    1. Aw, bummer! I think the 2 books from The Raven Boys series that I’ve read so far are my favorites from Stiefvater. I get so emotionally invested in the characters! Starfish was so nice, I didn’t know what to expect when I picked it up, but it definitely blew me away.

      1. Aww, yeah, I’ve definitely had that happen to me with other books. It’s a bummer that you committed to the whole series and didn’t really like it, though!
