Swanson masterfully crafts both Kittys and Katharyns worlds, leaving open the question of which of them is real until the final pages. Swansons evocative novel freshly considers the timeless question, What if? Publishers Weekly1962: It may be the Swinging Sixties in New York, but in Denveras in many other American citiesits different: being a single gal over thirty is almost bohemian. Still, thirty-eight-year-old Kitty Miller has come to terms with her unconventional life. She was involved, once, but things didnt work out. Now she dedicates herself to the bookstore she runs, returning home each evening to her cozy apartment.Then the dreams begin.1963: Katharyn Andersson is married to Lars, the love of her life. They live in a picture-perfect home in a suburban area of Denver, the ideal place to raise their children. Katharyns world is exactly what Kitty once believed she wanted . . . but it exists only when she sleeps.At first, Kitty enjoys her nighttime forays into this alternate world. But with each visit, Katharyns alluring life grows more real. As the lines between the two worlds begin to blur, Kitty faces an uncertain future. What price must she pay to stay? What is the cost of letting go?Will make you think about the paths you could have takenbut even more so, what you can learn from them to make your reality richer.Redbook

Hi everyone! I finally finished a book this month. I've been in a reading slump. I really enjoyed this book. I really enjoyed this story. This about a girl named Kitty who owns a bookstore with her bestfriend. Both of them are older and aren't married. Kitty at night starts dreaming about this other life with a guy she married to and they have 3 kids. The dreams are so real she starts wondering if she's in a different world.

#30JuneBooks - Book Source: I purchase books wherever they are found. Whether I am looking for books or not looking for books, when I come across books, at least, one of them must come home with me. There are no rules and no restrictions...well, there must be money on me and no hungry children with me. Since the boys are always hungry, when I am planning to purchase several books, I sneak to the bookstore after work or place an order online.😂

This is a quick, easy and enjoyable read. It was great to read about love between a relatable married couple in early middle age. I will be buying this book as a gift, as I can think of more than one friend who would like it. A definite recommend.

Kitty is a bookseller with a failing store. She starts dreaming about an alternate life she would have had with a met who stood her up on their first date. The story goes back and forth between reality and dreams. But which is which? Set in the early 1960s with themes of family, motherhood, and the changing lives of women during this time.

This is a quick read. The ending is a little unrealistic. Overall I enjoyed this book.

When Kitty starts having dreams where her life is completely different, she enjoys them. But as time goes on the dreams become more vivid and Kitty is unsure she wants them to continue. Can she stop the dreams or will they consume her?
I loved this book. The contrast between Kitty‘s waking and dream world is startling. I loved the twist at the end.

Turns out I have very few novels that are well suited for today‘s #FierceFeb prompt 🤷🏻‍♀️ Although I seem to have several that promote the opposite. However, depending on the store, being a bookseller can be a #9to5 job.

And once again the books pictured are part of my TBR mountain. Someone viewing my posts for only the monthly photo challenge would think that I don‘t actually have any books I‘ve read on my shelves 🤣
