I’ve loved books ever since I was a little girl. I’ve always been able to get lost into a different world and could get through a pile of books in a week. I love it. It’s my favourite hobby. Ever since I finished the A Song of Ice and Fire Series (aka, Game of Thrones), I’ve not quite been able to get into anything as heavy. I’m eagerly awaiting George R R Martin to release the date of when Winds of Winter will be out, so, until he reveals, I’ve been reading lighter, shorter books so Winds of Winter will have my full attention. Good plan me.
So, this brings me onto Dream a Little Dream. Giovanna Fletcher is one of my favourite celebrities. She comes across of one of those women who would stop and have a coffee with you and have a genuine interest in your life. I loved watching her on Youtube with her weekly, ‘Coffee with G’ and knowing what was going on in the Fletcher Household. She seems such a lovely lovely lady who deserves all the success she gets.
I never read one of her novels before ‘Dream a Little Dream’ but after reading it, I can safely say I’m putting an order on Amazon for her other novels. It’s a lovely, funny and uplifting read telling the story of Sarah who lives a happy-ish/OK-ish life in London. She works as a PA for someone who’s an arsehole and doesn’t appreciate her, she has to remain friends with her ex boyfriend so not to upset her friends, her ex has the perfect girl, her Mum’s constantly putting her down and she’s been single for 2 years. Her escape for her OK-ish life becomes her dreams where she dreams about the perfect man but her dream man then enters real life and it blurs the lines.
Giovanna’s novel is not only hilarious and a page turner, it tackles some real issues beautifully and sensitively. You fall in love with the depth of the characters and I certainly found traits of myself in all of them. Giovanna has a really imaginative and creative style. So, if you are looking for a poolside, light, chick flick I would recommend this one. Oh, and as an added bonus, Giovanna announced yesterday that Dream A Little Christmas Dream is coming out on the 8th October. I can’t think of anything better to get me ready for Autumn/Winter!
There’s a reason why I haven’t gone full detail into the plot and that’s because I’m giving away a copy of Dream a Little Dream. My bookcase is full of books and to be honest, I’m running out of room. Our loft is literally overrun with books and there’s only so many I can put in my spare room without The Geek going mad at me. So, if you are off on your holiday soon and need a poolside read then enter to win my copy along with a little cheeky something from Lush.
This giveaway is only open to the UK I’m afraid due to postage. It closes on the 1st September and will be sent out on ASAP. I will contact the winner on Twitter who will have 5 days to reply, if not, I will pick another winner
