There are some books you mark your calender to remind yourself of the release date. BLACKBIRDS by Chuck Wendig is one of them.
I've read Chuck's blog for a while now, and ever since I heard him talk about the premise for the book I've been frothing at the mouth to read it. Here's the blurb:
Miriam Black knows when you will die.
Still in her early
twenties, she's foreseen hundreds of car crashes, heart attacks,
strokes, suicides, and slow deaths by cancer. But when Miriam hitches a
ride with truck driver Louis Darling and shakes his hand, she sees that
in thirty days Louis will be gruesomely murdered while he calls her
Miriam has given up trying to save people; that only makes
their deaths happen. But Louis will die because he met her, and she will
be the next victim. No matter what she does she can't save Louis. But
if she wants to stay alive, she'll have to try.
So yeah...frothing at the mouth. I've always loved the idea of someone seeing the future and being unable to stop it (I actually have a book in the making about just that), and I love the twist that Wendig's put on it.
You know you're intrigued too! Run, don't walk to your nearest bookstore or bookstore web page and order the book now!
