The Dream Thieves

This is the sequel to The Raven Boys. I wrote a review for it here.

If you’ve read my review for The Raven Boys, you’ll know that I don’t like it that much. (Actually , I don’t really like it at all.) It took me almost an entire month to get through it. The Dream Thieves took me longer than that.

I bought the two books at the same time because I had high hopes for the series. I had heard so many people go on and on about how much they love The Raven Cycle. Some of them had similar reading tastes to mine, so I figured I would love it too. Or at least enjoy it.

I first tried to read this book during the summer. I wasn’t feeling it, so I put it down. Then I tried to read it for two different readathons, because I thought that it would push me to read it and finish it, but I was never in the mood to read it. It’s so boring from the beginning. For the second readathon, after the third attempt to read the physical copy, I decided to listen to the audiobook and that is how I finally finished the book. Eventually. On the fourth try. Nobody can say that I didn’t give this series a good go.

The Dream Thieves doesn’t pick up until about halfway through the book. I was struggling to get through the first few chapters because it’s so slow. When I switched to the audiobook, I listened to it at double speed. This made everything easier and, of course, faster.

Honestly, I have no idea what was going on in this book. Everything was confusing and there was no point. I have no words for this book. I just don’t get it. That pretty much sums up my feelings of this book?

The only thing I know is that Adam is still annoying and he’s connected to Cabeswater. And Ronan can take things from his dreams. Also, there’s a hit-man(?) that’s looking for something (which actually turns out to be Ronan?) and hooks up with Blue’s mom? There’s a lot going on in this book, while also feeling like there’s nothing going on at all.

It took me months to finish it, and four tries to do that, and I can’t even tell you what this book is really about. Sorry.

Have you read The Dream Thieves? Did you like it? Did you understand it? Let me know down below!

Happy Reading!

Love, Lece
