negative opinion as of this moment: The not like other girls trope rears its ugly head in this book. Maybe the Tibetan monks taught me a respect for truth and justice and, like, evidence? I am very boring now, and also in love with Blue.
What do I do, bro? Hey man. Time is a circle. I really might have to read her entire collected works just because of it. Get it?
I often felt Which I hate. Moving on. I was told this book would make me love, or at least like, Ronan. And it Almost overexplained. Also, Adam was so whiny and annoying this whole time. He is so spooky and cute. My favorite. Blue was somewhat cool still.
I do love reading about her house and her relatives. Ahhh, Gansey. My head has become a heart eyes emoji. I am an emoticon perched atop a torso currently. I literally loved the villain? This never happens to me, because villains are always annoying. They usually lose, and I do not support the losing team. This goes contrary to my ambitions. But anyway. The Gray Man quickly became a real fave of mine. But as long as he continues his badassery and his new good-ness enables him to be in the next book, I will be just peachy, thanks.
There were a lot of things that felt worse in this book, but also a few that were better. Bottom line: If the next two are good. Please let them be good. Read a book with a person on the cover Honestly not sure how I felt about this one. Will gather my thoughts and get back to you. Review to come Oh, it's been so long since I've liked a villain. This bodes very, very well indeed.
The Dream Thieves in hand, I go into the paperback-sale section to avoid conflict and build up the courage required for the oncoming shaming-by-librarians.
To further set the scene: There are usually like 15 books, and 14 of them were published before in a thousand-book series about a boring girl who goes to high school, or whatever. What absolute miracle appears in front of me like a goddamn mirage? This book. I seriously held the library hardcover in one hand and the for-sale paperback in the other and just ogled. I even excitedly informed my traitorous sister the very same one who racked up an astronomically large fine.
All of this is to say that a miracle occurred, and it is clearly a sign that this book is going to be amazing and life-changing and wild and probably kill me. To which I say: View all 27 comments.
Sep 26, Natasha rated it it was amazing Shelves: You guys don't even KNOW, you guys. You guys! This book, guys.
This frickin' book! Spoilers below so avert your eyes you Dream Thief virgins. It's hard, but man. This book is everything YA should be. Everything YA Paranormal should be. It's everything that's good about my life, really. It's that good. The writing? Amazing, as well. The characters were all badass.
Like, so badass. Everyone was. I even ended up liking Mr. Grey and in the last book I thought he was a totally evil bastard. Where's Neeve? I don't know where to start with reviews like this because the book blew me away. I wish I could tell you what was good about it, but it was all amazing. The Raven Boys I'm so in love with him. My desires towards this book character are so real, they're tangible. It's pathetic and I don't care.
There were so many parts of this book that shocked me. Things that were hinted at in the first book but you never caught onto and then this book exposed them and left you all "wtffff?! I lost my shit! I actually said, "Awwwww shiiitttt!
Damn, is it ever funny. The wording is like, for smart teenagers, and kind of underhanded humor, which is perfect. One moment, she was wearing clothing, and the next moment, she was wearing a bikini. Fifty percent of the world was browned skin and fifty percent was orange nylon. You have been staring for too long. The larger part of his brain said: I love stories where things seem They don't live in an alternate universe where magic exists, they live in this one and happen to come across it.
Well, happen is a bad word. Search feverishly seems more like it. But you really have to be careful when you create that kinda plot.. Uh, duh. I loved Blue x Adam in the first book, but always loved Blue as one of the best YA characters ever, same with Gansey, and I still would've liked them to be together. And in this book? Oh, you get lots of hints and signs of their obvious affection.
I'm not even saying the best romance was Blue x Gansey, even though it maybe was for me. Can I just say I totally knew it about Ronan? They're my primary diet. I just know when shit is up, and I knew that boy liked boys. The way he noticed Gansey's smile, his laugh, and was always watching him.
