Top 5 Wednesday #3

Posted 17th January 2018 by Wattle in Blog Hops & Memes / 16 Comments

Haven’t quite got around to writing any reviews this week, oops! So Top 5 Wednesday to the rescue!

This week the topic is: Forgettable Books

Whether you loved or hated them at the time, these are books that you just don’t really remember…

1. Christmas at the Gingerbread Café by Rebecca Raisin
I read this, rated it 2 stars. And remember nothing at all about it at all.

2. The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line by Rob Thomas and Jennifer Graham
I love the Veronica Mars tv series, and pledged to the kickstarter for the movie as soon as they opened it to international folk. So when books were announced I was intrigued! Upon reading this I apparently liked it (4 stars), I even reviewed it! But again…the content escapes me. Oh well, will just have to re-read it before I read the second one 🙂

3. Hope In Every Raindrop by Wesley Banks
This one I’m pretty sure I did as part of a blog tour. Unlike the last two, I remember bits and pieces; but not enough to get any real idea of what it was about.

4. Pawn by Aimee Carter
Read it, 5 stars! Remember…absolutely nothing lol I was going to continue the series, and then I decided not to (I get the feeling my initial reaction was an overreaction) *shrugs*

5. Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris
The 11th of the Sookie Stackhouse series. Probably a good thing I remember nothing, I gave it 1 star 😆

  1. I absolutely loved Pawn as well and even read the entire series, I can’t remember a thing about it either. I’m terrible when it comes to books, it needs to be unique or have a real impact on me to be able to remember. Even then I can’t remember character names. I blame this on getting old of course. I tried the Sookie Stackhouse series and bought the first six or so books when I first started reading again, it was one of the series recommended to me if you liked Twilight but just couldn’t get into it.

    • lol I forget some books almost as soon as I’ve finished reading them, it’s pretty awful isn’t it?

      The Sookie Sackhouse books are…something. I enjoyed the first 5 or so but it all went to hell after that; the writing really isn’t the best (each time I came back to the series it took me a few chapters to get back into the rhythm of it 🙁 ) also plot holes galore *sigh*

  2. There are quite a few books I don’t remember much about. That’s kind of what I’m trying to avoid this year, reading books I know will be forgettable for me. But when you read as many books as we book bloggers do, it’s kind of unavoidable to forget. Like, we just *can’t* remember everything about hundreds and hundreds of books!

    • I feel like perhaps we read too much to remember everything (and yet I remember insignificant crap from my childhood, but details 😆 )

  3. I have a bunch of books like that as well were I just don’t remember a lot about them. Some 3 star books, but also a bunch of 4 and 5 stars that I know I enjoyed and can barely remember anything. Although most of the time I do remember at least some parts. But there definitely are some books that are more forgettable than others for some reason.

    • I think if I were to flip through the books it might come back to me, but I don’t think I own most of them anymore! At least some were enjoyable at the time 🙂

  4. I was about to feel disappointed that I hadn’t read these when I noticed the prompt, so now I’m kind of relieved? XD It’s weird because sometimes we LOOVE some books, but just… they’re not unforgettable. That’s why even though I can be psyched about a book at first, I wait until I’ve read a few more to add it to my mental list of favorites, even if it was a 5 star read.


    • lol some books are so memorable, but they’re usually books I’ve re-read multiple times. Perhaps it takes a while to sink in 😛

      Thank you!

  5. Isn’t that funny? There are books I remember next to nothing about. I read one of the Rebecca Raisin ones too and enjoyed it though. I read the first of the Charlaine Harris books and didn’t like it, I remember that much about it lol. Enjoy your weekend!

    • I must admit I’m not a huge fan of Charlaine Harris’s writing, but I do like her characters (…before she gives them personality transplants *ahem*), the Sookie Stackhouse series is also full of plot holes. I read an interview once where she said it was impossible for her to keep track of everything; she was also heavily influenced by the tv series toward the end. And yet…I read almost all of them (I still intend to read the last one one day!)
