Blue Lily, Lily Blue

I received Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater in the mail yesterday! I have been looking forward to this book since I found out it was being published. The Raven Cycle has been great so far, and I can’t wait to finish it.

Chad bought it for our anniversary, and I was so excited when I opened the mail and found it. The cover is beautiful. I mean look at it. The picture from Goodreads doesn’t do it enough justice.

Another great thing about pre-ordering this book is that Maggie signed a bookplate and drew a picture in it. You can click the picture on the right to get a better view. I actually wasn’t expecting the little doodle in there, but I think it’s really cool. She is an amazing artist.

I haven’t finished The Dream Thieves yet. I took a small break from it so I could work on my October reads, but I’m going to start reading it again in November. I’m about 140 pages in, and I’m loving it so far. It’s so creative and the writing is amazing. Everything just flows so nicely. I would highly recommend  this series.



I found out about this amazing readathon from She Reads She Blogs. It’s being hosted by Books of Amber and Readers in Wonderland. The goal is to read or reread The Raven Boys and The Dream Thieves in preparation for the October 21st release of Blue Lily, Lily Blue.

So far, I’ve only read The Raven Boys, but I really liked it. I’ve been putting off reading The Dream Thieves because I wanted to wait for Blue Lily, Lily Blue to be released so I could just marathon the books. This readathon is perfect for that. Since I’ve already read The Raven Boys, I’m going to start on Sept. 28th with The Dream Thieves. I’ll most likely still participate in the discussions, and if I see that I can’t remember anything from the first book, then I will definitely reread it before continuing on with the series.

There’s still time to join in on this readathon if you are interested in participating. To sign up and for more information about the schedule, giveaway, and events, click here.

If you decide to participate make sure to let me know. I’m so excited to start reading!

Don’t worry if you didn’t win this one. I’m planning on doing two more giveaways in November, and one of them will be international.

On another happy note, this is actually my 100th post. 🙂  Thanks again to everyone for making this giveaway successful, and I’m looking forward to hosting another one.


At the beginning of July, Chad and I went to one of Maggie Stiefvater’s book signings. We went to the first signing on her tour where she was giving away one of the three guitars that she custom painted for Sinner. Of course, we didn’t win the guitar, but we received other goodies. We decided that it would be cool to give away a signed copy of her new book, so we bought an extra copy. Each book came with some additional swag, a signed book cover!

Sinner – Maggie Stiefvater
Genre – Young Adult/Fantasy

A standalone companion book to the internationally bestselling Shiver Trilogy.

Sinner follows Cole St. Clair, a pivotal character from the #1 New York Times bestselling Shiver Trilogy. Everybody thinks they know Cole’s story. Stardom. Addiction. Downfall. Disappearance. But only a few people know Cole’s darkest secret — his ability to shift into a wolf. One of these people is Isabel. At one point, they may have even loved each other. But that feels like a lifetime ago. Now Cole is back. Back in the spotlight. Back in the danger zone. Back in Isabel’s life. Can this sinner be saved?
