Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
The Raven Boys draw ever closer in their search for Glendower, but not everything is what it seems.
Publisher’s Description: The third installment in the all-new series from the #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!
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.

Luna Lovebooks says…
Likes: I still like the characters. I was a little sad that Noah, for the most part, is absent from this novel. But the steamy scene between Gansey and Blue more than made up for that! Can you say sexual tension? I like that we learn more about Glendower and that the boys and Blue are so close to waking him up.
Dislikes: The pacing is still slow. Part of the reason I took so long to read this book is because I would lose interest and be on to other things. I think maybe this series could have been a trilogy or a duology instead of four books. The “bad guys” are more comical than villain-y. They just don’t make me fear for the main characters the way a villain should.
I have to give this book three ghosts. While I love the characters, the pacing is often slow and befuddling and there are still way too many unanswered questions.
