Mysterious doors with lizard-head knobs. Talking stone statues. A crazy girl with a hatchet. Yes, Liv's dreams have been pretty weird lately. Especially the one where she's in a graveyard at night, watching four boys conduct dark magic rituals.
The strangest part is that Liv recognizes the boys in her dream. They're classmates from her new school in London, the school where she's starting over because her mom has moved them to a new country (again). But what's really scaring Liv is that the dream boys seem to know things about her in real life, things they couldn't possibly know--unless they actually are in her dreams? Luckily, Liv never could resist a good mystery, and all four of those boys are pretty cute.... (Goodreads)
When I first discovered Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier, I knew I would have to read the book. I've had her Precious Stone trilogy on my to-be-read list for quite a while now, but haven't had the chance to read them yet, so I was excited to finally read something by her. I really enjoyed Dream a Little Dream more than I expected to, and now I'm curious to read more by Gier as soon as possible!!
The characters in the book were all interesting, and each in their own unique way. The main character, Liv, was quite hilarious, and made me giggle more than a few times throughout the book. The boys in the story were all interesting as well, but I'd rather you read the book and meet them yourself than to try to explain them all to you. One in particular will make you swoon. *wink*
The storyline for the book was engrossing, and it felt very similar to Maggie Stiefvater's Raven Cycle series, which I absolutely adore. I love that this book kept me guessing throughout, although I did have one part figured out pretty quickly, and I thank my powers of suspicion for that, but I love not really knowing what was going to happen next in the story. I can't to continue on with this series!
Overall; I found Dream a Little Dream to be a very enjoyable read, and I can't wait to start the second book in the series, Dream On, which was released on May 3rd in the US! I'm super curious to see what adventure is next for Liv and her boys!!
