Waiting on Wednesday – 10
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
I discovered these two books last week while going around some WoW posts, and was immediately drawned by the covers. Then, I read the summaries and I just new these books would have to land in my hands, one way or the other! I haven’t read Brenna Yovanoff yet, but the comments I read lead me to believe I would enjoy her work. As for The Nightmare Affair, it’s the first novel by the author, which is always exciting.

The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett
(March 5th, 2013)
16-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she’s a criminal. No, she’s a Nightmare. Literally. Dusty is a magical being who feeds on human dreams.
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. The setting is Arkwell.
And then it comes true.
Now the 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.
