When Amethyst stumbles upon the house of her dreams, she can’t help but be enchanted by it, even if there’s something a little…off about the place.
It’s everything she’s ever wanted in a home, so when the Blooms invite her to stay the night to avoid an impending storm, she instantly accepts.
Yet when she awakes the next morning, alone and unable to bring herself to leave, Amethyst comes face-to-face with unexpected twists and turns—like Alfred, the creepy gardener; Avery, the handsome but secretive neighbor, and a little girl who keeps appearing and vanishing within the house.
As Amethyst searches for the Blooms and tries to unravel the truth, her connection to the house only grows stronger. Will she be able to break free of the house’s allure, or will its secrets keep her trapped forever?
Dream House is not my typical read. However it was rather enjoyable than expected.
One day, Amethyst comes across her Dream House. It's everything she loves in a house. Then out of nowhere she is invited in to this house by the Bloom's, as the rain is coming down. She stays the night but then she wakes the next day to find the house empty and strange events keep happening to her. She has no clue what is real or not real, she has many crazy experiences. Avery is the boy next door who tries to help her with as much info as he can, but she still thinks she is missing something huge.
Dream House was enjoyable to read because Amethyst tries to help those around her, like the gardener. He isn't so easy to just walk up to, yet she ease that with no problem. I enjoyed how she tried to find clues everything and tries to solve what was going on. I really enjoyed how Avery puts Amethyst first whenever she need someone to talk to, no matter the time of day or night. I especially like how brave she was through everything she encounters herself on the way. Then at the end, everything came back and started to make much more sense to her.
This story was very intriguing. You had no way of knowing which way this story would end up going. Definitely there were some twists in the story that I'd did not seen coming, yet it turned out so sweet in the end. This story was all in Amethyst point of view so you had no other clues to anything that was to happens. She experienced many weird things along her journey, a little girl, a weird gardener, the handsome neighbor, a house she cant seem to leave no matter how many times she tries. If you like stories like this, then you should give Dream House a try.
