Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. “It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.” I can not be the only person who forgets books so easily! There are some books that I know that I loved but I hardly remember anything about them. I remember the basic plot of most of them but not a lot of the details. Maybe it is time I reread a few of these!
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
I read Memoirs of a Geisha when it was all the rage and I remember really loving it. I even saw the movie when it came out, but still I have a very vague memory of what the story is about. I have heard some mixed opinions on this book recently, so I wonder what I would think about it now.
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
Just like Memoirs of a Geisha, I read The Secret Life of Bees when it was really popular and I remember watching the movie. I remember even less about this book than I remember about Memoirs of a Geisha. I do know that I really enjoyed it at the time!
Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt
I read this book in grade 9, and it really affected me. Even thinking about it now it makes me very sad, but I only remember the basic plot points. I have been wanting to reread Angela Ashes for years but I do not think my heart is ready.
One Day by David Nicholls
One Day was popular a few years ago, and I really loved it. The only thing that I remember about it is the ending- which was devastating! I do not recall anything that happened during the rest of the novel.
The Color Purple by Alice Walker
I know that this book was beautiful, and it made an impact on me when I read it high school. I hate to admit that I do not remember a lot about it. It is now a Broadway musical and it has inspired me to reread it sometime soon.
My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares
The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants is one of my favourite series, and I remember that series so clearly. I was so excited when My Name is Memory came out and I really enjoyed it. Thinking about it now, I do not remember a single thing about it. This is ironic considering the title of this book.
The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom
I have read and loved every single Mitch Albom novel. The Time Keeper was one of my favourites, but I forget a lot of what happens. I had to laugh at my Goodreads review on this book that I wrote in 2013-
Mitch Albom never seems to disappoint. This is certainly another winner. This novel may not be for everyone, but it is throught provoking and will stay with me forever.*
The Diviners by Libba Bray
I remember The Diviners being magical and beautiful and I really loved it. However, if you asked me to give you a synopsis, I think that I would struggle.
Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller
I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway, and I was not sure what to expect. I read it in one sitting and loved it! I could give you the basics, but I have forgotten so much about it and it is driving me crazy!
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
I can remember little things about this book- especially about the characters because they are so amazing. The actual plot is just not coming to me. I absolutely loved this book but I never continued on with the series for reason unknown.
What book did you love but you can not remember much about? I would love to know!
