Mom-Top Ten

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.

Happy Tuesday y’all! This week’s topic is “Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About.” Has this ever happened to you? It’s happened to me a lot! I have a tendency to devour books I enjoy but a year later I can’t tell you much about the book other than that I enjoyed it. Here are the top ten books I enjoyed but can’t remember. As always, this list is in no particular order and covers link to Goodreads/Blog/Amazon(aff).

Ten Books I Enjoyed But Don’t Remember

Book Cover for "Phase Four: Analyze" by Rose WyntersBook Cover for You Are Mine by Janeal FalorBook Cover for Broken Promise by Jen WylieBook Cover for "Hope's Deceit" by Angela McPherson

Territory of the Dead by Rose Wynters: I remember very little about the series other than I liked it. It’s a novella series that I believe is set down south around Louisiana (?) but I’m not a hundred percent sure. What I do remember is it involves zombies and survival and other paranormal creatures AND the last book ended on a cliffhanger and has left me hanging for three years now. Maybe it will get finished one day?

You Are Mine by Janeal Falor: I remember loving the different take on this dystopia that involved magic and woman being slaves. BUT I don’t remember much else. I do remember loving the series and devouring what was out at the time I read this one. There are still two books I haven’t read and I think I just need to binge the whole series at some point.

Broken Promise by Jen WylieSo I remember this book somewhat, but I don’t remember enough of it to be able to read the next one when it comes out. It’s been roughly 3 years since I read it and I loved Aro, Prince, Kei, and the rest of the characters. But I don’t remember what happens in this book and I don’t remember how it ended, other than it being another cliffhanger.

Miltic by A.S. Oren: This book ties into the author’s Gildemer series as it is set in the same universe. It’s more steampunk, new adult-ish. But I don’t remember much at all about the actual story. I think I need to binge the series so I can remember. One of these days…. 

Hope’s Deceit by Angela McPherson: It’s been nearly three years since I read this book. I loved it, I remember that. I liked the urban mythology and the mystery around Pandora’s box, but I don’t remember the ending or much about the characters. When the last book comes out, I’m going to have to do a binge read as a reminder. 

Book Cover for "Spelled" by Betsy SchowBook Cover for "Inherit the Stars" by Tessa ElwoodBook Cover for "Sword and Verse" by Kathy MacMillanBook Cover for "Blood and Sin" by Laura Thalassa & Dan Rix

Spelled by Betsy SchowI just touched on this book over the weekend as I binged the rest of the series last week. I don’t really remember this book all that well. Thankfully the author gave a little recap in the third book from Dorthea’s POV about what had happened and what was happening otherwise I would have been completely lost.

Inherit the Stars by Tessa ElwoodI can honestly say I don’t remember anything about this book other than that it took me by surprise and started me down a road of scifi and space opera. I do remember the ending….sorta. I think the problem is that I devoured it and by that I mean I read it in one sitting.

Sword and Verse by Kathy MacMillanI remember this book a little. I loved the premise, the setting, the characters. It was very well written and I think I named it my favorite debut the year I read it. However I don’t remember enough about it and I just learned a sequel is coming this year (unless that’s old news and is no longer happening). I’m excited! SO I’m thinking a reread is in order.

Defy by Sara B. LarsonI picked up this book not long after I read the Graceling series and was really wanting something similar. I remember I enjoyed it, but I also struggled with it because it was too reminiscent of fantasy series I had previously read which is probably why I don’t remember much about this book….I’m not sure I can even tell you the name of the main character….that’s terrible of me!!

Blood and Sin by Laura Thalassa and Dan RixI feel like a terrible fangirl adding this one to the list. I love Laura Thalassa and have devoured everything she’s written. This is the first I’ve read of her husband and I need to rectify that soon. BUT I don’t remember much about this one. I remember the awful cliffhanger and I remember that it is urban fantasy, but that’s it. I did enjoy it and devoured it like all the other Thalassa books I’ve read but I just don’t remember this one as well.
