On Re-Reading: The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

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.

    I’m glad to see that your love for the series didn’t diminish the second time around. Not that I expected that it would or anything, because it’s THE RAVEN BOYS ♥ I’m actually waiting for book 4 to come out so I can read the entire series back to back and bask in the feels and awesomeness XD

    This is a good idea! I feel like sometimes I’ll rate a book, and then look back on it and realize I may have liked it more/less than I thought. I’m actually planning to re-read The Scorpio Races by the same author soon! I just read The Raven Boys for the first time and loved it! But I have looked back at an old childhood favorite before and not liked it as much as I thought I did.
