Fade by Lisa McMann

For Janie and Cabel, real life is getting tougher than the dreams. They're just trying to carve out a little (secret) time together, but no such luck.

Disturbing things are happening at Fieldridge High, yet nobody's talking. When Janie taps into a classmate's violent nightmares, the case finally breaks open--but nothing goes as planned. Not even close. Janie's in way over her head, and Cabe's shocking behavior has grave consequences for them both.
Worse yet, Janie learns the truth about herself and her ability. And it's bleak. Seriously, brutally bleak. Not only is her fate as a Dream Catcher sealed, but what's to come is way darker than she'd even feared...

I love this book! This one is my favorite of the two! Although Gone hasen't came out yet so who knows. Anyways, Fade is really really good! Cabe and Janie are still together which i love them two as a couple! Now that there working together. Also, Janie helping when she thought this was a curse and she is actually helping people. I love the way this book is written! Also, how we learn about Miss Stubin throughout the book. And what it was like for her to be a Dream Catcher! I can't wait until the next book. Sorry i toke me so long to blog about it! If you liked Wake this is a MUST to read!

Wake by Lisa McMann

For seventeen-year old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams is getting old. Especially the falling drea,s, 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 dosen'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 am probably the last person to review these next three books! I am getting there :) Okay well I love this book. I can't wait for the third one Gone to come out! This book was excellent. My favorite was the Janies dreams cause you can like picture whats going on in your head and see whats going on. I LOVE CABE! He stays with Janie having no idea what is happening and helps her. Although he does ignore her for awhile that part i didnt like. Overall i loved this book and is a good book for everyone to read.

Graceling by Kristin Cashore

His eyes, Kasta had never seen such eyes. One was silver, the other, gold. They glowed in his sun-darkened face, uneven, and strange. She was surprised that they hadn't shone in the darkness of their first meeting. They didn't seem human....
Then he raised his eyebrows a hair, and his mouth shifted into the hint of a smirk. He nodded at her, just barely, and it released her from her spell.
Cocky, she thought. Cocky and arrogant, this one, and that was all there was to make of him. Whatever game he was playing, if he expected her to join him would be disappointed.
In a world where people born with an extreme skill-called a Grace0 are feared and exploited Kasta carries the burden of a skill even she despises: the Grace of killing. She lives under the command of her uncle Randa, King of the Middluns, and is expected to execute his dirty work, punishing and torturing anyone who displeases him.
When she first meets Prince Po, who is Graced with combat skills, Kasta has no hint of how her life is about to change.
She never expects to become Po's friend.
She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace- or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away... a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.
Oh my lord, I absolutely loved this book. Kasta was my favorite cause she didn't want to be a mean person but had to deal with it everyday. When she finally stood up for herself and refused. At first i didn't understand what was happening to Po but after you read a little more then it made sense. This book is now one of my favorites. I liked the way that people have all different kinds of Graces like how we have talents. Some were useful and some were really not. I would recommend this book for everyone once again!
