Summary from Goodreads:
What’s your worst nightmare?
For Ivy Jensen, it’s the eyes of a killer that haunt her nights. For Parker Bradley, it’s bloodthirsty sea serpents that slither in his dreams.
And for seven essay contestants, it’s their worst nightmares that win them an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at director Justin Blake’s latest, confidential project. Ivy doesn’t even like scary movies, but she’s ready to face her real-world fears. Parker’s sympathetic words and perfect smile help keep her spirits up. . . at least for now.
Not everyone is so charming, though. Horror-film fanatic Garth Vader wants to stir up trouble. It’s bad enough he has to stay in the middle of nowhere with this group—the girl who locks herself in her room; the know-it-all roommate; “Mister Sensitive”; and the one who’s too cheery for her own good. Someone has to make things interesting.
Except, things are already a little weird. The hostess is a serial-killer look-alike, the dream-stealing Nightmare Elf is lurking about, and the seventh member of the group is missing.
By the time Ivy and Parker realize what’s really at stake, it’s too late to wake up and run.
Reasons why I want this book:
1) AUTHOR: Laurie Faria Stolarz can write some really creepy stuff. Her Touch series? Amazing, but very very creepy. She's the perfect horror writer, and I cannot wait to see what new things she brings to Welcome to the Dark House.
2) GENRE: I secretly have a weakness for horror novels. Although they scare the poop out of me and then I have trouble sleeping for days after.
3) PLOT/SUMMARY: This is a very interesting and original idea, and just the summary gives me the shivers ;)
4) COVER: This is a moment of COVER LOVE. <3 Creepy, thrilling, suspenseful, PERFECT.
Give to me please? Please? Please?
