My Review

If you thought you were having or had sleep issues, as I do, they are not a patch on this women’s!

There is something very addictive about this book that keeps you glued to the pages and keeps you reading. This is the first book I have picked up and actually finished since the corona virus lockdown, so that in it’s self speaks volumes about the book! For some reason I have really struggled with reading throughout this whole pandemic and haven’t been able to focus on a book longer than a page to two, let alone writing a review, so when I picked this book up I didn’t expect to get into it, let alone finish the entire book in a day.

I have had this book on my to be read pile for a while now and I chose to give this one a go today as the page count wasn’t to daunting, as well as sounding like a fascinating plot, obviously 😂 and I finished the book this evening. I throughly enjoyed the whole book and fingers crossed this is the book that has broken my readers block! 🤞🏼

Centred around Becky who has moved miles from home to attend university, it is clear that she is running from something, something major, something devastating, that she is still trying to overcome and reclaim power over her ability to sleep.

As Becky battles with insomnia, strange things start to happen, someone watching her through her bedroom window, mysterious notes left for her in the library, someone calling out her name that she cannot see, is there someone stalking her or is her sleep deprived brain playing tricks on her? What is real and what is all in her own head?

Everything all plays out across the pages, culminating in a twisted conclusion!

If you are a fan of psychological thrillers then this is the perfect read for you.

I Can’t Sleep will be published on 16 October 2020 and is available for pre-order now for the amazing price of £0.99 from Amazon or it is available to read for free via Kindle Unlimited. An amazing book at an amazing price thats not to be missed!
