Book Review: Forgotten by Cat Patrick

Synopsis from Goodreads
Each night when 16 year-old London Lane goes to sleep, her whole world disappears. In the morning, all that's left is a note telling her about a day she can't remember. The whole scenario doesn't exactly make high school or dating that hot guy whose name she can't seem to recall any easier. But when London starts experiencing disturbing visions she can't make sense of, she realizes it's time to learn a little more about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.

Part psychological drama, part romance, and part mystery, this thought-provoking novel will inspire readers to consider the what-if's in their own lives and recognize the power they have to control their destinies

Book Title: Forgotten

Book Review

forgotten is about London Lane, London is your very normal teenage girl except she hides a secret-- she isn't able to know what her past was, every time she goes to sleep she forgets what happened to her yesterday, enable to keep track of what she did recently she makes a note before she goes to sleep. but even though she doesn't know what her past was she is able to see through the future.

Forgotten's premise is something fresh and new. right? i was so intrigued with this book cause everything is just so new to me, Imagine living a life like London's? i can say that her life is really tough cause she isn't able to remember anything regarding her past, i mean what fun would it be to know things from the future but your past is blank? and everyday you have to make notes of what you've done recently enable to keep track of what you are doing, when i was reading this i can't help but feel so pained regarding London's situation I was like " and i thought my life is tough!?"

the book is something i would have finished with just one sitting cause of the very fast paced plot and the mystery is something that will make you grab on the edge of your seat. i was so much looking forward on what is London's dream about, i was thinking that maybe it's her funeral that she is seeing, but i was wrong (Super Major WRONG).
the other thing that i really appreciate about this book is maybe the thought that there is really someone out there for you like there is actually a person that is meant to be with you and even disregarding your unnatural abilities, and even accepting you for what you are  like how Luke still loved London even though he bears the tought that London won't be able to remember her the moment she wakes up (See? See? *pokes*)

Overall : A nice book, i would have given this one a 5 star rating cause of the story's originality but i was just so disappointed with the ending, if i have this book on a hard copy i would have juggle all through it's pages over and over again just to make sure i am reading it's ending, i guess i have no words to describe what the ending is i can't call it a happy ending or a cliff-hanger. so my supposedly 5 star rating reduced to 3 stars, but forgotten is a good book, i do recommend it to readers who likes to have a taste for contemporary YA Fiction. :)
