The Raven Boys

The Raven Boys - The premise of this book really intrigued me. A girl who comes from a clairvoyant family…a group of four privileged "Aglionby Academy" boys as close as brothers…an old legend…and plenty of magic and mystery! I think this series has great potential, and to be honest this book has caught my eye for awhile, but I only picked it up only because the 2nd book is about to come out and has been getting great reviews. I also thought this series would be geared toward the romantic side but I was pleasantly surprised that there was a lot more going on, and that romance was not the main focus.All in all, this introduction to the series pulled me in enough, and really the biggest problem with it is the slow pacing. I get that the author is trying to set up the atmosphere, the characters, and the legend, but I think the lack of action could potentially lose readers half-way through. I'm still in for the 2nd!
