Book Review : The Dream Thieves By Maggie Stiefavter SPOILERS

The Dream Thieves (The Raven Cycle, #2)The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
verdict  :  A must   read  

May 20- September 28
If you could steal things from dreams, what would you take?

Ronan Lynch has secrets. Some he keeps from others. Some he keeps from himself.

One secret: Ronan can bring things out of his dreams.

And sometimes he's not the only one who wants those things.

Ronan is one of the raven boys - a group of friends, practically brothers, searching for a dead king named Glendower, who they think is hidden somewhere in the hills by their elite private school, Aglionby Academy. The path to Glendower has long lived as an undercurrent beneath town. But now, like Ronan's secrets, it is beginning to rise to the surface - changing everything in its wake.

Review : This book was awesome I love Ronan well I love all the boys but Ronan is an interesting character he can take things from his dream he created chainsaw from his dreams . Cabeswater is gone Ronan created it and it's just gone . His father could do what Ronan can do and he created Ronan's mother who is stuck in a dream state . We meet a new character the gray man who is a hit man who was hired to take the greywaren who is Ronan he goes to 300 fox way and gets his reading done and ends up taking blue's mom on a date . Kavinsky can do what Ronan can do also but he's also fucking crazy he speed races with ronan a lot I'm pretty sure he's gay just the way he acts around Ronan . But he takes this pill that gets him in his dreams it's very weird . Ronan created this creature from this dream which was scary as hell . Adam and Gansey go to DC and Adam goes missing for a bit and looses his memory of how he went missing . Blue still hasn't told Adam about her curse and he doesn't know why she wont kiss him . Noah and Blue kiss it was so cute . Blue finally tells Adam about her curse after he came back and she tells him that it won't be him . She takes a ride with Gansey and they talk and they like each other but there trying to ignore it so they won't hurt Adam but there so cute together . Ronan likes Adam like there are little hints that were given . Ronan's other brother mathew is so adorable and Ronan cares for him unlike his other brother . Ronan and Mathew break into there house that there not allowed to be in and someone else breaks in and takes the box that Ronan created from his dream . Kavinsky takes Mathew and Ronan and him have this huge fight they find mathew and Kavinsky is dead . Cabeswater is back and they take Ronan's mother there and she wakes up I loved this book at the end Ronan says that ones of his secrets is Adam oh my god . onto the next one .
Quotes:
you are still wearing those incredibly stupid boat shoes and of all the things you have bought , you still haven't replaced them !
Ronan eyed Noah . I'm seeing an apparition right now . Noah made a rude gesture, a hilariously unthreatening act coming from him , like a growl from a kitten.

What's that ?
Jane ! Gansey said joyfully
Adam said , it's a wizard in a box.
It will do your homework , Noah added .
And it's been dating your girlfriend , Ronan finished
Blue scowled. Are you all drunk ?

In that moment , Blue was a little in love with all of them . Their magic . Their quest. Their awfulness and strangeness . Her raven boys .

“I wish you could be kissed, Jane,' he said. 'Because I would beg just one off you. Under all this.' He flailed an arm toward the stars.”


A secret is a strange thing.

There are three kinds of secrets. One is the sort everyone knows about, the sort you need at least two people for. One to keep it. One to never know. The second is a harder kind of secret: one you keep from yourself. Every day, thousands of confessions are kept from their would-be confessors, none of these people knowing that their never-admitted secrets all boil down to the same three words: I am afraid.

And then there is the third kind of secret, the most hidden kind. A secret no one knows about. Perhaps it was known once, but was taken to the grave. Or maybe it is a useless mystery, arcane and lonely, unfound because no one ever looked for it.

Sometimes, some rare times, a secret stays undiscovered because it is something too big for the mind to hold. It is too strange, too vast, too terrifying to contemplate.

All of us have secrets in our lives. We’re keepers or keptfrom, players or played. Secrets and cockroaches — that’s what will be left at the end of it all.”

Ronan's bedroom door burst open. Hanging on the door frame, Ronan leaned out to peer past Gansey. He was doing that thing where he looked like both the dangerous Ronan he was now and the cheerier Ronan he had been when Gansey first met him.

"Hold on," Gansey told Adam. Then, to Ronan: "Why would he be?"

"No reason. Just no reason." Ronan slammed his door.

Gansey asked Adam, "Sorry. You still have that suit for the party?"

Adam's response was buried in the sound of the second-story door falling open. Noah slouched in. In a wounded tone, he said, "He threw me out the window!"

Ronan's voice sang out from behind his closed door: "You're already dead!”

He left Chainsaw behind, much to her irritation. Ronan didn't want her to learn any bad language.”

