“Waiting” on Wednesday: The Nightmare Affair

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to spotlight upcoming releases that we are excited for.

The Nightmare Affair by Mindee Arnett

Hardcover: 352 pages
Publication date: March 5th, 2013
Publisher: Tor Teen
Add on: Goodreads

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


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

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! To embrace the spooky side, this week’s WoW is the Nightmare Affair! It’s sounds awesomely spooky, dream jumping and killer-catching and murder-solving! March is too far away!
Ps. Tell me what did you guys/what are you guys dressing up as for Halloween this year? I went as Mickey Mouse from Fantasia (: I love getting costume ideas!

  1. I’ve seen this one around a few times lately, great pick! Thanks for sharing! My pick ended up being a pretty good pick for Halloween as well though it was unintentional. ^.^ If you would like to check out my Waiting On Wednesday you can do so here. 🙂

    1. I think a lot of people are excited for this book haha
      Nice! Don’t you just love it when things just work out so nicely?

  2. I am absolutely dying for this one!! I love the concept of a nightmare as an actual character! Great pick!

    1. Me too! I also hope there’s some nice cute awkward girl/boy stuff too, to balance out the scary stuff haha.

  3. We do not celebrate Halloween in my country (Serbia) so no dressing up for me. 🙂 But as a teen I once went with my friends on a costume party and we dressed up like a wedding party – it was hilarious. Bride was pregnant, groom tried to sneak and run away all the time, the father of the bride was drunk and constantly hugged random people. It was chaos. 😀 We all kept improvising all the time and had a lot of fun. So when you have a couple of friend, I recommend trying to do a themed costumes, I bet you will have fun too.

    Happy Halloween to you!
    Oh, and nice pick. 🙂

    1. That sounds like tons of fun, I will have to steal that idea sometime! I love big group costumes! My friends and I have done Disney princesses, Alice in Wonderland and last year we did The Magic School bus and we even made a giant cardboard bus haha.
