Hey Junkies, it’s been a while since my last post which I believe was around the end of June, and now here we are at the end of July. I’ve had a tough time with my health lately (head on over to my sister blog to find out why) and so haven’t had much time for blogging.
However, in that time I had plenty of chances for reading (which lets face it, is never a bad thing) and so the first book that I’m reviewing is going to be this wonderful masterpiece from the ever improving Giovanna Fletcher. So in true Gi style I’m gong to review her book the same way she reviews others.
Sarah is doing just fine…
Sure, she’s been single for the last two years, and has to spend an uncomfortable around of time around her ex-boyfriend, his perfect new girlfriend and all their mutual friends. And yes, her job as a PA to one of the most disgusting men in London is mind-numbingly tedious and her career is a constant disappointment to her mother. But it’s really okay. She’s happy(ish).
So it’s not surprising that when Sarah starts dreaming about a handsome stranger, she begins to look forward to falling asleep every night. Reality isn’t nearly as exciting. That is until her dream-stranger make an unexpected real-life appearance, leaving Sarah questioning everything she thought she wanted.
Because no one ever really finds the person of their dreams…do they?
I’ve been a dedicated Giovanna Fletcher fan since she first cropped up with Billy and Me. After then reading her second novel You’re the One that I Want I was still a fan but was disappointed that I much preferred Billy and Me. But now I’ve read Dream A Little Dream I have found a new favourite.
At first I didn’t love Dream A Little Dream as much as I loved Billy and Me, but the further I read the further I fell in love. Dream A Little Dream is everything you could ever want from a book, and is so heart-warmingly brilliant that you will want to scream about it from the highest building you can find.
Sarah is such a relatable character for so many people out living life in the real world, stuck in dead-end jobs that weren’t at all what they expected, and stuck surrounded by exes with no way to escape them. What really draws you to Sarah though is her will and her determination. It doesn’t matter that she’s in a dead-end job and plagued by her ex, she still has a positive outlook on life. In the end, it is this positive outlook that carries Sarah from beginning to end.
Giovanna’s writing has also increased in leaps and bounds from Billy and Me till Dream A Little Dream, as I feel that Dream A Little Dream flows so much better and has much better transitions than Billy and Me did. Also, got to give Giovanna props that with each novel she releases she just keeps improving and improving, and definitely will keep hitting the best seller list with each new release she has. I’ll definitely be buying (so will my Gran, she’s always asking when there’s a new Giovanna Fletcher book out)!!
Dream A Little Dream is the book that you didn’t know you wanted until you read it, and it is a book that absolutely anyone can fall in love with.
Keep reading xox.
