Forgettable Books… Already Forgotten…

The problem with a forgettable books list is I’ve forgotten a lot of the books that I want to put on here. Never fear- goodreads is here! After trawling through some books I read years ago and documented on there, I was able to find at least some books that I don’t remember reading at all.

Wolf Brother– I *wish* I could remember this- I know that I loved it and I have a vague sense of the characters and story- but not enough to continue the series (and I only had one book to go as well!) It’s been driving me nuts that I can’t think of enough of the plot, because I feel like I’d have to reread the rest of the series to finish it and I can’t be bothered to do that.

 

Across the Nightingale Floor– even reading the synopsis, I don’t remember it at all. It sounds very different and like something I’d enjoy- apparently I did as well.

 

 

The Merrybegot– reading the summary I have vague memories of this and apparently I liked it.

 

 

Goddess of Yesterday– I seem to recall once reading a loose YA version of the Iliad that was decent… could this be that book?

 

 

 

Unwind– apparently I hated this, so it can’t be such a bad thing that I can’t remember this- apparently time heals some wounds!

 

 

Odin’s Voice– I do remember parts of this, but I’ve blotted out huge amounts, cos for ages it was my least favourite book. It starts off as an interesting take on slavery, takes some weird turns (I don’t remember what they were thankfully) and then they go into space for no reason. Yeah this book sucked. It’s no wonder I don’t want to remember it.

 

Sepulchre– this was part of the series and I liked the first one and can picture some of the scenes, but I cannot for the life of me think what happened here.

 

 

The Savage Garden– I actually remember two things about this: really overlong, up itself descriptions of the garden and an awkward sex scene. Kind of explains why I thought of it as pretentious and didn’t like it at all.

 

 

The Pledge Series– I can recall that this was really generic and not much else. I know that the girl had powers that made her *super special* and there was *romance*. But yeah, this was the height of the whole dystopian YA phase- I don’t know why I should even be worried that I don’t know what was in it. She saves the world and defeats the baddie. That’s it.

The Testing– one thing I remember from this incredibly mediocre dystopian story is how often we were told the mc was *the smartest smarty pants among all the super smart people!* and how rarely that was actually shown. Other than that it’s a blank slate. I think there was some sort of Hunger Games style contest?

 

See this whole list is why I do reviews! I don’t think I’d have forgotten nearly as much of these books (a lot of which I apparently liked) if I’d just written something down about my impressions! It’s a little frustrating! Then again, some things are better left forgotten…

Do you know any of these books and can you fill in the gaps for me? And do you have any books that you know you’ve read, but can’t remember? Let me know in the comments!
