Book Review: Forgotten by Cat Patrick

Each night at precisely 4:33 am, while sixteen-year-old London Lane is asleep, her memory of that day is erased. In the morning, all she can "remember" are events from her future. London is used to relying on reminder notes and a trusted friend to get through the day, but things get complicated when a new boy at school enters the picture. Luke Henry is not someone you'd easily forget, yet try as she might, London can't find him in her memories of things to come.

When London starts experiencing disturbing flashbacks, or flash-forwards, as the case may be, she realizes it's time to learn about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.

My Review:

   That was such a good book! Like seriously, I didn't expect it to be that good but yeah, it was. And the reason why is basically because it was fun as well as interesting and the characters were definitely a major factor in how this story turned out to be. The concept of this book I found at first a bit odd yet intriguing but then I grew to being familiar with it throughout the story and I really liked it to the say the least!

What I Liked:
  • The love story. IT WAS THE SWEETEST! Together they were just spellbinding and individually they were also so lovable. Luke was like the perfect boyfriend and London had this attractiveness to her character and I loved them both.
  • The characters in general were all well-crafted and I salute Cat for that. They were lovable as well authentic and they greatly added to the story.
  • The plot itself was really fun. One where you can sit and read while having a good time and that is what you'd want from a story, right?!
  • The twist! Oh yeah, there was one and a unique one too and boy! did it not make this story as awesome as it was. Because basically what it was that London had a messed up memory where she lives her life day by day and her memories are the future... or what she thought it all was. And as it odd as it may seem, it kinda sounds differently or less odd when you read it.
What I Didn't Like: 
  • We didn't get much of a detailed ending as to how things ended which I usually don't mind but in this book it was kind of a bummer, just not as satisfying.
   Overall, I really did enjoy reading this book. A nice storyline with an engagingly sweet love story. The twist on this book was new as well as witty in the sense that it went well with the plot. The writing style was smooth and easy to follow. Moreover, the whole story just kind of lingered in my mind even after finishing it, guess I was sad that it ended. So, I do recommend this book for all of you contemporary novel readers out there ;)
