Top Ten Books I Really Liked But Can’t Remember Much About

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature that was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018.  Each week there is a new topic and this week’s topic is: Ten Books I Really Liked But Can’t Remember Anything/Much About.

This actually happens to me more often than I would like.  I love a book, but then can’t always quite remember what happened in that book later on when I try to recall it.  I vaguely remember some things from the book but not enough to have a conversation about the book if someone were to ask me about it haha.

At some point I would like to read all of these books again because I really do remember enjoying them… I just have a hard time remember everything that happened.

Do we share any of the same books?  What are some of your books you remember really liking but not much about the actual book?

I’ve still been on my audiobook kick lately.  I finished book 2 of The Raven Cycle and it was awesome!  Definitely gave me a new perspective on Ronan and bumped him up to the #2 slot in my ranking of the boys.  I also listened to the audiobook for Locke & Key.  I’ve said before that I don’t listen to audio unless I’ve read a physical copy of the book first but this one was free.  I think that it just didn’t translate well to audio and I would be much more interested in reading the graphic novel.  I also did an audiobook re-read of The Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy by Nora Roberts.  I really enjoyed experiencing this series again via audio.

Currently I am reading Blue Lily, Lily Blue.  I am really enjoying it and I can’t wait to see where it goes.  I just haven’t been in the mood to read lately so it’s taking me longer to read it than it normally would.  I’m also doing an audiobook re-read of Shadow and Bone.  I absolutely LOVE the Grisha trilogy so I am totally loving re-experiencing it via audio.

As soon as I finish BLLB I will immediately jump into The Raven King!  I am so excited for that.  And then after I have finished that I will move on to The Rose & the Dagger which I am also super excited for!  I can’t wait to get back to Shazi and Khalid.  I will also be continuing my audio re-read of The Grisha Trilogy.

Well, without the audiobooks I would have had a pretty unimpressive week of reading.  I read the SUPER short story, The Crown & the Arrow and then I finally finished Passenger by Alexandra Bracken.  I had 4 audiobook re-reads – Incendiary, Iniquity, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

Currently I am trying to catch up in The Raven Cycle with The Dream Thieves.  I am really not far into it but am interested to see where this is going.  I also started the audiobook for Locke & Key.  Normally I only listen to audiobooks for books I have physically read before but this one has a full dramatized cast so I figured it would hold my attention more.

After I finish The Dream Thieves, I am going to move on to either The Rose & the Dagger or Blue Lily, Lily Blue.  I preordered my copy of The Raven King from Fountain Bookstore in VA so I don’t anticipate receiving it for at least a week or two so I don’t mind putting off BLLB until closer to receiving the final book in this awesome series.  Plus I am SUPER eager to start The Rose & the Dagger because I LOVED The Wrath & the Dawn!

I have still been on my audiobook kick so I have recently reread books 1-3 of the Premonition series by Amy A. Bartol.  It’s one of my favorite series but I’m a little disappointed in the way the narrator reads the parts of my favorite character, Brennus.  I also finished my library e-book of Seveneves by Neal Stephenson.  This book was so good!  I normally don’t go for heavy sci-fi/space books but this was so fascinating!  Once it got into the second part though it got a little dull for me, but it definitely picked back up.

Since I finished my library e-book on Monday, I finally have time to pick up Passenger again.  I’m reading it for book club and even though I haven’t gotten very far yet, it’s really hooked my interest.  I’m also currently re-reading book 4 of the Premonition series via audio.

And with less than a week now until The Raven King is released, it’s going to be high time I get around to reading book 2&3 in preparation.  I preordered TRK from Fountain Bookstore in VA because they had a really cool preorder deal to get a doodle copy with a special signed bookplate from Maggie.  I know I won’t be receiving the book on the day it is released so I should have time to read both books before it arrives.  I also have The Rose and the Dagger preordered from Amazon and that will arrive on the release date next Tuesday so if I run out of books to read before TRK comes, I will be picking that one up immediately.

I had a FANTASTIC reading week!  Several of the books I read were shorter but it still helped a lot to add towards my 2016 Read My Books Challenge.  I read 4 books that count towards that goal.  And I listened to 3 audiobooks.  I read The Winner’s Crime in anticipation of The Winner’s Kiss being released yesterday.  It was really good.  Then I added a couple Neil Gaiman titles under my belt.  Both of them were pretty good.  The illustrations in The Sleeper and the Spindle were gorgeous!  Last night I stayed up an hour past my usual bed time to finish And Then There Were None.  It was my first Agatha Christie novel and I will definitely be reading more of her books in the future!  That book was awesome!

I did have one hiccup in the reading week and that was a DNF of Shatter Me.  I was so excited to read this one because people rave about it.  Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get into the writing style.  Too many metaphors and similes that completely took away from what was actually happening so it was just a confusing mess.

Currently I am on my 3rd reread of Shattered Blue by Lauren Bird Horowitz.  This time around I’ve been marking my favorite passages and important things to remember for book 2.  I am currently listening to Sea of Stars by Amy A. Bartol.  It is the second book in the Kricket series.  I should be finished with it by the end of the work day.  And this morning I started The Winner’s Kiss!  I’m only 40 pages in so far but I am really enjoying it already.  Very interested to see what is in store for Arin and Kestrel in this series conclusion.

www33016upnext

Up next I will be starting The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater.  The Raven King (the series conclusion) will be released at the end of April so I need to prepare myself to be able to read that immediately.  After The Dream Thieves I will be moving on to book 3 – Blue Lily, Lily Blue – but I didn’t include it in this list because I’m not sure if I will get to it before next week.  My next audio re-read will be the conclusion to the Kricket series, Darken the Stars.  I will be starting this one tomorrow at work.
