    1. shitlistedfaerie come away, human me why faerie untold delights and stiefvater stories forever me i m holding out for a better offer ta.


    2. Okay, I admit it, I think I m getting old 1 Why are fictional YA female characters so stupid I don t care how much you are awed by a hot body and perfect blond hair I m not too old to appreciate that, though I prefer brown hair you should not be following around a mysterious guy who openly admits he is dangerous and you think might be trying to kill you Seriously Mysterious is one thing, maybe he s just brooding or misunderstood Potential first degree murder especially your own is completely una [...]


    3. At first glance, this may seem like just another teen paranormal romance book in the faerie sub category For that reason, it took me weeks after I checked out the book to actually read it But I must confessonce I got started, I was hooked The plot was extremely interesting, the twists on traditional faerie lore quite well planned, and the romance was enjoyable.I can see where people are coming from comparing Luke to Edward Cullen, butwellI didn t like Twilight, and I DID like this book, so read [...]


    4. After putting down this book, the first thing I thought was Man, that was incredible The second thing I thought was WHY MUST THE SEQUEL COME OUT NEXT YEAR AND NOT RIGHT NOW And yes, I thought this in all capital letters But Lament itself is an incredible book The writing is excellent though I saw a few things I d change and, like, two typos overall, but that s me being way too critical The characters are amazing I was so used to reading about heroines who play dumb or have no idea about this or [...]


    5. What I liked about Lament the writing was lyrical, the characters were real, the heroine wasn t a spineless dishrag, and the love interest was an assassin Okay, so I have a thing for assassins The faeries were portrayed as feral and dangerous, which is how they re supposed to be, in my humble opinion And the ending The ending killed me, in a good way The author certainly didn t take the easy way out, forcing a sappy, Happily Ever After onto the characters when logic clearly dictated otherwise Th [...]


    6. Lamentnoun 1 a passionate expression of grief 2 a song, piece of music, or poem expressing grief or regret.I pre ordered Lament when I first heard about it a couple months ago You can imagine my surprise when I received an email confirmation that the book was on the way a little less than a month early Needless to say when it showed up on my doorstep Friday, I did a little happy dance right there in front of my neighbors.And The Story Siren even got a shout out in the novel Okay, not exactly a s [...]


    7. I adore and admire Maggie Stiefvater s writing I think I post this in almost every review of her books, but the way she uses words inspires me to improve my own writing By now, my blatant bias for her work should be apparent Despite Lament s shortcomings when compared to her series starting with Shiver, I still enjoyed it.Deirdre Monaghan is the average above average sixteen year old A gifted musician, she goes through the everyday notions of practicing for performances and satisfying her callou [...]


    8. horrible i ve read several faerie books and this one was the worst the main character just learns of the world of the fey so nonchalantly that it seems completely unbelievable and ridiculous the references that her family was involved with the fey and now isnt is preposterous as the mom and aunt who is or isnt a villain dont get what s going on and the relationship between the 2 protagonists, that they are in love after a few encounters is just sad this was a horrendous book where the plot takes [...]


    9. I absolutely hated the romance aspect of this book First of all this guy comes out of nowhere to participate with Deirdre in a musical competition, and then after he s ALWAYS around WTF He just shows up wherever she is and says he knows lots of things about her I mean, wouldn t you be a little freaked out if there s a guy who you meet one day suddenly shows up at your HOUSE, and when asked how he knew, he just gives the I know lots of things about you deal The romance was super rushed with no re [...]


    10. I don t think that I will ever read anything by Stiefvater again I will use a quote from her book to illustrate my point We sat arm to arm, staring at the same grubby plastic menu, like we were a normal couple, not a telekinetic freak and a soulless fairie assassin I let my imagination run wild with the idea of dating Luke an ordinary teenage boy, me an ordinary girl We d eat the same old barbecue sandwiches we always got, then he d pull me out of the booth by my hand and we d go out to his car [...]


    11. I say unashamedly too that I love Maggie Stiefvater s writing I also found out her name was pronounced Steve otter Knowing how to pronounce it makes a difference, believe me My first introduction was The Scorpio Races, and I swallowed that book with a blissful gulp Then I found Maggie Stiefvater had written a trilogy about faeries and thyme and music After finishing the first, Lament, I have decided that this author is a faerie writer It s impossible to resist the lure of her writing The style o [...]


    12. You re like me We re watchers of this world, aren t we Not players This is my unofficial review to which I honestly don t know what else to write because, in typical Stiefvater fashion, Maggie has managed to ensnare me on yet another journey of whimsical beings and doomed love I ve heard from so many various sources yes, book friends included that anything else Stiefvater has written cannot amount to the sheer radiance of The Raven Cycle so don t bother , and while I somewhat agree, partially be [...]


    13. I felt like I had a big question mark on my forehead the whole time The author tried to explain things towards the end, but it was still really confusing The main character, Deirdre, is pretty smart, but she doesn t seem to like to know or want to understand anything that s going on in her life A smart girl would question everything especially when a weirdo guy just pops up in my life and has stalker like qualities Also, the first chapter was SO FUNNY Come on, they just started playing together [...]


    14. In this book an ordinary feeling young woman is initiated into an invisible world of magic and intrigue Nervous and clumsy, our protagonist is yet mysteriously beautiful and alluring to the male hero, who is hundreds of years older than he looks, has his own painful supernatural history, and is really cut Occasionally her feelings overcome her physically and he has to pick her up and carry her somewhere The young woman s parents are clueless to the point of near negligence It s uncomfortable to [...]


