Blue is for Nightmares

Blue is for Nightmares

I know your secret...

Stacey Brown has lots of secrets-her crush on her best friend Drea's boyfriend, the spells she casts, and the nightmares that come true. Now she's dreaming about Drea and a psycho stalker. Saving Drea will take all the magic and courage Stacey's got. And everyone's secrets will have to come out.

What soes this remind you of... Harry Potter? Even slightly at least? The spells, and the secret of the nightmares that come true. Stacey is... oh maybe a form of superstitious.

Stacey is then debating whether to tell Drea about the nightmares or not. She keeps having flashbacks to the time before... the little girl. It was this young girl she had been babysitting and then began having nightmares about. After these nightmares, the girl was kidnappeed.

Of course she can't let this happened to her friend, but what will Drea think of her when she lets her in on the message of her nightmares?

Blue is for nightmares, has so many different types of book genres in it, I find it hard to categorize it as a single one. One theme of the book has to do with working with your enemies, and telling your friend's the truth. Nothing good comes from keeping secrets about people from them... right? Everything, from judgements to relationships seem to be questioned.

Even though I didn't read this book too recently, I still enjoyed it. You were always on the edge... "what what what was gonna happen next?!?!" This was good-of course it is when books keep your interest!-yet I flew through it in a couple days! Good thing there are a bunch more books in this series...

There were definitely parts in the book that were, lets just say, very descriptive and a tiny bit cheesy. Luckily it made up for it with details and a good plot.

The rest of the series...
