My Thoughts:

     Books and hype just don’t seem to be my cup of tea as of late.  It’s like a bad combination of food.  Like, would you ever eat tuna on a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with cheese?  I don’t think so—that sounds gross even in writing. 

     I honestly wanted to give Maggie Stiefvater another chance, since sometimes sequels happen to be better than the first book in the series.  After reading The Raven Boys I thought that the series was relatively ok, and I was curious to know more about Ronan.  So I gave the Raven Cycle Series another try.  And I have to say I’m disappointed, I was expecting something I didn’t really get.  Since this is a DNF post, it shouldn’t be hard to guess that I didn’t finish The Dream Thieves.  While the ideas surrounding the events in the book were interesting enough, I had a hard time getting into the story.  While the writing wasn’t the worst I’ve read this year, some of the sentences left me a little perplexed—some just didn’t really fit at all.  And some of the scenes could have been left out altogether.  So in the end, will I be continuing this series?  No, sorry.  This book just didn’t fit for me, but if you want to give it a go, be my guest.
