Waiting on Wednesday #21

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week’s Waiting on Wednesday post is for The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett (Tor Teen):

Sixteen-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she’s a criminal. No, she’s a Nightmare.


Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother’s infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into Eli Booker’s house, things get a whole lot more complicated. He’s hot, which means sitting on his chest and invading his dreams couldn’t get much more embarrassing. But it does. Eli is dreaming of a murder.

Then Eli’s dream comes true.

Now Dusty has to follow the clues—both within Eli’s dreams and out of them—to stop the killer before more people turn up dead. And before the killer learns what she’s up to and marks her as the next target.


Why I’m looking forward to this book:

Doesn’t this sound like a completely new and fresh idea? I am SO ready for new concepts! I want to know what Dusty does as a nightmare (aside from the obvious) and how her magic works. I want to know more about this school, and why she’s in her mom’s shadow – what does her MOM do? And, you know, hot guys don’t hurt either! I love a good murder mystery, and this sounds like it has the makings of that. Plus headstrong, independent and tough girls don’t hurt either.

Release Date: March 5, 2013
