I Am Grateful For: Wake by Lisa McMann

Wake by Lisa McMann

Wonderful first book to a great series! What I'm really grateful for with this book is that it showed me, as a writer, that you can write short sentences a paragraphs and tell a great story! If you've never read a book by Lisa McMann you know what I mean.  She writes these really short sentences and paragraphs but they work so well! That's a bit more my style of writing, so I loved seeing that someone wrote that way and was published. 

For seventeen-year-old Janie, getting sucked into other people's dreams is getting old. 
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 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 is more than a witness to someone else's twisted psyche. She is a participant.


  1. Wow. That is a great premise for a book. I will have to check this one out.

  2. YES! I love McMann's minimalist style! So gripping, yet conveys so much!
