Forgotten review

Description: Each night when 16 year-old London Lane goes to sleep, her whole world disappears. In the morning, all that's left is a note telling her about a day she can't remember. The whole scenario doesn't exactly make high school or dating that hot guy whose name she can't seem to recall any easier. But when London starts experiencing disturbing visions she can't make sense of, she realizes it's time to learn a little more about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.

Part psychological drama, part romance, and part mystery, this thought-provoking novel will inspire readers to consider the what-if's in their own lives and recognize the power they have to control their destinies.

My thoughts: When the description said London could look into the future but not the past, this wasn’t what I expected. It was different but better. I had high expectations for this story and thankfully I wasn’t disappointed. 

I was impressed by the way London’s ability was depicted. Although it’s not natural in real life for people to see into the future, the people in London’s life adapted to her “specialness” as if it wasn’t anymore abnormal her not remembering her past.

It was really cool (or really bad depending on how you look at it) that she could see other people’s futures, or that she “remembered” people around her not because of the past, but because they were in her future. The aspect was one of the main things that kept the story interesting.

What made Forgotten extra special was her relationship with Luke. Normally the male love interest is deemed a bad boy and is subject to jerk tendencies, but Luke was different. He was kind and thoughtful AND gorgeous. And because of the way he cared and respected London, he’s now on my list of top guys in YA.

Something extra: I really liked that London’s mom was in the story. She wasn’t a main character but it was nice to see a good parent in a YA book. A lot of times they’re either nonexistent or not that likeable, but London’s mom was different, even if she didn’t always make the best choices.


  1. Hi!
    I totally agree with the mum thought, actually I haven't thought about that and you're right :P
    By the way, where did you find this cover? Is not either US and UK, so maybe it is from another country?

  2. I've been trying to find out which country it came from too. I just choose it on Google images because I liked it better than the US cover.
