spoiler discussion (coming soon)
Blue Lily, Lily Blue was amazing from the start to the end. It’s full of emotional rollercoasters, and doubts and potential romances and friendships blossoming. It’s everything. Combined with the whimsical writing style, Maggie Stiefvater have once again produced a magical book.
There were so many instances where things seems so near yet so far. Things we yearn for but couldn’t get it due to unforeseen circumstances. Throughout the book, shocking revelations were appearing here and there. I missed Noah in the second book of the series, but in this, we managed to see glimpses of him once again. His character always have a place in my heart due to the nature of his alive-ness and I just find myself wanting to protect him from potential (even though he’s dead) harm.
I have a new found adoration for Ronan. He has been carrying the load of secrets for his family ever since he was young, and now he has to protect the secrets from people who wants the Greywaren. He’s snarky, yes, but caring and thoughtful. A true cinnamon roll. Adam became more accepting, and I loved it so much. I think the past situations made him more accepting of not only other people’s help but more accepting of himself.
Gansey and Blue, are wonderful for each other, but they can’t be together. It PAINS me to watch them have these back and forth yet they cannot do anything. *cries*
The friendship between The Raven Boys and Blue seemed to never fail to make my heart warm and fuzzy with how they helped each other through their toughest times.
