Ravin' Girls: A Raven Cycle Podcast
About This Show
## We're Shannon and Nievita, and we're the Ravin' Girls! This is our Raven Cycle podcast, where we discuss and analyze Maggie Stiefvater's Raven Cycle books. We discuss the Raven Cycle as a cycle, taking a look at the connections and foreshadowing running throughout the series. We analyze and discuss the themes of the books. We talk character arcs as we follow the development of these wonderfully complex characters. We also often take a 'deep dive' into a specific topic relevant to the chapters we're covering in that episode. Episodes will be posted twice monthly, with each episode focusing on approximately 3-4 chapters of material. Come join us as we follow the adventures of four dysfunctional teenagers and their dead Welsh boyfriend!Read more »

Ravin' Girls Episode 14: Guacamole Love
Welcome to Episode 14, where we cover Chapters 39-43 of The Raven Boys!
We are just one episode away from the end of Season 1 and wrapping up the first book of the Raven Cycle. It’s been a lot of laughs and tears so far, and just like these chapters we are winding up to go out with a stampede! Or, well, something like that. Shannon drops some Transformers trivia and calls Nievita out on her taste in men; Nievita makes a Rick Riordan joke and questions whether Punxsutawney Phil is actually immortal as claimed; and we discuss terrible lunch habits and that Whelk is indeed correct on one thing and one thing only… guacamole might be worth committing murder for.
