Book Review: Dream a Little Dream by Giovanna Fletcher

Hello all!

Today's post is a book review by the wonderful Giovanna Fletcher. I've previously read Giovanna's books, and when I knew that Dream a Little Dream was approaching publication, I knew I had to free up a day to just sit and read, as its the only way I ever finish a book.

Last Saturday was the day. I dedicated the whole afternoon and loved it. It was the escape by brain needed to relax- anyway enough on me, now onto the book. (*this does contain spoilers*)

Sarah, the lead character has worked the same job and lived the same life for years, and its safe to say she's pretty bored of it- especially when the ex-boyfriend and his fiancĂ© are still within your friendship group. awkward. 

Yet one morning, a dream featuring someone she used to know from university (aka Dream Brett) sent her thoughts wondering, and over time lead to her dreams being so much more exciting (and sometimes somewhat interesting- four words, 'Bruno-Tonioli-black-speedos.') However what happens when 'Dream Brett' appears in real life ('Real Brett') working in the office block. Friendships and fun continues as Sarah's dream (but real, oh this is confusing) work happens with 'Granny takes a Gap'.

Giovanna covers both hilariously awkward and sensitive subjects wonderfully within the book, including miscarriage, affairs, engagement, loneliness and a rather unpleasant Christmas party. (Can I also mention that I love the fact Billy Buskin is mentioned!!!)

To conclude, this heartbreakingly wonderful novel is one of Giovanna's finest, and I cannot wait for the next one.
