Asleep by Krystal Wade
I love reading indie books that you don’t get to see all over bookstagram. There are so many hidden gems out there, and I wish they could all get the appreciation that they deserve. Asleep is one of those books. It’s a horror retelling of the Sleeping Beauty fairytale that is set in an insane asylum. Already sounding amazing isn’t it?! Pick it up, because you won’t be disappointed! You can read my full review of this book HERE.
“To cure fear, you must use fear.”
Rose Briar claims no responsibility for the act that led to her imprisonment in an asylum. She wants to escape, until terrifying nightmares make her question her sanity and reach out to her doctor. He’s understanding and caring in ways her parents never have been, but as her walls tumble down and Rose admits fault, a fellow patient warns her to stop the medications. Phillip believes the doctor is evil and they’ll never make it out of the facility alive. Trusting him might be just the thing to save her. Or it might prove the asylum is exactly where she needs to be.
