Do you ever get asked about a book you liked and then you struggle to remember what it was about again? And I am not talking about stumbling about a synopsis because you are bad at describing what a book is about or anxiety kicks in and you draw a blank. But genuinely forgotten. Who was a couple with who again for instance? And yet you keep having this warm feeling when you remember the book?
I have that a lot with books I read a little longer ago. And lets be honest there are books where there are so many details to keep straight as you read the book, how can you be supposed to remember it a year later? Not me. A Song of Ice and Fire is lucky it has a tv show…
Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks
I read these way back in 2009 and I remember really liking these. I mean, it had been a while since I really read anything and then I bought the first book, read it and immediately ordered the next two to read. How simple the reading life was back then. I even remember reading them during our trip in Egypt then. And I know it is about assassins. But they are big and detailed. I tried rereading them last year but was not in the mood with everything.
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Suskind
This is a book my mom found and I saw laying around at our home when I was sixteen or so. I was home alone and had the random urge to read something and there it was. I remember a murderer, the smell of people and the ending. That ending is impossible to forget. But there is a lot in between that is hazy and I have been meaning to reread this one for a while. I mean, it has been more than 10 years…
The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo
Don’t shoot me! But I focused more on Nicolai once he became present in the books than on anything else. Or at least my memory did, haha.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
I read this before I started my blog and I remember liking it but I now cannot remember that much about what actually happened. Except that there is a Noah.
Cracked by Eliza Crewe
It is about demons! But there was more backstory that I can’t quite remember. It is a shame I couldn’t find the second ebook here either at the time or I would have read on immediately.
Otherbound by Corinne Duyvis
Otherbound was my first book from Corinne and I remember liking it. It has a bisexual main character who is also disabled but I cannot remember that much from the story.
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
There is just too much detail in this to remember!
