#WednesdayYA April Selection

I'm a little late in posting this, but what else is new!  We had a great discussion about The Wee Free Men on my channel at the end of March.  If you missed it, fear not, you can watch it right here.

At the end of the liveshow, we announced our selection for April, which I got to choose because my birthday is April 1st.  I picked something I've been wanting to read forever, and I actually wanted us to read it so badly that I bought Misty a copy. Whatever, she already owned the second book in the series. Without further ado, here is our April read.

“There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark’s Eve,” Neeve said. “Either you’re his true love . . . or you killed him.”

It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

From Maggie Stiefvater, the bestselling and acclaimed author of the Shiver trilogy and The Scorpio Races, comes a spellbinding new series where the inevitability of death and the nature of love lead us to a place we’ve never been before.

(Summary from GoodReads) 

Be sure to join us if you want to read along, or if you just want to chat with us. The liveshow will be on April 29th at 8:30 p.m. EST and this time, we'll be on Misty's channel. We can't wait to see you there!
