Waiting on Wednesday: The Raven Boys

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

Publisher: Scholastic Press
Publish Date: Sept. 18, 2012
Genre: Paranormal
Goodreads Summary: 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.

Why am I waiting on The Raven Boys? Tons of reasons! It has mystery, romance and supernatural elements, a bit of history and it’s by Maggie Stiefvater (love her writing!). I also love that the girl's name is Blue, which in addition to being very popular right now, is a cool name for a fictional character. This book sounds awesome and has me looking forward to the fall.

What books are you waiting on?