Even if he seen him as a brother, he was still always noticing Gansey. And god, book 3 better have some serious Adam x Ronan going on in order for me to live the rest of my life happily. Under all this. I don't even KNOW! She scratched her calf with her bare foot. This book is so sweet and so cool and nothing boring is ever happening and I hung on every word like it was the edge of a cliff. If you like YA, especially YA Paranormal, read this series guys, but I just know there will be even greater parts of this series in the future.
Previous review I'm sorry, what? I have to wait A YEAR? September ??!! View all 24 comments. In all honesty, I'm already halfway through Blue Lily, Lily Blue and this series is kicking ass so far. There comes occasions where though it's not a 5 star book When the rating doesn't really matter at the end, because whether you give this series one star or all the stars in the damn universe.
It still is unforgettable. The trees speak Latin. I've seen myself fall in love with TV shows, movies and other series that follow the same pattern. I can really only describe it as being bittersweet. With such a dense plotline filled with so many story arcs and side character stories, we see this ragtag group intersect themselves into each other and start to stitch together themselves as people.
It's that simplicity and effortlessness that really shines out for me. There was a scene in the beginning with Gansey on the phone, and all you can develop from the background is that Ronan and Noah are messing around and being teenage boys. Till all of a sudden, you find out that Ronan pushed Noah off the window. It was a filler scene and it still is one of my favorites in the whole series so far. The sort of beauty that always hurt. I'm going to admit, The Raven Boys didn't open me to hardcore ships.
I had inklings of where certain pairings were heading but if anything, I fell in love with the platonic friendships in the first book.
The Dream Thieves was a slap to the face. Quite literally every pair in this book even the ones that were unconventional made my heart sing: They have taken my heart.
Yogurt is the mascot. He deserves the milkyway galaxy. A story about how a hard-ass stayed up all night nurturing an animal from his dreams, and secretly has a heart of gold.
For anyone who's watched Stranger Things, I see Gansey as a total Steve Harrington and the fact that he mothers and babysits the whole gang, but he needs them as much as they need him makes me grin like a psychopath So I have a lot of ideas and theories on where Ms.
Stiefvater is planning on taking this story, some of them are realistic. Most of them are so absurd, you would look at me like I was batshit crazy even more so than I usually am if I post them here.
I also am an avid Tumblr user especially when I search up art and book related stuffs , so going through some of the beautiful fanart really makes me want to consume this series for breakfast and just sit there looking at my self knowing that I have a problem, but being okay with it.
Re-Read, January Umm, is there a better way to start off the new year?? Though I really enjoyed the writing in the first book, it completely blew me away here.
The words were all perfectly chosen to craft simply beautiful and engrossing senten 5 Stars Overview: The words were all perfectly chosen to craft simply beautiful and engrossing sentences. These characters are fantastic, and the writing is smart. I often preach about showing vs telling, and this book nails it. To feel awake when my eyes are open. It becomes apparent how much of his steely personality is a front.
I still like her character and feel her behavior is part of her overall arc—but she was frustrating. All the characters are always talking about how charismatic and larger-than-life he is, but I still just want to grab a beer with him. Interested to see if this changes. Tragic backstory doesn't excuse sadistic behavior. Where is the logic in this?? He has some major consent issues.
But he's also incredibly captivating and really moved this story forward. View all 31 comments. The Dream Thieves, the second book in The Raven Cycle series, to say it in a few words is what I think how every book in the YA genre should strive to achieve in their characters development.
I have heard a lot of great things about Ronan Lynch and I finally understood why this character is really beloved by every reader I know. Turns out I was completely wrong. Every dream sequences give Ronan more necessary spotlight for his character and yes, this also means his development here is definitely the best one out of all the character in the series so far.
There is a glimpse of vivid emotions in every characters thoughts and actions, Gansey and Adam relationship here in particular took an intriguing and complex turn which imo is also one of the best part of the book other than Ronan. But that was the trick, wasn't it?
Everyone had their disappointment and their baggage; only, some people carried it in their inside pockets and not on their backs. Seriously, her love for cars can truly be seen from her writing and intricate description on every single race and cars description such as their brands, engines, wheels etc.
