The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, Book 2)
The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, Book 2) | Maggie Stiefvater
If you could steal things from dreams, what would you take? Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself. One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams. And sometimes hes not the only one who wants those things. Ronan is one of the raven boys a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy. The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronans secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface changing everything in its wake. Of THE RAVEN BOYS, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY wrote, Maggie Stiefvaters cant-put-it-down paranormal adventure will leave you clamoring for book two. Now the second book is here, with the same wild imagination, dark romance, and heart-stopping twists that only Maggie Stiefvater can conjure. Praise for THE DREAM THIEVES: * "Richly written and filled with figurative language...this story of secrets and dreams, of brothers and of all-too-real magic is an absolute marvel of imagination and an irresistible invitation to wonder." --BOOKLIST, starred review * "Mind-blowingly spectacular... Stiefvater's careful exploration of class and wealth and their limitations and opportunities astounds with its sensitivity and sophistication. The pace is electric, the prose marvelously sure-footed and strong, but it's the complicated characters...that meld magic and reality into an engrossing, believable whole." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS, starred review * "A paranormal thriller...this installment [is] more tense and foreboding than its predecessorand every bit as gripping." -- PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review * "A complex web of magical intrigue and heartstopping action." -- THE BULLETIN, starred review * "Readers who want a moody chill and appreciate an atmospheric turn of phrase will want to spread more time in Henrietta." -- SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, starred review

THE DREAM THIEVES is a fount of tension filtered through teenage insecurity masquerading as bravado. I never want to shut up about it, but I don‘t want to talk about it, either.

Because loving it means I‘ve got to hold a multitude of worlds inside myself, all at once. Discussion waters that down. You either know it or you don‘t, and if you don‘t, I ain‘t inclined to explain it.

Which is kinda mean. Sorry.

You should read it so you‘ll know.

I stopped off for a free peppermint mocha, which I gulped down while I read a few more chapters of THE DREAM THIEVES. Isn‘t this year‘s holiday McCafe cup cute? It also sorta fit the book, on account of the stags that appear in the series.

(Okay; that‘s stretching. I just wanted to show y‘all my cute cup.)

Sace It looks delicious! 2d
xicanti @Sace it was very nice. The sprinkles on the top were sort of like popping candy. 2d

Breakfast involved an extra large plate of eggs and THE DREAM THIEVES, which remains magnificent.

On an intellectual level I totally get that individual taste is A Thing and people have the right to dislike stuff, but on an emotional level I‘m PERSONALLY OFFENDED that this book doesn‘t have a 100% Litsy rating. That‘s the way it is between me and THE DREAM THIEVES.

AlizaApp Agreed! I love the entire Raven Cycle but have a special place in my heart for the Dream Thieves ❤️ 3d

This is my aunt and uncle‘s cat, Mr Gray. “Hey!” I said when I heard about the adoption. “I know a hit man of that name!”

No one was impressed. Clearly they don‘t read the right books.

I made a small start on THE DREAM THIEVES earlier, and this time through it‘s really hit me how Mr Gray (the hit man one, not the cat one) and The Will (from SAGA) operate on the same narrative frequency. The parallels, they are abundant.

QuietlyLaura Hello, Mr. Gray! Welcome to Litsy! Super cute kitty.😻💕 4d

Yes yes yes!! This one focused so much on Ronan and I was here for every bit of it. I loved how Maggie went from writing “And Ronan cursed” in book 1 to Actually writing out curse words in book 2, Haha. The story once again captivating and oh my god that slow burn between Gansey and Blue has me hooked!!! I can‘t deal man!

#SoaringScores Day 11: #ANationOfThieves reminded me of this fantasy series. What a brilliant concept, these dream thieves, allowing one to fashion worlds in dreams and plucking them out from trees, planting them firmly in this world – giving birth to creations that are half-real and half-nightmares. My review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-8Hn

CrowCAH Sounds very interesting- dream thieves. 1mo

I liked this book, I didn‘t love it. It‘s hard to explain because the characters are compelling, & some I even like, and the story line is different from anything I‘ve read before. But I think Stiefvater‘s writing style is difficult for me to really get lost in, so these books may be destined to always be a so-so from me.

My week in a recap. Walking, reading, back to work trainings and a BBQ at a friends house so the kids could play in the pool before they all head back to school on Monday.

I managed to get 217 out of 200 minutes of exercise in and 63,217 steps out of 75k. I think I set the step goal too high but we will see next week once students return and I‘m back to full on educator mode.

I enjoyed the second installment of The Raven Boys more than the first. The story began to expand into new territory and moved at a faster pace. I also liked the development of "magic" even if some of it felt like it came out of no where at first. Overall, a solid read.

Cailey_Mac I‘m actually reading this as my nighttime kindle book (yes I know that‘s a little odd) and I‘m loving it! I really like Blue and her family and how the boys fit in to her life 4mo

I loved this book. This series just keeps getting better! Maggie Stiefvater has created a fantastic world in the mountains of Henrietta Virginia. I really like Ronan's character development in this. I'm anxious to see how things progress in the next book. I'm starting Blue Lily, Lily Blue right now.

TheAromaofBooks I have been meaning to read these books forever, since I have enjoyed some Stiefvater's other writing, and enjoy her as a person so much. And now she is writing a spin-off series for this one, so I really need to get on it!! 4mo

Pretty damn good. I was hooked from the beginning. Ronan is an intriguing character and I liked getting to know him better in this book. His abilities are fascinating. That ending was great and I got something I had hoped for. I hope the author focuses more on Noah at some point in the next few books.

Last review of 2018!!!

The second book concentrates Ronan and his dreams. It‘s a fittingly strange book to end 2018 with. Started off slow but suddenly burst into life about halfway through. I‘m not a diehard fan of the series but I will probably finish reading it. 3.5🌟

I already know it's going to be one of those I re-read over and over again. I enjoyed how the story focused mainly on Ronan, who quickly became my favourite Raven Boy, and the struggles he had to face. All of the characters grow as the story progresses which always makes me fall for a book. I loved how the magic was different to the stereotypical fireballs and ice walls... it is more believable - the kind of magic you wish was real.

But first need a quick flight of the conchords listen because “I‘m not crying it‘s just been raining on my face” also thanks to this book “my eyes are just a little sweaty today”.

The only downer (for me) that‘s been looming since the prologue of the first book is the ~true love~ nonsense, but it‘s still not big enough to take away from the great story and other themes in this book.
