This is just going to be quick post today, but at least it’s a post (Content! YES!) Anyway, as I’m sure you’re probably guessing from the title, I must have some book mail for you all to see.
And I do.
First, before I get to the book, I just want to take the time to thank Bookish HQ for allowing me the opportunity to enter for a chance to win a physical copy of this book from their website, and I’d like to thank both the publisher and the author for actually sending me not just the book, but some goodies, too. I mean, my goody bag isn’t as elaborate as I’ve seen others on Instagram, but the fact that I even got something else in the package besides the novel, no matter how small, makes me a very happy woman.
So thank you. You have no idea how much it’s appreciated.
I’m sure you’re all chomping at the bit by now, waiting to see what book I received in the mail today, and the small amount of goodies that came with it. Without further ado:
– the book, The Red Ledger Reborn, Vol. 1 by Meredith Wild
– 2 pens: skinny, silver one with title; thicker red one with author
– sticker that says, “Team Wild”
– bookmark: “she is your memory. she is your miracle.”
– thank-you postcard from the author
. . . . .
I haven’t even started reading this book yet, and already I’m excited for it. This first volume, according to Goodreads, is released August 7, 2018, so it looks like I will be reading this sooner than planned, and I am a-okay with that. There are three parts in this book, and judging by the markers, neither part looks to be particular long, but it’s kind of a thick book, so I guess I’ll find out soon.
Y’all probably want to know what the synopsis is, so here you go:
He’s death for hire…
Some people measure life in hours. Days. Weeks. I measure mine in kills. A covert military mission gone wrong robbed me of my memory and any link to my past. This is my existence now. I execute and survive. Nothing more, nothing less. I was ready to write Isabel Foster’s name in my ledger of unfortunate souls until she uttered the one word that could stop the bullet meant for her. My name.
She knows my face. She knows me. She’s the key to the memories I’m not sure I want back. Now nothing is simple. I still have a job to do, and my soul isn’t worth saving. I’m not the man she thinks I am. I can’t love her. And sparing her life puts us both in the crosshairs.
What really grabbed my attention was probably the assassin plot because I love assassins, I love morally gray characters, in general, as well as any Crime/Thriller/Mystery novel, so I’ll say it again: I am so excited for this book.
If, somehow, you’re unsure just how excited I am, I think this is a pretty accurate .gif.

Until next time,
