Source: I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
One thing you expect from a book with the word "book" somewhere in the title is mention of beloved real life titles. Such as the main character, Kitty, reading Something Wicked This Way Comes and that fact that her cat is named after Aslan in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Other titles relevant to the time period pop up along the way too.
But, this book! I loved it. From beginning to end it held my attention. Kitty Miller is 38, lives in a small duplex, and walks or rides her bike to the bookshop she runs with her best friend Freida. But suddenly, when she falls asleep at night, she slips into a dream world where everything in her life is completely different. The more time she spends there, the more she allows her dream life to come into her real life, until she is unsure which she prefers. And, until pieces of her dream world show up in different ways in her real world. If it comes to a choice, what will she do? How can she possibly choose?
I know that short summary of mine is pretty much all that's said of this book on sites like Amazon, but honestly, not much more can be said. Each step into the dream world is like a new revelation in the journey the reader takes with Kitty. I wouldn't want to ruin that for anyone! But, I highly recommend this book!
