      Fifteen (The Dreamwalker Diaries Book 1) by Jen Estes is a very intense young adult fantasy novel but one that adults will love too! It is so well done, and it keeps you on your toes. It is a nail biter, a fantasy, touch of romance, time travel, and just plain awesome! Every fifteen years there is a Dreamwalker, and lucky for our gal of the story, she is it. She is to save the world basically. It is soooo exciting. The plot is well thought out and the characters very well developed. I was going [...]

      3 STARSSome things I quite enjoyed and other things annoyed me. I admit it was a page turner for me.I know some people can't stand time travel books, but I'm sort of addicted to them. In this case, I enjoyed the somewhat "Groundhog Day" way Ash was reliving the dream/future until she got it right. Except in this case, she proceeds a little further each time.The book starts almost immediately in Ash's recurring dream of her future execution. What I initially thought was instalove, I was able to f [...]

Keeping a journal and with the help of her best friend Tate, Ashling tries to discover the cause of these nightmares.Ashling volunteers for a dream study and is given [...]

      REVIEW: FIFTEEN by Jen EstesFIFTEEN is an absorbing YA novel, with a delightfully self-deprecating heroine who lives in two different time frames: her ordinary fifteen-year-old self in Billings, Montana; and her life (and death) fifteen years into the future, same place, different time, different everything. Fifteen years on is a dystopia, in which humans are third-class and ruled by a definitely "other" species. Ashling has a lifetime bestie, Tate, who despite being an adolescent male with a cr [...]

      This review and more posted at Tangled BookmarksI love time travel or parallel universe stories, so Fifteen by Jen Estes was right up my alley.Every night, Ash Campbell has the same recurring nightmare - she is being executed on a stage in front of a crowd of people in her hometown. By a monster that couldn't possibly exist.This was such a fun read. Ash discovers that if she controls her nightmare, she can change it. She is actually inhabiting her future 30 year old self, and being that she is a [...]

      I am reviewing this book on behalf of katsindiebookblog. I was given a great opportunity to read this book and enjoyed it every minute. Even though I'm in my mid 30's does not mean I don't read YA's. I actually tend to enjoy them more so than other books out there. This happens to be one of them. Jen has a way of putting you in the story as you read it. It kept you on your toes and wondering what is going to happen next. If it wasn't for having to help around the house with the kids I would have [...]

      Curiosity Quills recently offered me the opportunity to read FIFTEEN by Jen Estes in exchange for an honest review. After reading the back cover blurb, I decided to take a chance on it as the premise really captured my attention.I'm really torn over this book. Part of me really, really loved it and the other part of me only liked it.I thought the beginning started out kind of slow and I was wondering when the story would pick up. It didn't take long before the first 'dream' sequence, and boy, di [...]

      (I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).(This review may contain spoilers).First of all, I’d like to say that I absolutely loved the front cover. When I saw it for the first time, I was immediately drawn in… and the blurb of the book just made me want to read it even more.I did really like Ash as a character. I was pulled into the book fairly quickly and she was a character I could really relate to. I was also drawn into the future timeline really easily. The group of [...]

      I was gifted this book as part of the Release Tour check out facebook/Katsindiebookblog on Jan 15 2015 for the full release post.If you like Books that keep you on your toes until the end then this is a book to read - It maybe YA but I think any reader who likes a suspenseful plot will enjoy reading this book. This book is well written, the plot runs smoothly, giving you enough information to grasp what is happening, but not giving too much away so you figure out what's happening before you shou [...]

      ✯✯4 Flying High Stars!!✯✯Once I sat down and started reading this book, I couldn't put it down!! It reminded me of that movie with Ashton Kutcher calledThe Butterfly Effect. It's where when he reads his journals he can go back in time and change things and wakes up to a completely different future. Yup,Fifteenis like that.For the past three months 15yr old Ashling AKA Ash tries everything not to go to sleep. Because, when she falls asleep she's fast forward 15yrs. Now, she's 30yrs old an [...]

      Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes Ash has a repetitive dream and it's not a nice one. Fifteen years from now she's to be executed and thrown in front of a hideous monster. But, as in Groundhog Day, she's able to change some small details every day that will eventually lead to massive changes. I was immediately intrigued when I first heard about the book. It really sounded like something I'd like. And I did like it, but perhaps not as much as I thought I would. The premise is fantastic [...]

      This book is very good. In this book, a 15 years old girl falls asleep and then she is in her 30 year old body. This author did a great job with this book. I was mesmerized! I was not sure what was going to happen next or what happened to the town in this book. So many questions this book start you off with and then hands you many answers along the way. * I received this book from netgalley in exchange for an honest review*

      Review by Cassie for CDBW4 Crazy Stars!!!This was a good book. I thought the characters were very well written and I really liked Ash and Lavaughn. I found it creepy when the Jumlin ate Ash in her dreams. I can't wait to read the next book in the series because I want to find out what happens next with Ash and her dream walking.

