Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem
Al Jawaab Billahit-Tawfeeq
1) In relation to your question it seems you are suffering from Wasaawis i.e. imaginary whispers. Make Dua Alaah Taala cures you from such thoughts.
With regards to your question you have written to say that only the word 'Talaq' has been uttered by you. You have stated that you were angry with your wife then read a book pertaining to Talaq and then said the word Talaq to yourself without the intention of divorcing your wife.
Since the word used was 'Divorce' only and not "I divorce you", "My wife is divorced", "She is divorced" etc.
A divorce has not taken place.
2) Again in this situation the Talaqs are not deemed as being a Sharee divorce as no thought of your wife or divorcing her was occuring in your mind. Mere discussion of the issue of Talaq and uttering the word Talaq does not constitute a divorce.
3) The dream that you saw is a good dream however it must be remembered that dreams cannot be used as evidence in Sharee rulings, therefore this dream has not and will not be taken into consideration in this ruling.
In conclusion from the above your wife is in your wedlock and no divorce has taken place.
If you are experiencing Wasaawis , You should make 2 people witness that you are sufferering from this condition and you have no intention of divorcing you wife.
If in the future you do utter a statement of divorce in this state then the divorce will not take effect.
And Allah knows best
