Hilarious and so much fun to read, Dream a Little Dream is the perfect pick-me-up that will leave you smiling from ear to ear.
Dream a Little Dream Summary
Sarah is doing just fine. Sure she’s been single for the last five years, and has to spend an uncomfortable amount 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).
But 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 makes 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?
Dream a Little Dream Review
I completely fell in love with Sarah, the main character in this story. She’s hilariously funny and so bloody relatable, more so than any of Gi’s previous characters for me. I was on her side the whole way through, laughing with her and crying with her too.
I loved watching Sarah grow from the first page to the last, learning to face heartbreak head-on. The concept is fun and quirky, yet manages to stay believable. I was worried that the idea of dreams becoming reality could get very silly, but you’ll find that Dream a Little Dream is far from it.
Giovanna manages to describe dreams in a realistically bonkers way, too. She perfectly demonstrates how they can make no sense at all but complete sense at the same time.
This one’s a bit raunchier than Gi’s previous novels and she isn’t afraid to swear to keep Sarah authentic and realistic.
I’d highly recommend Dream a Little Dream if you enjoy chick lit. It’s easy to read whilst managing not to be light and fluffy, touching on important themes that will stay with you for a long time. It’ll make a brilliant holiday read or a pick-me-up on a rainy day.
**** 4/5 stars
