This one was definitely better than the first and I think I give that credit to Jacob - who is by far the best character to come out of this series so far. I like how the author kept him very secretive literally up until the last minute. I don't think there was really one thing I didn't like about him.

Now, as for everyone else...I like PJ, he's entertaining and always good for a laugh. Amber, I really just don't get. Chad - no comment. Drea - hmph...bitch and worst friend ever (I don't think my...more

What would you do if one of your friends has really bad nightmares and suffering from that all night? Stacey Brown is the one who has really bad nightmares and can predict the future. A year before, Stacey Brown had saved her best friend, Drea, from a death through the nightmares. Now, she is having nightmares again about something. One day, she meet guy named Jacob. And he said he is from Colorado and having nightmares about Stacey so he moved to here, where Stacey lives, to save her. First tim...more

Great book. Gives a lot of interesting details about spells and so separates itself from other teen books with an unusually gifted teenager. Loved the inclusion of Jacob. The book wraps you up in its mystery so that you're racing to get to the end, just like the first one. The killer's easier to pick out in this one than in the first book, though.

The one thing I have a beef with is that being a Christian, I hate seeing God's name uncapitalized. If an author doesn't believe in God and doesn't wan...more

I ABSOLUTELY love this series but in this book
Stacy needs to get a grip and stop being so Damn selfish. I mean really if she would stop trying to figure out every little detail to her nightmares she could try to actually figure out hte big picture! And is she trying to completely ruin any chances she has at a normal life? Every single time she gets into a fight with Chad and Drea she storms off, more concerned with saving her own butt when she has completely no idea who's trying to kill her. Sh...more

I thought this book is really interesting. This book is the second book of the Blue is for Nightmares series. I thought this book was good because of where the story took place and it was really similar to the first book so I knew that I would like this book. Even though it wasn't as good as the first book, I still liked it because of all the twist and turns in the book. It made the book more interesting and really captures me into it like that.

The 2nd book in the "Blue Is For Nightmares" series, this one was really a carbon copy of the first.

Once again, I enjoyed Stacey's holistic approach to magic in contrast to other stories where the magic isn't always used toward good purpose. She even meets another white witch in this book, a nice touch.

What bothered me was that the plot was so similar to the previous book, even down to the group of students wanting to recreate events from last year. I can't help thinking Ms. Stolarz was rather c...more

One stalker down, another to go. A nice sequel to Blue is for Nightmares, you can really see Stacey growing as a character as she meets new people, new things happen, and her love life even starts to bloom again. A nice merge of magic, mystery, and that little touch of romance.

I can't even start how great this book is it was so shocking and it had mysteries. The characters in this book are Stacey,Amber,chad,PJ,Drea and Jacob. Stacey just had finished having nightmares about people last year. But then suddenly Stacey starts throwing up in her sleep and her boyfriend Chad they been going out for a year. He was really worried about her but Stacey then knew that it was happening all over again. Stacey usually has dreams about saving other people from being killed but this...more

Loved the beginning and the end. It made me sit on the edge of my seat while I was on a roadtrip on the way to Idaho, and finished it in about 7 hours. With every other chapter there was a question to mind. Really scared me on some parts. I was imagining corpse party scenes while the nightmares were happening. I didnt read any of the previous books of this series because I didnt know there were any. But I would like to read them. I buy books at thrift shops because I feel like they hold more mea...more

knowing how to do spells can draw power, but it can also draw in love.

Fangirl squeals throughout the whole time!. Tripped out A LOT since I read this at night. In the dark. *Chills* Really got my heart pumping, crazy-awesome!.

Really liked the story line. The past, present, and future clashes all together and come into question. What is happening? Why it's happening? What is real and what is not? Stacy cannot answer these questions without the help of her friends and mother, and add in a mysterious new face boy. Is he telling the truth? Can she trust him? Stacy alr...more

While all this is happening she soon becomes in contact with the new student Jacob. He is a complete mystery to her and now has to deal with her conflicting feeli...more

The characters in this book are Stacey, Drea, Amber, Jacob, and Chad. Stacey and Chad have been going out for almost a year, but things aren't looking too good for their future. Drea and Amber are Stacey's two best friends. Amber is the funky type. She dresses and acts how she wants. But Drea on the other hand is much different. Her and Chad used to go out, but she still has feelings for him. Lastly, Jacob is a witch, just like Stacey. He came from Colorado to help Stacey because he knew that sh...more

