Teaser Tuesday: The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater.

The Dream Thieves –
Scholastic Press

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.
— Prologue

“So what you’re saying is you can’t explain it.”
“I did explain it.”
“No, you used nouns and verbs together in a pleasing but illogical format.”
— Chapter 5

Since most of you are not from the same part of the world as I am ... at least that’s what statistics tell me ... most of you won’t understand the quote “Well, here we are again, old lovely ...”. It’s from a sketch that Germans traditionally watch on New Year’s Eve (called Dinner for One – ignore the man at the beginning and start at about 2:24). Anyway, end of the year and probably my last book this year is playing catch up to a series I must confess I slightly lost sight of. Despite reading trackers and publication lists, there were just too many other things I also wanted to read. So many books, so little time. I’m not too far into this yet, so I can’t say very much about it apart from that I really should start taking notes for books in a series to remember the details. But I’m certain that more will come to me while I read. And the plus side of not getting to this book immediately is that the next is also already available.

What is your final read of the year? Share teasers and New Year’s resolutions in the comments. Have a very good turn of the year and I’ll see you on the flipside.

Gosh...I'm trying to get three books done by the end of this year. Why do I do this to myself?
