Top 5 Wednesday: Forgettable Books

What is Top 5 Wednesday?

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. Here is the link for the Goodreads group where you can find the list of topics and such. 

This weeks topic is: Forgettable Books

1. Every Mountain Made Low by Alex White

Even whilst I was reading Every Mountain Made Low I had no clue what was going on so heaven help me try and recall it now. This novel felt far to chaotic, as though there were multiple plots condensed into one book.

3. The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness

Oh I wanted to love this. I really did. But similarly to Every Mountain Made Low, The Rest of Us Just Live Here seemed to have two plots running parallel. I know that's part of the premise that you get the 'chosen ones' story as well as the collateral characters but I would've loved this novel so much more if there wasn't any of that odd paranormal-ness (is this a word? It is now).

3. Freeks by Amanda Hocking

After reading Caraval (review here) I wanted all the circus fiction, so I read Freeks. I loved it. I read it in about three sittings whilst on holiday...but now I can't remember anything about the book. It wasn't bad at all. As I mentioned I loved it. But for some reason the entire premise seems to have leaked out of my brain...

4. False Hearts by Laura Lam

Again, I really liked False Hearts. It was a very unique novel from what I do recall. Very futuristic, with interesting technology. I may have to reread this one.

5. Hot Milk by Deborah Levy

Yet another book I loved and now can't really remember. This again I read really quickly, I think that might be what makes me forget a lot of the plot. If I inhale the book!

Thank-you for reading,

    Gotta love it when you’re like “I Loved the book! I don’t remember why I loved the book, but I did love it!” I’ve definitely had that happen a few times to me!

      It happens more than I like to admit…
