    1 thought on “Once She Dreamed

    1. 3 STARS Sammy Jo Knox only wants one thing out of life and it s to leave her small town of Moulton, Alabama and see the world Oddly, she has zero aspirations like a career that would pay for this dream or even a talent to rely on I think the author should have given her a singing or photography talent just something other than her good looks and country kindness She has big dreams of not getting stuck in this town but really zero plans on how to achieve this goal and so she falls for charms and [...]

    2. Once She Dreamed follows Sammy Jo, a naive young woman who dreams of leaving her small town for adventures in the big city She plans on accomplishing her dreams by any means possible, even if she has to rely on a man to take her away I love Abbi Glines She s an automatic buy author and I always know I m in for a good time when reading her books However, this novella was awful The main character is so naive and sweet it was annoying and had me rolling my eyes every other page The trope of the blo [...]

    3. I finished this novella in one sitting and I m frustrated with the story and its characters I have a love hate relationship with the heroine, Sammy Jo She s country girl who dreams of travelling places and doesn t want to be stuck in her small hometown I don t mind ambitious heroines as long as they know what they re doing but in Sammy s case, she s too naive and foolish I m annoyed when she easily trusted Hale when he offered her a job in New York as his housekeeper For her, it s a great opport [...]

    4. This one is definitely intriguing and has me ready to read part 2 It s hard to rate serials because the first ones always leave you with lots of answers and wanting Regardless, I like Sammy Jo and I am excited to see what comes next.

    5. I don t even know what to say I love Abbi s books and I was looking forward to finally reading these 2.But jeez At first I thought WTF Did Abbi write this when she was a 13 year old school drop out in the Alabama sticks The language and writing is horrible I know that some of it needs to be like that, because we are in a tiny town in Alabama, but it felt offensive somehow, to those people living there They come across as stupid and naive and smallminded and whatnot A good editor would ve really [...]

    6. Here s a surpriseI loved this book Once again Glines drew me in and kept me entertained I even used my Kindle gasp so for those of you who know me, know just how amazing that is I m not a digital book reader but I will drag it out for certain authors Anyways back to the book.I m sad it s only a novella I wanted to much of Sammy Jo, Hale and Ezra It had just got to the really good part when it ended which made me sad I hope the next one comes out soon because I m going to be sitting on the edge [...]

    7. Release Date October 10, 2016 Genre New Adult Young Adult Romance Novella Series Once She Dreamed 1I have seen quite a few negative reviews as they pertain to this book, but I have to say that I really enjoyed it I am a HUGE fan of Glines and will read anything that she writes While this may be a tiny reason as to why I liked the book, it certainly isn t the only reason For starters, I think for a story as short as this one is, we were able to get a full grasp of Sammy Jo s wants and needs for t [...]

    8. Oh, Abbi, what happened I swear Abbi Glines used to be one of my four go to authors I didn t have to read the blurbs, I just clicked and read But over the last few books I have found they didn t have a spark I don t know if that makes sense, but I just felt like I was reading words on a page I wasn t experiencing the story like I had in her other novels I didn t feel.And, unfortunately, this book was the same I felt like the characters had no chemistry, the characters were so boring and flat, an [...]

    9. OMG why did I read it without looking at the end I hate cliffhanger endings but I m a sucker for stories like this and I can t wait until part 2 will be released

    10. Gah How long do we have to wait for the next book My imagination is going wild and I want to know about Ezra because I think I m rooting for him

    11. My live review is now on my new blog too Pierced Reader ReviewI feel that maybe I m being to hard on this book But then I remember the ending.I love Abbi Glines I haven t given one of her books a rating lower then 4 in a very very, very long time I ve read every book she s released as a New Adult contemporary romance and loved the entire journey I ve been eagerly waiting for what comes next and when I saw that she ALREADY had not one BUT TWO books released I went to and bought it on kindle right [...]

    12. It s not that I didn t like reading Once She Dreamed It s just that I had very high expectations, because well it s Abbi Glines and all those quotes I saw littering around Instagram, made me hungry for an incredible read Too bad, it s not really what I got At first, reading this novella made me feel sad, because it resembelled all the things that irritated me while reading The Vincent Boys novels Very long descriptions, but minor details The story itself didn t really tell you much A very immatu [...]

