Sleepless - Terri Clark


It had been 48 hours
since I'd last slept.


Summary (from back of book):

I can't go to sleep. And not because of the cute boy lying next to me.

There's a killer stalking me in my dreams. And if it's up to him. . . I'll never wake up. I have to find a way to get him, before he gets me.

Review:

Where can I even begin about this book? It was really good. It was a quick read, it was quick to get into, and once I started reading it, I couldn't stop. I didn't want to put this down because I needed to know what happened to Trinity and Dan.

The characters were written pretty good. The one thing I would've liked more of was a bigger description of them, but the author gives you enough information to where you can picture them in your head.

There were also a few parts that were a bit hard to understand, so I had to go back and re-read them. Once I went back and re-read them, however, they made more sense to me than they did the first time through.

The idea of the book was something I've never heard or read about, so Terri Clark definitely gets extra points for originality and creativity.

Overall, Sleepless was a wonderful, quick read that will leave you hanging until the end.

I've gone three days without sleeping... not fun. Sounds like a really good book.

Gabbi said...

I wish it had a better cover...I know the old line "don't judge a book by it's cover," but doesn't the cover just make it look like a cheap romance or something??

Emily said...

Mmm, I agree with Gabbi. And I also don't like it when a book ends and leaves me hanging..

Laina -- I couldn't go that long without sleeping lol. You should see me after having to stay up late because I procrastinated about a project or something. It's kinda funny, lol.

Gabbi -- It does make it look like a cheap romance, now that you say it.. (and it's okay, even though you're not supposed to, who doesn't judge a book by its cover?)

Emily -- It didn't really leave you hanging too much. I actually kind of liked the open ending in this one. It was open, but not too open, like Bliss was. I didn't like that ending at all.

The Book Obsession -- lol. You'll like it, it's really good. :]

hope.

I really want to read this one! But I agree with Gabbi-the cover is deceiving, and makes it look cheap and trashy!

I've seen this book on a lot of blogs, but I haven't read the synopsis until now. Sounds good!
