Hello friends, welcome to Blue Lily, Lily Blue reread post and this one contains spoilers FOR THE ENTIRE SERIES!! If you haven’t read the book yet, please exit this blog post unless you want to be massively spoiled. My spoiler free review is here!
"Greywaren semper est incorruptus."
His heart hummed.
Blue touched his fingertips.
Just this —
He pinched her fingers lightly, just for a moment, and then he withdrew his hand and put it back on the wheel. His chest felt warm.
This was not allowed.
YES, IT IS ALLOWED. YOU TWO BELONG TOGETHER. want them to kiss, don’t want them to kiss. don’t kiss, kiss, kiss, don’t kiss. ughhhhhhh, the struggle.
Then she called Gansey.
It rang twice, three times, and then: “Hello?”
He sounded boyish and ordinary. Blue asked, “Did I wake you up?”
She heard Gansey fumble for and scrape up his wireframes.
“No,” he lied, “I was awake.”
MY HEART. THEY ARE SO PRECIOUS.
I actually liked that Blue still had mundane things, like her future and education, to ponder and worry about while she was caught up in all these magic and whimsical adventures.
Blue looked up (and up, and up) at her tall cousin. “At lunch, T.J. came over to my table and drew a penis on the unicorn on my binder. Is that the incident Charity is referring to?”
“Dont Richard Gansey the Third at me,” Orla replied.
can i just say, i love this moment.
so, ronan came to adam’s work place and left behind a moisturiser for adam’s hands because they were cracking. HOW PRECIOUS IS THIS?!
Because it was Noah and no one else, Gansey could admit, “I don’t know what I’ll do if I find him, Noah. I don’t know what I’ll be if I’m not looking for him. I don’t know if the first thing about how to be that person again.”
Noah put the clay in Gansey’s hands. “That’s exactly how I feel about the idea of being alive again.”
MY PRECIOUS CINNAMON ROLLS
Part go him wished they did and immediately felt bad, because it was vanity, really: See, Adam Parrish is wantable, worthy of a crush, not just by anyone, someone like Ronan, who could want Gansey or anyone else and chose Adam for his hungry eyes.
EXCUSE ME, ADAM. why is your self-esteem so low?! BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE WORTHY, THAT SOMEONE WOULD WANT YOU. //ronannnn//
OH DANG, Matthew was dreamt by Ronan!!!
“Don’t tell the others,” Gansey said.
“I’m dead,” Noah replied. “Not stupid.”
blue and gansey going on midnight rides are some of my favourite scenes.
“Maybe it wouldn’t hurt if I kiss you,” he whispered. “Maybe it’s only if you kiss me.”
THIS IS PAINING ME.
Gwenllian is a little psycho. but love her.
Jesse scratched his chest. “YOU REALLY ARE A VERY GOOD KIND OF ANT.”
sobs i feel so upset that jesse only got such little book time. he’s such a gentle giant.
holy crap, didn’t know that persephone was knitting that sweater for gwenllian. CAN I HAVE MORE STORIES ABOUT PERSEPHONE?! ESPECIALLY YOU KNOW… THE ENDING KILLED ME.
witnessing ronan “dying” was horrible as fuck. i never want that to happen, ever.
cabeswater protecting adam from the falling slate tiles even though they weren’t in cabeswater. COOL
gansey and ronan coming to help adam in the court room was AMAZING. and adam accepting that help was even more WONDERFUL
And something else: friendship of the unshakeable kind. Friendship you can swear on. That could be busted nearly to breaking and come back stronger than before.
fuck. persephone is dead. fuck fuck fuck
piper got to go. she killed jesse.
how amazing is it that gansey just have to say “wake up” and all the skeleton creatures woke up?!!??!?!? k i n g
i don’t like neeve at all, and hate that she’s back into the storyline so serves her right that piper woke up the sleepers by herself instead of doing it with neeve so that piper can get the favour to herself. 🙄
