Review: Blue Lily, Lily Blue

Blue Lily, Lily Blue Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A solid 3/5 stars.


I don’t know if it was because I was more in the mood for Queen of Shadows, but I didn’t LOVE this book. Which is a massive bummer. I really enjoyed the first two books! I don’t know how this one didn’t grab me?

I loved small details, but for the most part I didn’t understand what was going on. I found it hard to follow.


This could just be me going through a depressive episodes: so if I reread it and love it, I wouldn’t be surprised. But right now: I felt no appreciation for this book (aside for the teeniest moments Gansey and Blue shared– the whole drama with psycho Greenmantle and his wife ?????????????????? NEVER, EVER WANT TO READ THAT AGAIN. I WAS BORED.)

I wish I enjoyed this book. I’m onto The Raven King, but only because it’s due ASAP to my library and I don’t want to drag this on.
