Before you go any further, it might be worth you checking out my original review of The Raven Boys so you can gather more of my feelings for this book. (Just a heads-up: there’s a lot of feelings in that review.)
Do I Still Feel the Same? In a word – yes! Re-reading The Raven Boys was really interesting for me as I picked up on so much more than when I first read the book. There’s a few clues dotted about this book that I only picked up on during this re-read.
I still loved the plot, the characters and the writing just as much as I did the first time. In fact, I felt so much more connected to the characters this time round as I knew them all already. My heart ached for Adam so much more this time, despite knowing what would happen to him and that things would all work out in the end. I was pretty surprised over how much I had forgotten about the story too, so the re-read was really necessary before I dived into The Dream Thieves.
Does my rating still stand? Absolutely! The Raven Boys will always be a 5 Star read for me, because it’s such a unique book, and Maggie Stiefvater’s writing is absolutely exquisite.
