Halloween Bingo - 1st Square Filled
The Raven Boys - Maggie Stiefvater

I finally finished my first book for Halloween Bingo by re-reading The Raven Boys. While it can go many places I am counting it for the Raven Square.

 

The first time I read The Raven Boys, I listened to the audiobook, and was enchanted.  This time, while my delight  was somewhat lessened by already knowing the major reveals, Maggie Stiefvater's language was almost as magical in print as it was as an audiobook.

 

Reducing my rating from 5 stars to 4.5 because you can't be delighted by a book for the first time twice.

Blue, largely against her will, glanced to the booth he pointed to.  Three boys sat at it: one was smudgy, just as he said, with a rumpled, faded look about his person, like his body had been laundered too many times.  The one who'd hit the light was handsome and his head was shaved; a soldier in world where where the enemy was everyone else.  And the third was -- elegant. It was not the right word for him, but it was close.  He was fine boned and a little fragile looking, with blue eyes pretty enough for a girl.

 

I'm very much enjoying this re-read of The Raven Boys.  My first time through was the audiobook read by Will Patton, which forced me to take the time to savor the language.  I'm finding this time through different, with the major reveals no longer a surprise, but  still loving how Maggie Stiefvater crafts language.

 

While The Raven Boys could fit many squares, I'm intending to use it for

Third read of this wonderful book. This time I'm listening to it in audio then marking the pages in my paperback. (Reading and listening) and it may be one I've the best audio books I've ever heard. It's really atmospheric and the narration is amazing. The Southern accents are awesome.

The Raven Boys & Blue Sargent
The Raven Boys - Maggie Stiefvater

Once again, I don't talk about what the book is about, that's why there is a back cover and sellers give you their pitch. 
What I liked about this book was several of the main characters and the author's exploration of Ley Lines. I'll probably go for a another book about Blue Sargent, Gansey and Ley Lines in the future when my pile goes down some.
