Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue
By Maggie Stiefvater
Genre YA Supernatural/Paranormal
Blue Sargent's life hasn't been the same since she got involved with the Raven Boys. Her mother is missing and to find her Blue and her friends are going to have to start digging deeper. But who knows what they'll awake.
"Do you think this is actually real?" Blue asked.
I have such mixed feelings about this series! I love it at some points and am yawning and trying to keep my eyes open at others.
This book, at least, was shorter. Still, I had a hard time making myself get truly invested. There's something about Stiefvater's writing style that is meandering; almost lackadaisical and while that fits quite lovely with the magical side of things, it loses the urgency one would think should be apparent with Blue's mother missing.
Still, Stiefvater usually draws me back into the story near the end, leaving me ready for the next book. Which is good since I'm still determined to read them all together so as not to forget everything. Sigh! On to the final book!
Should you read it?
Obviously if you've gotten to the third book in the cycle just go ahead and read it.