The only time where she made a notable appearance here is the one where she spent her time with Noah, which was really well written and amusing to read. Third, insta-love between two characters one being a completely new character in this installment that were completely pointless and I seriously have no idea why I have to read their relationship progression like that.
Finally, this is my adult fantasy attitude and longing being nitpicky here, the buildup to the climax were so well written but the conclusion of it was in my opinion very underwhelming. I gave this book the same rating with 'Six of Crows' and my overall experience of it is that I enjoyed it even more than the first book. I finished it in 2 days. It was magical, filled with great character development, magical and as usual, atmospheric. A good sequel I enjoyed and I hope the next book will be even better.

Excuse me for a moment while I go slap myself senseless for having resisted this long. It took months to get here but I finally made it. I read the raven boys last summer and though I enjoyed it and swore to finish the series by the end of the summer, other books ended up getting in the way while my attention kept going where the wind blew.
After the events of The Raven Boys , all the mysteries that were left unanswered and the consequences of the things that happened, my head Excuse me for a moment while I go slap myself senseless for having resisted this long. After the events of The Raven Boys , all the mysteries that were left unanswered and the consequences of the things that happened, my head was kind of spinning with theories as to how this book would address those questions or at the very least, some of them and give some clarification or explanation.
However, TDT took a completely different direction than I'd anticipated and I have to say, I might be one of the few ones who is actually pleased with that. Wait, not so fast because the slow pace really worked for me here and this is coming from the world's most impatient reader but I was genuinely glued to the pages from start to finish and loved it far more than I did the first one. There was something oddly luring and eerie about this book that I couldn't, for the life of me, pry myself away from.
And to be quite frank, as much as I was intrigued by the plot of the first book, I mainly enjoyed it for the characters and not exactly the mystery elements of the story which also turned out to be the same case with The Dream Thieves. So, where plots are concerned, it wasn't the most action-packed nor did it make any developments to the series, which almost felt like a side story with some links to the overall story arc of The Raven Cycle but the character developments and the beautiful writing more than made up for it.
What stood out for me above all else was the poetic yet potent writing style which instantly grabbed me and left me with a perpetual grin through the end. Moreover, the character interactions were fantastic.
The dialogue between the casts flowed so well all the way through displaying their distinct personalities and somewhat eerie humour ever so beautifully, which in my pinion, was one the high points of this book.
I love characters that make my head spin with intrigue and Ronan did that from start to finish. He is multi-layered, unpredictable and had such an incredible level of depth with so many different facets of his personality depending on who he was interacting with. And though a bit haphazard in its execution, his story was the one most thoroughly explored and consequently the best.
I loved the rest of the characters as much as I did in the first one, if not more. However, her very little presence in the book makes it hard to talk about her when in fact, I'm struggling to remember any memorable moments with her in it, aside from that one single, albeit endearing scene with Noah. Her actions are based almost solely on what the boys are doing as she spends much of her time tagging along on their quest and not much else.
The remainder of her appearances is spent on the continued formation of the love triangle and her confusing shifts in feeling towards Adam or Gansey or both which felt somewhat organic in the first book but a bit more contrived here. I totally and completely give in. About damn time anyway. View all 30 comments. When Taylor Swift?? I've been obsessed with him since he first showed up, and it's only gotten worse after that. I enjoy reading about Gansey, Adam, Blue, Noah, but when Ronan is on pages it's like they come to life.
I'm telling you, it's not normal the way i feel about him. When i read this book last year i When Taylor Swift?? When i read this book last year i was mad because i wanted it to be all about Ronan, i realize now that i was being unreasonable.
This time i will try my best to keep it together. Also, i kind of miss Kavinsky. Let's go! I was really mad because Adam was getting hurt because of Blue and Gansey! Now that we have Ronan, how can i stay mad at Blue.
