Waiting on Wednesday *17*

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where book bloggers get together and spotlight what upcoming release we're most excited about!

So I'm back this week after a mini WoW hiatus last week to feature what book I'm excited about.  Now I know that technically this book is available now on Netgalley and it may or may not make an appearance later this week in my StS post ( it totally will!!) *ahem*...anyways here's what I'm waiting on:

The Nightmare Affair 

Release Date: March 5th 2013

Author: Mindee Arnett 


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



A human nightmare - how cool and totally unique is that?!  Right with that little bit of information I was hooked.  The added frosting on the cake in the form of a murder-mystery involving a hot boy just sweetened an already delicious package.  I can't wait to learn more about Arkwell Academy and the rest of magickind that Miss Mindee Arnett has cooked up for us.  I want to be reading this book.  Now!  

PS -Thanks to my cake metaphor, I'm totally craving hauling up for a day with this book & a huge cheesecake!  Curse my food-addled brain >.<


What is everyone else waiting on this week?

  8. I don't have to wait for this anymore! I somehow managed to get approve for it on Netgalley!! Can't wait to start it. The main character/her supernatural type reminds me of Sabine from the Soul Screamers novels.
