I so should not have started this book at 11pm last night. I had just finished Evermore and this was the next one on my pile, so innocently enough I picked it up, thinking I would read for maybe thirty more minutes. Well, needless to say, two hours later, I had to force myself to go to sleep with just about fifty pages left to read. It was sheer torture.
I know that all the other YA bloggers out there raved about this book, so I knew I would at least like it. I loved it though. It grabbed my attention from page one and kept me reading, and reading....and reading.
Here's the description for those who don't know:
Not all dreams are sweet.
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....
Janie and Cabel are great characters, who I couldn't help cheering for. They both face challenges and yet find the strength to go on. It's a great read and the start to a great series.
I'll be picking up Fade tomorrow at work and I'll have to force myself not to start it right away, after all, I do have homework. And Friday the 13th comes out this weekend, so I have things to do. I can't read all the time. Just most of the time.
