Review: Wake (Dream Catcher #1) by Lisa McMann

Title: Wake (Dream Catcher #1)
Author: Lisa McMann
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Date Published: March 4th 2008
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
My Rating: 

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…

I bought this book because the theme sounded really interesting, I mean can you imagine going into everyone else's dreams? I thought the idea of being able to do something like that would be exciting, then after reading the book I realized maybe it really isn't that great, it is bad enough having my own nightmares, no way I would want other's as well.

Okay yes I liked it BUT in a way I expected a lot more from this story. It's really hard to explain when i don't even know exactly what it is that I expected. It doesn't mean I was disappointed though! Maybe I just have to keep reading the rest of them and can make up for what I didn't mention in this really short "review".

I read this book not that long ago and the truth is that I can't remember that much about it besides the important events. I will post something else about it if anything else comes up in my head. For this I apologize!

P.S. read this book before I even started blogging, point being, I am trying to blog as I finish reading my books so I won't forget anything important that i should mention! :D


  1. I bought the book for the same reasons, but still haven't read it. I'm sorry to hear you didn't like it! It's so important for books to impact the reader and it sucks that this one left you forgetting about it shortly after! Great, honest review! :D

  2. I am glad you understand about that missing impact but i did enjoy it in a way. You should read it, maybe it will be different for you :)
