My Name is Memory
My Name is Memory | Ann Brashares
The latest from Ann Brashares, the New York Times bestselling author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, a magical story of reincarnation and a love that lasts more than a lifetime Daniel has spent centuries falling in love with the same girl. Life after life, crossing continents and dynasties, he and Sophia (despite her changing name and form) have been drawn together-and he remembers it all. For all the times that he and Sophia have been connected throughout history, they have also been torn painfully, fatally, apart. But just when Sophia (now "Lucy" in the present) finally awakens to the secret of their shared past, the mysterious force that has always separated them reappears. Ultimately, they must come to understand what stands in the way of their love if they are ever to spend a lifetime together.

My Name is Memory | Ann Brashares

OMG this book! One of the best I‘ve read this year 💗 I don‘t usually do anything sci-fi/fantasy/unrealistic but this one did it for me. It wasn‘t too far fetched as to become totally unbelievable. What an amazing story!

My Name is Memory | Ann Brashares

This is about Daniel, who can remember his past lives. He has been in love for centuries with a girl (variously named Sophie/Charlotte/Lucy, depending on her past life) who cannot. I found the whole concept of Daniel keeping his memory from one life through the others to be rather fascinating—those were the parts I liked. The love story—not so much. And the ending was ridiculous and obviously set up for a sequel which I will not read.

xicanti @lovelybookshelf I'll choose a chewy ginger snap over any other cookie. 4y
xicanti @kaye the world is surprisingly full of dead pheasants. TONS of people have them as trophies in their houses, they're an antique store staple, museums and historical houses usually have at least one, and they crop up as shop decorations all. the. time. They've sort of gone out of vogue for that here in Canada, but when I lived in Auckland all the fancy-dancy stores decorated with taxidermy. Pheasants were the gold standard. 4y
xicanti @LauraBeth thank you! 4y
Kaye Oh. That makes sense I guess. I‘m in Ohio and can‘t ever remember seeing a dead pheasant. Maybe not a live one either ! 4y
xicanti @kaye I probably notice more than the average person because I'm sensitized to them. I've gotta tread carefully in certain settings so I don't turn around and find myself face to face with a screaming dead bird. Because taxidermists LOVE to mount pheasants so they're screaming at you. 4y

Y‘all. I just finished My Name Is Memory and am prepared to find every copy of it and burn them in an epic bonfire so no one is subjected to this HEARTBROKEN RAGE about the ending. Everybody read it so we can be rageful up together.

Daniel remembers everything going back centuries in order to find his love. This story goes back and forth in time telling of each time they fell in love.

Side note...waiting for a sequel since 2010.

Hello, my name is Marta.
My #LitsyHandle is monogamist_reader, because I have a bad memory and I can always read one book at a time. I can't follow two stories at the same time. 😂 I usually go by the online name warghalv (but that's another story). I just wanted something for book-related social so I came up with monogamist_reader. ✌️🖐️


SilversReviews I can only read one book at a time too. 5y
Chelleo Now I want to know about your other handle! 😂 5y
monogamist_reader @SilversReviews good to know I'm not the only one! 5y
monogamist_reader @Chelleo Ahahah!! It comes from a character of a Japanese anime/cartoon ❤️ 5y

My name is Memory. Like the thing in your head.

My #LitsyHandle was the name of my character in a Star Wars RPG my friends and I ran when we were teenagers. We did it all through email, with zero regard for how other people do RPGs, and it was awesome. I also wrote craploads of dire fanfic about the guy, and adopted xicanti as my standard username because it was uncommon. I DID steal it from a dodgy YA novel, though, so I can't always nab it.

