Well, I'm really glad I gave The Raven Boys a second chance. After putting it on hold for a few (er, five) months, I figured it was now or never if I ever wanted to finish it. DNFs don't really sit well with me, especially when I don't have a very good reason for giving up.
I found the print form difficult to get though. I don't know if it was the writing style or what, but it was taking me forrreverrr. So I snagged the audiobook from the library and ended up breezing though the second half. I never thought I'd be an advocate for audiobooks, but there you are. So now I can officially say that I get the hype. I get why people love this series. And I can't wait to get my hands on (audio)book two.
