It’s the best time of the year! This is the THIRD annual recap of all the independently-published books I’ve read. I like to take this time to share the love–both by helping promote great indie books and giving them away! So without further ado…
On the fourth day of Indie-Mas, my author gave to me:
A Dreamy Love Story…Literally
The Girl In-Between has been on my TBR for quite some time, but I never quite got around to reading it. Finally, I did, and I’m really glad.
Bryn is a girl with a disease called KDS which causes her to go into a coma every few weeks. In those dream states, she revisits her past memories by herself, until one day, a boy shows up. He can’t remember who he is or why he’s in her dream world. But he’s there. And so is a shadow.
The relationship between Bryn and her mystery man is really what kept me reading. It’s a slow burn-type romance, filled with mystery and discovery. Along the way are your typical “Ron-and-Hermione” type friends, a shitty boyfriend, and a family that brings more life to the book.
This is a four-book complete series, so definitely one you’ll want to binge.
Bryn Reyes is a real life sleeping beauty. Afflicted with Klein-Levin Syndrome, she suffers episodes of prolonged sleep that steal weeks, and sometimes even months, from her life. But unlike most KLS patients, she doesn’t spend each episode in a catatonic state or wake up with no recollection of the time she’s missed. Instead, Bryn spends half her life in an alternate reality made up of her memories. For Bryn, the past is a place, until one day a boy she’s never met before washes up on the illusory beach of her dreams with no memory of who he is.
But the appearance of this strange boy isn’t the only thing that’s changed. Bryn’s symptoms are worsening, her body weakening as she’s plagued by hallucinations even while awake. Her only hope of finding a cure is to undergo experimental treatment created by a German specialist. But when Dr. Banz reveals that he knows more about her strange symptoms than he originally let on, Bryn learns that the boy in her head might actually be the key to understanding what’s happening to her, and worse, that if she doesn’t find out his identity before it’s too late, they both may not survive.
