Waiting on Wednesday: Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming releases.

I can't wait to read...

Dreamland by Robert L. Anderson

Release date: September 22nd, 2015
Publisher: Harper Teen
Goodreads link: (click here)

Description from Goodreads:

Odea Donahue has been able to travel through people’s dreams since she was six years old. Her mother taught her the three rules of walking: Never interfere. Never be seen. Never walk the same person’s dream more than once. Dea has never questioned her mother, not about the rules, not about the clocks or the mirrors, not about moving from place to place to be one step ahead of the unseen monsters that Dea’s mother is certain are right behind them.

Then a mysterious new boy, Connor, comes to town and Dea finally starts to feel normal. As Connor breaks down the walls that she’s had up for so long, he gets closer to learning her secret. For the first time she wonders if that’s so bad. But when Dea breaks the rules, the boundary between worlds begins to deteriorate. How can she know what’s real and what’s not?

Why I'm excited:

Oooh! I love books about dream worlds! Maybe it's because I grew up on Freddy Krueger. Dreamland sounds like a good, creepy mystery. I love the idea of dream walking because there is so much room for creativity since nothing is limited to what's possible in the real world, and when the dream world starts to enter into reality...well, that can only get very interesting! 

I admit that it was the cool cover that made me stop and take notice, but once I read what it was about...

 I jumped for joy...

What are you waiting to read?
