Waiting on Wednesday: The Nightmare Affair

The Nightmare Affair
Author: Mindee Arnett
Publisher: Tor Teen
Expected Publication: 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.

My Thoughts:
Wait...Dusty is a nightmare?! I have not seen this premise or supernatural being used in YA and I feel like that says something. It is probably the reason I am pining after this book and it doesn't even come out until March of 2013! The cover also is really reminiscent of Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan (which I LOVED) so I am double excited ^^


  1. This sounds really good. Great pick. :)

  2. There is a mara nightmare in the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent! That is why I want to read this. A very interesting supernatural being so I'm curious how this author might handle it. Great pick!
    My WOW

  3. The last time I can remember reading about a Night Mare is in Piers Anthony's Xanth series, and that was a looooooong time ago. Looking forward to this one too!

  4. This does sound interesting!
    Thanks for sharing,

  5. Sounds really good! I hadn't heard of this book before. The idea of Dusty being a Nightmare really make me want to read it. Great pick!
    My WOW

  6. Interesting! I love the premise of this one ... and the cover is gorgeous!

    Awesome pick!

  7. Lotto games and dominoes appeared in China as early as the 10th century. "That really is going to have an effect on} how people put their money on games," he stated. "Just should stay with that and hope can have sufficient respect for each other to not goal particular areas." He is pressured to borrow from his fiancée, then his mother, and lastly, some evil men after shedding all of his money. Well, this wouldn’t be the case if he gambled at prime safe and authorized casinos that BestAuCasinosOnline picked for you. Kuchar won at Mayakoba in 2018, a victory most remembered for what he paid an area caddie that week.
