Top Ten Tuesday: Five Star Reads I Can't Remember Anythign About

A weekly meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

You would think that this is the perfect category for me. I mean I'm so notorious for forgetting things about books as soon as I read them that I wrote a whole post on bookish amnesia. But this actually was really hard.

1.) Flame in the Mist by Renee Ahdieh - My Review
I remember that it had a super surprising ending and an amazing world but that's about it. I mean I only vaguely remember what that twist was. This was one of my favorite books of last year and I forgot like all the details.

2.) Nevernight by Jay Kristoff - My Review
When I read Godsgrave I was so confused because seriously I remember very little about this book. Like I didn't even remember one of the major character's name. I was talking to my friend Pili about it and I said this theory I had which actually happened in book 1.

3.) Carry On by Raimbow Rowell - My Review
I remember that Baz is a vampire and that I ship him and Simon but that's basically it. Oh wait, I remember the magical system was super cool and basically nursery nursery rhymes. Yeah, now I'm out.

4.) Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo - My Review
I remember a lot about Six of Crows but when it comes to Crooked Kingdom all I remember is that I really wanted Kaz and Inej to hold hands. Also I remember being devastating by one thing that happened. But that's all.

5.) Uprooted by Naomi Novik - My Review
I remember the fact that the trees were the antagonist and that were actually super creepy and I remember that the main characters name was super unique. Also there was a wizard named The Dragon and she had to work with him and he wasn't as bad as people thought.

6.) The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich - My Review
I remember that this book was told in an epistolary format and that I was so confused by the ending because it messed with my head but that's it. I mean I also know that this was a pretty cool horror and that there were maybe two sisters.

7.) The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker - My Review
There is a sequel to this book coming out this year, I think, and I am definitely going to have to reread this one because I remember almost nothing about it. I do know that it was a great setting a super atmospheric but nothing plot wise.

8.) The Smell of Other People's Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock - My Review
I remember really liking this book and that it was one of my favorite debuts of two years ago but other than that it takes place in Alaska and that it had multiple perspectives.

9.) Court of Fives by Kate Elliott - My Review
I read the final book in this series last year and I really should have reread the first two books because there was so much that I had forgotten. I think it even referenced some stuff from earlier books from earlier in the series

10.) The Storyspinner by Becky Wallace - My Review
I loved this book when I read it a few years ago. I remember stuff about the world and the fact that it wasn't your typical YA fantasy except that it was plot wise. I mean I remember very little about the plot because I think it blended in with other books.

There you have it. Those are the ten books I loved but don't remember anything about. What books made your list? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!


  1. You should've just posted your READ list. LOLOLOL.

  2. I think part of why Carry On is hard to remember is that I also have the "real" Simon and Baz stories and the fanfiction Simon & Baz stories from Fangirl in my head as well. I can't remember what happened in Carry On vs. those other places in Fangirl. There's so much Simon and Baz. (And I love it all!)

    1. That is true. It definitely blends together. But I also love Simon and Baz so the more the merrier.

  3. Bookish amnesia is SO REAL! Especially when there are so many of us bookish people who are able to make it through so many books in a year. :) I'm totally with you on Uprooted... I remember enjoying it, and basic outlines of various characters, but other than that, it's kind of meshed together with the other kinds of high fantasy I've read over the years. Maybe it's time for a reread?

  4. Uprooted basically was a mix of Beauty and the Beast and Howl's Moving Castle. :D <3

  5. Oh man! I still need to read Skylighter...I don't remember the Storyspinner well at all! I'm going to be in trouble because I don't think there's a recap of it anywhere! Really regret not taking better notes in those early days!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  6. I only read Crooked Kingdom, and I had to speed read it, because my library loan was expiring. Of course I remember THAT part really clearly, but I will admit, a lot of details were lost during the speed read.

  7. I have the same with Carry On! I actually want to re-read it soon, because I remember next to nothing about it. :)

  8. Oh man, Crooked Kingdom is burned in to my memory! I haven't read The Storyspinner yet, or Dead House.
