Dreamology: Review and Giveaway (CLOSED)

*This post may contain affiliate links*

I'll be honest, it is very rarely do I active seek out an ebook to review. I just prefer to have the physical copy of a book in my hands-especially when it comes to reviews. I'm awful at highlighting on my iPad, so tagging essential passages is just easier with a hard copy.

That being said, "Dreamology" by Lucy Keating was an ebook ARC (advance review copy). The moment I got the offer in my email, I knew I had to signup to read it. I mean, look at this synopsis:

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. It turns out, though, that Real Max is nothing like Dream Max, and getting to know each other in reality isn’t as perfect as Alice always hoped.

When their dreams start to bleed dangerously 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?

Is it just me, or does that not just sound like something you've GOT to read about? 

I started digging in and honestly, couldn't stop. I read the entire book in two days. I read while nursing, I read in between school sessions with my oldest, and I finished late at night. I just couldn't stop! I LOVED every.single.word. 

"Dreamology" is absolutely adorable. It's a great fluffy contemporary that is AWESOME for coming off a high-fantasy or any other emotionally draining read. I laughed, got teary-eyed, and couldn't stop smiling even once. 

Keating is a fun writer-hands down. She's created one of my favorite book characters of 2016, and his name is Oliver. I NEED him to be my friend in real life!  You'll totally understand once you read this, but I read him in the voice of Fred, from Big Hero 6-otherwise known as TJ Miller:

(By the way, I tweeted this very thing to Lucy Keating and TJ Miller "liked" it. Yeah. Fangirl ignite!)

Her characters were real and very well rounded. These were people I could picture in real life. I could hear their voices and see their mannerisms in my head without fault. This is the kind of story that plays out like a good chick flick in my head.

And can we PLEASE address the most gorgeous book cover? I love the font and color scheme of this book. Just gorgeous. Planning on purchasing the hardback just so I can have it on my shelf!

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars! 

Everyone needs to read this. It's just so much fun and the writing is on point and never feels even the slightest bit cheesy. Keating's writing style puts me in the mind of Nicola Yoon in "Everything, Everything". (You can read my review of that book HERE)

If you're a contemporary lover, just go ahead and put this on your TBR. And if you're feeling lucky, why not go ahead and enter the giveaway to win your own copy!?
