*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)

*It’s that simple.
I’ve chosen the book I’m currently reading, Blue Lily, Lily Blue.
“People are going to see you talking to nobody and think you’re weird.” This amused him.
It niether amused nor worried Blue. She’d gone through eighteen years as the town psychic’s daughter, and now, in her senior year, she had already held every single possible conversation about that fact. She had been shunned and embraced and bullied and cajoled. She was going to hell, she had the straight line to spirtual nirvana.
So far, I’m really enjoying this book. Blue is really settling into her friendship with the other Raven Boys and Maggie Stiefvater continues to succeed at dedicating one book to each person but still dedicating a good portion of the book to how everyone else is doing as well. She doesn’t neglect any of their plots, despite having the plot focus around one character at a time. I loved Dream Thieves, so I’m hoping I love this one just as much, although the summary makes me apprehensive. Normally I do these Friday 56 posts about books I’ve already read but I had to give Dream Thieves back to the library, otherwise I would have done that one.
The quote above really sums up Blue as a sensible, down-to-earth girl who knows her life is weird but doesn’t particularly care. Since this book is supposed to be about her, I can’t wait to see where it goes.
Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.
The trick with found things, though, is how easily they can be lost.
Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.Summary from Goodreads
