      Sleepless(Bird of Stone #1)TraceyWard4.0/5.0Alex has a superpower, but not the kind you'd be excited to have. Shecan't control hers and it lands her all over the worldunpredicatably. She falls asleep in her bedroom wakes up in Paris,Ireland, Wrigley Field, or whatever other desitantion her powerchooses at the moment. However, it's not all bad. Her power is howshe meets Nick.Nick has a power too. He can't feel fear. It's great for his militarycareer sucks for his social skills. Their relationship [...]

      A huge thank you to author Tracey Ward for providing an e-copy of her book in exchange for an honest review.Sleepless took me by surprise. I'm not really sure what's going to happen based from the synopsis and it got me confused when I began. It was a mix of contemporary, sci-fi and paranormal romance. It's not in a bad way though, just a curious-I-want-to-catch-up-and-understand-everything way. I haven't read anything by the author, but this book's writing was engaging and nicely-written.Alex M [...]

      Pe pe. ¿Y ESE FINAL? Oh Dios mío, necesito el segundo yaaaaaaa. Esperaba que este libro me gustase, pero ¿tanto? Para nada. Los personajes me han encantado, tanto Alex como Nick. Y la pareja que hacen Diossssssssssssss. Lo mejor de todo que su amor no es instantáneo, ni se dicen te quiero a los dos días de conocerse o tienen "sentimientos que no sé explicar" o cosas así. Sino que la relación se da en un año. UN AÑO. LENTAMENTE. POR FAVOR, SÍ. Y Nick, juro que este hombre es aslkfhadih [...]

      *Also posted at Oops! I Read A Book Again*Thank you to Chyna of Lite-Rate-Ture Book Tours and to Tracey Ward for the review copy. This in no way affected my views of the novel.From the get-go, the unique premise and characters and the engaging writing grabbed me. I immediately felt that I was reading something great, probably a four-star read. We have our heroine Alex who ends up in places when she sleeps. Random forests or in Russia or anywhere. Then we have Nick, training to be a PJ in the Air [...]

      I would love to be able to write with this tone. So restrained but so intense at the same time. Have to admire an author who can make me actually enjoy the romance over the paranormal

      3.5 StarsFor the most part I enjoyed this book. During the first 80% or so I could hardly put it down which was surprising because it really wasn't all that action packed. This story had a strangely calming effect on me. Although it's labeled as a paranormal romance, the focus was actually more about the romance than the paranormal, despite the fact that the two main characters, Nick and Alex were only connecting with one another because of it.I liked the way the romance was developed extremely [...]

      **3.5** I came across this as a kindle freebie and was like 'what the hell, why not? And what a pleasant surprise. The plot felt fresh and original and I enjoyed it for the most part.I laughed, I cried - and I mean actual tears ran down my face. Let me repeat, tears ran down my face! My contacts almost fell out. This. never. happens. to me. Sure my eyes may water up sometimes, but it is rare that the tears actually fall!The banter between many of the characters was witty and felt genuine. And it [...]

      I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is full of romance, surprise and mystery.I have to admit that I was a bit confused at first about slipping. By the end of the book I felt I understood it much better.I loved the cast of characters and the romance between Nick and Alex.I wish the book contained more mundane details about Alex's life. I loved the fact that we got a nice glimpse into Nick's life and felt that it was lacking with [...]

      So, first thing - the covers. There are two of them.I understand the first one - the dock and the moon - and I love what it means to the story. But the one of the girl and boy kissing - that one is gorgeous. It made me want to read it and understand. And I think it is just as perfect to the story.And what a story it is. This book has some of the funniest and real dialogue I've ever read. It was witty and sarcastic and the "male perspective" was, I thought, very true. At first, I was confused abo [...]

      What could have beenI really enjoyed the first third of Sleepless; the writing was enjoyable, the characters were interesting, and the concept was intriguing.However, about half way into the book, the story fell off drastically for me. Character's reinvented their personality, the plot took a step into the ridiculous direction, and things ceased to make sense.

    11. Mariel on said:

      3.5/5 :)Yo pensé que me iba a gustar mucho menos de lo que pensaba.En realidad me gustó bastante.La historia tiene un giro interesante con respecto al tema de los sueños y de lo que la protagonista puede hacer o no. También me gustó que el protagonista, Nick, tuviera una carrera tan particular. Todo lo que tenga que ver con las fuerzas armadas, los militares, etc, me es completamente fascinante. Me encanta. Soy fiel amante de Nicholas Sparks y sus novelas románticas con soldados y blablabl [...]

      This review and many others can be found on my blog - Feed Your Fiction AddictionSleepless was such an incredibly enjoyable book! I was completely swept away by the romance between Alex and Nick and I thought that the concept for the story was really fresh and unique!The story follows 20-year-old Alex. Alex has a problem. She "Slips" in her sleep. She often falls asleep, safe in her bed, and wakes up somewhere else - it could be anywhere. While she's learned coping mechanisms, Slipping is far fr [...]

      This book didn't engage me from the beginning. To be honest, I found it a little boring and disjointed and I was getting ready to mark this as a DNF. It was very hard for me to get into the story. There were just too many unknowns and no one had any answers to the weird stuff that was going on. Add to that the H who was big a jerk and I was done. However, curiosity killed the cat, or in this case, my boredom, and I kept reading, finding myself slowly being drawn into this weird, oddly captivatin [...]

      I recieved this book from an author in exchange for honest review. Frankly, I didn't know what to expect from R4R book. Would it be significantly worse than any other book I've read? I know, how stupid of me to think that. Although if you really want to know, I am stupid, in the social sphere. I maybe that's why am I able to connect with Nick so much. Back to the point though; after few pages I realised how naive I was, how dumb. This book was interesting from the very beginning due to straightf [...]

