Book Review: Dream a Little Dream by Kerstin Gier

Dream a Little Dream (The Silver Trilogy #1)
Author:  Kerstin Gier
Publisher:  Henry Holt & Co., 336 pages
Publication Date:  April 14, 2015

From Goodreads:
Mysterious doors with lizard-head knobs. Talking stone statues. A crazy girl with a hatchet. Yes, Liv’s dreams have been pretty weird lately. Especially this one where she’s in a graveyard at night, watching four boys conduct dark magic rituals.

The strangest part is that Liv recognizes the boys in her dream. They’re classmates from her new school in London, the school where she’s starting over because her mom has moved them to a new country (again). But what’s really scaring Liv is that the dream boys seem to know things about her in real life, things they couldn’t possibly know—unless they actually are in her dreams? Luckily, Liv could never resist a good mystery, and all four of those boys are pretty cute…

I loved this book, it was a ridiculously fun read.  The perfect mix of humor, mystery, and romance.  Liv is a wonderful main character, full of spunk and sass.  Her voice is engaging, witty, and sarcastic.  And the dialogue…hilarious. I also loved her relationship with her sister.   

The paranormal element to the book is interesting, with the four hot guys able to visit each other's dreams, and Liv being pulled into it one night, but not really sure what is going on.  There's a bit of why, when you are warned, do you do something so stupid aspect about it, but I guess it makes sense when she doesn't really believe in the danger.  

My one complaint is that it was hard to keep the guys straight (they're all blond and gorgeous), but the romance is sweet, although I anticipate a love triangle in the second book.  But I could be wrong.

It's light and fluffy paranormal. So. Much. Fun.  If you love Rachel Hawkins (Hex Hall, Rebel Belle), you'll love Dream a Little Dream.

  4. So I read Kerstin Gier's The Ruby Red Trilogy and I just felt like all 3 books made 1 book, like not a lot happened in each book... Is it kind of the same for the start of this series? Not that I won't read it if it is.. I do like light and fluffy...

    1. I felt the same way about Ruby Red trilogy but it is not the same in this book. Obviously since it's a series it's not completely resolved, but it read like a normal first book. Hope that makes sense. ~Pam
