Okay, I can’t be the only one that reads books, falls in love with them, then forgets them afterwards, right? Or maybe I am. I really hope I’m not though because that would be kind of awkward. Also, if you’re wondering if this also doubles as a list of books I will reread at some point, it very well could.
Without further ado, here’s some books I really liked but don’t remember.
I remember being completely in love with these books, however, the only think I really remember is like two very unimportant scenes from the first book and the heart breaking ending of the second book. Basically, I just remember my heart being shattered into a million pieces and that I really really loved the main guy character. Though I just had to look up that his name is August because I honestly couldn’t remember, so that says something too.
I do plan on rereading these books at some point because I do remember a lot of enjoyment and I want to get to where I can remember the actual books too.
I just realized that this post is basically just going to be me repeatedly saying “lol I forgot what this book was about but I loved it” over and over six times, so sorry for that. Anyways, I remember a good bit of the second one because I read it recently, but the first one? No clue once so ever. I remember the very beginning and two or three other random bits, but no main plot points or anything like that. I do have a reason for forgetting this one though! I read it really quick as a stress reliever during AP exam session my senior year, and I do this fun thing where I block out everything associated with AP exams.
I read these two books in January. January. Like, of this year. Like, two months ago. I should logically be able to remember them, right? Wrong. I remember sadness, lots of sadness and some fun pain sprinkled in throughout. I remember having very strong opinions while reading it, but now I can’t even remember those opinions. There is a slight chance I have a problem.
I do plan on rereading these this summer and writing reviews before her newest contemporary comes out. Someone hold me to that.
I remember this book being so so fun. I remember really loving it and loving how the characters were so tolerant of each other’s religious beliefs and their friend group in general being amazing. I remember them getting drunk together at some point? And maybe a fight between the main character and the dad? Past that? Nothing. I don’t even know if those last two things happened or if I’m making them up. I really want to get a physical copy of this and reread it since I audiobooked it the first time.
Also, side note, this audiobook is literally amazing. If you’re looking for a fun contemporary audiobook, look into it.
I read this the first time I attempted a 24 hour readathon (note the word attempted and the lack of the word accomplished). I remember that I read it in about an hour and completely loved it. I read the second book later and I remember a shocking amount of that one, but yet again, it seems that the first book has completely left my memory. I remember there were doors and magic and that I felt really bad for the main character, but that’s about it.
I should reread these and keep going with the series at some point. I don’t know when that point will be though.
I remember literally nothing about this book other than some of the characters were on a boat? And maybe some siblings? Brothers, I think. Like, three brothers? But also, maybe not. It honestly amazes me how little I remember about this book given that I read it. What I do remember is that I finished it via audio in my senior year psychology class while working on my mosaic project. Why can I remember the fact that I was randomly assigned to sit really close to my teachers desk that day, that I was wearing gray sweatpants and a Latin tee shirt (90% sure it was my purple club tee shirt that says “Latin’s not dead, its just Roman around” on the back), and that I technically finished the last of the audio while walking back from the bathroom, but none of the actual book? Why is my brain like this?
Okay, that’s about it from me for today. Thanks for sticking it out through that weird unplanned semi hiatus thing I had going on for the past week and a half, I am going to attempt to prewrite a little bit so that doesn’t happen again.
Before you go, do you forget books after you read them too or this just a weird me problem? If I am not alone in this issue, what books have you forgotten? Do you want to reread them? Let’s chat in the comments!