LauraBeth Memory may be one of the coolest names ever 5y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk Here I‘ve been thinking it was something related to your X-men love like “X I can‘t” and I just couldn‘t figure out that last i. Good to know. 5y
ghosthost A dodgy YA novel? Curious I am. 5y

xicanti @LauraBeth when I met Maureen Johnson, she wrote that in my copy of THE LAST LITTLE BLUE ENVELOPE, so it must be true! 5y
xicanti @TobeyTheScavengerMonk when I was a young person on message boards, people used to put random X's in front of their usernames if the one they wanted wasn't available, and I eventually learned a whole bunch of folks thought I'd just suck an X in front of, "I can't, I..." 5y
xicanti @ghosthost I can't remember the title, but it was one of those YA fantasies from before YA was a proper thing. I think the author's first name was Douglas. My friends were obsessed with the two-book series, and I flipped through the second one and stole the name Xicanti from a city. A while later, I read the books and wasn't too impressed. 5y
Chelleo Memory is an awesome name! 5y

I loved this book and hated the ending. It was beautifully written and had a combination of genres wrapped into one. But, man, that last fourth of the book was not great. I still think it's a pick, but beware so you're not disappointed.

I LOVED this book, but hated the ending. And as someone who grew up in Virginia, I really didn't like that she referred to a "Virginia Twang" in relation to speech. Virginians 99.999% of the time based on the cities mentioned in her book DO NOT HAVE A SOUTHERN ACCENT ???. The story itself is sweet, and gut-wrenching. A soul keeps coming back desperate to finally connect with it's soulmate, or so he believes. Awesome plot, and well told.

StrayCat13 I've been waiting, in vain I might add, for over 6 years for her to write a sequel to this book! 5y
candc320 I loved this book, but was so mad when it left off on what felt like a cliffhanger and then learned there was no sequel in the works 😫. 5y

Amazing. I loved this book! Daniel has been living life over and over, and he remembers his past lives and recognizes souls. And he is trying to find his soulmate. But she doesn't remember Daniel.

Such a good book! I think this will be in my top five for this year.

@BookBabe felt a little under the weather last night, so I made Vanilla Caramel tea in mugs that my sister decorated and gave to us over Christmas. And after reading a love story about soulmates that spans centuries, well, ya know ☺️. I love her tremendously 😍.

An almost perfect love story. Captivating premise, held my attention through the end. It's about reincarnation and undying love. Could've been slightly better written, but I enjoyed it. The ending was not entirely satisfying, but not a deal-breaker. Shown here with one of the book clubs @MrBook and I run, and a half-healthy lunch (chicken Cesar wrap and disco tots). 😉

Zelma Disco tots? What are those? They look like they're drowning. 😋 6y

LisaJo TOTS! 👏👏👏👏 6y
Readingrobin I was disappointed with "Last Summer (of You and Me)" after being a 'Sisterhood' fan! 6y
Julsmarshall Another one intrigued by disco tots! Inquiring minds must know! 6y
MrBook @Zelma @LibrarianJen @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled.com @Julsmarshall ???????! Disco tots are tater tots smothered in gravy (usually brown beef gravy) and melted cheese (usually mozzarella). It's a Jersey diner thing that has expanded beyond the state's borders. It started with disco fries (French fries) and gone on from there to other potato varieties. Why they call them "disco" though, I have no idea. Jersey has a lot of foods that... 6y
MrBook @Zelma @LibrarianJen @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled.com @Julsmarshall one can't find anywhere where. For example, have you ever heard of Taylor ham or pannetone bread or black & white cookies? 6y
Zelma It's like the Jersey version of poutine! Love it. I don't knew the other foods, but I have had black and white cookies (my dad used to live in New York). 6y
readinginthedark Black & white cookies are everywhere, right? I live in Missouri, and we have some bakeries with them, although they obviously didn't start here. 6y
MrBook @Zelma 😎👍🏻 He's in a New York state of mind. 6y
MrBook @readinginthedark Oooh, good 😁👏🏻👍🏻! They are awesome cookies! I love how every region has culinary items somewhat exclusive to them. 6y
Graciouswarriorprincess I need to be in your book club! 6y
LibrarianJen @MrBook nope. But have you heard of green chile cheese fries, Sopapillas, biscochitos, or fried ice cream? 6y
bookishkai @LibrarianJen green chile cheese fries are food of the gods. @MrBook I see your Taylor ham and panettone bread and raise you a Portuguese sweet bread, two hot wieners all the way, and a coffee cabinet (I grew up in Rhode Island). 6y
MrBook @bookishkris 😂👏🏻😉😎👍🏻👌🏻 6y
MrBook @Graciouswarriorprincess You are always welcome 😎👍🏻! 6y
MrBook @LibrarianJen Oooh! Good ones 😁! I loooovvve fried ice cream! I had biscochitos in Albuquerque, mmmmm! Ice cream and cookies, my favorites 😆👏🏻👍🏻🙌🏻👌🏻! Haven't heard of the first 2 though 😊👍🏻. 6y
Graciouswarriorprincess @MrBook if I am in NY I will let you know! Thank you!👍😀 6y
MrBook @Graciouswarriorprincess Or the Poconos. We run bookclubs in both spots 😊👍🏻. 6y
LibrarianJen @bookishkris They really are! 6y
LibrarianJen @MrBook if you like fried ice cream and biscochitos then you will love Sopapillas. They are little pieces of fried dough that look like pillows and when you poke your finger in the middle they are empty like a pocket. So then you take honey and spread it inside the pocket. It's the standard desert at any New Mexican restaurant and almost always comes with your meal. 6y
bookishkai @MrBook and green chile is amazing. Though, I suspect @LibrarianJen and I have differing opinions on how best to make it since she's from New Mexico and I live in Colorado; here we like it with chunks of cooked pork, green chiles, onion, and a little tomato. But I think it's just green chiles in NM. Mmmmm, SO good on burritos and cheese fries, or just eaten with a tortilla. 6y
LibrarianJen @bookishkris Yeah we usually just roast the green chiles and then chop them up and put them on everything. Literally everything! You can make a sauce, but it's usually a broth like the one I make is chile, onion and garlic and then I use chicken stock. What you described sounds almost like green chile stew. 6y

