This is a blog meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine to spotlight upcoming books. This week's can't wait to read selection is:
Blackbirds by Chuck Wendig
Publisher: Angry Robot
Date: April 24, 2012
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 name.
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.
I featured this book previously on the strength of its cover, but I find that I am just as attracted to the story. I really, truly can't wait for this one.
