#BookReview: Dream Me by Kathryn Berla

 
Zat is a dreamer from the distant future—a time when humans no longer dream and Earth is a desolate wasteland. He dreams of the beautiful Earth of the past, and a fiery-haired beauty named Babe. Against the wisdom of his peers, Zat decides to risk everything to travel back in time and live in Babe’s dreams…

Babe is the perpetual new girl in town. Her father's job frequently moves the family around the country, and Babe just longs for a place to call home. As she settles into the sleepy town of Sugar Dunes, Florida, Babe begins to have strange dreams of a green-eyed boy named Zat. Night after night, Babe shows Zat her world. But the dreams come at the cost of nearly crippling migraines every morning. Babe’s life outside of her dreams pales in comparison to her growing love for Zat and their time spent together.

But the more time Babe and Zat spend together in her dreams, the more Babe’s pain increases, and Zat begins to question the reality of his existence. How can he live a life with Babe, when all they have is her dreams? 

Can a dream become a reality?





Kathryn Berla is the author of La Casa 758 (Penguin Random House, Spain) and the YA romance, 12 Hours in ParadiseThe House at 758, an English translation of La Casa 758, will be released by Amberjack Publishing October 2017.
Kathryn loves to write about whatever happens to float through her mind and lingers long enough to become an obsession. Her interests vary; hence, her genres range from sci-fi to horror to contemporary literary fiction. As a State Department brat, Kathryn grew up in India, Syria, Europe, and Africa, and the love of seeing new places still runs deep. 
Kathryn graduated from the University of California in Berkeley with a degree in English, but she takes the most pride in having studied creative writing under Walter van Tilburg Clark at the University of Nevada. She likes to brag that she had the same translator in Spain as John Green.
She currently lives in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area. She lives with her three sons and husband, who are her most constant muses, sounding boards, and general cheerleaders and critics. They normally don’t complain too much about these enforced roles.



I really don't know what to say about this one. The plot sounded interesting but the execution of it just didn't work out for me.  The world building seemed under-developed and the characters were just kinda meh.  I was so excited to get this one.  The insta-love didn't help this issue at all.  When the side-MC decided to travel back into the past to live in the dreams of the main-MC he was already in love with her. ugh.  I just have no words for how much this one didn't work out for me.
