The Nightmare Affair by 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.


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."

Yes, I know, I technically didn't make it to the week cutoff. But hey, birthday weekend. Free pass. And it won't happen again; I now have blissful freedom for much of the summer. But this review's gonna be short, sorry. In a nutshell: I really enjoyed the book. It was kinda quirky, played around with new ideas I hadn't seen before, and was nicely paced and written. The characters were likable and relatable. All in all, there's not much to dislike; it was definitely a good book. It's at Kettleson, you should check it out.
