    It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive. Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them - not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her. His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is 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.

    Story

    WOW. Talk about information overload!! My head is still reeling and trying to capture everything that happened! I will be listening to this book again, and soon.

    I was drawn into this immediately and I couldn't let go. Everything, every detail just kept coming and coming. A few times I went back and listened to a few parts when I had to quit listening, just to get my brain caught up again. Blue is such a weird name, I actually wrinkled my nose at it until I got to know her. That is when I felt it fit her. Most of the names of the Characters were so different and unique, which added so much more to their personalities. Of course we can't forget that Blue has "her Raven boys" whose personalities differ from night to day, but are all handsome and attractive in their own ways.

    Maggie's writing is amazing. She is a genius when it comes to putting a story together, especially how she plots out each character and makes them so unique and part of the whole picture. She takes the supernatural world and makes it seem so normal, such an every day occurrence that I didn't even seem to notice it really couldn't happen. There are so many twists and turns, mysteries, lies, and shocking truths that unfold. I really enjoyed it. I am excited for the next installment.

    Will Patton did a great job with the narration! I love it when famous actors take time to narrate books and Will did an excellent job, especially with the southern accents. I hope he narrates the next book as well!!

    What if there were teens whose lives literally depended on being bad influences? This is the reality for sons and daughters of fallen angels. Tenderhearted Southern girl Anna Whitt was born with the sixth sense to see and feel emotions of other people. She's aware of a struggle within herself, an inexplicable pull toward danger, but Anna, the ultimate good girl, has always had the advantage of her angel side to balance the darkness within. It isn't until she turns 16 and meets the alluring Kaidan Rowe that she discovers her terrifying heritage and her willpower is put to the test.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book including the narrator! As I said, I am all over bad boy books and this one... Kaiden, just couldn't get any badder! The son of a fallen angel, drummer of a band on top of speaking with an English Accent? I was done for!
    Also, Anna's sweet girl personality didn't come off as self-righteous or snobby, but there were a few times where I felt she did get a little "preachy". Other than that I thought the characters, 1st and 2nd drew me in quick. I would have loved to see more Kopano.. maybe the sequel will have him? I hope so!

    I don't think I would classify this as a teen book. With all the sex, drugs and some language, I wouldn't want my teens reading it until they were at least 17.

    Everything about Anna's life is a secret. Her father works for the Branch at the helm of its latest project: monitoring and administering treatments to the four genetically altered boys in the lab below their farmhouse. There's Nick, solemn and brooding; Cas, lighthearted and playful; Trev, smart and caring; and Sam...who's stolen Anna's heart. Reserved and always controlled, Sam does everything with purpose. When the Branch decides it's time to take the boys, Sam stages an escape, killing the agents sent to retrieve them.

    I really enjoyed the storyline to this book. I was on edge the whole time waiting for what came next. The character building was excellent, giving me great personality traits of each one.

    BUT..... I couldn't deal with the Narrator! I'm sorry, I usually am pretty good at ignoring bad narrations, but there were several things that got to me. First, Casey's voice seemed way too young for the main character. I kept imagining a 12-year-old, not 17. Second, she was way. too. Choppy. and. Monotone. I read to my kids more smoothly than that. I hate giving negative reviews to narrators, but I felt this listen could have been really great if not for the narrator.

    One choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves - and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.

    I was once again taken back by another great book by Veronica Roth! It started right where Divergent left off. I was hanging on the edge of my seat the whole time.
    Emma Galvin did a wonderful job with her performance. She brings out the characters in a way that just reading the book couldn't do.

    Would you try another book from Beth Ann Bauman and/or Jaclyn Gaines?

    Probably not, I felt like this book was just about teens and sex. Not real relationships or romance, just sex. I don't think that YA/teens need to read about this.


    Has Jersey Angel turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It sure makes me a lot more leery of this type of book. I will definitely check a lot more carefully as to what the book actually contains.
