~Waiting on Wednesday~ The Raven King

                “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.  Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on.  This week’s pick is:

The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
Out:  4/26
Book 4 (final)

From Goodreads:
                The fourth and final installment in the spellbinding series from the irrepressible, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater.

All her life, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love’s death.  She doesn’t believe in true love and never thought this would be a problem, but as her life becomes caught up in a strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

In a starred review for Blue Lily, Lily Blue, Kirkus Reviews declared:  “Expect this truly one-of-a-kind series to come to a thundering close.”

Why I’m Waiting:
                 Okay so I’m behind on this series.  I LOVE her writing style and the beauty of it all and the story of the first book was intriguing for sure.  When book two came out I was in between jobs and didn’t have the money to spend on it right away.  Once I got settled again and I was able to purchase it I decided to wait until closer to book threes release so I could read them together.  Then I found it was a four book series not a trilogy and given I had other books to read and really wanted to re-read the first book as well I decided to wait and read them with a friend of mine and with our Goodreads group, Perpetual YA Bookworms, the month of the release and read all four books back to back!  It seems like the best idea then there is no waiting and everything will be super fresh between books!  Plus come on these covers are awesome!  I’m also still waiting to get the tarot cards Maggie made with the series, so beautiful!

                What are you waiting on?  Tell me below what you think of this title and leave a link to your WoW as well so I can check it out!


  1. I haven't read this series! I've always said, I'll binge-read the books once the last one publishes. I hope you enjoy this one when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a wonderful week. :)
