“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 theShiver 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.
Maggie Stiefvater is such a huge name in YA lit. You can’t go to a bookstore without seeing her name pop out at you. Fans everywhere are in love with Stiefvater, and I have heard great things about The Raven Boys. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the Shiver series, so I’m a little nervous to read this one even though I have a copy sitting around. Find the article here.

Fans of Tris and Four will be excited to learn that Summit has announced a release date for the movie adaptation of Divergent. The movie will hit big screens on March 21, 2014. A synopsis of the book can be found below for those who have not read the book.
In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue–Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is–she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are–and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she’s chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series–dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.
Are you guys as excited as I am to see Divergent as a movie? I recently read both of the books, and I LOVED them! I cannot wait till 2014. You can find the article here.

The Vampire Diaries is a popular book series (one I don’t happen to like) by L.J. Smith. I’ve tried to read the books, but I ended up giving up on them because they were so horrible. The television show, though? Best. Thing. Ever. Made. I’m glad to present all of you with the trailer for the upcoming season of The Vampire Diaries.
The preview for this season is not the best preview VD has ever made, but I know how brilliant this season is going to be. Will Klaus get his real body back? Will he get Caroline? Will Elena transition into a vampire or will Bonnie be able to save her? I cannot WAIT until October when I will finally get all of those questions answered!
