The plot is interesting, original & fresh however the pacing is super slow. You‘ll have to push through the first 13 chapters where it‘s all just explanations & meeting characters, but things begin pick up after chapter 15. There‘s also a plot twist during the rising action of the story, but the villain is very predictable. An interesting read, but the slow pacing is something to look out for if you plan to pick up this book.
I liked the ideas presented here, but many of the main characters were just SO unlikable and the pacing was just.. painful. Nothing action-wise happens until the last quarter of the book. That said, I'm interested enough in what might happen to these people to read the sequel, which I own anyway so why not haha
If you enjoyed the Divergent Series I think you‘d really enjoy this stand alone novel. It brings you on many twists and turns and throws many unexpected things at you. A very good love story, also makes you love characters you used to hate. 9/10
Been having a bit of a "what's the point in reading when I forget so much of what I've read moment lately" The bf sent me this article today and I really love its perspective. https://medium.com/the-polymath-project/its-okay-to-forget-what-you-read-f4ef1c3...
I stand undefeated! I actually found some #gold for the #bookcolortag @KassKho threw my way.
I am just as surprised as you are that there was more #colorstacking to do first thing this morning - and that gold is a thing!

In the city of Canaan, what isn't written, isn't remembered. The Forgetting wipes you of your memories and all you have is your book to guide you. But Nadia remembers everything. #MemoriesRemain #90sInJuly
This was such a unique book! I loved it!!!
The story started off a little slow to me and it took me a while to get into it. But then I started to understand more of what was going on and I was hooked!
I fell in love with the characters. And I was so intrigued by the plot!! The Forgetting really got me thinking about how important our memories are.
I highly recommend if you're looking for a different dystopian!
The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron inspired poem —
– the knowledge she had,
Had moved onto the light weight in her clammy hand;
Her mind was as empty as a glass. ✨
This is me attempting to be cool😆rekindling my love for poetry again! I have very little idea of what this novel is about, but I felt the need to be creative and came up with this short piece❤️
Do you like poems?
I got pretty thoughtful with this book, becouse seriously you are nothingg without your memories, you don't know if you are a good or a bad person, you don't know how you feel about someone, the only thing that I know now, is that I'm going to start a Diary 😂
The premise for this story was good, but it was much like other dystopian YA novels overall. I did like that there was no love triangle and that the female protagonist wasn't helpless. The narration for this audiobook did get on my nerves a little; she always sounded on the verge of tears. Also, every time she said "Anson the Planter", I heard "ants in the planter". It was a little distracting. The plot and writing was solid, though.
I loved Nadia the main character. I found the book completely engaging. So many layers being revealed. I also really enjoyed the narrator. She did a strong job and definitely added to the experience. I will find myself thinking about the people of Cannon.
Read this with the intent to inspire myself to write! Great book! Engrossing read! Makes you feel for the characters! Could totally see this becoming a movie--if you liked The Maze Runner or the Allegiant series, you'll like this. Can't wait to read more by this author if her other work is like this.
