Waiting On Wednesday (35) - Insomnia (The Night Walkers #1)

Insomnia by J.R. Johansson
Publication Date: June 8th, 2013
Publisher: Flux
Find on: GoodreadsAmazonB&N
It’s been four years since I slept, and I suspect it is killing me.

Instead of sleeping, Parker Chipp enters the dream of the last person he’s had eye contact with. He spends his nights crushed by other people’s fear and pain, by their disturbing secrets—and Parker can never have dreams of his own. The severe exhaustion is crippling him. If nothing changes, Parker could soon be facing psychosis and even death.

Then he meets Mia. Her dreams, calm and beautifully uncomplicated, allow him blissful rest that is utterly addictive. Parker starts going to bizarre lengths to catch Mia’s eye every day. Everyone at school thinks he’s gone over the edge, even his best friend. And when Mia is threatened by a true stalker, everyone thinks it’s Parker.

Suffering blackouts, Parker begins to wonder if he is turning into someone dangerous. What if the monster stalking Mia is him after all?
After just seeing the cover, this book immediately caught my attention. After reading the synopsis, it didn't just catch my attention, I felt like I NEEDED this!! Entering the dream of the LAST person he's had eye contact with, that sounds SO awesome! It's also from a guy's a POV, so that's gotta be interesting! What do YOU think? - Farah

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we are excited about.