The Blue Is For Nightmares Series is one of my favorite series, because it is very exciting and I always wonder what will happen next. White Is For Magic, which is the second book of the series, is AMAZING! It is also very suspensful, which I love, especially if you read this book at night! If you read this book, you will become addicted to finding out what will happen next! The events that happen are always shocking and unpredictable, so as I said, you are always excited to find out what will h...more

White is For Magic is the sequel to Blue is For Nightmares. In this one, Stacey is having dreams again, like the ones she had about Drea. Only this time, they’re about her. She’s still dating Chad, but she falls for a mysterious new student named Jacob that wants to talk to her because he’s a witch too, and he thinks he can help Stacey with her nightmares.

In the book, the man molested Maura and got put in jail. Stacey was young and thought it would be smart to send him a letter saying she would...more

I picked up White is for Magic because I read Blue is for Nightmare in the fall. I liked Blue is for Nightmare. It was entertaining, but I really didn't care one way or another for the characters. I felt like it was trying too hard. I only picked up the other books in the series because my students were reading Blue is for Nightmare like mad. And the other books have sat in the bag from B&N on my office floor since October. The only reason they have resurfaced is for a reading challenge I'm...more

The book only took a few days to read, not because of depth or because of length but rather for time. Once you get reading it has a tendency to hook you into it and want to finish it. To know why, who, where, when, it's the mystery type of novel. I was impressed by how it stuck to the teenage girl mind and that it actually sounded like a 16-17 year old girl. There were times where the writing seemed a little mature, yet it kept me reading.

It is the second book in the Laurie Faria Stolarz series...more

I liked this book a lot. While I may have loved the plot of the first book more, I was just glad there was no bedwetting in this one. Of course, instead Stacey is puking all over the place this time. Still kinda gross, especially when the phrase 'puke spooge' is used on page 2. But I have to say the constant upchucking was loads better than Stacey always pissing her pants.

I felt like this book wasn't as creepy as the first. In this one, Stacey is getting weird letters saying that she's going to...more

Maybe I shouldn't be reviewing this book, since it's clearly meant for young adults, and I don't think I qualify anymore. However, since this was the kind of book I used to go for at that age, I decided to give it a read and see what I thought now.

I'm normally still a huge fan of young adult books. I still relate to a lot of them, though this one, not so much. And it was surprising, because I like the idea of a paranormal book of magic for high school kids. And this book did have a nice writing...more

After reading "Blue is for Nightmares" I decided to try the second book in the series, "White is for Magic." I mean the bed wetting was specific to the situation in the first book and that was my only real complaint. BUT… once again I was annoyed. In this book Stacey is puking all the time. Also relevant to the story like the bed wetting but still! I am reluctant to read the rest of the series because I just don’t know how many more bodily fluids I want to read about this girl secreting. Once ag...more

Ik vond dit best een goed boek, maar niet fantastisch. Het was mij aangeraden door een vriendin en zij vond het een kei goed verhaal, dat was de enige reden dat ik het boek tot het einde had doorgelezen...

Ik heb het eerst niet gelezen, het kan zijn dat dat de reden is dat ik het niet zo wauw vond?

Wel was het op een heel goede manier geschreven, het verhaal werd uitgelegd zodat je eigenlijk zonder het eerste boek, toch weet wat er gebeurd is.

This is the second book in the Blue is for Nightmares series by Stolarz. I thought that this book was a bit better than the first book. This book does follow in the same vein as the first book in that is weaves creepy story that keeps you on the edge of your seat and keeps you guessing.

It is the start of the new school year and Stacey is having nightmares again. Only for reason these nightmares are about people who have died in her past. Stacey figures out that this time it is her life on the li...more

The second book is BLUE IS FOR NIGHTMARES series is the best one yet. Not only was this book filled with action, but there was romance in here as well. Meet Jacob. He's a witch just like Stacey and I loved the chemistry between the two.

At first when the nightmares come back to Stacey and the creepy messages, I was getting worried that it was Jacob. The furhter I read into the book, the more I fell in love with him and the less I wanted him to turn out the evil one. But a spolier is involved, so...more