This series is perfect! Their story was so intense and fascinating. I hope to see more of them in Blue Lilly rather than Gansey and Blue. Can i just say how much i don't like Blue at this point, and now she is making me not like Gansey. I couldn't care less who your true love is! Just pick someone and shut up! Stop jumping from one friend to another.
All i care about is how that person would die. I don't feel any chemistry between her and Gansey or maybe i just don't care. I found myself skipping pages while reading about these two. I love Gansey when he with his friends and family, this romance thing is just not working for me.
View all 87 comments. Apr 02, Kai rated it it was amazing Shelves: Beautiful things like this series. I was transfixed with The Dream Thieves. It's another fascinating novel made by a brilliant author. Some things still irritate me though. My best example: Ronan Lynch. Sometimes I just want to punch him in the face, especially when he behaves like the biggest dipshit earth has ever seen.
His actions and words make me furious. Maybe it's his recklessness or his attitude, but often he doesn't make sense to me at all. Other times I want to punch Adam in the face for being so stubborn. Him though, I do understand. I just wish he'd swallow his pride and accept his friend's aid. Anyway, what bothers me most is that sometimes I just didn't understand a single word. I totally missed the meaning of what Maggie wanted to tell me.
There was a whole chapter where I just sat still and thought "??? I guess that calls for a reread. I wish there was a little or a lot more clarity, it gets extremely confusing at some point. It's hard to explain why exactly I was confused. When their words get so cryptic and mysterious that I lose them. The only thing left to say is that Maggie created such raw and pure characters, that I don't want to let go of them.

Like I can't remember the exact context of this bizarre dream but I can recollect scattered images and emotions. For this series and its raw, complicated and real characters. At the same time, Adam struggles to come to terms with the sacrifice he made, Gansey continues his relentless search of the long dead Welsh king and Blue realizes that heart is a traitorous thing and you can't choose who you fall in love with. When a mysterious man appears and strange r paranormal activity strikes their little town, Blue and her raven boys must solve the riddles of their abilities and the ley lines and discover what they're looking for before it is too late.
Before someone else does. I was overwhelmed with a constant restlessness , I almost skipped sentences and pages because I wanted something more , something else to happen but I can't pinpoint what that was.
Perhaps I got tired from the frequent switch between dreams and reality, and I ended up a tad unsatisfied. This book's greatest asset was that it explored more thoroughly the relationships between the characters and their personalities , their inner battles and desires and needs.
It explained Ronan's hatred against the world, it uncovered the secrets he safeguarded for so long and I fell for his wounded, more vulnerable side. Adam on the contrary became more unpredictable.
I can't shake the notion that he is jealous of Gansey and that's the source of his bitterness. He is changing, I can see that he's changing and I hope that he'll understand how awful he has been to Gansey who only wanted to help him. My sweet, dear Gansey, whose wilder, boyish side is equally intriguing with his scholarly one.
But their connection, their stolen moments, the longing, they made my toes curl and my heart beat rapidly, sending warmth to every single cell of my body. I am scared and excited at the same time, but I hope, hope, hope.
Parate regis corvi. When I end this series, I'll probably need therapy. View all 23 comments. Aug 05, Ryan rated it it was amazing Shelves: Okay, there is no way I could possibly love Ronan Lynch anymore than I do now.
Post-Dream Thieves Me: Think again, bitch. I've written and re-written this review so many times now, that I've just accepted I'll never be able to put into words how much I love this series, and how much I loved this book. So I wrote a gif-review instead. This book: The Gray Man: Ronan and Kavinksy: Ronan and Adam: Blue and Gansey: Maura and The Gray Man: My reaction to Ronan's second secret: My reaction to the ending: Me after this book: My review of The Raven Boys View all 26 comments.
I paced myself and went through this book so slowly, because I couldn't stand not to savor it. It was easily one of the best books I've read all year, and has made this one of my favorite series of all time. Adam is so full of heartache and rage and hurt, and then poor little Noah is the epitome of a cinnamon roll and I just want to hug him and fix everything. This felt like Ronan's book, first and foremost, and I loved every single word on every single page that involved him.
