Waiting on Wednesday: Dream On

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine and is a fun way to see what books other bloggers just can't wait to get their hands on!


The Silver Trilogy #2
Kerstin Gier
Paranormal Young Adult
Releases May 2016 from Henry Holt BFYR

From Edelweiss:

Things seem to be going well for Liv Silver: she's adjusting to her new home (and her new family) in London; she has a burgeoning romance with Henry Harper, one of the cutest boys in school; and the girl who's been turning her dreams into nightmares, Anabel, is now locked up. But serenity doesn't last for long.

It seems that Liv's troubles are far from over--in fact, suddenly they're piling up. School gossip blogger Secrecy knows all of Liv's most intimate secrets, Henry might be hiding something from her, and at night Liv senses a dark presence following her through the corridors of the dream world. Does someone have a score to settle with Liv?

Romance, adventure, and danger abound in Dream On, the second book in the Silver Trilogy.

I thoroughly enjoyed last year's Dream a Little Dream and Kerstin's Ruby Red trilogy before it, so I'm really looking forward to this second installment. One of my favorite thing about Kerstin's books is her sense of humor, something a bit unexpected since all of her books are translated from I believe the original German, but her snarky sense of humor is present and accounted for in this series and she always makes me smile with her characters.

Those of you who read this blog with any frequency know I don't care for stories where one romantic partner is keeping secrets from the other, it causes me stress, but Kerstin's books tend to be lower-key on the relationship angst (it's still present, but it's never the kind that makes you want to beat your head against a wall) so I'm not too worried about it. So ready for May!

  3. I haven't read this one yet, but I might give it a try when the last book comes out!
    These covers are so pretty. If you can tolerate the romance, then I think I should be fine too, hopefully! :)

    1. I'm only mildly concerned about it in this second book, her books are usually pretty low key on the relationship drama:) Shouldn't have any hair-pulling out moments!

  5. I definitely agree on the low romantic angst in Gier's books. I liked the cast of characters in this book and I'm curious as to where she will take her story next. I just hope it doesn't end in a cliffhanger.

    1. It causes me so much stress Jasprit! I don't think it will be an issue in this one though, usually her books are relatively angst-free:)

  10. I haven’t read this series; I tend to avoid books translated in English from other languages. English is not my first language as it is. But I glad to hear that you enjoyed this installment, Jenny. I like books with humor too.

    1. Secrets are the worst Melissa! At least between romantic partners. I can handle family secrets and what not.
