Summary (goodreads):

Caitlyn Monahan knows she belongs somewhere else. It’s what her dead mother’s note suggested, and it’s what her recurring nightmares allude to. Desperate to flee these terrifying dreams—and her small town—she accepts a spot at a boarding school in France. Only, when she arrives, her nightmares get worse. 

But then there are her amazing dreams, so vivid and so real, with visits from an alluring, mysterious, and gorgeous Italian boy from the 1500s. Caitlyn knows they are soul mates, but how can she be in love with someone who exists only in her dreams? 

Then, as her reality and dream world collide, Caitlyn searches for the real reason why she was brought to this school. And what she discovers will change her life forever.

Whoo for my first mini review! Are you guys excited? I am! Really, I am.

So why am I doing a mini review and not a full review on this book? Well, for one, the release date is way into the future and it's a bit too early to post a review on it just yet. But I feel like I have to post a review at the same time because it's part of my Halloween Challenge. And there you go, why Wake Unto Me doesn't get a full review... yet. Of course closer to the release date, I'll be posting my full review.

The book wasn't as creepy as I thought it would be, but it was a bit creepy. It had a ton of historical fiction in it (which I'm sure you could probably assume) place in France. I admired Caitlyn for being so daring and I enjoyed all the new friends she made. The book is also filled with mystery and wonderful twists.

I enjoyed reading this even if it was difficult to understand some parts since I don't know French or much about France (which is sad since I'd like to visit the country some day)!
