Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme 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.
Happy Tuesday y’all! This week’s topic is “Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About.” Has this ever happened to you? It’s happened to me a lot! I have a tendency to devour books I enjoy but a year later I can’t tell you much about the book other than that I enjoyed it. Here are the top ten books I enjoyed but can’t remember. As always, this list is in no particular order and covers link to Goodreads/Blog/Amazon(aff).
Ten Books I Enjoyed But Don’t Remember
Territory of the Dead by Rose Wynters: I remember very little about the series other than I liked it. It’s a novella series that I believe is set down south around Louisiana (?) but I’m not a hundred percent sure. What I do remember is it involves zombies and survival and other paranormal creatures AND the last book ended on a cliffhanger and has left me hanging for three years now. Maybe it will get finished one day?
You Are Mine by Janeal Falor: I remember loving the different take on this dystopia that involved magic and woman being slaves. BUT I don’t remember much else. I do remember loving the series and devouring what was out at the time I read this one. There are still two books I haven’t read and I think I just need to binge the whole series at some point.
Broken Promise by Jen Wylie: So I remember this book somewhat, but I don’t remember enough of it to be able to read the next one when it comes out. It’s been roughly 3 years since I read it and I loved Aro, Prince, Kei, and the rest of the characters. But I don’t remember what happens in this book and I don’t remember how it ended, other than it being another cliffhanger.
Miltic by A.S. Oren: This book ties into the author’s Gildemer series as it is set in the same universe. It’s more steampunk, new adult-ish. But I don’t remember much at all about the actual story. I think I need to binge the series so I can remember. One of these days….
Hope’s Deceit by Angela McPherson: It’s been nearly three years since I read this book. I loved it, I remember that. I liked the urban mythology and the mystery around Pandora’s box, but I don’t remember the ending or much about the characters. When the last book comes out, I’m going to have to do a binge read as a reminder.
Spelled by Betsy Schow: I just touched on this book over the weekend as I binged the rest of the series last week. I don’t really remember this book all that well. Thankfully the author gave a little recap in the third book from Dorthea’s POV about what had happened and what was happening otherwise I would have been completely lost.
Inherit the Stars by Tessa Elwood: I can honestly say I don’t remember anything about this book other than that it took me by surprise and started me down a road of scifi and space opera. I do remember the ending….sorta. I think the problem is that I devoured it and by that I mean I read it in one sitting.
Sword and Verse by Kathy MacMillan: I remember this book a little. I loved the premise, the setting, the characters. It was very well written and I think I named it my favorite debut the year I read it. However I don’t remember enough about it and I just learned a sequel is coming this year (unless that’s old news and is no longer happening). I’m excited! SO I’m thinking a reread is in order.
Defy by Sara B. Larson: I picked up this book not long after I read the Graceling series and was really wanting something similar. I remember I enjoyed it, but I also struggled with it because it was too reminiscent of fantasy series I had previously read which is probably why I don’t remember much about this book….I’m not sure I can even tell you the name of the main character….that’s terrible of me!!
Blood and Sin by Laura Thalassa and Dan Rix: I feel like a terrible fangirl adding this one to the list. I love Laura Thalassa and have devoured everything she’s written. This is the first I’ve read of her husband and I need to rectify that soon. BUT I don’t remember much about this one. I remember the awful cliffhanger and I remember that it is urban fantasy, but that’s it. I did enjoy it and devoured it like all the other Thalassa books I’ve read but I just don’t remember this one as well.
