My WoW:  

The Nightmare Affair 
by Mindi Arnett
Hardcover, 352 pages
Expected publication: March 5th 2013 by Tor Teen


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.

"He’s hot, which means sitting on his chest and invading his dreams couldn’t get much more embarrassing." Lol, I just D'AWWWWW-ed on this part. Dusty seems so cute and I think I like her already. ;)


  1. I'm so excited for this one too! I love the synopsis and like you, I think I'm going to just adore Dusty and her sense of humor as well! Can't. Wait. Why is 2013 so far away?? Awesome pick this week, Chel! :D

  2. Yay! I'm really looking forward for this book. I even had a little chat with the author in twitter about this. I actually even requested a review copy for this already and I hope they approve me. Haha! And oohh, that line! I remember quoting that too when I had this on my WoW sometime ago. That actually was the one that made me want to read this. LOL! Great pick, Chel! :)
