"SOMEONE ELSE WILL
she tells herself.
SOMEONE ELSE WILL DIE,
AND I'LL BE RESPONSIBLE."
A few days after the first time you
walk in your sleep, you kill someone.
That's how the end begins
Emma Montgomery has been having gruesome nightmares. Even worse, when she wakes up, she isn't where she was when she fell asleep. And she's not only the only one. One by one the students of Saint Opportuna High start having the nightmares, and sleepwalking. And the next morning one of their classmates turns up dead.
Something is making them kill in their sleep. Emma and her friends need to band together, to keep themselves awake until they can figure our what's behind the murders—before anyone else dies.
Sleepless was a nail biting, gut wrenching, mystery, with enough twists and turns to make your head spin! I enjoyed reading this new and very hypnotic read yet, i always felt like there was something missing. Yes, it had a great plot and yes, it was kind of freightning but still...i felt like there was just this large gap left un-touched and it really bothered me at the end.
Emma is the typical mousy burnett that you would expect in these "horror books". I hated that. Seriously why is that we burnett's always have to be stuck in this kind of situations when the blondes remain safe and sound in there little cookie cutter homes (no offense to blondes though!)? It's injustice i tell you! And of course she is in love with the handsome-yet-so-out-of-her-league-but-is-still-somehow-attracted-to-her guy...ugh! Really? Come on! Although the plot was interesting and very well thought out the two main characters of the novel are just so typical!
If you ignore the characters and pay more attention to the plot though, it IS kind of cool. All the voodoo and hypnotisim stiff really catches your eye and you definitly want to read more. The deaths are also very creepy which totally makes up for the lack of character originality. I couldn't really come up with a playlist for this book though because unfortunately it didn't inspire me enough:( but if you're looking for a quick and scary read pick up Sleepless and tell me what you think!

Ratings and Difficulty!
Rating: Incredible- A book that I rate as incredible is both captivating and creative! It is highly recommended and a definite must read!
Great- A great book has some bad parts but mostly a bunch of strong points. It is interesting but seems to lag at some points.
So So- A book labeled as So So is not recommended unless you are highly interested in the topic or author. It has a few good parts but a ton of bad parts.
Total Bomb- A book that is a total bomb is not recommended under any circumstances. Usually I like to find the good in every book but a bomb is just a waste of time!
Difficulty: Advanced- Everyone’s reading abilities are different but an advanced book is exactly that…advanced! This may have dialogue from another era or highly developed words.
Normal- A normal book is a book that has everyday dialogue and vocabulary but also may have a few “big words” scattered here or there.
Easy- An easy book has basic vocabulary and can be read by anyone over the age of ten.
