Synopsis:
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. It turns out, though, that Real Max is nothing like Dream Max, and getting to know each other in reality isn’t as perfect as Alice always hoped.

When their dreams start to bleed dangerously 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?

Dreamology sucked me in and made me fall in love again!  I’m an avid fan of all things dreaming, but often find books written about them try to hard to explain them and not enough time exploring how wonderfully magical dreams can be.  Though it was a young adult novel, I felt that it tackled some of the tougher aspects of being young, including what might happen if you found yourself face to face with someone you’re in love with, in your dreams, and you must face the fact they are real.  We tend to rely on dreams as a safe space to explore our subconscious desires, but when that space becomes disturbed, it can greatly affect your reality.  Well paced and thoroughly exciting, I kept hoping that things would be fleshed out a bit more, but otherwise this was absolutely one of my favorite recent reads.  I don’t want to spoil anything so if you haven’t read the book, skip the next part of this review please!

I can best sum up how I felt by making a comparison, but in doing so I might give away a bit of the plot, hence the warning.  This is basically a ya version of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but with dreams instead of memories.  You can imagine that, with this being one of my favorite movies, I am immensely pleased with this book as well.  It was a lot of fun to be just as surprised as Alice and Max when they started to learn more about what was happening to them, and to find myself not guessing every little thing as it came up.