      Cuando leí la sinopsis no terminaba de entender de que iba la historiaando lo leí tampoco jajaj XD.Tenemos a los protagonistas Alex y Nick, no se conocen, viven en distintos lugares, cada uno con sus cosas de alguna manera están conectados. Alex es una chica normal o eso parece a simple vistahasta que uno se entera que tiene una especie de poder que le permite "teletransportarse" de un lugar a otro mientras duerme. Ello ha sido así desde que Alex era sólo una niña pequeña. Pero lo que par [...]

    16. Shelley on said:

      This book took me by surprise. I am not a big fan of supernatural or paranormal books. I have read and enjoyed a few, but they’re not generally my “go-to” genres. I wanted to give this book a try and I am so glad that I did! Well, as it turns out…I do like supernatural books!This book was not an over-the-top supernatural book. Oh, the characters did possess a special kind of ability or power, but it was nothing that made me huff or roll my eyes. It is essentially a love story between two [...]

      Copy given for honest review. Warning: Proceed with caution the following review contains traces of spoilers. When I first opened up this book I really had no idea what I was getting myself into. I knew we had this girl, Alex by the way. I knew she was going to be special. What I never knew was that when she closed her eyes to go to sleep that the chances of her waking up somewhere else other then her own bed was the norm for her. Alex calls them slipping, she travels in her dreams. She has no c [...]

    18. Katie O'Sullivan on said:

      In short, I loved this book. Ms. Ward took a fairly unique concept and blended it together with a little of this and a little of that to create a New Adult paranormal romance that kept me spellbound within its pages.We meet each of the characters in quick succession, but spend most of the book with no idea of the root connection between them. When they start meeting up in the dreamscape, Nick doesn’t even believe Alex is real.In terms of paranormal, there are no “creatures” – no vampires [...]

    19. Katie on said:

      First off, although I was not the biggest fan like so many other readers, the concept is beyond unique. Every other paranormal seems like it's taken from the same cookie cutter mold and the characters are just replaced with different names/places with the story basically the same. It was refreshing to read something that was so unlike anything else in this genre so huge to props for that.With that being said, I just couldn't get into the book. There are so many other reviewers who are absolutely [...]

    20. Leylan on said:

      I just finished reading Sleepless by Tracey Ward and wished the second book was out already. I could not put it down. I love how the action flowed from a series of nightmares and Slipping episodes to full action with some form of military involved. I digress. I was given this book by the author on for an honest review and if you can't tell, I really loved reading it. I believe that this book has equal parts to the main characters of Alex and Nick. The alternating chapters helps the reader under [...]

      ********** Received an ARC in exchange for a HONEST review. *********So when i started reading this book i was really confused. I had no clue what was going on and i thought about stopping. I however persevered because the thought of not finishing a book bugs the crap out of me. So i kept reading. Once i got the hang of what was going on i really started to enjoy it. I assumed this book would be similar to other love stories or romance books but it is not. We start with Alex in her room looking [...]

      Received a copy of this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review.Okay, so I decided to read and review this book because come on! The storyline/plot looks great and really original. I indeed like it and enjoyed it in most part. I just love how real and fun their dialogues has been. Their banter were established in a natural and amusing way. Plus the aspect of the male point of view was just astonishing. I really thought that, 'yeah, guys talk/think like that.' XD The amazin [...]

      A much needed edited review for my re-reading of this amazing book:Talk about an underrated book - even after re-reading it's still one of my favourites simply because it's so unique. Take the Dream Thieves from the Raven Cycle books and throw in Inception, with a dash of Stranger Things, military and romance and you get this damn thrill-ride. (Don't let the cover fool you.) The twists and cliffhangers left me stressing out all over again and Nick and That Dream™ had me swooning Nick is the be [...]

      I got given a free copy by the author to read and review. There are some spoilers but none that will fully ruin the book.This book is full of tension, thrills and excitement. It was unputdownable! It has a fast pace and awesome, brilliantly developed characters. The plot line is so original and a real thrill ride. I like how the book Is told in alternate perspectives and the way the dream world ends abruptly, leaving you hanging. I really enjoyed Alex and Cara's relationship, they were great sis [...]

      A big thank you to Tracey Ward for giving me a copy of Sleepless to read for an honest review.I found myself drawn into Sleepless from the beginning. From the first page of the prologue I was drawn in and needed to know where this was headed. The story was amusing, intriguing, mysterious, and sometimes laugh out loud funny.Alex is a girl with an ability to travel in her sleep. She never knows where she will wake up and if her life will be at risk. Nick is the boy who lives without fear. And when [...]

    26. Lauren on said:

      Im not sure what I went into this book expecting. I wasn't sure if Id stumbled on a cute YA read, a sweet Romance novel much like James Patterson or Nicholas Sparks Nick is unreal. He is hard working, trusts no one, yet dreams of becoming a Hero to other heroes & he constantly pushes himself to the limit - because he can't feel fear? Or because he does & that terrifies him I dunno. All I do know is 10% through the book & all I could think was, DAMN, this guy is seriously intense!Alex [...]

    27. Toshi on said:

      The short version is this: the characters all have depth, their own voice, behave in believable ways and are funny in their own ways. The conversations are hilarious as are some of the author's descriptions of things. The relationship in the book is actually paced in a way that is believable, and nobody goes over the top crazy. The powers are very cool and have a lot of room for filling in, which seems like the plan for the next book.It is part of a series, though I'm unsure if there will be jus [...]
