Waiting on Wednesday: The Nightmare Affair

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

Publisher: Tor Teen
Publish Date: March 12, 2013
Genre: Paranormal
Goodreads Summary: 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.

Why am I waiting on The Nightmare Affair? The premise sounds so original and cool and I love the beautiful, whimsical cover! What books are you waiting on?

Gosh, how do authors come up with awesome story ideas like that? This is the kind of book I've never heard of and then I pick it up after only having read the first two sentences of the synopsis - great idea! Also, I like the cover...(not that I'd judge from the surface...)