@BookBabe 's and my #ThePoconoBookClub met over lunch today. An awesome 2+-hour discussion on "My Name Is Memory". Fantastic conversation today. And my food was soooo good ??: bacon cheeseburger with provolone and mushrooms: disco tater tots (tots are making a strong comeback ???); & Southern iced tea. Love my bookclubs! (The ladies are still talking, & I'm going, hmmm, time to post a food pic ?!)

Hollie In DC I went to a restaurant which featured waiters wearing shirts that said either "show us your tots!" Or "body by bacon." I regret not purchasing one or both. 6y

Same recipe minus the sweetness *sighs*. Bojangles as *the* best sweet tea, closely followed by Cracker Barrel 😋. 6y
BookishFeminist 😒 then it's not southern iced tea, those twerps. 👎🏼 to that restaurant. Bojangles is good, but homemade or at a BBQ joint is better. 6y
MrBook @BookishFeminist 🙃🙌🏻! 6y
Laalaleighh I seriously came to the comments to say the exact same thing as @BookishFeminist 6y
Laalaleighh Bbq joint sweet tea always wins. McAlisters is great too. 6y
BookishFeminist @Laalaleighh ❤️!! There's a reason we get along. BBQ joint sweet tea does always win, especially if it's one from the side of the road. Never had McAlisters but I know what I'll be trying now when I get the chance! Also getting Bojangles & Cheerwine this weekend now. 6y
MrBook @BookishFeminist @Laalaleighh The bbq joints up here don't have sweet tea like the South does 😔😒. It usually tastes like a cardboard synthetic variation up here *sighs*. 6y
BookishFeminist @MrBook @Laalaleighh That's because there aren't any BBQ joints in NJ/Pa/Ny. They're frauds. (Unless you find soul food somewhere.) 6y
Karkar @MrBook so a tot version of poutine sounds yummy! 6y
BookishFeminist @Laalaleighh I had "sweet tea" at a restaurant up north in Minnesota that claimed to do southern cooking- me and another Virginian along for the dinner took one sip and were like WTH is this?! They'd used Artisan loose leaf tea to make it- I'm like no, you can't just get single source baby Ceylon leaves handpicked by virgin monkeys in the mountains of China, brew it, throw sugar in and call that sweet tea. ?? don't foodie my sweet tea! 6y
LauraBeth The GA in me felt the need to add a comment here about the tea but I see that @BookishFeminist and @Laalaleighh have it covered 😀👍 6y
MrBook @Karkar 😁👏🏻👍🏻🙌🏻😋!!! @BookishFeminist 😂😂😂👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🙌🏻👌🏻👍🏻! @LauraBeth 😁👏🏻👍🏻👌🏻! I just report what they call it 😜, lol! 6y
MrBook @Karkar @BookishFeminist @Laalaleighh @LauraBeth Who would've thunk that on a book app we'd be talking about poutine & authentic bbq joints with authentic Southern sweet tea 😂👏🏻👍🏻! I love it! 6y
Lynnsoprano The Poconos? I spent a lot of time there when I was a kid. (I grew up in Bethlehem). But I have lived in the south for 40 years, and I still drink unsweetened tea. 6y
