Recommended to Barbi Faye (The Book Fae) by: Buttercup the Dog
Another Riley Bloom sweet story, and it is uniquely different. Finding herself with time for R&R, Riley’s at loose ends, having not made friends yet; seeing her family fitting in and busy. She is certainly experiencing that the afterlife seems a lonely place when all you do is work. She goes to Dreamland, wanting to contact her sister, Ever. She meets Balthazar, the director, who tells her about the two ways to send dreams, by Dream Jumping.

I feel bad for Riley Bloom. She died when she was twelve, and all she ever wanted was to be a teenager like her big sister, Ever. She feels awkward and uncomfortable in her skin. She finally crossed over to Here & Now, but she fears she will be twelve forever. She's been training as a Soul Catcher, and other than having a difficult time following the rules, she's been doing quite well. She, and her trainer, Bohdi, have been told they can have a vacation. Feeling lost, because she has no frie ...more

Πήρα να διαβάσω το 3ο βιβλίο της σειράς της Ράιλι Μπλουμ σε ένα σύντομο ταξίδι μου, να μου κρατήσουν συντροφιά η μεγάλη γραμματοσειρά και οι ο ευκολοδιάβαστος τρόπος γραφής της Άλισον Νόελ. Όμως και πάλι η σειρά με απογοήτευσε. Τόσο που καθυστέρησα υπερβολικά για το μέγεθός του να το τελειώσω ενώ είχα ήδη επιστρέψει.

Τι δε μου άρεσε:
1. Το πως η πρωταγωνίστρια είναι μονίμως στεναχωρημένη με ότι της συνέβη.
2. Το όλο "ψυχοπλακωτικό" κλίμα, ενώ ο κόσμος που έχει δημιουργήσει η συγγραφέας μπορεί να π

The reason I read Dreamland was because it was the next book in the Riley Bloom series and I had read the previous book in the series. I enjoyed the first book and wanted to read more about riley. The books a quite small so I had to read more than one book.

I've decided that this book comes under the category of fantasy. I thought this because it is about something that doesn't exist or hasn't been experienced by a human. It could potentially be real but no one living could know because only the

This is the third book in the Riley Bloom series and once again Riley finds trouble, this time in Dreamland. There is a wonderful cast of characters in this novel, including director of dream jumping, Balthazar, a former Hollywood director of numerous box office hits. He puts on fabulous productions to enhance the dreams of those of us still alive, giving hope and comfort and also allowing departed loved ones the opportunity to communicate a special message to their loved ones left behind on ear ...more

Dreamland gets personal when Riley goes looking for the land of dreams to contact her sister who is the only family she had left after the accident. She hears news about how her sister still blames herself and is still grieving the loss and that's why she needs to contact her, despite Bodhi's warning that she should not do this.

In Dreamland she meets a ghost boy who has been terrorizing people by sending them nightmares because he seems them as guilty in their own misery, he even says to Riley t

well aku baca buku ini dari seri ke tiga nya dulu -_- soalnya pertama tertarik itu ya sama dreamland, jadi belinya dreamland deh, ga radiance atau shimmer.
Yang pasti tokoh utamanya itu Riley Bloom. Ditemani dengan anjingnya Buttercup, dan pembimbing Riley yaitu Bodhi. Ada juga tokoh lain seperti Ever, Satchel, Balthazar, Mort, dll.
Buku ini unik, karena yang diceritain tuh tokohnya udah mati, dan Noel membuat dunia baru aka Di Sini & Kini. Tapi menurut aku sih kurang konfliknya, jadi kurang

I can't stand Riley's character. She is a selfish, entitled, insufferable BRAT (your typical millennial - guess I have to give the author credit for at least nailing that!). But, now that I'm only one more book away from finishing the series, I feel compelled to finish it to see how it ends.

Als ihr im "Aussichtsraum", der Raum der dazu dient einen Blick auf die "zurückgebliebenen" Verwandten und Freunde auf der Erde zu werfen, ein alter Mann von einem Ort erzählt, an dem man über Träume Nachrichten auf die Erde versenden kann, ist sie natürlich sofort Feuer und Flamme und versucht diesen Ort zu finden.

Après avoir été séduite par les tome 1 et 2, c’est avec beaucoup de plaisir que je me suis plongé dans ce troisième opus pour connaître la suite des aventures de Riley. La couverture est, comme toujours chez Michel Lafon, absolument magnifique et fait vraiment rêver. La quatrième de couverture laisse présager une histoire des plus intéressante et j’avais vraiment très hâte de découvrir cette Fabrique à rêve.

Everyone seems to be getting on with their afterlives except Riley Bloom. She’s lonely. And now that the Council has asked her to take some time off from Soul Catching, she doesn’t quite know what to do with herself.

So when she learns that there’s a way she can visit her sister, Ever, in dreams, she jumps at the chance, literally. But when dream jumping doesn’t prove immediately successful, she is frustrated.

Not being one who is too easily discouraged, when she meets a boy who hints that dream j

Είναι γνωστό σε όλους όσους διαβάζουν την σελίδα μου, πως αγαπώ την Alyson Noel καθώς την θεωρώ μια πολύ ειλικρινή και ιδιαίτερη συγγραφέα, τόσο ως προς τον τρόπο γραφή της, όσο και ως προς τις ιδέες της και το πως τις αξιοποιεί στο χαρτί. Η σειρά της "Ράιλι Μπλουμ", που ακολούθησε αυτή των "Αθανάτων", ανήκει στην παιδική-νεανική λογοτεχνία και ως εκ τούτου, δεν μπορεί να συγκινήσει το ενήλικο κοινό στο οποίο και ανήκω. Παρ' όλα ταύτα, δεν μπορώ να μην αναγνωρίσω πως για το είδος του, και για το ...more

I haven't reviewed the other books in this series, but as I have WHISPER from Macmillan to review, I thought I would also write one for DREAMLAND.

I became a fan of Alyson Noel when I first came across The Immortals Series. I was hooked on them from Evermore and was really sad when I got to the end of Everlasting, knowing that this was the end for the series.

When I first heard of her intention to write a spin-off series, I knew I would have to read those books. I was so happy when Radiance (Rile

This was an oddly fast read for me. I just finished up a book by Jodi Picoult, and I was looking around on my shelf for what to read next. I have three books way overdue from the library, and this happened to be one of them. It being a small read, is what made me decide to pick it up. Figured it wouldn't take too long to get through, and man was I right! This author is the same one that created the Immortal Series. The Riley Bloom series is a spin off, starring the sister of the Immortal's main

Life is perhaps ever more confusing for Riley than it has ever been, especially considering the fact that the council of the here and now have congratulated her for what she has managed to do, and no other soul catcher has. Yet they have also requested that she goes on a break, when she has just been on one so that she can be given more complicated tasks to meet her personality. However Riley takes this as dismissal especially when it seems like Bodhi really does dislike her and moves on to the ...more

Dreamland is another fabulous read. Alyson Noel is one of the best writers around these days and knows how to keep her readers get lost in the book and unable to put it down.

It's all happening in book three, and after completing a task that she was not assigned to in the last book she is told that she has to take a break from Soul Catching for a while but because Riley's 'glow' has changed she thinks she can handle harder jobs and once again Riley finds herself in trouble again but it is good to
