The Forgetting
The Forgetting | Sharon Cameron
What isn't written, isn't remembered. Even your crimes. Nadia lives in the city of Canaan, where life is safe and structured, hemmed in by white stone walls and no memory of what came before. But every twelve years the city descends into the bloody chaos of the Forgetting, a day of no remorse, when each person's memories -- of parents, children, love, life, and self -- are lost. Unless they have been written. In Canaan, your book is your truth and your identity, and Nadia knows exactly who hasn't written the truth. Because Nadia is the only person in Canaan who has never forgotten. But when Nadia begins to use her memories to solve the mysteries of Canaan, she discovers truths about herself and Gray, the handsome glassblower, that will change her world forever. As the anarchy of the Forgetting approaches, Nadia and Gray must stop an unseen enemy that threatens both their city and their own existence - before the people can forget the truth. And before Gray can forget her.

Started this one yesterday at the insistence of my 13yo. This has become one of her all time favorites. I see why! Less than 100 pages in & I'm hooked. A fresh dystopian take! And her covers are swoon-worthy. #currentread #currentlyreading

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 hate pain, but I hate fear more, and I‘ve eaten fear everyday of my life because of the Forgetting. Today I will spit it out.

Slajaunie I have read this one. It was an interesting read. I have book two on my TBR but that is a long list. Enjoy! 11mo

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

It took me more than a year to finally get to this one. It‘s an interesting book. It has elements that fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent will enjoy, but it‘s definitely original.

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

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?

MayJasper I am trying to get into poetry. So far I have added some books to my TBR. Must try harder! 2y

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.

R.Lyn-Romance-Reads I bought this book a while ago and started reading it early last month and after a chapter put it down. I couldn't get into it. I am going to give it another shot soon. 2y

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.

I picked this book up after browsing my local library. I'm a fan of sci-fi teen books. This was a good read and kept me entertained. I did not see the twist coming, and it kept me guessing.
