My Review
Forgotten is a young adult paranormal romance.
The reason I read this book is because it was recommended to me by a girl in my class, and boy am I glad I read it! It's amazing! It had just the right touch of betrayal, twists and romance.
The main plot in this book is for London Lane (main character) to figure out why the new guy Luke isn't in her future.
London is a 16-year-old girl who can't remember her past, but can 'remember' the future. At 4:33am each morning London's memory resets, and in the morning she needs to read through her notes to find out what happened the day before. I liked London because she took things at face value, and only at time was she pushy and moody. I didn't like her because she kept secrets from everyone about the future.
The things I didn't like about this book was the lack of detail and explanation as to why London had lost her past, and also why she couldn't remember Luke. I was also really annoyed at the ending, how it seemed in my opinion to end as a chapter would end, not as a book. It didn't resolve any issues, didn't explain why Luke wasn't in her memory, or what she thought of Jonas, or how her dad found her. It's just slightly annoying.
I did like how it was an easy read, and I didn't have to concentrate to get into it. I could just pick it up and read for 5 mins, then put it back down again.
This book was published in 2011, and it's pretty popular at my school. I will definitely be reading more books by this author in the future.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It's recommended for those looking for a quick and easy read, and who like romance. I give it a 4/5.


  1. I read this book quite awhile ago. It's pretty good and I hope there will be a sequel. I doubt it though.

  2. I don't think there's a sequel.