He's such a brilliant, badass, lovable character and the development that he underwent in this installment was mind-blowing. I loved learning about his dreams, and his family, and the soft little heart tucked under all that anger and stubble and ink. On top of these lovable little delights of my heart, you've got more fun shenanigans with Maura and the psychics, breathtaking antics with a few morally gray characters heh, get it?
Through it all, Maggie's writing is so stunning and fun, and these characters made me want to live in Henrietta just to watch it all unfold. If you enjoyed The Raven Boys , you positively must continue the series.
If you haven't picked this series up at all yet, well You can find this review and more on my blog! View all 17 comments. Apr 01, Jenny rated it it was amazing.
It's one of those books that just keeps on giving.
The more you read, the more you discover. It has a really high reread factor as well because future actions shed light on past actions, turning each reread into small treasure hunts looking for those hints peppered into the story.
And the characters, don't get me started on the characters. Their character exploration is insane and subtle and beautiful. I know, normally I'm all about character development , but this wouldn't be the right word to use here. It's like Blue's tarot card, the Page of Cups.
She's an empty cup brimming with potential. They grow IN to their characters. Book by book they turn their potential into something real. Our characters aren't reluctant heroes who follow a certain path and are surprised to realize they've become "something more" by the end of their journey. They already know what their "something more" is, they know they'll reach it, they just don't know how. Ronan is a total bamf. Adam is finally getting his shit together.
I'm still waiting for my ship to sail. View all 5 comments. May 13, Hailey Hailey in Bookland rated it it was amazing Shelves: View all 3 comments.

I officially love Ronan and the Gray Man.
Ronan fucking Lynch: If this snake bit you, you had no one to blame but yourself. In a wounded tone, he said, "He threw me out the window! I love him so much. He's the best characters in this book. He deserves all the fucking love. He is hilarious as fuck and I can relate so much to him. This fucking kid, I swear. So like, since my brain is dysfunctional, I keep on saying Ronan Lynch out loud and this is an actual conversation I had with my sister. Who the fuck is this Ronan Lynch?
Get a life Sun. When I found out about Ronan's second secret view spoiler [ hide spoiler ] Just fuck me up please. Chainsaw is love. Yes, this bird is my fucking favorite, after Ronan of course. He's a mysterious hit man. He's a violent little piece of shit. He's a wonderful violent piece of shit. And I ship him so fucking hard with Maura. Maura deserves happiness. Please don't ask why. I hate him. I don't understand why everyone likes him???
Sorry, but I don't like this guy. Sure he's funny, but what he did at the end was not cool. I still don't understand shit about the ley lines and Glendower or whatever the plot is. View all 46 comments. Jan 21, Laura rated it really liked it Shelves: All of us have secrets in our lives.
If you could steal things from dreams, what would you take? Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself. One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams. And sometimes he's not the only one who wants those things.
Ronan is one of the raven boys - a group of friends, practically brothers, searching All of us have secrets in our lives. Ronan is one of the raven boys - a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy.
The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan's secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface - changing everything in its wake. Weird af brilliant book. I have such an odd relationship with this series. That by itself is a rarity but when you combine likeable characters with actually great characterization, good development and a compelling story, well, you have the keys to success.
So, this second book is mostly about Ronan and Adam. In my TRB review I said Ronan was one of my favorite characters and, after this book, he is probably one of my favorites ever.
There are so many layers and so many aspect of his persona but, somehow, he still manages to be quite simple.
I got really fucking frustrated with his relationship with Kavisnky but that could be because I absolutely hated Joseph Kavinsky. Boy, it was so obvious he was into Ronan. There were two particular scenes that made me think before shit went south that the only thing Kavinsky wanted was someone to be with. With a theatric twist of his hand, he presented his dream object. A pen cap. He twitched his fingers until Ronan handed over the dream-pen. The cap, of course, fit perfectly.
