It seemed almost a crime that I was heading towards YALC and I still hadn’t read a Maggie Stiefvater book. I know. It’s disgusting, isn’t it?
But it’s ok! I sorted my life out and made a start on The Raven Cycle to see what all the fuss was about. Continue reading “In which I FINALLY started reading ‘The Raven Cycle’ by Maggie Stiefvater”
Well hot damn, I got myself tagged (“nominated” always feels too weird for me to say… look, I have my ticks, so do you. Let’s just leave it at that) by Grace @ quirkyandperculiar and I am SO BEHIND on these things that I thought I’d better start doing them.
