Top Five Wednesday: Forgettable Books


The book blogging community, myself included, often shouts from the rooftops talks about our most unforgettable reads, but Today’s Top Five Wednesday prompts us to do the opposite. Whether I loved them or hated them, today I’ll be discussing five books that I really just don’t remember.. maybe reading a lot does come with one consequence???

The Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey (Read in 2015)The 5th Wave trilogy is just one of those series that I’ll never understand the hype over, especially when it came to The Infinite Sea. Frankly, there was nothing left to remember, let alone forget, as this book just jumped form POV to POV and gave no real resolution or answers to The 5th Wave.

What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick (Read in 2015)– I was very disappointed reading What I Thought Was True because I absolutely adored Huntley Fitzpatrick’s, My Life Next Door. As expected from today’s prompt, I forget almost everything about this one, other than that the main character worked for a catering company???

Truthwitch by Susan Dennard (Read in 2016)– It took me about halfway through to get really into this fantasy read because I struggled with a bunch of new terms being thrown at me during the very beginning of the book. When it comes to fantasy reads, I expect a lot of world-building in the beginning, whereas in Truthwitch, our main protagonists jump right into their story/conflict. I think I might’ve picked up Windwitch if I remembered more of the plot details from Truthwitch—if you love intricate/heavily fantasy books, this could be an unforgettable one for you!

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson (Read in 2016)Nimona being an forgettable read for me really disappoints me because Noelle Stevenson is a well-respected graphic novelist in the book community. I do really enjoy her artwork and artistic talent, but I really don’t remember the novel’s plot having a lot of substance, or at least something for me to remember!

The Museum of Intangible Things by Wendy Wunder (Read in 2017)The Museum of Intangible Things is a book that I unfortunately wish I didn’t pick up and really don’t remember other than having really weird vibes and not the greatest depiction of mental illness. Plus aliens.

  1. Uhhh I don’t think I’ll be continuing with the 5th Wave series now Haley… I was always on the bench about whether to pick up the sequel or not… Funny connection I was looking at books that have been optioned for movies and many of them are 3 star… the rating I gave the 5th Wave!
