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.

This is a very refreshing premise for me in YA. Though it sounds a little bit like the movies Inception and Monster's Inc, I couldn't wait to know how this story would be told and how much I would like or dislike it. It really sounds awesome!

What did you pick this week?

    I definitely have to add it to my TBR pile. It has a different premise from the things I usually read, but it still sounds interesting. :D
    Thanks for dropping by the blog! (btw, you HAVE to read the Iron Fey series-it's technically finished, HAHA. Definitely worth it-even through the cliffhangers)

  15. Ohhh I love books that have magical schools! This one sounds a bit like Hex Hall which I really liked, so I'm definitely adding it to my TBR pile. And I'm super interested in how Dusty is a Nightmare, I agree that it's a new kind of paranormal! Thanks for following and stopping by our blog. :)