    15. ehhhh instalove.Besides that removing at least 2 stars for the terrible cliche of it all , the fae side of this was handled beautifully I had fun, once the compulsive eye rolling stopped The writing is actually pretty good, and the illustrations were nice too.


    16. This book is everything I longed for Wicked Lovely to be I got sucked in first chapter and settled back and let Maggie Stiefvater take me away Fairies done right intriguing and vicious , the joys sorrows of young love, and natural feeling amusing dialogue combined with a seductive sadness undertone to the writing makes this book freaking brilliant.



    17. This is a pretty bizarre book, the main characters make decisions that you will face palm over, I assure you.My biggest peeve in this book other than the whole let s just not ask questions about anything is that upon learning that Luke Dillon has killeda hell of a lot of people, Dee is repelledr 5 seconds before she s throwing herself back at him, it was ridiculous Yes, Luke has good reasons for everything he s ding a psycho queen tortures his caged soul to get him to do her bidding because he r [...]


    18. Eerie fae, humans who have been trapped for centuries, and a modern singer harpist pulled between friendship, the lover of her true dreams, and family This book is haunting and irresistible I m looking forward to reading the next one


    19. Loved the character of Luke, one of my favorite YA boys this year Thought Deirdre had an interesting arc, her connection with Luke was powerful I really liked the detailed connection between music and power, and the incredibly articulated visual images of the book.


    20. Yet another promising YA novel ruined by raging hormones I liked that the heroine takes things in stride and doesn t wuss out but she mainly accomplishes this by fangirling and obsessing over her love interest instead of worrying about imminent death The writing and plot are sloppy, definitely can tell this book was an early work for Stiefvater.


    21. Deirdre meets Luke at an audition one day They play some amazing music together, and by the end of the day, Deirdre is than a little infatuated But Luke isn t the only stranger appearing in her life All kinds of weird people and events start surrounding her, and it s obvious that Luke has something to do with it.First of all, can I just say that I don t read all that much YA, but I am sick to death of the inevitable love triangle Sick of it Lament was a little low key than others I ve read but [...]


    22. I don t know why I even continued reading this book after the first chapter I knew I wouldn t like it It is like Twilight revamped, but without the vamps pun intended So here goes spoiler alert Girl meets mysterious Boy who has no personality but is really hot, and Girl decides she is in love with him Boy is supposed to kill Girl oops Girl finds out Boy has murdered 100s of people and is supposed to murder her Girl decides she is still in love with Boy even though he has murdered 100s of people [...]


    23. A new voice in urban fantasy has entered the scene In the tradition of Melissa Marr and Holly Black, Stiefvater has created a world filled with the strangeness of faerie, strafed by their cruelty and endangered by their attention Deirdre is a gifted musician who plays the harp and sings, but she gets horrible stage fright While throwing up before a competition, she is helped by a boy from her dreams, Luke Dillon Luke performs with Deirdre, together creating incredible music and winning the grand [...]


    24. Actual Rating 3.5 Surprisingly I didn t enjoy it as much as I did all her other works o_o I think the main thing that turned me off was the insta love _ It only took a few days for Deirdre and Luke to take off romantically Even the heroine herself realized this and would think things like I m an idiot for doing this Every nerve is telling me reasons not to but I m just stupid in love I hate it when girls lose their sense, and worse they KNOW it over a guy.What s crazy is, reading this I realized [...]


    25. Good faerie story mediocre romance Maybe, if I had not read the exceptionally wonderful Shiver before, I would have liked Lament My expectations have been too high, I guess I liked the concept of those evil faeries, inhumanly beautiful, powerful and always enjoying to toy with human prey The connection to Irish folklore and Irish traditional music was well crafted The suspense factor was also really high.What did not reach my heart was the supposedly romantic atmosphere though a lot of tense an [...]


    26. This book was so frustrating to read, and by the end I m still not sure my questions are answered I know at times Dierdre was confused, but often I didn t understand what she figuring out or so bugged with her for not asking the right questions or figuring out the right answers when it just unnecessarily prolonged suspense There was enough suspense without having to keep the reader in the dark I can only handle so many unanswered questions before I get frustrated trying to keep them all straight [...]


    27. Maggie Stiefvater has a new book, Shiver, coming out this August which sounds really terrific, so I thought I d finally track down a copy of her first novel Lament to see if it was any good And it was Lament is exactly the kind of novel I enjoy a love story between a modern day teenager and a prisoner of the faerie world and that was really part of my problem I have an obsession with the ballad of Tam Lin, the story of a faerie captive being rescued by a mortal girl, and have read nearly anythin [...]


    28. Lament by Maggie Stiefvater is a mystical magical tale of the world of Faerie that is sure to delight even the most unbelieving reader This is a tale woven so beautifully that it flows like water through your fingers A tale that is sure to entertain all ages and a great summer read for your teen young adult.Deirdre Monaghan is a normal teenage girl but with musical talent that is well beyond her years A musical gift that comes so naturally that it could even make the angels weep Only problem is, [...]


    29. So I needed something sweet and scary, with a little humor and some faeries I didn t really know much about LAMENT, so it was kind of surprising how much I was looking forward to it But I was just getting this vibe Like good things would be inside And these good things seemed to carry with them a hint ofMelissa Marr goodness mixed with someHolly Black awesome I got what I was looking for and .Deirdre plays the harp Her best friend James is a piper And hilarious with it The two of them together a [...]
