Hello friends, welcome to The Dream Thieves reread post and this one contains spoilers FOR THE ENTIRE SERIES!! If you haven’t read the book yet, please exit this blog post unless you want to be massively spoiled. My spoiler free review is here!
blue refusing to kiss adam because of the prediction.. a w a k w a r d
adam is angsty; consistently angry and pissed at people/situations. he’s going through a myriad of adjustments and altercations in his life.
he’s finally taking charge by leaving his abusive family. i’m so happy for him yet he makes me angsty while he sort his feelings out. he refuses to accept help from his friends when they are doing it out of concern and not pity but he doesn’t see it like that.
ronan sneaky sneak for giving both gansey and adam the same aglionby letters.
Ronan sneered at him, but his pulse heaved. “Tell me then, Prophet.”
Noah said, “It’s not my job to tell other people’s secrets.”
& MAURA AND THE GRAY MAN’S GLANCING AT EACH OTHER. HOOOOO DANG. IT’S THE START OF SOMETHING NEW!
ronan’s nightmares. shit poor thing.
Quemadmodum gladius neminem occidit; occidentis telim est.
“A sword is never a killer; it is a tool in the killer’s hand.”
when ronan goes back to the Barn:
The only reality was this: He was home.
How badly he wanted to stay.
awwww ronannnnn. ronan knows how to check a mice’s heart, so precious. ronan. ❤
calla doing aerial yoga while they went to consult her. the pretty one: gansey, coca-cola shirt: adam, the snake: ronan.
matthew: .. i nearly shit myself!..
ronan: don’t fucking swear
I LOVE YOU RONAN
In some parallel universe, there was a Gansey who could tell Blue that he found the ten inches of her bare calves far more tantalising than the thirteen cubic feet of bare skin Orla spotted.
In a low voice, Blue asked meaningfully, “Seen enough?”
“Of – oh, Orla?”
“What care is it of yours,” he asked, “what I think of Orla?”
Crisp, she replied, “None at all.”
And it was a lie.
OMG PLEASE BE TOGETHER ALREADY!!
mr gray man actually is indirectly (saying this very vaguely) protecting the boys. he killed the two men who broke into monmouth manufacturing.
A tiny part of Gansey’s brain said: You have been staring for too long.
The larger part of his brain said: ORANGE.
But this version of Gansey was Gansey the boy. This was the Gansey who bought the Camaro, the Gansey who asked Ronan to teach him to fight, the Gansey who contained every wild spark so that it wouldn’t show up in other versions.
& the Gansey Adam wouldn’t like but like ronan, i love that i see this version of gansey.
does ronan like gansey? or is their bromance this intense?
“There was never a time when that could’ve been you and me. You know the difference between us and Kavinsky? We matter.”
“When I’m gone,” Gansey said, pausing, “dream me the world. Something new for every night.”
SHIT THIS BROMANCE
this blooming relationship right here:
Maura said, “I’m going to order for you.”
She waited to see if he would challenge her, but he just said, “I’m allergic to strawberries.”
“Six percent of the population is,” she noted.
He said, “I see where your daughter came from.”
She beamed at him. She had one of those lovely, open, perfect smiles, genuinely happy and very beautiful. The Gray Man thought, This is the worst decision I’ve ever met.
lol the three psychics don’t know how to answer the phone. i love them so much.
ronan dreamt of adam again yassss. & i love ronan’s tattoo.

‘The Raven King, make way for the Raven King.’
The Gansey in the mirror laughed humorlessly. “Ronan never took my car. He didn’t lie to me.”
^ UH.. AWKWARD MOMENT RIGHT HERE. next thing you know.. ronan crushes the car. oh no.
the fight between adam and gansey was warranted. adam had been keeping this inside him for ages and he has always felt inferior and small beside gansey in terms of his family background, finances, etc. i liked that he said that he got into aglionby without gansey’s help, he woke the ley line alone. true. but i didn’t like when he said that “i got blue without you”. it just didn’t sit right with me. i know he’s saying it as in blue was attracted to adam because he was adam not because gansey helped him in any way but it’s just isn’t something adam would’ve said.
okay so there’s this portion where kavinsky used his finger to trace ronan’s tattoo and i’m just like ” DOES HE LIKE HIM ???” what is going on guys tell me, please????
gray man giving maura a pink switchblade & daisy crown & his flopping heart is aesthetics!
Calla growled, “They are not nice boys. Well, at least one of them isn’t.”
“He’s not alone when he leaves the car behind.”
OMG WHEN, NOT IF.
“… Because it’s not going to be you.” she told him. i’m so sorry adam but yeah..
“They won’t understand,” Persephone said. She laid her deck of tarot cards on the table in front of him. “They didn’t when I came back.”
OMG PERSEPHONE. I NEED PERSEPHONE’S STORY. PLEASEEEEEEEEE
adam the magician! yas
She called Gansey.
“Blue?” he said.
Just his voice. Her heart tethered itself. Not completely, but enough to stop quivering so much. She closed her eyes.
“Take me somewhere?”
i LOVE THEM PLEASE GET TOGETHER
gansey understanding and learning from his experience is amazing. i liked that they’re talking about his past self: how he thinks being rich brings about everything, for someone to prosper. and now after meeting blue, he knows that not everything has a price tag.
“Jane, in this light,” he started. “you… Jesus. Jesus. I’ve got to get my head straight.”
omg my emotions are everywhereeeeeeee. fudge me heart.
THEY PRETENDED TO KISS!!! my heart is soaring~
that mother daughter moment between maura and blue is so genuine and precious.
At 300 Fox Way, Adam quietly turned eighteen.
WHAT WHY HOW IS THIS BRUSHED PAST.
i love persephone’s little moments. she’s always there but not really. she’s a mystery. actually, all of the psychics are, except for maybe maura since she’s blue’s mother and we sort of got her story.
“The Magician sees what is out there and finds connections. The Magician can make anything magical.”
the fire-breathing dragon and night horror scene was amazing. and i love that the mysterious language on the puzzle box is the language of the trees. HOW COOL IS THAT?!
now maura’s underground. things are going to get much more magical than it already is in blue lily, lily blue!
Hope you enjoyed this discussion post!
