9 Unforgettable stories about characters who can’t remember

The theme for this weeks Top Ten Tuesday over at The Broke and the Bookish is ten books that feature characters __________ which fits pretty well with a post I already had planned about books dealing with memory loss or amnesia.

I’m not sure if this is just my general oddness but to me there has always been something compelling about stories with characters suffering from amnesia or memory loss. It’s one of those plotlines that I literally can’t resist. Just put the words memory or amnesia in the blurb and I’m in. It just raises so many fascinating questions and ideas for me. How much of who you are is determined by your memories and experiences and would you be different without them? Is it better to remember painful experiences or would you prefer to forget? What happens if you can’t remember things? Will it drive you nuts or could you just move past it?

Wait, where was I again??

Anyway, I thought it would be fun (mostly for me tbh) to do a post about the books I’ve read with characters suffering from memory loss or amnesia. I haven’t necessarily loved all of them but they’ve definitely fascinated me. I should say that this post is spoiler free so I’ve deliberately excluded any books where the amnesia thing gives away a plot twist.

YA

Originally I didn’t think there were many YA stories about characters who’ve lost their memory but when I started to think about it turns out there are quite a few. Secret pasts, repressed memories are actually pretty common tropes and even as I’m writing this another couple of books have popped into my head but I thought I’d go with a couple of recent reads.


The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr

The One Memory of Flora Banks

Seventeen-year-old Flora Banks has no short-term memory. Her mind resets itself several times a day, and has since the age of ten, when the tumor that was removed from Flora’s brain took with it her ability to make new memories. That is, until she kisses Drake, her best friend’s boyfriend, the night before he leaves town. Miraculously, this one memory breaks through Flora’s fractured mind, and sticks. Flora is convinced that Drake is responsible for restoring her memory and making her whole again. So when an encouraging email from Drake suggests she meet him on the other side of the world, Flora knows with certainty that this is the first step toward reclaiming her life.

With little more than the words “be brave” inked into her skin, and written reminders of who she is and why her memory is so limited, Flora sets off on an impossible journey to Svalbard, Norway, the land of the midnight sun, determined to find Drake. But from the moment she arrives in the arctic, nothing is quite as it seems, and Flora must “be brave” if she is ever to learn the truth about herself, and to make it safely home.

This is an absolutely brilliant book and one of my favorites this year. Main character Flora can’t retain any new memories for more than a few hours so has to constantly leave herself notes for even the most basic information. The story is a little repetitive as you’re inside her head but there’s something very likeable about Flora that makes it an irresistible read


We Were Liars by E Lockhart

We Were Liars

We are the Liars.

We are beautiful, privileged and live a life of carefree luxury.

We are cracked and broken.

A story of love and romance.

A tale of tragedy.

Which are lies?

Which is truth?

You decide.

I’m not giving anything much away when I say that central to the plot is the fact that the main character has no memory of a specific event. I’m saying no more than this as it’s a book you really need to go into blind like I did and pretty much everything is a spoiler. What I will say is that this is a brilliant book and was completely different from what I expected it to be.


Science Fiction

Let’s face it they’ve been mucking around with people’s memories in sci fi since the very beginning and you could probably come up with a hundred books fairly easily but I’m limiting myself to just one that really fascinated me.

The Maze Runner by James Dashner

The Maze Runner (Maze Runner, #1)

 If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Everything is going to change.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

Remember. Survive. Run.

OK safe to say this is not my favorite book (I struggled) but the best thing about it is that absolutely no one remembers anything from their life prior to entering the Glade. They don’t know where they are, why they are there or even who they are. I loved this idea of mass memory loss and the impact it has on group dynamics.


New Adult

I don’t think I’ve come across too many new adult books with this as a storyline, off the top of my head I can only think of a couple and one is a spoiler so I’ll just stick with the one.

Never, Never by Colleen Hoover & Tarynn Fisher

Never Never (Never Never, #1)

Best friends since they could walk. In love since the age of fourteen.

Complete strangers since this morning.

He’ll do anything to remember. She’ll do anything to forget.

This is actually a series of three novella’s rather than one book and parts one and two are absolutely brilliant (part three is a disappointment). It’s about two teens who suddenly have no memory of who they are. Again I love the who are you when you can’t remember aspects of this story and it also asks the question if you weren’t a nice person is it better leave your memories lost.


Thriller

Amnesia is definitely becoming a pretty common trope in thrillers too, and I totally blame the first book below:

Before I Go To Sleep by S.J. Watson

Before I Go To Sleep‘As I sleep, my mind will erase everything I did today. I will wake up tomorrow as I did this morning. Thinking I’m still a child. Thinking I have a whole lifetime of choice ahead of me …’ Memories define us. So what if you lost yours every time you went to sleep? Your name, your identity, your past, even the people you love—all forgotten overnight. And the one person you trust may only be telling you half the story. Welcome to Christine’s life.

