Insomnia
Insomnia | Sarah Pinborough
In this twisty, mind-bending thriller from the bestselling author of Behind Her Eyes, Emma Averell worries that her crippling insomnia is a sign that she's slowly going insane--like the mother she's worked so hard to leave in her past. Emma Averell loves her life--her high-powered legal career, her two beautiful children, and her wonderful stay-at-home husband--but it wasn't always so perfect. When she was just five years old, Emma and her older sister went into foster care because of a horrific incident with their mother. Her sister can remember a time when their mother was loving and "normal," but Emma can only remember her as one thing--a monster. And that monster emerged right around their mother's fortieth birthday, the same age Emma is approaching now. Emma desperately wants to keep her successful life separate from her past, so she has always hidden her childhood trauma. But then she's unable to sleep, and now losing time during the day, also one of the first symptoms her mother showed. Is the madness in her blood, just as her mother predicted? Could she end up hurting her family in her foggy, frenetic state? Or is she truly beginning to lose her mind?

3/5⭐

"A suspenful thriller with a great twist."

Emma believes she has a curse. At her 40th birthday, she is a fraud she'll go mad like her mother and aunt. A few days before as birthday, she can't sleep, stares outside her window and whispers random numbers to herself. Strange events start happening.
She can't help but ask herself if she's going mad or if someone is coming to get her?

My May reads. Most of them were arcs. My favorite was The Lost Girls of Willowbrook. Hear my thoughts on TikTok at suzzereadsalot

I enjoyed this book. The action really starts to pick up towards the end. There was a plot thread that I thought was underdeveloped at the end of the book as well. I wasn't sympathetic towards a lot of the characters, but still found the book interesting.

AmandaBlaze Meant this do this as a Review, not a Blurb. It is a Pick. 1mo

Emma‘s mother had a sudden breakdown at age 40 that has strongly affected Emma‘s life, leading her to worry about the same thing happening to her. Forty is approaching, and her insomnia is tying her in knots, especially when frightening things start to occur. I felt the tension was built well and I guessed whodunit but still enjoyed the ride, but I have a couple quibbles. A low pick for me.

I didn‘t like this one nearly as much as I thought I would. It was so repetitive and felt like it could have gotten to the big reveals of the story a lot quicker than it did. That being said I really enjoyed the wrap up of the story and what was really going on during the earlier slow unraveling. The last two pages were a little confusing - not sure what the point was - but without it I liked the ending. 🌟🌟🌟

⭐⭐⭐⭐
(Book 10 of 2022)

Intensity x1,000
? You REALLY want to believe she's being set up but MAN does she look crazy!! ? This was a wild ride of guessing. I did eventually guess part of the ending but the author threw in an explanation for it that I was NOT expecting, because I've never seen it done in a thriller. It works though and gives you something to chew on afterwards like "hm, what if??"

Thank you Sarah Pinborough!! 👏🏻 👏🏻 Best book that I‘ve read in awhile now! I read it in 2 days, and I haven‘t managed to do that in forever either, with this slump that I‘ve been in.

I kinda have a love/hate thing with this book. It started out strong. Real page turner and then. A little past half way…not so much the page turner. It almost reads as if she put in all effort at the beginning but was kinda lost on how to end it. And the ending didn‘t do the beginning any justice it was just that an ending. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #readingchallenge2022

JHSiess Precisely. Felt like she wrote herself into a corner she couldn't get out of 2mo

Sarah, a successful lawyer and mother, is struggling with insomnia and weird things keep happening. She is not sure if she is losing it or if someone else is setting her up. The story is entertaining and I enjoyed it for the most part, but it lost me some with the ending. A good thriller has to have a strong ending and and it has to be somewhat believable but the ending of this one lacked a bit of that. It thus dropped to 3.5 stars from a 4.

Very good. Another great book by Sarah Pinborough. Even though the chapters were quite short it didn't hamper the strong storyline. Love how this book keeps you guessing till the very end.

It might just be my mood but I kind of got annoyed with Emma. I understand the frustration of not sleeping but how she spoke to and how she treated her husband was not great.
It was an interesting premise but I feel like this has been over done at this point. Emma is creeping up on her 40th birthday and she‘s showing signs of repeating the past of her mother with her sink into insanity. 🌟🌟🌟✨
