Waiting On Wednesday #09

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine where we share with everyone upcoming new releases that we're eager to get our hands on! :)

So last week was pretty fun, there was a YA Scavenger hunt going on. Bad news was I didn't win on either team :( haha but the good news was I was, introduced for lack of a better word, to so many new authors I wasn't familiar with yet and got to add quite a few new books to Goodreads! One of which I'm going to spotlight today!!

Insomnia (The Night Walkers #1) by J.R. Johansson
Expected publication: June 8th 2013 by Flux 


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?

Why I'm waiting for it...

Are you kidding me did you read that blurb?? I'm so excited for this book!! And I'm so bummed, I did try to get it on NetGalley but they said "Hahahaha um NO!" Okay, maybe they said it a little bit nicer than that. But it was implied :P It's always hit and miss there. Oh well June will be here ....eventually *Sigh*


  1. Great pick! This one does sound very interesting and pretty creeptastic!

    1. Yeah the creeptastic part excites me. Haven't read one like that in a long time!

      Thanks for stopping by Natalie :)

  2. Oh! I want to read this so effin bad!!! NetGalley laughed at my request, too. :'( I don't need them! Well. Yeah, I kinda do.

    I can be patient a little longer and get my hands on a print copy. :) It's worth buying for that cover alone. Creeepy.... But I love it.

    1. Usually I just sort of shrug and think "oh well" but this one, like you, I wanted so effing bad!!!!!! Stupid publishers. We're awesome Kelly they'll regret this later! :/

      Yep I'll be buying a print as well! Come on June
