TBR Thursday [40]

Posted December 15, 2016 by Kim in TBR Thursday / 5 Comments

Happy Thursday! You know what that means… time for a new TBR Thursday!

My feature was influenced by Teresa @ Readers Live a Thousand Lives and her On My Shelf posts. I love love love the idea of spotlighting a title from my shelf (or, you know, my eReader) and seeing what you think about it. Sometimes it seems like everyone is reading the same books at the same time and older titles have a way of just fading from the radar. I love this way of featuring an older title and, of course, getting a chance to talk about it with other bloggers and readers. And I want to force myself to do it regularly, hence the TBR Thursday title.

If you’d like to join in on the fun, I’ve created a banner you can use – or you can always make your own! (Right click and save as to grab the image for yourself.) Share your links in the comments and I’ll swing by and visit!


I’ve been a little lazy lately when it comes to my TBR Thursday posts and I apologize for that. (Honestly I’ve been a lazy blogger period. I’m trying to get better.) Anyhow, I decided to use a few of my TBR Thursday feature posts to highlight books that are STILL sitting on my shelves on NetGalley, despite the publication date having already passed. (I’m ashamed.)


TBR Thursday [40]The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
Series: The Raven Cycle #2
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance
Publication date: September 13, 2016
Publisher: Scholastic
Add it: Goodreads
Buy it: Amazon

The second installment in the all-new series from the masterful, #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater!

Now that the ley lines around Cabeswater have been woken, nothing for Ronan, Gansey, Blue, and Adam will be the same. Ronan, for one, is falling more and more deeply into his dreams, and his dreams are intruding more and more into waking life. Meanwhile, some very sinister people are looking for some of the same pieces of the Cabeswater puzzle that Gansey is after…

This book was published in September 2013. (I know. So damn ashamed.) It’s the second in a series and I was really excited about it when I got it. Then, as time went on, I lost enthusiasm for it. Now it’s been so long that I remember NOTHING about the first book. Which means I’d have to read it and then this one. Is it worth it? So many of my Goodreads friends love this series. I guess I’m not totally convinced because I don’t read a lot of YA these days… and the YA I read is mostly contemporary. Convince me! 🙂


Let's Chat

Have you read The Dream Thieves?
Should I give it a shot?
Or should I just admit I’m never going to read it and send that feedback?

  1. Everyone raves about this series but I didn’t love her other trilogy so I never really had a desire to start this one…. I am deff a black sheep though because everyone else seems to love her work.

      I enjoyed SOME of her Wolves of Mercy Falls series, but not in the way that other people did. I think that’s part of the reason I never really committed to this one.
