WHEEE!! IT’S TAROT TOUR DAY! If you follow me on twitter chances are you’ve seen me freaking out over The Raven Cycle or retweeting Maggie Stiefvater like it’s my job. This is one of my favorite set of books ever. It is some of the most magically beautiful, flawlessly poetic storytelling I’ve ever come across and I cannot stress enough how much you are missing out if you haven’t checked out this series yet. So, naturally, when Cuddlebuggery was asked to promote The Raven Cycle Tarot Tour once I was done squeaking and vibrating, I responded yes with the level of enthusiasm normally only found in small, wiry terriers about to be walked for the first time that day.
Speaking of things I really like, have I mentioned that I really like playlists? Well I do. Since I don’t have a tarot card to share with you, I thought I’d celebrate the tour/book/series by sharing my playlists for The Dream Thieves and Blue Lily, Lily Blue (list for The Raven Boys TBD, I spend an entirely unreasonable amount of time on these, okay?).
The Tarot Tour
To celebrate the release of Blue Lily, Lily Blue, Maggie Stiefvater designed The Raven Cycle Tarot, a Major Arcana 22-card deck inspired by The Raven Cycle series. Make sure you check out the other stops on the tour for a peak at the (GORGEOUS) cards and rundown of their meanings. You can also follow The Raven Cycle Tarot Tour on the This is Teen Pinterest page.
About The Series
Mystery, Romance and the supernatural combine in this series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater.
Book 1: The Raven Boys
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them–until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her. His name is Gansey, a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.
But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can’t entirely explain. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher who notices many things but says very little.
For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She doesn’t believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.
Book 2: The Dream Thieves
Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after….
Book 3: Blue Lily, Lily Blue
There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.
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.