    13. I want to start out saying I have loved all of Abbi Glines other books so was prepared to enjoy this one but unfortunately that didn t happen This read like a knock off of Fifty Shades of Grey or at least that is where it looks like it is going but since it s so short I could be wrong the book seemed to end in the middle and since I found myself never really liking any of the characters mostly it was who to disliked the least I don t even want to see where the story goes hopefully Abbi Glines wi [...]

    14. I haven t read very many books written by this author but the ones that I have, I have enjoyed Sadly though, I did not like this book There was something about the way this story was written that I couldn t get on with I ended up skim reading the majority of the story just so I could finish the book but I could have easily have stopped part way through and left it as a DNF I won t continue reading this series.

    15. I want to fall in love Not with a boy here, but with someone who wants to travel the world Someone with ambition than to build a house with a white picket fence and have babies till their uterus falls out I loved what was in mind of this main character she wanted to change her life, didn t depend on what had excited around her To be honest what she dreamed is similar what i have in mind, Although I didn t like the ending of this bookBut Overall i loved this book Couldn t stand any longer to the [...]

    16. Okay, this had promise and I was very much invested in Sammy Jo s journey out of her home town of Alabama This mysterious Hale had me visualizing all sorts and I was stoked for part 2.Her s the rubrt 2 did not really live up to what I expected from Abbi Sorry peeps but that s just my opinion.Later peeps x

    17. 3 Stars I normally absolutely love Abbi Glines books, but this one I only liked Sammy Jo was a bit naive for me and something about her I just couldn t connect with.I enjoyed the storyline in a way, but in other ways it annoyed me I don t particularly like Hale, but I think we re going to get a lot answers in part 2 Part 1 has lot of questions at the end still.Ezra is also a mystery I m hoping we get some answers to I would like to see how things play out for Ben and Jamie and also for Sammys f [...]

    18. Once She Dreamed is part one in a new novella series by Abbi Glines I m a long time fan of Glines and was excited to read some new material However, I was a little disappointed by this one I understand that it s a YA storyline, but the main character, Sammy Jo, is very naive and sort of beats you to death with her dreams of leaving her small town to the point where anyone who wants to stay feels inferior to her.I m curious to see the direction that Glines takes the story over the course of the 3 [...]

    19. Man I love this book I am glad to know that Abbi Glines s recent work are still awesome Like a Memory was really a downer for me Sammy Jo is completely in tune with me She lives in a small town with her mum and siblings She work at a bakery with her mum But she always have big dreams She dream of something bigger and better She want to get out of this town and see what this world have to offer, instead of staying in this town, marry a town boy and have some babies Sammy Jo wants and she wasn t [...]

    20. Boring and predictable I usually like this author s books even though every single one of her female characters are the same unbelievably beautiful, doesn t know they are unbelievably beautiful, nice, naive, and a virgin I don t usually care that they are ALL like this because Abbi does a good job of making me like them but it seems she didn t try with Sammy Jo Ugh is she bee annoying Going on every five seconds about how she wants to leave and he only way she will do that is if a man helps her [...]

    21. Fresh off The Sweet Series by Abbi Glines, I decided to read another from her The story of Sammy Jo Know was easy enough to follow Sammy is a country girl longing to find her way to the big city the biggest out there NYC Enter a charming and handsome, but rich stranger in the form of Hale Christopher Jude III.As much as this one had an interesting plot line I really wasn t too impressed with it I much rather enjoyed Abbi Glines Sweet Series and this one just fell flat for me Neither of the two m [...]

    22. 3.5 might be better, I love Abbi s books, and YA is her best, but this was beyond short and so little happened It starts great and I like the characters, but I can t tell yet if I like all the WHY S in my head or if they are annoying me I will read book two and see.

    23. You re the last thing I think about at night I usually fall asleep pretty happy I love Abbi Glines, but I did not like this book The plot was lacking details, the relationships felt rushed I m not sure what s going on with this, but it doesn t feel like the same author who wrote the Sea Breeze series

    24. Hmmm.a novella with a well thought out and not rushed storyline I m intrigued as to where this is going, that s for sure.

    25. Look, I ve read almost every Abbi Glines book out there, and even though I only rate each one 2 or 3 stars, I still read them Why They re semi entertaining and I want to know what happens Usually after reading one, I ask myself, Why did I finish that Honestly, still unsure There s just something about these books that I must enjoy I do like that the characters USUALLY have some hardship they are overcoming have overcome Not this book The main girl drives me nuts She thinks she s nothing special [...]
