Hey, Blue. Meet Gansey.

So, when I woke up this morning and checked my blog roll, I saw that Maggie Stiefvater is holding a contest for an ARC of her upcoming novel THE RAVEN BOYS. 

My reaction?

Not appropriate for this blog.

The rules?

Post this book trailer for THE RAVEN BOYS:

Cool fact: Maggie Steifvater animated and composed the music for this book trailer. It's brilliant and artistic and completely different than anything out there. I appreciate the fact that Steifvater bounces to the beat of her own very creative drum. Not many people do. And I'm not just saying that because if I made a book trailer it would look something like this:

But it would. So...

Here's a blurb from Goodreads if you don't know anything about the book:

"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. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, 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 never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore."

Woo! Kissing and Raven Boys and Death and Curses and Kissing!

I am so there.

(I almost just had a my precioouusss moment but I stopped myself)
