    And what, exactly, will they be doing? Well, in a few short days, they’ll be laying us out in a lab, fitting our heads with electrodes, and running electrical currents through our brains until our insomnia is fried into extinction. They’ll be shocking us into normalcy.Yes, I’m scared. But if this is what I have to do to be able to sleep again, I’m ready to sign my life away. I had to push myself to keep reading. This one almost ended up o...

    (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.) “A chill goes through me when I understand what he said. The clowns.” 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 m...

    *3.5/5 stars* “Yes, I’m scared. But if this is what I have to do to be able to sleep again, I’m ready to sign my life away.” Dreamfall 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, i...

    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 del...

    2.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2017/08/19/...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...

    Dreamfall is the first book in a new YA duology by author Amy PlumI am not sure what genre the book is. I've seen it listed as YA horror, YA fantasy, YA science fiction and I've also seen it referred to as a psychological thriller. IMO it is not science fiction, fantasy or a psychological thriller. I guess it could be YA horror. The book starts off feeling like our world. The only difference being the experiment and the severe insomnia experience...
  • Shannon (It Starts At Midnight)
    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight This was interesting. I went from "hmm I am not sure about this" to "need book two NOW, please and thank you" pretty quickly. It was a slow start- and kind of weird, if I am being honest. I also wasn't sure about the likelihood that parents would sign their kids up for this with it being so unknown, but I guess if you're desperate... I ce...
