Five o’clock on the dot and I am out of the building. I find myself rushing home to dream of him, like an addict craving his next fix.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
Nina loses faith in love and decides to solely focus on her career. However, fate has different plans for Nina and her paranormal romance. Could this ever be reality? (Goodreads)
This book was so short!
At only 12 pages, the author was forced to cram a lot of story and therefore a lot of time into very few words. This resulted in a quick, easy read. However, it meant that the story felt choppy at points, because huge chunks of time would pass in a sentence. This was confusing, especially to tired Amy sitting by the fire. Yikes!
The story concept was interesting.
The main character, Nina, has had three different boyfriends cheat on her, and she’s basically given up on men. Then, she dreams of someone strange and unfamiliar. She pours her heart out to him, and he comforts her. Then, the next night she dreams of him again. And again, and again, and again. She becomes obsessed with him, and nothing else matters, and it is clear she is falling in love with this mysterious man. However, they know they come from different worlds, and they don’t know if or when their meetings will end, so they simply have to make the best of the time they have together.
In that sense, it was a bittersweet feeling.
Right away, you see the insta-love, and then the relationship progresses very quickly until Nina only cares for the man in her dreams. It was just kind of cute, but the feeling of not knowing when she could lose the love of her life was rather sad.
I sound like an emotionless robot.
I’m not…. This book is just very hard to review! Overall, the book is just so short that it skipped over a lot of details, a bunch of random characters were introduced and never come back to, and the passage of time was so fast that it was confusing. However, the concept and the love story was cute and bittersweet, so it was still enjoyable for such a quick read.
I would recommend this book if you’re looking for something really quick and easy to read. It’s a light and fluffy read to pass the time… Very quickly. 😉
Have any of you read this book? Plan to? Thoughts? Let me know down in the comments, I’d love to hear from you!
In other, quick news, Bout of Books (you can see my sign-up here) starts today! I participated in the Twitter chat… And then immediately became very confused. I thought it started the eighth! Turns out, the Biannual Bibliothon starts the eighth, and Bout of Books ENDS the eighth. Anyhoo, for some reason I thought I’d already signed up for the Biannual Bibliothon, but I haven’t!
These are my books of choice for the Biannual Bibliothon:
- Group book- Stalking Jack the Ripper (if I have time)
- Throwback: Book with less than 1000 ratings on Goodreads- The Legacy Girls
- 2016 release- Sinful Cinderella
- A book you were really excited for but never picked up- Lucky Me
- A retelling- A Thousand Nights
- Diverse book- Never Never by Colleen Hoover???
As I’m still participating in the COYER challenge, I don’t know if I’ll be able to read Stalking Jack the Ripper (I’d have to get it from my library) and I most likely won’t be able to read a book recommended by a BookTuber. Does anyone know if Never Never by Colleen Hoover is diverse? I can’t seem to find it anywhere in actual writing, but there was some kind of Google turn-up about Diverse YA, so I’m not sure. Please let me know down in the comments! 🙂 Are any of you participating in Bout of Books or Biannual Bibliothon? OR BOTH? I’m probably going to completely fail one or both of these readathons, as they are back-to-back, and I go back to school on the ninth! Wish me luck!
Lots of Love, Amy ❤