This is probably one of the first thrillers I remember reading with a character suffering from memory loss and it’s a truly gripping story. Every morning Christine wakes up with no memory of anything past her childhood. What’s most fascinating about this is the reliance you have on what others tell you and how open to manipulation this leaves you.


In the Woods by Tana French

In the Woods (Dublin Murder Squad, #1)As dusk approaches a small Dublin suburb in the summer of 1984, mothers begin to call their children home. But on this warm evening, three children do not return from the dark and silent woods. When the police arrive, they find only one of the children gripping a tree trunk in terror, wearing blood-filled sneakers, and unable to recall a single detail of the previous hours.

Twenty years later, the found boy, Rob Ryan, is a detective on the Dublin Murder Squad and keeps his past a secret. But when a twelve-year-old girl is found murdered in the same woods, he and Detective Cassie Maddox—his partner and closest friend—find themselves investigating a case chillingly similar to the previous unsolved mystery. Now, with only snippets of long-buried memories to guide him, Ryan has the chance to uncover both the mystery of the case before him and that of his own shadowy past.

I absolutely love Tana French books. They aren’t particularly fast paced but they are fascinating in how deeply they go into the character’s minds. In this, the first Dublin Murder Squad book, the lead detective Rob Ryan has a hole in his memory. You might think that as it’s from his childhood he will have learned how to deal with it but it just eats away at him and he begins to unravel. Not so great for him, brilliant to read.


All Is Not Forgotten by Wendy Walker

All Is Not Forgotten

You can erase the memory. But you cannot erase the crime.

Jenny’s wounds have healed.
An experimental treatment has removed the memory of a horrific and degrading attack.
She is moving on with her life.

That was the plan. Except it’s not working out.
Something has gone. The light in the eyes. And something was left behind. A scar. On her lower back. Which she can’t stop touching.
And she’s getting worse.
Not to mention the fact that her father is obsessed with finding her attacker and her mother is in toxic denial.

It may be that the only way to uncover what’s wrong is to help Jenny recover her memory. But even if it can be done, pulling at the threads of her suppressed experience will unravel much more than the truth about her attack.

This is pretty much the opposite of the previous book in that rather than trying to remember a traumatic event a deliberate decision is made to forget one. Unfortunately though even though the memory is gone there is still something not right which raises the question can you ever really move on if you don’t deal with trauma?


Romance/Chick Lit

Not a very common trope in romance/chick lit although it was actually a romance read in my teens that started my obsession with memory loss (thanks Gran).

Before I Forget by Melissa Hill

Before I ForgetAbby’s memories are her most precious thing. Even though they’re sometimes painful, she can’t stop herself looking back, reliving the love of her life. Until a freak accident means that she could lose it all: every memory and experience she has ever had. Abby can’t believe it’s true. She feels fine. She is fine. How could she possibly forget all those moments that make her who she is? She’s determined to fight it. With the help of her friends and family, Abby makes a list of things she’s always wanted to do. She’s going to save her memory by having the most unforgettable year of her life…

How terrifying to face the prospect of losing your memories, the things that make you you. Don’t get me wrong there are definitely some things I wouldn’t mind forgetting but if it meant losing all the good, no thanks. What I love about this book is the determination to fight her condition and make some memories that can’t be forgotten (I’d probably just curl up in a corner and cry).


Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella

Remember Me?When twenty-eight-year-old Lexi Smart wakes up in a London hospital, she’s in for a big surprise. Her teeth are perfect. Her body is toned. Her handbag is Vuitton. Having survived a car accident—in a Mercedes no less—Lexi has lost a big chunk of her memory, three years to be exact, and she’s about to find out just how much things have changed.

Somehow Lexi went from a twenty-five-year-old working girl to a corporate big shot with a sleek new loft, a personal assistant, a carb-free diet, and a set of glamorous new friends. And who is this gorgeous husband—who also happens to be a multimillionaire? With her mind still stuck three years in reverse, Lexi greets this brave new world determined to be the person she…well, seems to be. That is, until an adorably disheveled architect drops the biggest bombshell of all.

Suddenly Lexi is scrambling to catch her balance. Her new life, it turns out, comes complete with secrets, schemes, and intrigue. How on earth did all this happen? Will she ever remember? And what will happen when she does?

