Blue Lily, Lily Blue

The Raven Cycle # 3

There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.

Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.

The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.

Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.

Before I get into the review, I just need to say that there is no way I can accept that that is Blue on the cover.  That is Johnny Depp as Edward Scissorhands and no one can tell me otherwise.

Again, another fabulous addition to this wonderful series.

As soon as I finished The Dream Thieves I jumped right into Blue Lily, Lily Blue and I finished the next day. I went so long without being able to read a single book and now I’ve read 3 in 3 days.

This one was a bit different than the other two. The pacing wasn’t as quick and there wasn’t as much action, but I loved it all the same. That is, for sure, a sign of a very talented author. Also, I am super confused about 75% of the events that occurred and the plot arc in general, but I think that’s intentional. I don’t think it’s a sign of weak writing or my inability to comprehend. I think we are purposefully being left in the dark in certain situations, and while usually I hate that, I am totally fine with it in regards to this series.

Now I just have to wait a month for the final book to come out. Is it too soon to reread? I just don’t know what else I could possibly read that would even come close to the magic I felt while reading the first 3 books. I’ve been considering giving her Wolves of Mercy Falls series another try to bide the time. I got pretty far into Shiver and was a bit bored so I put it down for a bit, and now 3 years later I still haven’t finished.

  1. Yes, that is Edward!! I have not tried this series as I just could not get into Wolves of Mercy Falls. I read the first two and never read the third as I was just meh about them. I have heard that this series if really good, so I may have to see if the library has them.

  2. Omg hahaha I never realized how similar the cover looked to Edward Scissorhands!!! I absolutely can’t wait for The Raven King, and I sort of wanna reread the whole series first but I’ve reread the first and second before reading BLLB last year so I don’t think I will 😁