When Maura opened the door of 300 Fox Way, she found the Gray Man standing pensively on the other side. He had brought her two things: a daisy-chain crown, which he somberly placed on her head, and a pink switchblade, which he handed to her. Both had taken some effort to procure. The first because the Gray Man had forgotten how to efficiently link daisies and the second because switchblades were illegal in Virginia, even if they were pink.”

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she knows about only from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae.

Quotes:
“I love you,’ he whispered, and kissed my brow. ‘Thorns and all.”

Don't feel bad for one moment about doing what brings you joy.”

“Rhysand stared at me for long enough that I faced him.
"Be glad of your human heart, Feyre. Pity those who don't feel anything at all.”

There are those who seek me a lifetime but never we meet,
And those I kiss but who trample me beneath ungrateful feet.

At times I seem to favor the clever and the fair,
But I bless all those who are brave enough to dare.

By large, my ministrations are soft-handed and sweet,
But scorned, I become a difficult beast to defeat.

For though each of my strikes lands a powerful blow,
When I kill, I do it slow... ”

Would you like me to grovel with gratitude for bringing me here, High Lord?"

"Ah. The Suriel told you nothing important, did it?"

That smile of his sparked something bold in my chest. "He also said that you liked being brushed, and if I'm a clever girl, I might train you with treats."

Tamlin tipped his head to the sky and roared with laughter. Despite myself, I let out a quiet laugh.

"I might die of surprise," Lucien said behind me. "You made a joke, Feyre."

I turned to look at him with a cool smile. "You don't want to know what the Suriel said about you." I flicked my brows up, and Lucien lifted his hands in defeat.

"I'd pay good money to hear what the Suriel thinks of Lucien," Tamlin said.

A cork popped, followed by the sounds of Lucien chugging the bottle's contents and chuckling with a muttered, "Brushed.”

Because I wouldn't want to die alone," I said, and my voice wobbled as I looked at Tamlin again, forcing myself to meet his stare. "Because I'd want someone to hold my hand until the end, and awhile after that.
That's something everyone deserves, human or faerie.”

I heard you scream,” he said as he examined the blade in my hands. I’d never held one so finely crafted, so perfectly balanced. “And I hesitated. Not long, but I hesitated before I came running. Even though Tam got there in time, I still broke my word in those seconds I waited.” He jerked his chin at the knife. “It’s yours. Don’t bury it in my back, please

Blood filled my mouth, warm as it dribbled out between my lips. I gazed at Tamlin's masked face one last time.

"Love," I breathed, the world crumbling into a blackness with no end. A pause in Amarantha's magic. "The answer to the riddle...," I got out, chocking on my own blood, "is... love."

Tamlin's eyes went wide before something forever cracked in my spine.”

Book review: Miss peregrine's home for Peculiar Children by randsom riggs SPOILERS

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #1)Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Verdict  :  It  was okay
3.5 out of 5
August 22- September 16



A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.

A horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.


Review : This book was and enjoyable ride Jacob's grandfather has been telling him these stories since he was little and he used to believe them but as he got older he didn't so anymore until one day when he went to visit his grandfather and his grandfather was attacked by a monster and his family called him crazy cause he said he saw a monster he was sent to therapy Jacob and his father end up going to wales so Jacob can see this house which is falling apart . Jacob wants to see if he can find any of the people who lived in the house way back then but there all dead killed by the bombs . And then Jacob goes to this house one last time and he see them the children and he's chasing after them and ends up back in there time before they were killed it's called a loop so the day repeats day after day he meets Emma a girl who tried to kill him because she thought he was endangering her . we meet a lot of interesting characters and I loved the photograph element added to the book it made it more interesting . Bad things are happening outside of the loop sheep are ending up murdered some guy was killed and there is a strange person around . Emma and Jacob's grandfather were involved and Jacob and Emma end up sort of liking each other . The house was under attack a weigt ended up taking miss peregrine . Jacob killed one who was his therapist. Jacob decides he wants to stay with them but he has to tell his father and when he's about to everyone shows up it was a funny scene I'm looking forward to reading the next book.
Quotes:
I used to dream about escaping my ordinary life, but my life was never ordinary. I had simply failed to notice how extraordinary it was.

We cling to our fairy tales until the price for believing in them becomes too high.”

Stars, too, were time travelers. How many of those ancient points of light were the last echoes of suns now dead? How many had been born but their light not yet come this far? If all the suns but ours collapsed tonight, how many lifetimes would it take us to realize we were alone? I had always known the sky was full of mysteries—but not until now had I realized how full of them the earth was.”

“How many times have I told you? Polite persons do not take supper in the nude

I don't mean to be rude' I said, 'but what are you people?'
'We're peculiar,' he replied, sounding a bit puzzled. 'Aren't you?;
'I don't know. I don't think so'
'That's a shame.”