BookishFeminist @MrBook Those tater tots aren't poutine though, lol. It ain't poutine with melted cheese- it has to be cheese curds. I've had tater tot poutine, though! Minnesota had some cuisine perks despite The Great Sweet Tea Incident- they have a tater tot food truck that sells legit poutine tater tots. 👍🏼 6y
rustoryhuf @BookBabe and you need to relocate to my town and lead book clubs. What say you? 6y
courtney 😩😩😩😩😩😩😩😫😫😫 6y
Laalaleighh @mrbook brew tea. Add enough sugar to almost call it syrup. Cool. Drink. Voila. 6y
Laalaleighh @bookishfeminist @laurabeth I'm a Mississippi girl. If you cut me I bleed sweet tea. Also- McAlisters is famous for their tea, I don't care for their menu but I get their tea pretty often as it's the closest thing to real sweet tea in blacksburg I can find. (Bf hates tea, no point in making my own) 6y
BookishFeminist @Laalaleighh Blasphemy! Also there's McAlisters down on Blacksburg? Yes! I wonder where the closest one is to me. We've got bojangles but it's a mixed bag when it comes to whether DC has southern chains or not. Also @MrBook for homemade use Lipton or something similar. Don't get fancy. 6y
Laalaleighh @BookishFeminist it's new. I cried when it opened (not really, but on the inside) no fancy sweet tea. Virgin monkeys from Ceylon need not apply 🙅🏻🙈🙉🙊 6y
LauraBeth My nearest Bojangles is a mile away and sits across the street from McAlisters 😂 @Laalaleighh @BookishFeminist @MrBook 6y
BookishFeminist @Laalaleighh 😂😂 Yep! Also we have a McAlisters in Herndon! 😀😀 6y
BookishFeminist @LauraBeth Well why don't you just rub it in a little bit more 😂😂 6y
Laalaleighh @LauraBeth I bet you can get decent cheese grits and fried green tomatoes/ okra anytime you want too. 😔 6y
LauraBeth On the downside to the tea and the grits and the fried green tomatoes - @BookishFeminist and @Laalaleighh - I have to put up with a lot of intolerant folks 😔 6y
Laalaleighh @LauraBeth you are right. Thanks for the reminder. Cook my own cheese grits and appreciate the open-mindedness of the not-south it is. 6y
MrBook @BookishFeminist @Laalaleighh @LauraBeth Southern gals are the best 😂👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻👌🏻!! (After @BookBabe , of course 😉👌🏻.) This is a superb conversation. And thank you for the recs & insights 😊👍🏻. @Laalaleighh Your bf doesn't drink tea and I don't drink coffee, so him & I can be weirdos together 😂👏🏻🙌🏻. 6y
MrBook @rustoryhuf Seems to be my niche speciality, so why not 😂👏🏻👍🏻? Where are you? @courtney Awww, what's the matter 😳? 6y

MrBook @Laalaleighh 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 *pauses for air*....😂😂😂😂😂😂👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻!!! Well, my favorite ice cream is Ben & Jerry's Coffee Coffee Buzz Buzz Buzz, and my second favorite is Hagen Dazs Coffee. Does that offset things a bit or percolate a deeper mystery then at first brew? 😂😂😂😂 6y
MrBook @courtney Lol, oh. Want me to ship you a few bags? 😁👍🏻 6y

