Sleepless – Louise Mumford


Don’t close your eyes. Don’t fall asleep. Don’t let them in.

Thea is an insomniac; she hasn’t slept more than three hours a night for years.

So when an ad for a sleep trial that promises to change her life pops up on her phone, Thea knows this is her last chance at finding any kind of normal life.

Soon Thea’s sleeping for longer than she has in a decade, and awakes feeling transformed. So much so that at first she’s willing to overlook the oddities of the trial – the lack of any phone signal; the way she can’t leave her bedroom without permission; the fact that all her personal possessions are locked away, even her shoes.

But it soon becomes clear that the trial doesn’t just want to help Thea sleep. It wants to control her sleep…


This book was a quick and fast paced read. I was interested from the very dramatic beginning.

It was an original story line (at least to me)… it was eerily creepy and could 100% be believable!

I immediately warmed to Thea as a character and became more and more interested in her as the story developed. Willing her to succeed every step of the way.

I enjoyed going on this journey with her but did find myself losing interest towards the end a little and wasn’t overjoyed with how it ended although it did leave itself open for a sequel…
