“Do you know how much Gansey senior is worth? I wonder if he knows what his kid spends all his time on. Man, sometimes these entitles little bastards make me want to slit my wrists.”

Maggie Stiefvater’s The Raven Cycle series is one of my favorite series in the whole world. I cannot get enough of these characters and was so sad that the final book was released only a couple of weeks ago. I devoured it, by the way. This week I’m spotlighting the first book in the series, The Raven Boys. I’ll finally be posting a proper review in the coming days. This excerpt is a conversation that takes place between a couple of teachers and a secretary at a very rich private school and they are beside themselves because one of the students is obsessed with locating the Welsh King Glendower who disappeared hundreds of years ago. I tell ya, rich kids and their hobbies. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

  1. I have yet to read this series, but I’ve seen so much of it everywhere. And how did you get add the Goodreads reading challenge widget? I can’t seem to figure out how to add it.

    1. WordPress is awful when it comes to Javascript widgets, so for the Goodreads widget, you have to update it yourself. So every once in a while I replace the code with the new one on Goodreads. Let me know if you need any assistance and I’ll walk you through it.


        1. If you go into your Acoount Settings on Goodreads, there is an option for widgets and at the very bottom is the code for your reading challenge progress. You’ve just got to copy and paste that for the sidebar, the only caveat is you have to update it because it won’t do it by itself because of WordPress’ restrictions on javascript.


  2. I read this one and was like meh…. I am gonna read this other book I have here, Dream Thieves, I think, but am not sure if I will love it. Glad you did though, you are definitely with the majority on this one. 🙂 Happy weekend!

  3. Oh man I feel the same way! What would we be without those rich kids?
    Anyways, I reread the first book and made notes while reading and I’ve put them in a post, maybe you’ll be interested in checking them out…
