THIS HAPPENS SO MUCH.
Like so much!!!
A few weeks ago I was sorting out my bookcases and the number of books I picked up that I couldn’t remember a thing about was crazy, I think some rereads are in order this year 🙂
1) Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Okay, so this book I intend to re-read this year (hopefully) anyway, I don’t remember much but I gave it three stars the first time around so I don’t think I enjoyed it, I remember it just being very slow paced and I wasn’t feeling something slow at that point. After reading such great reviews about not only this book but the rest of the books in the series so although I don’t remember much I shall 100% be picking this up again for a reread, watch this space and all that jazz 🙂
2) Lying About Last Summer by Sue Wallman
Okay, off the top of my head without looking at my old review on Goodreads I think this about a girl who goes to a camp and her best friend has died that summer? BOOM I WAS RIGHT. well, half right is about a summer camp for troubled teens and it’s her sister that dies not her friend so pretty close. I think I enjoyed it when I read it start of last year as I gave it 4 stars but I can’t remember anything that happened. Apparently according to my review past Katherine found the first half boring and the second half really good xD
3) I Was Here by Gayle Forman
HER FRIEND DIES IN THIS ONE. I knew a friend died in one of the books I read, I just couldn’t remember which one. Other than that was what happened in the book (it’s not a spoiler, it’s written in the blurb) I don’t remember a single thing, apparently, I rated it 3.5 stars so I didn’t enjoy it as much as the other two books. Past Katherine thought that the plot was overdone and was overshadowed by the romance, wow! Past Katherine wasn’t easy to please by the sound of it! xD
4) This Lullaby by Sara Dessen
I feel like this was about a wedding? I don’t even remember, it was my first book I read by Sara Dessen and I remember really enjoying it at the time. RIGHT, so according to the blurb her mom is on her fifth husband so maybe that’s where I got weddings from, turns out the main character is Remy and her love interest is Dexter -I REMEMBER NONE OF THAT. But, I gave it four stars at the time so I must have really enjoyed it when I read it! Maybe I’ll give it a reread and see what I think this time around 🙂
5) Tonight the Streets Are Ours by Leila Sales
When sorting out my bookshelf I actually had to check Goodreads to see if I had read this book and it was on the wrong bookcase (I have a bookcase of read books and one of to-read) but it turned out I have no idea what it’s about, even now after reading the blurb not long ago I still can’t remember what it’s about. I gave it three stars and in my review, I talk about how annoying the main character is and her family and that I didn’t really like the plot. I was generous though and gave it 3 stars?
6) My Hearts and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga
I think this may be a book that has a mental illness in, I’m not 100% sure, I’m going to definitely have to check Goodreads for this one! Okay, so looks like at the time I read it I gave it 4 stars!! It’s a shame I don’t remember much more about it 🙁
It’s about suicide by reading the blurb so it’s for sure a content warning on this book so if you do plan on reading it, be careful.
7) Lady Renegades by Rachel Hawkins
I loved the first book in the series, Rebel Belle was absolutely amazing and I highly recommend that book, read it seriously, you’ll thank me later, it’s hilarious!!! This book, of course, follows our main character Haper and her boyfriend David but that’s about it, when I read it I know I loved it but whether it’s because it’s part of a series or what but I clearly remember everything about the first book but not much about the rest, I think I may have to re-read this series 🙂
8) Inside Out by Maria V Snyder
The only thing I remember about this book was that I bought it because it was 99p on kindle or it was free, one of them anyway 🙂 Apparently I gave it 3.5 stars according to my review as it felt like a very rushed book! But yeah, I can’t remember much about this book but I have started one of her other books Poison Study and I am loving it, highly recommend! 🙂
9) The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
The one thing I remember about this book is that I didn’t like it, I can’t remember for the life of me why I just know that I ended up DNFing halfway through, according to my review it was an “it’s not you, it’s me” thing with this book. I am tempted to maybe pick this up again as I’ve heard such good things about this book by lots of people on Goodreads and I believe that Julie is releasing a new book this year that sounds super interesting 🙂
10) The Suffering Tree by Elle Cosimano
This is another book that I don’t remember anything about other than the fact I didn’t like it. According to Goodreads, I gave this 2 stars (which means I reaaaalllyyy didn’t like it). I thought there was no build up to the story and there was no character development and it was boring. Wowww, salty Katherine. That’s one book I for sure won’t be picking up to re-read anytime soon xD
So, do you agree with any of the books on my list?
What books have you read that you remember barley anything about?
