The Raven Boys is one of the books I'm most excited to read this year, and I'm seriously hoping the same is true for you too! I'm looking forward to learning more about this new world Maggie Stiefvater has created for readers to lose themselves in.

Summary (from Chapters/Indigo):
An all-new series from the masterful #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!
Legend holds that Glendower, a vanished Welsh king, sleeps beneath the hills until he’s needed. The first person to find him will be granted a wish—either by seeing him open his eyes, or by cutting out his heart.
Gansey has it all—family money, a car, time for extracurriculars and friends—but he’s always loved the tales of sleeping kings. He thinks he’s found one, too, or at least the area where one might be: in the town of Henrietta, Virginia. And the best way to be there is to attend the prestigious Aglionby Academy for Boys.
Blue is the daughter of the town psychic in Henrietta, Virginia, but is too practical to believe in things like spirits or true love. Her policy is to stay away from Aglionby boys...but it may be that one in particular can change her mind about magic, and maybe even love.
