EXCELSIOR | A Raven Cycle Playlist

“If one squinted into Cabeswater long enough, in the right way, one could see secrets dart between the trees. The shadows of horned animals that never appeared. The winking lights of another summer’s fireflies. The rushing sound of many wings, the sound of a massive flock always out of sight. Magic.”  — Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven Cycle

I hope you guys enjoy this playlist, and that it transports you into the breathtakingly magical world that is The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater! I hope you can imagine Cabeswater’s trees whispering nonsensical words to you; feel the heart-pounding thrill that comes with the search for lost, sleeping kings and wishes to be granted; imagine the psychics of 300 Fox Way bickering about trivial things like vocabulary and cats; listen to the rumble of the Camaro’s unreliable engine roaring to life; feel the cool night air billowing in through one of the many windows at Monmouth, rustling the pages of Gansey’s worn journal; see Henrietta’s hills basking in late summer sunshine… I hope you listen to these songs and dream the world to life.
