Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
This week’s Top
Ten Tuesday Topic:
Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About
This will be easy since I love most of the books I read and have a memory worse than Dory’s. I apologize in advance if your favorite book is here but know that I really liked it anyways.
The thing is that I tend to read a lot of books at the same time. When you do that the stories kind of blur together a bit and it takes a few paragraphs to remember exactly what was happening. Also, as soon as a book is finished I will be starting another one (or five).
So the issue is: I don’t remember exact scenes from these but I remember the story and the feelings that went with it. The fact that I don’t remember much about these books doesn’t mean that they were less entertaining or bad, in fact all of these are above 4 stars.
Here they are, in no particular order:
The raven cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
This counts as 4 because I say so but also because they ARE 4 books. I read the whole series in about a week and a half and I really enjoyed it, it was weird and magical and had a few twists that I had fun with. I actually read it just because I was told that it had bisexual prep but I liked it. That said I remember maybe five specific scenes on the whole series
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
What drew me in first and foremost was the cover. No matter the edition they are all so pretty!
The thing I remember most of this book was the feeling, it was eerie and magical and delicate and everything I like. It had time skips and different timelines with in the story. I read this one on audiobook (so I heard it) while I was finishing an point de croix project that took me over a year, so my attention was on the story and the picture. Still it was amazing
Rebel of the sands by Alwyn Hamilton
Again, I was hooked by a beautiful cover. I remember the story and I remember it was fast paced, there was a desert and sharpshooter and djinns but there was also another point de croix huge-ass project so I can’t tell you which was my favorite part on the book, just that I enjoyed it a lot and have still to pick up the sequel.
Simon vs the Homo sapiens agenda by Becky Albertalli
OH MY GOD?? YES I LOVE IT AND WILL LOVE THE MOVIE BUT I read it in like two days for a readathon while managing another seven books so the specifics are kind of blurred together at this point. I’m intending to re-read it before the movie comes out but I will wait for the new edition with bonus content so that I can remember even more than what I forgot this time around.
