Sisteen-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 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. (Summary from Goodreads)

This is a great trailer and the book dropped YESTERDAY! TOO cool! I love this cover too! I am VERY intrigued by all the mystery since it seems to be implying that this boy isn't the actual killer somehow...mysterious...

An exotic treat set in an entirely original, fantastical world brimming with deadly mystery, forbidden romance, and heart-stopping adventure.
Nisha was abandoned at the gates of the City of a Thousand Dolls when she was a child. Now sixteen, she lives on the grounds of the isolated estate, where orphan girls apprentice as musicians, healers, courtesans, and, if the rumors are true, assassins. Nisha makes her was as Matron's assistant, her closest companions the mysterious cats that trail her shadow. Only when she begins a forbidden flirtation with the city's handsome young courier does she let herself imagine a life outside the walls. Until one by one, girls around her start to die.
Before she becomes the next victim, Nisha decides to uncover the secrets that surround the girls' deaths. But by getting involved, Nisha jeopardizes not only her own future in the City of a Thousand Dolls--but her own life. (Summary from Goodreads)

WHOA! This sounds EPIC!! I haven't read a high fantasy in a while...I think it's about time! The trailer isn't that thrilling, but just as beautiful as THAT BEAUTIFUL COVER! I wanted to share this one even though it's been out for a month because people have been RAVING about it who have been reading it, but it's also not getting much hype either! :( So I wanted to give it a bit of hype! :) So go to a libby near you and check it out!
