So I got a book in the mail yesterday that I honestly forget I ordered. I vaguely remember being up way too late at night browsing Goodreads and I guess I must have bought this book. I am a little worried about my book spending habits. I used to do this all the time, I would buy like 5 books and then forget about 3 of them. Then when they showed up in my mailbox, it felt like getting a surprise gift. I had stopped doing this, but I had a little slip up, and I have to admit it’s still fun getting a surprise book in the mail. I mean at least the book looks like it might be good.
I’m not sure if this is just mildly strange or if I have a serious problem so I was wondering if this ever happens to anyone else? You guys ever buy a book and then completely forget about it until it ends up in your mailbox a few weeks later?
Oh, and if you were wondering, this is the book I forgot I bought:
She could save the world—or destroy it.
Sixteen-year-old Evangeline "Evie" Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future—and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux.
But she can't do either alone.
With his mile-long rap sheet, wicked grin, and bad attitude, Jack is like no boy Evie has ever known. Even though he once scorned her and everything she represented, he agrees to protect Evie on her quest. She knows she can't totally depend on Jack. If he ever cast that wicked grin her way, could she possibly resist him?
Who can Evie trust?
As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of twenty-two teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it's not always clear who is on which side.
