    1. The plot because its so freaking awesome!!!

    2. The different psychological illnesses and conditions used by the author to make the different characters' personality.

    3. How the author combined realism and fantasy. Trust me only few can managed to create a novel and this book managed to combine the two and ends up to being great

    4. The freaking plot twist people! It was very unexpected and jaw dropping!

    5. Its creepy, weird and surrealistic. But sooo sooo good!!!

    I honestly adored this book. It was very informative, imaginative and just... brilliant. Honestly, I'm great in guessing about what's gonna happen next or what plot twist will happen. But this book... I don't really know what will happen. I didn't have a single clue about what will happen in every chapter, its like I'm totally blindsided; and that people, is the reason I absolutely loved this book!

    Every scene will take you by surprise, it will make you guess what will happen next then once you've think of a possible explanation, it will shock you because it'll turn out to be wrong and you'll realize that there is more than meets the eye. OMG!!!

    Reading this thrilled, shocked, intrigued, and left me wondering what the fuck is going to happen next. It was a cliffhanger but it still worth the wait...

    For the readers who loves horror, mystery, psychological, and twisted books, this one is for you... TRUST ME!!!!!

    I have always been a fan of Amy's words, so I was pretty excited to get my hands on this one. Added bonus for it being creepy.

    There are a good amount of characters, but we only get the POV from 3: two patients in the experiment and one pre-med student observing. And between the three of them, we get quite a story.

    There's not much I can say without spoilers, so just know that it's imaginative and eerie and maybe scary for some and absolutely delicious. I wish I had book 2 in my hands right now.

    This was a YA fantasy story, about a group of insomniac teens caught in a shared nightmare world.

    This was a YA fantasy story, about a group of insomniac teens caught in a shared nightmare world.

    I liked the characters in this, they all made the best of things, had their own coping strategies, and didn’t give up, even in the worst of circumstances. I also liked how we learned more about them as the book went on, and that there were twists in store as information about the teens was revealed.

    The storyline in this was about seven teens taking part in an experiment to cure their insomnia. During the experiment, which used ECT (Electroconvulsive Therapy), there was an earthquake which interrupted the electrical supply, sending the teens into what the doctors thought was a coma. However, the teens all found themselves thrust into a group dream, where they were forced to battle their way through their nightmares together. I did like the action in this book, and I also liked how we had Jaime back in the lab letting us know what was going on outside of the dream world. I thought that the nightmares were quite creepy, and I wouldn’t have wanted to battle through them myself.

    The ending to this didn’t really tie much up, so it will be interesting to see what happens in the next book.

    was actually pretty intriguing read. I liked the idea of this story - Seven subjects suffering from insomnia for different reasons and traumas are being tested for a cure, but... The lab equipment malfunctions and they are all thrust into simultaneous coma and together joined in some kind of dream state, in their nightmares.

The lab equipment malfunctions and they are all thrust into simultaneous coma and together joined in some kind of dream state, in their nightmares.

    The concept of

    was very intriguing one, but it didn't entirely live up to it. While this book was quite captivating read overall, it was also a bit boring at times, with some blank spaces and rather simple plotline going, for the most part, in circles.

    This book is told in first person from 3 POVs - Cata, Jaime and Fergus. Jaime's pov being outside of the dreams so we get to see some scienc-y explanations and what is actually happening in real world in the lab. I liked that all three POVs sounded distinctive from one another. While I enjoyed reading from all of the characters, no one truly stood out for me. They ended up being a bit flat and one dimensional. There simply wasn't enough characterization for any of the them, which was one of the reasons why I couldn't truly connect to the story.

    The other fact, though not necessarily a bad thing, was that there was no romance. Just a forewarning, because it was kind of breath of fresh air for me. The story is mainly centered around the nightmares and its adventures, lab and the characters as a group.

    has short chapters and is very easy and fast read. It was pretty enjoyable overall, but nothing especially stood out for me. I'd recommend this book if you want to read something entertaining but average set in (I guess) contemporary world with some science fiction elements, with no romance and a few creepy scenes.

    Fans of Plum's

    duology will definitely enjoy this one as well.

    I had to push myself to keep reading. This one almost ended up on the dreaded "DNF" list that I try to avoid if possible. I am happy I decided to keep reading if only for the twist at the end that becomes semi-predictable at a point, though I admit the dream sequences started to get skimmed because it was just so wtf and even bordered on repetitive as they'd fight to survive/escape. It felt like the same questions asked over and over as the characters would reiterate what we already knew. And as we get in a new dream, it starts all over.

    What was refreshing was Jaime's POV (one of only three). Jaime is a premed student observing the experiment. There is also Cata and Fergus, both subjects in the experimental procedure to cure sleep disorders. Jaime's perspective gives us the opportunity to see what is going on in the lab, while the seven subjects are all comatose. While Cata and Fergus allow us to see two different perspectives within the dreamworld. The only problem with these two is their voices don't feel distinct from one another. We don't know a lot about the characters to start - only that the seven subjects have sleep disorders and fall between the ages 13-19. Through their experiences in the dreamworld and Jaime's in the lab where Jaime has access to each subject's file, we slowly learn about the characters.

    There is a diverse cast. And Jaime's gender is not mentioned at all. I applaud the author on this decision. I actually hope it never gets brought up because gender shouldn't hold that importance. It is who you are as a person, not what appendage you have between your legs.

    Here is the thing...I am a huge horror buff. So maybe I'm desensitized to certain horror scenes. But I didn't find myself scared one bit in this book and that's the main thing I was hoping for. It probably doesn't help that I've had some terrifying nightmares that these just don't measure up to. Younger readers may find scenes in the dream sequences to be frightening, but I wouldn't recommend going into this hoping for some scares. It might not happen for you.

    While this book offers a few very wonderful things, it wasn't exactly for me up until that twist at the end making me interested in the sequel. Jaime's chapters were the most interesting for me. This wasn't quite as

    as I was expecting.

    In Dreamfall, a group of teenagers are signed up for an experimental study that is supposed to help treat their individual sleep disorders, which range from chronic insomnia to debilitating night terrors. However, the equipment hooked up to the teens ends up malfunctioning during the trial and the seven of them fall into comas—or at least, that’s what it looks like to the researchers overseeing the project. In reality though, they’re all dreaming, trapped in one nightmare together. Worse, they’re being hunted by their deepest fears come to life, and in this dream you’ll never wake up if you die.

    Unfortunately, books like this one remind me of why most YA horror doesn’t work for me these days. As much as I wanted to like it because of its compelling blurb, Dreamfall reads like a made-for-TV movie complete with all the thriller clichés and teen drama archetypes. What makes this even more of a shame is that I sense a sincere attempt from the author to make her cast diverse, but none of it really matters in the end because most of the characters are so easily forgotten and expendable. The multi-narrator format that was intended to give us a well-rounded picture of everyone also meant the focus was diluted and no one stood out, and from there things went downhill. After all, I can’t bring myself to enjoy a story unless I first care about the people involved; without that as a basic foundation, everything else just becomes an empty experience.

    Still, I don’t want to make it sound like I hated the book, because at the very least the plot was fast-paced and fun. However, apart from maybe that twist ending, Dreamfall was entirely unmemorable. It’s only been a day since I finished the book and I’ve already forgotten half the characters’ names, so I very much doubt I’ll be continuing with this series despite things finally getting interesting in the last couple chapters. There are plenty more other books I need to get to on my YA shelf.
