Waiting on Wednesday (51): The Raven Boys

Time for the"Waiting On Wednesday" weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Waiting on Wednesday spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
To Be Published: September 18th 2012 by Scholastic Press
 Filled with mystery, romance, and the supernatural, The Raven Boys introduces readers to Richard “Dick” Campbell Gansey, III and Blue Sargent. Gansey has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on the hunt to find Glendower, a vanished Welsh king. Legend has it that the first person to find him will be granted a wish—either by seeing him open his eyes, or by cutting out his heart.

Blue Sargent, the daughter of the town psychic in Henrietta, Virginia, has been told for as long as she can remember that if she ever kisses her true love, he will die. But she is too practical to believe in things like true love. Her policy is to stay away from the rich boys at the prestigious Aglionby Academy. The boys there—known as Raven Boys—can only mean trouble. When Gansey and his Raven Boy friends come into her life, Blue realizes how true this is. She never thought her fortune would be a problem. But she was wrong.
Two words:  Maggie Stiefvater. DONE.  If she writes it, I read it! Maggie has said this has been one of her most challenging writing projects, and it is a cycle of four books. Yay! What can I say, vanished Welsh kings and kisses that kill their true love - what's not to like? Can't wait!

I definitely want to read this one. I haven't read The Scorpio Races yet - but I want to.

Can you believe that I've never read one of her books before? But I have a feeling that I would really love them - especially the writing!

Wow this sounds like a great read. I haven't read a book of hers either!
