Honestly now, have you ever forgotten a book that you’ve already read? It can’t just be me!
I was browsing through Goodreads on a quest for an interesting read (it doesn’t matter that I have over a 100 books in my to-read list). I came upon Kelly Meding’s Three Days to Dead (Worry not, I shall include the summary below).
The book cover and summary evoked a sense of familiarity within me. I was convinced I had read it before. However, it was in neither my to-read list nor my read list in Goodreads. The next place to look at was my folder. I keep in it a compiled list of all my to-read books and books that I have finished.
To my surprise, I found Three Days to Dead on my to-read list. I started reading it and every three words in, this annoying voice in my head shouted, you’ve already read this!
14 pages in and I was absolutely convinced that I’ve read this book before. What I wasn’t sure of was the ending–did I finish reading this book or not? I cannot for the life of me recall how the story concluded. I hardly put a book away unfinished but it has happened before.
Now, the solution would be to read the book again–ending and all. Simple, right? Nope. Do you have any idea how distracting it is to have a voice in your head constantly go, you’ve read this, you’ve read this, you’ve read this, when you’re reading?
What I am going to do is, I am going to shamelessly ask you, if you’ve read this book that is, to spoil it for me. To all the beautiful souls out there who’ve read Kelly Meding’s Three Days to Dead: Please tell me how it ended and let me rest in peace!
Goodreads Insert: They’ll never see her coming. . . .
When Evangeline Stone wakes up naked and bruised on a cold slab at the morgue—in a stranger’s body, with no memory of who she is and how she got there—her troubles are only just beginning. Before that night she and the two other members of her Triad were the city’s star bounty hunters, mercilessly cleansing the city of the murderous creatures living in the shadows, from vampires to shape-shifters to trolls. Then something terrible happened that not only cost all three of them their lives but also convinced the city’s other Hunters that Evy was a traitor—and she can’t even remember what it was.
Now she’s a fugitive, piecing together her memory, trying to deal some serious justice—and discovering that she has only three days to solve her own murder before the reincarnation spell wears off. Because in three days Evy will die again—but this time there’s no second chance. . . .
