Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It lets us all gush about what soon-to-be released books we are jumping-up-and-down excited for.
Dream Boy
by Madelyn Rosenberg & Mary Crockett
hitting shelves July 1st, 2014 from Sourcebooks Fire
Annabelle Manning feels like she’s doing time at her high school in Chilton, Virginia. She has her friends at her lunchtime table of nobodies. What she doesn’t have are possibilities. Or a date for Homecoming. Things get more interesting at night, when she spends time with the boy of her dreams. But the blue-eyed boy with the fairytale smile is just that—a dream. Until the Friday afternoon he walks into her chemistry class.

One of friends suspects he’s an alien. Another is pretty sure it’s all one big case of deja vu. While Annabelle doesn’t know what to think, she’s willing to believe that the charming Martin Zirkle may just be her dream come true. But as Annabelle discovers the truth behind dreams—where they come from and what they mean—she is forced to face a dark reality she had not expected. More than just Martin has arrived in Chilton. As Annabelle learns, if dreams can come true, so can nightmares.
My Thoughts:  So many reasons to want this---gorgeous cover, that tagline gives me the shivers, and I love stories that are centered around dreams.  Can't wait for this one!


  1. I have to say, this made it on my tbr list a few weeks ago after I heard about it on someone else's WoW and it does sound absolutely fantastic! I've even tried to request it so far, so I'm waiting on that. I hope you get your hands on a copy soon though :)

  6. I'm loving this cover both the tree and the font, but I'm always weary about books where the protagonist "dreams" about a boy (or girl) who turns out to exist.That said, I'm definitely curious. Great pick!
