The Dream Thieves | Maggie Stiefvater

Pickpick

Finished #2 in The Raven Boys series by Maggie Stiefvater: The Dream Thieves. Wow! What a ride! Even though my daughter has a pristine, autographed copy of this book (or maybe that‘s part of it) I listened to it on audiobook. The narrator was amazingly perfect for this book and made the fantastical parts even more thrilling. Where can we go from here? #132 #BookSpinBingo #21 (#BS in October) #BFC21 #SERIES2021 #THANKFULATHON #ROYALREADATHON

Finished listening to this one on my way there and back to a weight loss clinic. That probably doesn‘t matter at all, but this was such a sweet story and I will never hear, “Don‘t you wish you were here?” In the same way again. If you need to lift your spirits, read this book. #100YEARS100BOOKS #96 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #23 #BookSpinBingo #21 #THANKFULATHON #BOOKED2021 (color)

Book #4 for the #MermaidMarathonReads Readathon! What an interesting twist on the original. We get to meet the Princess that the Prince was to marry and learn how she felt and how she was involved in the story (at least this author‘s idea of the story). I loved the hopeful ending just as much as The Little Mermaid, maybe more. #100YEARS100BOOKS #87 #BookSpinBingo #10 #BFC21 #1 #TAILSandTALESforADULTS #14 #FAIRYTALECHALLENGE #ThankfulAthon

Here‘s my July #BookSpin list! Lots of series catch-ups this month, and some new things. I‘m doing the #MermaidMarathonReads Readathon, the #ThankfulAthon, and I have started reading about the First Ladies. I‘m always excited to start a new month! 💕📚😊🎶📚

Read 15 books in April! Still way ahead of where I used to be. Not as much fun as #MiddleGradeMarch, but a successful #YApril in my opinion. I read 9 YA books, finished 5 of the 6 prompts for Spring #BOOKED2021, 3 books for the #DisabilityReadathon and decided to continue reading books with disabled authors or MC each month, read 6 of the 7 prompts for #ThankfulAthon. Also added 15 books to my quest of reading 100 books this year! A good month!

This Cinderella story is dark at times and has an unexpected ending. It‘s full of adventure, love and magic. There are many other fairytale characters woven into it. I had fun picking them out. #100YEARS100BOOKS #61 #BookSpinBingo #5 #YApril #9 #ThankfulAthon

The Raven Boys | Maggie Stiefvater

Finished this right before Station 19 & Grey‘s Anatomy today! I have been wanting to read this for a long time. It‘s about a girl whose mother and “aunts” are psychics and a boy who is looking for a long-lost Welsh King. It‘s full of interesting facts and relationships among friends. I am anxious to read the next one! #100YEARS100BOOKS #58 #BookSpinBingo #BS #13 #BFC21 #SERIES2021 #YApril #ThankfulAthon

TheSpineView Way to go! 1y
TheAromaofBooks I just finished this series & am on to Call Down the Hawk. I quite liked them, although I wasn't 100% satisfied with some of the ways Stiefvater chose to answer story questions in the conclusion... but that's down to personal preference haha 1y
Allylu @TheAromaofBooks My daughter is a fan of Maggie Stiefvater, has met her briefly 2 or 3 times and heard her speak. I like the way she crafts her story, but I did have unanswered questions at the end - but there are 3 more books, so... Glad to hear your view. 1y
TheAromaofBooks I definitely feel like this book felt more like it was setting up a story than it was its own story, if that makes sense. The conclusion of the books was satisfactory - it's not like she left a bunch of loose ends - there were just a couple of things I wish had gone a different direction than they did lol I also heard her speak when she was on tour for All the Crooked Saints & so enjoyed her presentation. 1y

Found this audiobook working on a challenge to read award-winning books. It won The Christy Award. It‘s about a white family who lived in an Ethiopian village, then returned to Greenville, SC in the 60‘s and how their daughters deal with the way 5 black students are treated as they are integrated into the white high school. A very different perspective. 5stars #100YEARS100BOOKS #57 #BookSpinBingo #21 #BFC21 #BOOKED2021 #YApril #ThankfulAthon

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 1y

Isn‘t that cover gorgeous? So, this is volume 2 in the Cursebreakers series by Brigid Kemmerer and returning to Emberfall seems like coming home. This one is focused on Gray and he has a problem with an unlikely set of companions to aid him. Lots of adventure, magic, treachery and romance. #100YEARS100BOOKS #56 #BookSpinBingo #23 #BFC21 #SERIES2021 #YApril #5 #DisabilityReadathon #ThankfulAthon #AwesomeApril

#YApril book #1 This is the sequel to Dread Nation and it picks up where Jane and Katherine are running for their lives, as usual. The exciting action continues as they fight the Dead and move from place to place. That‘s all I can say without spoiling it. The audiobook doesn‘t disappoint! #100YEARS100BOOKS (halfway there!) #BookSpinBingo #2 #BFC21 #SERIES2021 #YApril #DISABILITYREADATHON #ThankfulAthon
