Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue

Blue Lily, Lily Blue Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A solid 3/5 stars.


I don't know if it was because I was more in the mood for Queen of Shadows, but I didn't LOVE this book. Which is a massive bummer. I really enjoyed the first two books! I don't know how this one didn't grab me?

I loved small details, but for the most part I didn't understand what was going on. I found it hard to follow.


This could just be me going through a depressive episodes: so if I reread it and love it, I wouldn't be surprised. But right now: I felt no appreciation for this book (aside for the teeniest moments Gansey and Blue shared-- the whole drama with psycho Greenmantle and his wife ?????????????????? NEVER, EVER WANT TO READ THAT AGAIN. I WAS BORED.)

I wish I enjoyed this book. I'm onto The Raven King, but only because it's due ASAP to my library and I don't want to drag this on.
