Welcome to Really Really Short Reviews were the name is long and the reviews are short! Because sometimes short is that much sweeter. (Also, because I’m really lazy!) And there might be quotes too (lots and lots)! (Because everyone loves quotes, right?) – KIM IS HIJACKING THIS ONE! MWAHAHAHA!

Mysterious doors with lizard-head knobs. Talking stone statues. A crazy girl with a hatchet. Yep, Liv’s dreams have been pretty weird lately. Especially this one where she’s in a graveyard at night, watching four boys perform dark magic rituals.
The really weird thing is that Liv recognizes the boys in her dream. They’re classmates from her new school in London, the school where’s she’s starting over because her mom has moved them to a new country (again). But they seem to know things about her in real life that they couldn’t possibly know, which is mystifying. Then again, Liv could never resist a good mystery. . . .
Despite having such a predictable plot, it was easy to get caught up in Dream a Little Dream. The story was well written and the characters were a blast to read. Liv is a spunky main character who was easy to fall in love with and root for. Her relationship with Henry didn’t jive with me, but it was cute nonetheless.
Have some quotes!
The moment we first laid eyes on him, we were suspicious of Ernest I’m-just-like-my-stuffy-old-first-name Spencer. He’d even brought presents, which showed he was in dead earnest about Mom.
“Is Liv short for Livetta or Carlivonia?” mine asked. Is it what? Was she trying to make a fool of me? No one in the world was called Livetta or Carlivonia, were they?
Persephone uttered a hoarse, “Hi, Japscrsch.”
She got no answer. The boys were much too absorbed in their conversation to honor us with so much as a glance. And presumably none of them was really called Japscrsh.
Everything can be made better with a good book or some relaxing knits. 😀 Find me on IG @kimberlyh12 or on Twitter @enervated.
