Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.
Coming March 5, 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 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.
Seriously, I am in love with the cover art for The Nightmare Affair. Mindee Arnett has one badass marketing team because the cover, along with all of her swag is just freaking awesome. I mean, look at it! Oh, you want me to talk about more than the cover? Well, secondly, the title is just perfect, right? Such a charming phrase that it instantly intrigued me. The premise is definitely interesting, because I’ve always been fascinated by all things dream-related. Okay, I don’t think I’m being especially coherent right now, so I’m just going to go back to looking at the cover.
I love everything about this, seriously. I would pick this up in a heartbeat! Fantastic WoW choice. :D
Yes! Only 5.5 more months until it’s out in the wild. *squirm*
(Also: holy crap, Meagan Spooner commented on my blog! Hi Meagan!)
I’m really excited for The Nightmare Affair. I love the cover and it’s sounds awesome. Great choice :)
Yeah, it looks like you and I both had paranormal choices this week. Cheers! :)
I agree that the cover is great- and the book itself sounds charming. Even better! Nice WoW.
Yeah, it’s great when the cover matches the contents of the book. Here’s to hoping that will be the case with this one. (When we finally get to read it 6 months from now! :)
This sounds like a seriously good read. Here’s my WOW.
Thanks for stopping by. :)
This looks like a fun read!
Check out my WoW
Yay! Thanks for visiting. I love meeting other book bloggers. :)
The cover really is beautiful! And I’ve seen this around a fair bit, it sounds really exciting! :)
Yeah, I’ve been seeing it all over the place, which is why I got so excited about it. It was only recently that I realized how far away the publication date is, lol.
I was just talking about this book last night with my sister. It seems so epic!! :)
Oh, yay for talking about books with your sister! My sister and I do all kinds of bookish things together too. :)
Sounds interesting. I hadn’t heard of it before. I do have to say, the cover reminds me of Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan. I don’t know for you.. I’ll have to add this book to my TBR pile, since it sounds like something I would enjoy.
Em @ A Beautiful Madness
Yes, there are definite similarities between this cover and the one for Unspoken – thanks for pointing that out! I just love them both. I can’t wait to see the covers for the rest of the books in both series.
I want this book too!! Great pick! Thanks so much for spotlighting it today. Please check out my WoW!
Yay for The Nightmare Affair! :)
Ermergherd. Following you here was a very. bad. idea. (in the best way possible) SO MANY BOOKS!!!! I want them ALLLLLL.
HAHAHA! Yeah, beware. I’ve now gotten in so deep that I know I’ll never be able to read them all. Trying to fall back a little and only read the ones I want to read the MOST, and only buy them when I’m ready to read them (that doesn’t always happen, lol).
How did you get that “add to goodreads” button? I love that! Goodreads is a godsend, it’s such a fun way to keep track of the books I want to read.
I know, I love Goodreads! I can’t remember where I found that button, but I know it took a while to find it, lol. I’ll look for it again and let you know. :)
Hmm.. I’ve tried commenting a couple of times so let’s see if this one works!
I love drooling over cover art, I know that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but I truly think it’s an art form and I like seeing what the publishers come up with to visually represent their books.
Also, how did you get that “add to goodreads” button? I love it! Goodreads is great, it’s such a fun way to organize the books I’ve read and want to read.
I agree about the covers. It’s definitely an art! And I do find it difficult to want to read a book with a cover I dislike. Sad, but true. :(
As for the goodreads button, I think all I did was save the image from somewhere else (I see this button all over other blogs, but I have no idea where it originated). Then all I do is just add the image to my blog post and link it to the goodreads page for whatever book I’m blogging about.
