This week, I am eagerly waiting on:

Insomnia by J.R. Johansson
(no cover yet)
Publisher: Flux
Genre: Paranormal, Young Adult
Publication Date: TBA 2013
Sixteen-year-old Parker spends every night trapped in the dreams of the last person he made eye contact with, and it’s killing him. He misses soccer practice, falls asleep at the wheel, and his mom thinks he has a drug problem. His exhaustion from never reaching the deeper levels of sleep is getting worse every day, and he knows his time is running out. Until he meets Mia.

Mia’s dreams are the first Parker’s encountered where he can finally get real sleep. A good night of rest after so long is addictive. He has to have it. But getting it means he must follow Mia and find a way to make eye contact every day. Mia is increasingly freaked out, even turning Parker’s best friends against him. To make matters worse, Mia starts to receive threatening e-mails, and her wonderful dreams become scenes of a horror movie—and Parker is cast as the villain. He must discover who is truly tormenting her, and clear his name, before she turns him in for a crime he hasn’t committed–or worse, the true stalker makes good on his threats to end her dreams forever.

I usually wait until a book has a cover before I post it as my WOW pick, but I met the author this past weekend at the Utah Blogger Social (I'll post about that later) and after I looked her book up, I was way too excited about it. It sounds so unique and cool! Maybe even a bit strange, but that's what draws me to it. I can't wait for this one!

What are you waiting on?
