Waiting On Wednesday: Insomnia

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blogging event hosted by Breaking the Spine, in which one spotlights an upcoming release they are eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Insomnia (The Night Walkers, #1)

Title: Insomnia (The Night Walkers #1)
Author: J.R. Johansson
Release Date: June 8, 2013
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?

Why I'm Looking Forward To It: I'm always interested in books about dreams, and this one sounds all sorts of creepy and awesome. And who doesn't love a good stalker character? ;) I mean, c'mon, don't you want to know what "bizarre lengths" Parker goes to? Definitely excited for this one.

Update: I will be taking part in Insomnia's blog tour! Look for my post in early June. :)