Lizpixie @Laalaleighh wow. And I thought the fact my hubby refuses to eat tomatoes but loves pasta, tomato sauce, baked beans etc was strange. And my daughter, who refuses to eat oranges but loves orange juice. And @MrBook coffee?? Really??? Go stand in the corner young man😠 6y
rustoryhuf @MrBook I'm in the wonderful state of Georgia! Grits, sweet tea, pecans, peaches, & peanuts! 6y
Laalaleighh @Lizpixie wait, does he love pasta with tomato sauce??!?!?!!?!!!!!!!????! 6y
MrBook @Lizpixie 😂👏🏻👍🏻 6y
MrBook @rustoryhuf Georgia is a wonderful state 😁👍🏻! 6y
Lizpixie @Laalaleighh yes, yes he does. He scoffs down spaghetti bolognaise & lasagna like its his last meal, and pizza too. 6y
Laalaleighh @Lizpixie 😳😳😳😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 6y
MrBook @Lizpixie @Laalaleighh I love scampi & piccata; @BookBabe prefers the creamy sauces with vodka topping her list. Does anyone out anchovies on their pizzas anymore? I still see that option on pizza box sides sometimes lol. 6y
kspenmoll I have been sooooo lucky to have a neighbor who grew up in Alabama & makes me sweet tea, an amazing coleslaw ( ingredients secret) & all kinds of southern delights. 😊 6y
MrBook @kspenmoll 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👌🏻 6y
Adam_Z I read that a couple years ago on a friend's recommendation... Enjoyed it more than I thought I would. 👍 6y
MrBook @Adam_Z It's interesting how some books get all the hype and disappoint while others lean quietly toward hesitancy yet exceed expectations 😊👍🏻. 6y

I've forsaken the BBQs, and instead curled up with a cup of tea and a good book. A VERY good book. This is the moment of truth—my final reading session with this intense and unexpected love story. I haven't been able to put it down. Can't wait to see how it ends! 🤗📚☕️

LauraBeth Sounds like a good Labor Day to me 😀 6y

jessdean Wherever u are it looks SUPER cozy😍 6y
MrsV We're not going to any BBQ's either. I'm reading and checking Litsy postings, the kids are having movie marathons, MrV is currently mowing, but other than that taking a day off from having to be anywhere. 6y
Coleen ❤️ this book! Still waiting for the sequel, if it ever comes.... 6y
TheBookbabeblog84 Is that's candle warmer to keep your tea warm!? I need that lol 6y
Zelma Same here. We have the second day in a row of thunder, ominous clouds, and rain. I have coffee, cats, and books now with tomato soup, grilled cheese, and football on tap tonight. Perfect day. 6y
Jlee745 Me too😍 6y

Sunday #booknbrunch with @MrBook at our favorite spot — Starting the day right with poached eggs florentine Atlantic with lox, spinach, and herb cream sauce, a fresh fruit cup, and a magnificent Mimosa. 😊🍳🍾🍊🍉📚

An interesting romance that hovers around 4 stars. Well-written and well-executed plot. 2 souls struggle to come together over many reincarnated lifetimes, while another keeps them apart. A better done sibling to "The Memory Painter" with tones of Claire North's Harry August and "Touch". Sophia &, especially, Daniel were frustrating in different ways, lol. A beautiful story nonetheless. #PairWith: Nicolas Feuillatte Brut Champagne, chilled.

#BookNMunchies! MrBook's famous tortilla plate: tortilla chips, mozzarella & cheddar & provolone shredded cheeses, black olives, hard salami, pepperoni, a secret amalgamation of spices (add salsa and sour cream if you like). Nuke it, and voila! In 5 minutes you've got the perfect snack to go with any book entrée ????! @BookBabe likes some marinated artichoke hearts on hers also. This has been another episode of #MrBookBookBabeKitchen ???.

