Review - Wake by Lisa McMann on Kindle


For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams, the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams, and the sex-crazed dreams. Janie's seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime.She can't tell anybody about what she does -- they'd never believe her, or worse, they'd think she's a freak. So Janie lives on the fringe, cursed with an ability she doesn't want and can't control.Then she falls into a gruesome nightmare, one that chills her to the bone. For the first time, Janie is more than a witness to someone else's twisted psyche. She is a participant....

My Review

I was pleasantly surprised and can say I loved this book. Can you imagine having a secret like being a dream catcher, WOW. Even though I loved the idea of that power, talk about great entertainment but poor Janie does not understand what is going on and also passes out from the dreams and or nightmares. I hope she embraces her power in the following books, we will see.
Janie feels like a freak so she keeps it a secret.

Can you imagine seeing dreams that your best friend, mom, boyfriend, and even school teachers are having. OMG

I will not go into further but if you are intrigued you should totally pick this one up. This was the first time for me to read something and immediately want to read the next. This series, Wake, Fade and Gone will definitely get read this year for me. Loved it!
The only reason why I am not giving it 5 stars is because I would have liked more details of the dreams.

4 ½ stars

Here are the covers of the whole series. Gone comes out February 9th.
