Finished them!!

I made two new book covers for imaginary books. I really like them both. The first is my favorite. I just really loved the photo i found online. It looked amazing, the name was just pretty much my little touch to it. The second is also a really nice picture, glad i found them!

YA Syfy

Basic Rating: 3/5

Story line: 4/5

Characters: 3/5

Cover: 3/5

My Thoughts: I really liked this book. It was my first read of this type of book and i really enjoyed it. I extremely loved the story line, it was fantastic! And i loved the whole YA Science Fiction scene. The characters were great and i really grew fond of the main character Janie. I never grew tired of her and thought she was to dull or irritating, she was great! I loved how the story developed, but it was so different then what i had expected. But that was not a problem because how it turned out to be was just as great. The cover is also really cool and that was what made me pick up a copy. It really drew me in. The thing that i could seriously live without would be all of the swearing. Totally unnecessary and a bit to much for me. In reality i know people swear, but the swearing in the book was a bit over the top and made me shy away from the book at times. Didn't enjoy that part of the book. But i did really like how Lisa McMann created the book, how the chapters were written and how it was just mainly written. I had never ever read a book written like this and it was very cool. It wasn't like a diary or anything like that, but the chapters went under Days, Months, and Times. Loved it! And so i really can't wait to read the following book, Fade. Very excited to!

My Recommendation: For readers who really enjoy a good syfyish mystery and for fans of Lisa McMANN.

Plot: "Not all dreams are sweet.

For seventeen-year old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams is getting old. Especially the falling dreams and the naked-but-nobody-notices dreams. Janie's seen enough fantasy booty to last her a lifetime. She can't tell anybody about what she does - they'd never believer 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 experiences one of the worst nightmares ever. And before things get even worse she must try at least to control them.....before it begins to take over more of her life.
