Book Review #246 - Forgotten by Cat Patrick


With the intrigue of "Memento" and the romance of "The Time-Traveller's Wife", "Forgotten" is the perfect YA novel.

Each night when 16 year-old London Lane goes to sleep, her whole world disappears. In the morning, all that's left is a note telling her about a day she can't remember. The whole scenario doesn't exactly make high school or dating that hot guy whose name she can't seem to recall any easier. But when London starts experiencing disturbing visions she can't make sense of, she realizes it's time to learn a little more about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.

Part psychological drama, part romance, and part mystery, this thought-provoking novel will inspire readers to consider the what-if's in their own lives and recognize the power they have to control their destinies.
My Rating: 4/5
I can only find two negatives with this book. The first is that I found it a bit confusing to begin with. With her only remembering her future and not her past.
The only other negative thing was the pacing. It felt like everything happened in the last 50 or so pages. Even then it wasn't fully resolved.
The main character London was an intriguing character and she develops slowly throughout the book. I did find her annoying at times but the majority of the time I did like her.
Luke had the potential to be a great character but there wasn't much depth to him and so I found it hard to connect with him.

  1. This sounds like a decent read and one worth trying, however, rushed endings and unresolved issues are a pet peeve of mine, so we will see. Thanks you for your review.
