Because I'm Batman

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater (1 star)

The Dream Thieves - Maggie Stiefvater

Really interesting use of magic, literally making dreams come true, and I liked how it tied into Cabeswater, which keeps it connected to the main quest.

The writing was descriptive and easy to fly through.

I don't really care about any of the characters.

Increased sexuality was at best awkward and at worst creepy. Didn't enjoy the homosexual undertones. Not my cup of tea.

Adam. Mostly because I understand him too well, his infuriating pride and the selfish, hateful mentality he hangs onto. It pokes at sore spots.

I wouldn't call it boring, but there were parts where I wasn't interested. 

Lack of answers. I came out of it with a ton of questions and zero answers. How many dream thieves are there? How/why did two end up in the same town? Did Kavinsky steal from a different magic forest when he was in Jersey? The only real progress toward Glendower came at the very end, and, as interesting as all these separate magical pieces are, I'm impatient to see more connections revealed.

Final Thoughts:
I enjoyed certain aspects of this story, but when I finished the book, it left a sour aftertaste. I will be carefully considering whether to read the next.
