Today we’re hosting a blog tour stop for a goosebumps-raising new YA thriller called INSOMNIA by J.R. Johansson. I’m especially excited about today’s post because J.R. is stopping by herself to tell us about her favorite scary movies! And, as an added bonus, she’s giving away ten first-ten-pages critiques. How cool is that?
Here’s INSOMNIA’s book description:
Her eyes saved his life. Her dreams released his darkness.
After four years of sleeplessness, high school junior Parker Chipp can’t take much more. Every night, instead of sleeping, he enters the dreams of the last person he’s made eye contact with. If he doesn’t sleep soon, Parker will die.
Then he meets Mia. Her dreams, calm and beautifully uncomplicated, allow him blissful rest that’s utterly addictive. But what starts out as a chance meeting turns into an obsession; Parker’s furious desire for what he needs pushes him to extremes he never thought he’d go. And when someone begins terrorizing Mia with twisted death threats, Parker’s memory blackouts leave him doubting his own innocence.
Now, here’s some more information about the amazing author:
J.R. JOHANSSON is a young adult thriller author published with Flux & FSG/Macmillan. Her debut, INSOMNIA, is coming June 2013. She has a B.S. degree in public relations and a background in marketing. She credits her abnormal psychology minor with inspiring many of her characters. When she’s not writing, she loves reading, playing board games, and sitting in her hot tub. Her dream is that someday she can do all three at the same time. She has two young sons and a wonderful husband. In fact, other than her cat, Cleo, she’s nearly drowning in testosterone.

Those are some great scary movies. (I admit that I can’t watch scary movies without having to sleep with the lights on for a week afterwards.) How about you—do you have a favorite scary movie? If so, feel free to leave J.R. a note in the comments to tell her what your favorite scary movies are.
