ARC Envy (2)


Every week several of my favorite bloggers post vlogs or posts of all the great book hauls they've received for the week. Since I'm a tiny little fish in the huge book blogging pond, my mailbox isn't stuffed with all the great ARCs that they get. Dana's ARC Envy is my way of highlighting an ARC that I *wish* had been sent to me too. 




TitleInsomnia (The Night Walkers #1)
Author: J.R. Johansson (website)(Twitter)
Publisher: Flux (website)(Twitter)
Expected Publication Date: June 8, 2013

Judging a book by its cover: This cover is seriously frightening and I LOVE IT! 

Know anything about the author?  Nope but she looks too sweet to make people scared.

Why do I want it? The cover would make me pick it up without even knowing a synopsis but the storyline sounds mega interesting. He goes into the dreams of the last person he made eye contact with? Awesome concept.


Summary from Goodreads:

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?

What ARC are you envying this week?

  3. I REEEEALLY liked this book. I didn't get an ARC, but my preordered copy did ship significantly earlier than the actual release date, so I was lucky enough to get my review up early. I hope you get the chance to read this soon, and that you love it!! :D
