DNF Review: Awake

I received a copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

Of course, the dress was white. This is what I’m supposed to die in, I thought. Not many people knew what their last outfit would be.
I pulled it over my head. It fit me perfectly. It had long, loose fitting sleeves, a modest neckline, and waves of material on the skirt. I hated it.
There were no shoes, and I was afraid I’d have to run through the forest barefoot but there weren’t a lot of options. Besides, I’d run barefoot over a bed of nails to get away.
“Scarlett, are you ready?” he called.
I looked in the mirror and took a deep breath. Time to fight for my life.

Scarlett Garner doesn’t remember anything before the age of four—until a car accident changes everything. She starts to remember pieces of a past that frighten her. A past her parents hid from her…and a secret that could get her killed.


I tried….I really tried but I just couldn’t do it. In the first chapter alone I was like “oh hell no you didn’t!”. It was insta-love followed by “I have no memories before the age of 4”. Who remembers their life before the age of 10?! I can’t…not really. All I can remember are snapshots of my life and stories. I bet if you took a poll 95% of the people would say they have no memories before the age of 5 at the latest! Who really cares that you can’t remember!? It just doesn’t make any sense. I couldn’t get past the third chapter and though some people really liked it the lack of common sense made me dislike this book a LOT!

Sorry….not sorry. :/
