Do you ever find yourself going through your shelves and finding a book you don’t remember reading at all? That’s me. A couple of days ago, I was going through my Goodreads, clearing out books I no longer want to read, when I came across books I don’t remember reading. When did I read this book? Did I fall, hit my head, and forget? Did an alternate universe Cee read these? Why don’t I remember reading these?
The book on this list of “I don’t remember reading at all!!” are a mixture of books I truly have no memory of reading it or I don’t remember what happened so did I really read them??? I am truly baffled that I cannot remember one specific thing that happens in these books. Maybe I never read them? Maybe I scanned through it because I was deciding whether to read it? Who knows! Only Cee from six years ago has the answer, and it’s not like I can travel to the past and ask.
Unearthly is the first book that made me go “wait! WUT.” I don’t remember reading this book—let along wanting to read it. It’s about angels, and has romance in it. Ew. I guess I read this book during a time I didn’t know what I liked reading because present day Cee would NEVER willing pick up this book. Romance + angels are no bueno.
I…have a vague recollection of DUFF. I just remember being angry and absolutely hating this book. I don’t remember why. A lot of people didn’t like this book because the main character complained about everything. DUFF is a book I wonder if I’d enjoy now since I feel more opened to characters who are “unlikable.”
I only remember that For Darkness Shows the Stars is a retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion, and I’m a sucker for that book. Do I remember things in this? Nope. I’m just confused why I don’t remember it because I’d love the story if it’s based on Persuasion, right?
All I remember is that the guy comes back from Afghanistan, and that it’s a romance. I usually stay away from stories like this, so I don’t know what intrigued me. Maybe the aspect of the guy and his love interest knowing each other since they were little and having a rocky relationship? I do like those.
I know I read Incarnate, but did I really finish it? I think I picked this up because I love reading books about reincarnation. It gets me super emotional.
Charm & Strange is one of two books on this list that I know I read, but I don’t remember anything that happened! I remember loving it and being all on edge because of the psychological aspect, so I think it’s about time for a reread.
How can I not remember if I read Eleanor & Park? Well, I remember that I had a lot of trouble getting into this book. I got to the scene where Eleanor got into a fight with her father(?) after meeting Park, and…that’s all I remember? I don’t know if I stopped reading because I’ll get back to it? Maybe?
This Song Will Save Your Life is the other book that I know I read…maybe? I had a hard time getting into this book, so I may have stopped one time, but I went back and reread it to finish it. Yet, I don’t remember if those two things actually happened.
Besides Unearthly, Side Effects May Very is another book I truly don’t remember if I read it. Maybe I didn’t read it because the synopsis doesn’t not ring a bell at all. Maybe I mistakenly put it as read? But I would automatically fix that if that was the case.
Reality TV, I remember that aspect of Reality Boy. What happens in it? Uhhhhhhhhhh. Maybe I’m mixing it with Something Real?
