The Raven Boys (Raven Cycle, #1) - Maggie Stiefvater,Will Patton

It's not that the narrator is bad, per se, his voice just doesn't fit the story or characters very well. He sounds 60-something, and this is a book about teenagers, and he has that kind of smoky, gravely voice that I suppose would work good with, IDK, campfire stories but isn't quite up to snuff for this book.

 

Also, I'm kind of annoyed that Blue, the only prominent female protag, is limited to a plotline surrounding her relationship status, or lack thereof, while Gansey gets a whole quest story. And Blue's power is to enhance other people's powers so isn't even useful to herself, which means she's going to end up helping Gansey on his quest to find the ley lines and yadda yadda yadda.

 

Maybe I'll come back and try this later in ebook format, but it's not something I'm feeling compelled to finish now.

Honestly I think my favorite book cover that I've ever seen. It's absolutely beautiful. I love it so much.

This is turning out to be a lot more intriguing than I first anticipated.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled Nonfiction November to bring you a young adult fantasy novel because my library finally found my 3-month-old book request. Hopefully this will be worth the wait and the trouble.
