Eighteen-year-old Brie O’Mara has so much going for her: a loving family in the sidelines, an heiress for a roommate, and dreams that might just come true. Big dreams--of going to acting school, finishing college and making a name for herself. She is about to be the envy of everyone she knew. What more could she hope for? Except her dreams are about to lead her down the road to nightmares. Nightmares that could turn into a deadly reality.
Dead Dreams, Book 1, a young contemporary adult psychological thriller and mystery.
"If you look close, you might see our scars. We don't hide them. Like the broken seashells I once loved to collect, what marks is what makes us who we are."
Dead Dreams was an intense, heart-racing thriller. I didn't expect it to be that twisted and intriguing. But the characters and the plot were absolutely wonderful and well-written. I will definitely be reading the next book.
Holy crap. I even forgot for a while that I signed up for this blog tour until I looked through my e-mail and schedule. But Jesus Christ, I finished this book in one whole day even after ditching it for awhile due to my daughter duties.
But, damn. The book wasn't that long, which made it better since books that are too prolonged just piss me off. But this one was simple, short but with a whole lot of content.
Now, I have to say first that I can't even use quotes from this book because well, if I did, then I'd be spoiling the whole ~mysterious aura~ going on.
But I'll give a description of each of the characters.
So first there's the young Brie O'Mara. Brie has a long-lost love, Drew, but no, he doesn't show up in this book. I like how it focused solely on her character and how she develops and her reactions to whatever was going on. She was an independent character, which made me like her, albeit a bit reckless, but she was cool. She was thoughtful but she also thought about herself and not those too goody two shoes type.
And then there's Sarah, her mysterious new roommates who seems to have more secrets than the government. Sarah's running but Brie has no idea from what. Not to mention the lies that keep piling up as the story develops. Brie doesn't know whether or not to trust Sarah, especially when she has a diabolical, crazy-ass plan in mind that could throw them both in jail.
The story was so damn good. It was crazy. Like really intense. Some chapters, the author ended with these creepy one-lines. Like for example (IDK IF THIS COUNTS AS A SPOILER BUT DON'T READ IF YOU DON'T WANT TO RISK IT):
"That was the last I spoke with Jim."Basically, Brie talks to Jim and then that was the end of the freaking chapter. THE END. GOD DAMMIT. I was like screaming at this and that was scary as hell.
But hot damn. This story was so damn good. This was my reaction throughout the whole book:
And at the end (yes it was a cliffy), I was shrieking. I had kept going and going to see the end of it. To see how it all unravels. But damn.
To Be continued in Book 2. Out Mid 2014.And so ladies and gentlemen,
But if you're a fan of cool, intense, suspenseful books, then definitely try this out! ;)
