Once upon a time, there was a fabulous teen librarian who liked to read and to cook about as much as she loved to travel, and nearly as much as she loved a case of the terribles and her crusty sidekick, Le Creuset...
If this was not a free service already provided by librarians already paid by our tax dollars in ALL public libraries, anyone trying to sell you a book at a fabulous independent book store, or like...the entire Internet, I might actually be terrified by that incredibly professional looking sign.
The Dream Thieves Maggie Stiefvater Scholastic Press: New York, September 17, 2013 ISBN: 9780545424943 ARC provided by publisher
Picking up right where she left us agonizing over Ronan Lynch’s admission that he can bring his dreams to life in The Raven Boys, Maggie Stiefvater does not disappoint in her second entry to this unique, lavish yet subtly magical YA cycle. The Dream Thieves begins with a new point of view: Ronans, and takes us straight back to Henrietta, Virginia. It is summer vacation, and Gansey, Ronan, Adam, Noah, and Blue are still on the hunt for Glendower, though there have been subtle and not so subtle shifts in the group dynamic. Adam’s rogue sacrifice and pride begin to affect his relationships with Gansey and Blue, who finds herself closer to exploring prophecy that has defined her life. Ronan, meanwhile, struggles to control his newly admitted powers, but all, including the refreshing, interested adult psychics of 300 Fox Way, are challenged when a stranger arrives in town searching for the Graywaren. Who, what, where this is will all be revealed in the scintillating new addition to the Raven Cycle. It is a recommended read for humans over the age of 12, and all libraries, personal, public, and scholastic, wise enough to boast The Raven Boys as part of their holdings.
Let’s cut right to the chase: holy sh*tf*re and tarnation, cowpokes. Jonesing for a book I could get lost in, I loved The Dream Thieves, maybe even more than Raven Boys. Sophomore syndrome? What is that? Aside from a setting for the climax best described as Hollywood dance movie meets Fast and Furious meets Alien v. Predator (which still, somehow, works), this book is allll a-game, no steroids (I’m looking at you, MLB). Continued:
