On the Third Day of Christmas…

12 Days of Christmas 2012 Banner

Escape Through the Pages gave to me…

…an ARC of The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater!

The Raven Boys

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.

  2. Today we indulged in one of my favorite holiday traditions. We drove from Halifax to a little diner in Shelburne called SOPHIE’S CAFE – HOME OF THE MILE HIGH PIE. Meanwhile my mother and stepdad drove up from Yarmouth to meet us there. I had fish cakes and turnips and carrots and green tomato chow-chow followed by a slice of mile-high date meringue pie consisting of a solid wedge of good date pie and a about six to eight inches of meringue. We had a great talk and on the way home Belinda and I sang Christmas carols in the car.

    And, I did Twitter this blog post.

  3. My favourite holiday tradition in Christmas Eve in general – my whole family gets together, we watch Christmas movies (it’s always either The Santa Clause or Home Alone), eat a huge dinner, open presents, and then watch the kids play. It’s one of my favourite days of the whole year. 🙂
