Dreamology by Lucy Keating

“Dreams feel real while we’re in them. It’s only when we wake up that we realize something was actually strange”

Who could have imagined a movie which takes place 90 % in dreams could be such a huge success ( Inception. Duh!!). Dreams are kind of fascinating what with all the superstitions associated with them like ” Early morning dreams come true”. I for one love sleeping and getting dreams especially the ones I remember is cherry on the top cause I always get the craziest and weirdest dreams ever. And then there are times when we make up dreamy scenarios in our heads. Come on, who hasn’t dreamt of our perfect guy proposing us in a scene straight out of a Nicolas Spark novel. And what if you wake up next day and bam! you bang right into the same guy. How cool and freaky would that be, right ? Well that’s exactly what happens in Dreamology.


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?

What I Felt: This book is a perfect read for February (the month of love). The story is cute and makes you smile. Also the message of how sometimes when we fall in love with someone, we add our own layers to them which is a fallacy is well put. The characters are likeable and the mystery is kind of intriguing. Though they are too perfect and one dimensional. It is kind of like watching a movie. And you would certainly like it if teenage romance is your genre.

I would give it a 3/5.

My dreamcast for the movie would be.

  1. Chloe Moretz as Alice
  2. Matt Lanter as Max

  1. How have I never heard of this book before?! I’m adding it to my TBR list asap. I also have the most insane dreams, literally out of this world. I’ve always thought it’s because I read so much so my brain is always off in a different galaxy. I love this review! Great work!