That was the first time I thought he wanted someone to complete him. As the story goes, well, everything falls into place. But there was also this one: After a moment, he heard the hood groan as Kavinsky leaned over him. I toyed with the idea of Kavinsky getting better but it was a no-go. He wanted to own and be owned by Ronan. Does he hate him enough to kill him one day if it comes to it? Does he hate him enough to stop caring if something happens to him?
He was clearly disturbed by Declan being all bruised and he also included him in the will. Everyone at St. Well, hate is such a strong word but maybe frustration? Gosh, I wanna love that guy, I do. I feel like loving Adam Parrish could be so good but he needs to stop directing his anger toward the wrong people.
He needs to level up, to own himself so he can take down the world or something. Even if they all part ways seriously, though, can you imagine them going on different ways?
Adam wants, needs, Glendower so badly he can blind himself in the process. But with that been said, I found myself liking this Adam a lot more. I also liked how he wanted answers from Blue, that was so not the way to get them, though , but I liked that. He did deserve more and he did deserve to know what was on the table. Or maybe not bother but rather confusing the heck outta me. Now, the Gray Man. What the actual fuck with the guy? At first I thought he was the villain but then he was like not really that but rather a neutral agent and then he was not so neutral after all and then what?
He was more complex than I thought he was going to be. He was afraid of his brother, yet he killed him like he was not the threat I thought he was going to be. Calla actually liked him, Calla fucking liked him. And his relationship with Maura was so cute, geez.
He wanted to stay. I absolutely adored that we saw more of the women who live in Fox Way. Maura, Calla, Persephone and Orla are just so unbelievable amazing. Was Persephone the previous Magician?
She was so cool and strong and she asked for more. Her relationship with her mother is so unique and so right. The more I read about them, the more I love them. Now, Gansey. Boy, there are a lot of things going one with him. Now, I missed Noah. A lot. I hope now Cabeswater is back and magic can be restored, he can also be back because damn, I miss him.
I was more frustrated in this book, that much I can say. I loved the new characters and how the old ones were explored and what about that ending? When did Maura go to Cabeswater? Is she in there? She could be in that cavern where the river was.

Would I know? No one is more flabbergasted than me to realize - to confirm - that Ronan Lynch is undoubtedly my favorite. Ronan, who's so keen on showing the kind of thrill-seeking, self-destructive behavior I would usually hate and manages to make me love him nonetheless. Tell me, is there something more powerful than the annihilation of a usual revulsion?
I don't think there "Suddenly, for the briefest moment, panic forced itself up. I don't think there is. He's so freaking stupid at times. Unable to fucking communicate. It would be so, so easy for me to despise him and hate him a little. Except I don't, I cannot. I'm way too busy caring for him. He was being made to understand that this, all of it, was a confession. A look into who Ronan really had been the entire time he had known him. What a world of wonders and horrors, and Glendower only one of them.
It has to be something , right? It has to be some quality I can quantify? Should I wait for some fucking epiphany about why I'm not growling and facepalming and rolling my eyes? You wish. There's only Chainsaw and a baby mouse and longing.
There's only brotherhood and family and hurt and hurt and hurt. Loneliness and anger and that dazzling smile that escapes, escapes, escapes. There's also "I'm being perfectly fucking civil" , because come on now. I know you smiled too. He always said Ronan differently from other words. As if he had meant to say another word entirely - something like knife or poison or revenge - and then swapped it out for Ronan's name at the last moment.
It can be seen as a flaw, or it can be your undoing.
Me, though? I love these Raven Boys to pieces - they're real to me. Yet it's funny how perception can change over the time, really. Indeed it seems that Adam and Blue switched roles during this second read: Now it's the opposite, but I don't care, it doesn't change anything because in the end, above the characters, what's important here are the dynamics and the relationships between them all.
Who cares about specifics? Strangely, I'm feeling more invested in that ship now. Go figure. Also - so much foreshadowing: There are so many tiny clues that I didn't catch the first time, SO.
