Waiting on Wednesday #4

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're excitably anticipating.

Dream boy by Madelyn Rosenberg & Mary Crockett

Dream Boy

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.

Expected publication: July 1st by Sourcebooks Fire

My thoughts:

I think this sounds really interesting and the dream aspect has me intrigued. I do judge a book by its cover and might not have picked it up if I hadn't read the blurb as I am not too keen on the cover!


  1. The cover isn't all that amazing, but it is a good read though. I just finished it. :) Great pick.

  2. Awesome pick! I'm actually totally crushing on the cover. I think the text is splendidly minimalistic. And the summary sounds very promising! I'm definitely adding it to my to-read list.

    Thanks for sharing! :D