    17. Rebecca McNutt on said:

      Fifteen offers a very intriguing and not often brought-up topic - the mysterious power of dreams and how dreams affect the real world. In this YA novel, a girl dreams of her own death and realizes that this is her future unless she can control it.

      My Thoughts On The Book:'Legend has it if you die in your dreams, you die in real life'Welcome to my spot on the Curiosity Quills' review tour for Jen Estes' Fifteen, the first book in her new The Dreamwalker Diaries. You check out the other blog's participating in this review tour HERE. The Plot Of The Story:Fifteen is a book with a very interesting and quite unique idea behind I which I will try to explain during the course of this review although I will say that it's a tough book to explain i [...]

    21. Samantha on said:

      Verdict: Witty and imaginative time-travelling story for teens.I really loved this book. I’ve already recommended it onwards! The writing is clever and the pacing is fast. I felt the charm from chapter one and just knew I was in for something special. Every time Ash falls asleep, she lives in her future self and must learn how to change the present in order to stop the future from being so messed up by a Lakota legend monster. It sounds a bit wordy when I explain it, but Estes does a fantastic [...]

      Have you ever died in your dreams? Or maybe had a dream where it felt real when you woke up? I have had a few dreams where it felt like I was actually hugging the person who was in my dream. Or I ate that piece of food I wouldn’t normally eat in real life but did in my dreams and decided hey! let me give it a try. You have a favorite number right? Do you apply this to certain things? Like combinations or play it when it comes to the lotto? Have you thought about where you would be in that many [...]

    23. Chelsea on said:

      Fifteen starts out a little slowly - Ash is trying to resist falling asleep for as long as possible so she can put off the inevitable nightmare. I picked the book up three times and read the first page or so, up to the start of the dream, before abandoning it. And then one day, I knew I had to honour my commitment to review Fifteen so I made myself keep going, keep reading through that first dream. And holy crow, it's a doozy!Fifteen has a surprising intensity to it. There's nothing superficial [...]

      Fifteen is a young adult paranormal written by Jen Estes and published through Curiosity Quills Press. It was released just yesterday in fact!The book is the first in the series. I prefer to read in sequential order and I don't think I would understand this series if I didn't read this book first. That said, it is the only one out in the moment. It's just that the amount of information and moments makes me think reading this book first will be integral for the rest of the series,Jen Estes weaves [...]

    25. Fidah on said:

      Fifteen is a young adult novel that has a really interesting premise. With Ash's abilities, we're being sent back and forth between the present and future which is rather cool yet frightening at the same time. Especially when the future is set in a world you didn't quite expect and it is rather scary and tragic. I really liked the world building that Jen Estes has done. She has definitely done her research with the addition of Lakota legends. I've never heard of it before and it was really inter [...]

      Got a copy from Netgalley. Well, do you know what I hate about time traveling? Time traveling. Sometimes, you have to draw charts, and things get very complicated when you have to draw stuff. Lots of stuff. Because timelines shift and go crazy. Especially when the character is in the present and messing up everything in the future.Things go berserk. And time muddles. It is like Flash's time paradox all over again. Though this time, things are a bit more complicated. There is a demon involved, an [...]

      Everyone knows that if you die in your dreams you’ll die in real life. Well, Ashling Campbell doesn’t – she lives to die again every time she closes her eyes. At first she watches her future self die from a distance, but soon she’s experiencing it first hand in all the myriad ways her dream self can die in a future taken over by alien beings. She realizes she’s not just dreaming though as things she does in the waking world begin changing her dreamscape and she has to use her astral pr [...]

      Wow. Just sped through this book and want more. I don't think the ending was a cliff-hanger, yet the title says (#1), so I have hopes that I get to see more of Skylar, Tate, Coop and of course, Ash. Preferably not Nadette, but she's the character you just love to hate!The beginning of this book was SUPER scary. At least to lil ole' chicken poo me it was. I don't want to get into spoiler territory, so I'll just say it was scary and that the reader and Ash figure out what is going on at the same t [...]

      I received this book from Curiosity Quills in return for a fair and honest review.Although I generally enjoy reading Young Adult books, when I read that the main female in this was Fifteen well, most of the time anyway I was a bit dubious on how this book would develop. I really shouldn't have worried myself. This book will instantly grab your interest and not let go until you finish the last word of the last sentence. Even then, your brain will be ticking over as you think on what you've read.T [...]
