Okay, I admit it, I see book covers on my Goodreads shelves and I have zero memory of ever reading them. Which is not acceptable because some of these books I’ve loved. Or at least that’s what my review says.
There’s two version of this: the standalone version in which I basically remember some stuff in the book but not all of it and certainly not specific moments that made the book awesome.
And then there’s the series version. Now I love series. I love binge reading series and generally being inside these worlds for more than a book. BUT. But. My issue is that I don’t remember where each book ends and the other begins? Like, for example, I remember what happened in the story, in vivid details but if you ask me to name the book where it happens? Hell if I know. Somewhere in there, I guess. That can be said for huge book series like The Mortal Instruments, and even a few events in the Harry Potter series (GASP, I KNOW!) or the Vampire Academy one. Oddly, I don’t have the same issues with the Black Dagger Brotherhood, which is more than 15 books, it helps that each book is centered around a brother at a time.
So here’s a few examples of books I can’t remember. And also, I’m not ashamed of it? *shrugs*
FANGIRL // Rating: 4 stars. Read: 2013.
I remember there being two sisters? They wrote Harry Potter fanfiction but not really HP because that belongs to JKR so it was kinda named different and it was slash? And Cathy, got a boyfriend and something cute? Or not?
BAD ROMEO // Rating: 3 stars. Read: 2014.
They are actors, doing a play but also used to date so now it’s awkward?
CRUEL BEAUTY // Rating: 2 stars. Read: 2014.
Beauty and the Beast retelling. That’s all I got, honestly.
TEARS OF TESS // Rating: 3 stars. Read: 2013.
I remember thinking this was one huge mess with toxic relationships.
FADING // Rating: 4 stars. Read: 2013.
Childish heroine but dark themes and some seriously messed up plot but I liked the main lead?
RUIN // Rating: 5 stars. Read: 2013.
College? He’s sort of dying? He has a bucket list or something. They fell in love? But he didn’t die?
ANIMATE ME // Rating: 4 stars. Read: 2013.
They work together. It’s cute?
FOREVER & ALWAYS // Rating: 5 stars. Read: 2014.
I hated the last book of this series. One doormat sister and one asshole sister. I really fucking hated the last book.
FIGHTING REDEMPTION // Rating: 5 stars. Read: 2013.
I’m so pissed off that I don’t remember much of this. I know the hero went off to war and there’s a time jump of something, but I seriously need to re-read this because I can only remember that I loved it and it makes me sad. Need to re-read ASAP!
Have you ever thought about changing a rating for a book? Because all of these have ratings and reviews and the fact that I don’t remember them now doesn’t mean that I didn’t enjoy them back in the days. Do you even have books you can’t remember reading?
