“The Dream Thieves” by Maggie Stiefvater

The Dream Thieves

Unfortunately, I was bored by this despite the fast cars, loud music, and drugs.

Quick summary:

The search for Glendower continues.

We focus on Ronan.

There is a new threat in the form of a Mr. Grey.

Anger sparks, feelings develop, dreaming, and Adam wanders aimlessly down a road.

My thoughts:

SPOILERS so skip to the Overall section below if you haven’t read the book.

It was an okay read. A solid 3 stars; but I was disappointed because I really enjoyed the first book and this installment didn’t match up to that one. This one starts out slow like the first, but this time the pace bored me and unfortunately, my interest didn’t rise much as the story progressed.

What happened?

Well, I was busy with work and stressed from personal worries which drained me and made me not want to blog or sometimes read. That set me back. I don’t know when I’ll be back on track but for now, here’s February’s book haul.

Weekend Reads #37: Choosing a New Blog Theme

Weekend Reads is a weekly discussion on a variety of topics. At the end of the post, I’ll include what I plan to read on the weekend.

This weekend’s question/topic:

I think it’s time for a new theme.

Though I am a curious person and enjoy visiting new places, I don’t like change. If I find something I’m comfortable with, I’d rather not alter it or get something new even if I’m somewhat tired of that thing or have outgrown it. However, change has been on my mind recently as I consider different facets of my life and this blog.
