Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. Please take a moment to pop over and say hi to Jana on her blog!
Today’s topic is one that is near and dear to my heart. I have read about six books so far this year, and I can’t remember all the fine details. And that is in a span of three weeks. So when I saw that the topic was Ten Books I Loved, But Can’t Remember Anything About I knew I would have NO PROBLEM with this list. I am also going to try and focus on books I haven’t featured on TTT before. As always, in no particular order. Also, as I am unsure about some of the details, some of what I remember may be spoilers. Sorry if they are!
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon – Pretty much all I remember about this book is that there was an underground library.
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman – I know this one was one of my favourites the year I read it. It had a hidden world with a very macabre feel to it. And it takes place in London. Again, that is all I got for you.
Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson – I remember the magic system in this book, because it is based on metals. I also remember the ending, which I won’t say anything about. But I don’t remember anything else!
Thief’s Magic by Trudi Canavan – Another one I remember absolutely loving, and having many different theories about. But I don’t remember a SINGLE thing about this other than there is a male character and a female character and it swaps POV between them.
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd – I know comparisons have been made between this and The Help because both deal with racism in America. I know it involves a little girl running away and learning about beekeeping from some black women in the 60’s. But I can’t remember the big climax or what made her run away in the first place?
The Rook by Daniel O’Malley – I remember that this is about a special agent who was targeted by like, a supernatural assassin or something? And it starts with amnesia. And she had a really unique name. But yeah, other than that, I don’t remember anything. I don’t remember why she has amnesia or if she gets her memories back or anything.
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier – I know this is considered a classic, and that it involves a second wife and a supposedly haunted house. I feel like the big reveal is on the tip of my tongue, but I can’t quite remember it!
The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker – I literally cannot remember anything about this book, but apparently I gave it five stars!
The Girl With All The Gifts by M.R. Carey – I know this involves zombie children, and I remember the ending, but I don’t remember anything else.
The Buried Life by Carrie Patel – This was a really intriguing and unique novel… that much I remember. It was about an underground city, and that is all I got. No inkling of the plot or the characters.
Do you have problems remembering the details in books? Are you like me where you forget a lot, or do you only find yourself missing the finer points? Have you read any of the books I mentioned, and if so, do you remember more than I do? What books do you remember just loving, but can’t remember anything else about? Comment below, and link me up to your Top Ten Tuesday!
Stay bookish, lovelies!