MrBook @JPrecht 😂😁👍🏻! We take pleasure in providing vicarious living to those who seek it from time to time, lol. It's almost like a real-time book 😊! @teainthelibrary Thank you 😁!!! Hope it gives it some ideas. One of the great things about food is the enormous variety and outlets to get it. If one is bored with their food choices, it's a moral duty for the rest of us to show them what's out there 😊👍🏻. 6y
MrBook @Matilda Oh, it was, thank you 😊👍🏻! Cracker Barrek can make some really great pancakes and bacon! Eggs are usually a little to be desired, but overall the grub is excellent 😎👌🏻. @Sarahr875 Thank you for the insight! I will most assuredly let you know my thoughts when done. This is the September selection for the Pocono Book Club that @BookBabe and I run 😁. 6y
Coleen Loved this book! 6y
MrBook @WordWaller Thank you! And @BookBabe and I truly appreciate all of you that are an active part of the @Litsy community. You've all rekindled some extra positivity within us that current events has dampened, ya know? I don't even care if we disagree on current events or about a book. You're passionate about books and life and creativity and sharing the simple joys of life. And convince your hubby that #readingdates are good for health 😆!!! 😂 6y
MrBook @Laura317 We love Cracker Barrel 😁, and this location sits at the halfway mark between us and NYC, so we stop here often. Reading at meals makes sense though, because how much talking can one do with a mouth full of food 😂! And half the time one talks, food is spittling out of one's mouth 😜! 6y

My and @BookBabe 's book clubs' selections for August and September. We've got a great line-up ahead of us, chosen by polls among our members. 😎 Any particular ones strike your fancy?

Reagan The Girls and The Witches are top of my tbr right now. It is one of my favourite Stephen King books, I haven't read it for years because it scared me so bad the last time. 6y
itsbrb Still hope to get to It at some point. Only one I've read of his so far is Bag of Bones. 6y

Blair_Reads I've been wanting to read The Girls! 6y
Sweettartlaura Let me know how The Witches is - been meaning to read that for a while now. 6y
DaniRa I love the chalkboard list idea! 6y
DebReads4fun Currently reading and really enjoying Secret Wisdom Of The Earth. 6y
LaurenMagoo My Name is Memory is an all-time favorite of mine. I hope you enjoy it. 6y
LibrarianJen I read excerpts of David McCullough's The Great Bridge in undergrad (one of my majors is History). Maybe I should go back and read the whole thing. 🤔 6y
JacqMac The Girls is on my stack for next week. The Witches is in my wish list. And It is just an awesome classic you can read again and again. 6y
courtney My husband and I just finished watching Stranger Things, and It was on a list of books you should read once you've finished watching the show and it might have to move up my TBR list 6y
HollyB3 @MrBook I finished IT a couple of months ago. It's quite a commitment (over 900 pages) but it's worth the time. Great book. 6y
candc320 Loved My Name is Memory but wish the author had followed through with writing a sequel. The end begs for more! 6y
BilboBookends The Girls is a awesome pick! 6y
Cupofjo My name is memory is on my tbr list (and already on my shelf waiting!) 6y
Hollie I loved My Name is Memory! 6y
MrBook @Rjanke I like your TBR list ???. "It" was one of the few books to really scare me! 6y
MrBook @itsbrb Bones is pretty good on audio 😊. Hopefully, you'll find it to be a great read! 😎👍🏻 6y
MrBook @Karkar Me too! 😁 6y
MrBook @MrsCappuccina 😂😂😂👍🏻 6y
MrBook @Coleen Looking forward to reading it! 😊 Hopefully a sequel is in the pipeline. You could always petition the author, lol! 6y
MrBook @Blair_Reads Well, @BookBabe read it and threatened me with a paintbrush to put it on the next month's read 😂. So that tells you how good it is. 6y

I absolutely loved this book. I never say no to books involving reincarnation. Im still holding out for a sequel.

EliseWhitmore @RegularlyReads I really enjoyed this book too and still think about the need for a sequel! 6y

My Name is Memory | Ann Brashares
post image

Adoro la tematica dei viaggi nel tempo, infatti "La moglie dell'uomo che viaggiava nel tempo" è uno dei miei romanzi preferiti, come lo è diventato "Grande amore" (My name is Memory) di Ann Brashares. Scrittura potente, visiva e assolutamente romantica. ❤️
