Waiting on Wednesday (39)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine! It spotlights soon to be released books that can't come quick enough!

I can't wait to read...

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater!

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. (summary from Goodreads)

I have been looking forward to finding out what Maggie's MagicalNovel is all about ever since she first started to mention it months ago...and I'm not disappointed! Oh, that cover! The first of four books, I don't doubt that this series will be another Maggie Masterpiece that I absolutely adore!!

Maggie Stiefvater's The Raven Boys is set to be released 18 September 2012!

Are you looking forward to this one? What other book are you waiting on?
