Dreamology by Lucy Keating Review

HELLO MY LITTLE FELLOW MUNCHKINS!!!!! HOW HAVE YOU ALL BEEN? I’ve been good. I am about to do homework and chores but I want to post before I do any of that. I am so stuffed from dinner so I am happy about that. Does anyone have a dog? I do. If you do tell me about them in the comments. NaNoWriMo is almost over and I hope everyone who has been participating has gotten some words done, as even ONE word is still more than NONE. Anyways you came here to read a review so what you want is what you shall get.


Pages: 341

Author: Lucy Keating

Publisher: Harper Teen

Publishing Date: April 12, 2016

Genre: Teen and Young Adult

Description according to Amazon, “Vibrantly offbeat and utterly original, Lucy Keating’s debut novel combines the unconventional romance of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind with the sweetness and heart of Jenny Han.

For as long as Alice can remember, she has dreamed of Max. Together, they have traveled the world and fallen deliriously, hopelessly in love. Max is the boy of her dreams—and only her dreams. Because he doesn’t exist.

But when Alice walks into class on her first day at a new school, there he is. Real Max is nothing like Dream Max. He’s stubborn and complicated. And he has a whole life Alice isn’t a part of. Getting to know each other in reality isn’t as perfect as Alice always hoped.

Alarmingly, when their dreams start to bleed into their waking hours, the pair realize that they might have to put an end to a lifetime of dreaming about each other. But when you fall in love in your dreams, can reality ever be enough?”


This book was just so


and then it has a moment where you’re are just like (The Below Giphy) to all of the characters


And then you have a couple of these moments

And then the story is over and you don’t you know what life is, what love is and how you were able to function before as your are know sad yet book hungover.

Now onto the real part of the review

  • The writing style was MAGNIFICENT.
    • I loved how we went from real life to the dream world where the main characters, Alice and Max saw and talked to each other.
  • We had A LOT of world building but it was just in the right way allowing for you to keep on coasting on in the story but you are having information thrown at you in five different directions, but your brain doesn’t feel overwhelmed.
    • A lot of the world building was taking place in the memories and I love having the memories to read and let us get back to the review know.
    • This book was just right and didn’t need another book as it would have felt like to much, it would go on and on and it ended just right.
  • I was lucky to like the main characters even thought they did some stupid stuff at moments and said some stupid stuff at moments.
  • This book was vey much a work of fiction and I do know that it is 100000% not plausible yet I still enjoyed it and I hope you do too.
  • The things I didn’t like were:
    • Real Life Max
      • I feel like real life max and dream max are completely diffrent people as he allows himself to be a diffrent person in each category. So in conclusion
        • Real Life Max, BAD.
        • Dream Max, GOOD.
    • I didn’t care for how many plot holes there was as it seemed like I was just falling into an never ending plot hole mess.
      • giphy57
    • How the side characters WEREN’T so present as I really loved them and I wish they were there more.

In conclusion, I really liked this book but it does have some faults.


Info about the Author:


According to Goodreads, “Lucy lives in San Francisco, California. She grew up in Boston, Massachusetts, attended Williams College in the Berkshires, and still misses the East Coast very much.

When she’s not writing, Lucy can usually be found obsessing over the latest music, inventing new flavors of ice cream, or having what she feels are perfectly acceptable conversations with her dog, Ernie.

You can follow Lucy on Instagram @lucy.keating, and Ernie The Dog @ernsboberns.”

Her website is HERE.

Her Twitter is HERE.

A favorite quote of mine is: 

“Max: Getting in the elevator. Just to tell me how you felt. You are totally insane, Alice, and you do live in a dreamworld sometimes. You prefer things when they are stranger and prettier than everyday life. But that means you also make every moment of my life dreamier. More exciting and unexpected. When you are around, my life is always sparkly. And I don’t want to change you. I don’t want to run from it, either. I want to make you feel the way you make me feel. I want to make you happy.”
