What's new on my shelf... Pretty Dark Nothing

Hello :)
Yesterday night I started a new book. And I am already hooked. I did not expect to like this book so much. In fact it has been a long time, a few months, since I last enjoyed reading so much and felt that pressure to find out how it ends, to continue on till the end.

Summary: It’s been twenty three days since Quinn has slept for more than minutes at a time. Demons have invaded her dreams, stalking her, and teasing of her death. The lack of sleep and crippling fear are ruining her life. Energy drinks and caffeine pills don’t make a dent. When Quinn dozes off in the school hallway, Aaron, an amnesiac with a psychic ability, accidentally enters her nightmare. The demons are determined to keep them apart, and Aaron from discovering the secret locked away in his memory. Together, they could banish the darkness back to the underworld for good. That is, unless the demons kill them first.

At first I considered it a rather light read, wich is kind of strange since it's not a light story. Maybe that's just because I enjoy reading it so much. I can connect with the charactes and their feelings of despair. I am in some kind of a really black hole right now myself, feeling like my life is spinning out of control. Once again I turn to books to help me through the hard times. And I am more than glad that this book helped me see that again.

My favourite quote so far:

"Nightfall had stolen all the light in the world, leaving the sky pitch black. No moon. No stars. Strong currents churned around her legs, and goose bumps covered her flesh. She hugged herself, rubbing her bare arms in a futile attempt to keep warm as the bitter wind bit her face and whipped her hair into a million dancing strands."

See? Definitely not a light read!
Do you want to read this one? I defintely recommend it! It will be published April 23, aka in three days!
Special thanks to the publisher Month9Books who approved my request via Netgalley.

The Review is definitely coming soon!
Love and Words
