For as long as Alice can remember, she has dreamed of Max. Together, they have traveled the world and fallen deliriously, hopelessly in love. Max is the boy of her dreams—and only her dreams. Because he doesn’t exist.
But when Alice walks into class on her first day at a new school, there he is. Real Max is nothing like Dream Max. He’s stubborn and complicated. And he has a whole life Alice isn’t a part of. Getting to know each other in reality isn’t as perfect as Alice always hoped.
Alarmingly, when their dreams start to bleed into their waking hours, the pair realize that they might have to put an end to a lifetime of dreaming about each other. But when you fall in love in your dreams, can reality ever be enough?
First, I’m so sorry for my lack in my blogging. I have so many posts I need o put up but I’ve been super busy working and writing that my blogging has taken a hit. So sorry you guys. Second, I actually finished Dreamology a while ago but I just realized I never reviewed it on here. I talked about it a lot on Instagram but now here so here’s my review now. Sorry for the delay!
I loved this book. It was a super cute and fun read that I think only took me a day or two to finish. The novel is told in the point of view of Alice (a name I’ve come to love thanks to Phyllis Reynolds Naylor’s Alice series) and she’s fallen in love with the guy of her dreams. Literally. Almost every night she has a dream about a boy named Max and this has been happening for years. She doesn’t know how or why it happens but Alice has fallen in love with Max even though she’s never met him in person.
Until she does that is. On Alice’s first day at her new school in Boston Alice sees Max. In person. But it seems although Alice recognizes Max immediately, Max doesn’t feel the same connection to Alice as she does with him. In fact, Max has a girlfriend, making things for Alice even more complicated.
Honestly, I hated real life Max at first. He was so rude and kind of mean to Alice. But then things changed and I actually really liked him. Also, although I really liked this book I began skimming some of the dreams. I just didn’t care about them. Still, overall I really liked this book. It’s short and cute and a great summer read. Definitely check it out if you haven’t yet.