With the same wicked humor and delicious charm that have won her millions of devoted fans, Sophie Kinsella, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Shopaholic & Baby, returns with an irresistible new novel and a fresh new heroine who finds herself in a life-changing and utterly hilarious predicament…

I love Sophie Kinsella books and while not my favorite of hers (Got Your Number) this is definitely up there. Think 13 Going on 30 with a main character who wakes up to discover a big chunk of her life missing and that while things seem perfect they really aren’t.


So that’s my top (umm) nine books about characters suffering from memory loss. Have you read any of these? Are you as fascinated by it as a plotline as I am or do you think it’s over done? Any books you’d recommend?

Feel free to leave comments below and links to your top ten’s.

This week my teaser comes from Invictus by Ryan Graudin which I received from NetGalley. I only started this yesterday so it’s still fairly early days but there is something instantly likeable about it plus, ya know, time travel. There really aren’t enough books with time travel and this one combines it with some thievery so it’s all good.


My Teaser

It was good that she remembered him, though it was exhausting to do so. No rest for the weary. Or the dying. Or the dead.

~ 23% Invictus by Ryan Graudin


BlurbInvictus

Time flies when you’re plundering history.

Farway Gaius McCarthy was born outside of time. The son of a time-traveling Recorder from 2354 AD and a gladiator living in Rome in 95 AD, Far’s birth defies the laws of nature. Exploring history himself is all he’s ever wanted, and after failing his final time-traveling exam, Far takes a position commanding a ship with a crew of his friends as part of a black market operation to steal valuables from the past.

But during a heist on the sinking Titanic, Far meets a mysterious girl who always seems to be one step ahead of him. Armed with knowledge that will bring Far’s very existence into question, she will lead Far and his team on a race through time to discover a frightening truth: History is not as steady as it seems.

Currently Reading

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

I haven’t been able to focus on anything much this week so I’m not really reading anything right now. I am however still listening to Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. This is the pick for this week’s real life book club which meets tomorrow so I’m no doubt going to be listening to it at every possible opportunity to get it finished in time. I haven’t been a fan of many of the book club picks so far but I am absolutely loving this one. It’s just so funny and clever and a little bit sad. I can’t wait to find out how it ends.


Recently Finished

I’ve been a little bit all over the place for the last week as I’m getting the bathroom and boiler in my one bed flat replaced. I’ve had to spend quite a bit of time tidying and cleaning and am currently living in box city and stressed out of my mind (I assume anything that can go wrong will go wrong). I have however managed to finish two books.

There's Someone Inside Your House

The first of these was YA horror There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins. Perkins is probably better known for her cute contemporary romances so I had my doubts over whether she could pull off horror but actually I think this was more or less a success. It is pretty heavy on contemporary romance (there’s a lot of kissing and …) and it’s not particularly scary, it’s much more gory, slasher than creepy or spooky but I did enjoy it. There’s plenty of diversity which is always great and while there are a few faults with the horror side of story the rest is good.

The Red RibbonThe second book finished, The Red Ribbon by Lucy Adlington, was also horrifying in a very different way. It’s the story of a teenage girl Ella and her time spent in Auschwitz. She manages to find work as a dressmaker but her future and her survival depends on whether she can continue to produce beautiful outfits for the guards. I have to admit that while I’ve heard many stories about Auschwitz this was completely new to me. I’d no idea they used the prisoners to make fancy clothes.

This was a really engaging read but I didn’t love it as much as I thought I would. I just didn’t quite connect to it. I do think it’s an important story that needs to be told but I didn’t feel it.


Reading Next

Due to my current stress levels I’m kind of tempted to ditch my TBR and just read whatever the heck I want. I do however want to try and get to Invictus and Cold Blood at some point.

Cold Blood (Detective Erika Foster, #5)Invictus

This week my teaser comes from The Red Ribbon by Lucy Adlington which I won in a Readers First giveaway. This is not the type of book I usually go for but I was tempted in by a very pretty cover and a really intriguing extract. As it’s set in a concentration camp I can’t say it’s an enjoyable read but it’s definitely engaging.


My Teaser

I became hypnotised by the sight of Stripeys tugging garments from a pile. Their hands moved like spiders over each item. Snip went the scissors if something was to be cut. Clink went coins poured into a tray. Money notes rustled. Gold twinkled. Slowly, reluctantly, clumsily, my mind was making the connection between the high quality clothes we altered in the workshop and these suitcases spilling out all over the Department Store floors.

~ Pg 100 The Red Ribbon by Lucy Adlington


BlurbPicture_20170908_182833202

Rose, Ella, Marta and Carla. In another life we might have all been friends together. But this was Birchwood.

As fourteen-year-old Ella begins her first day at work she steps into a world of silks, seams, scissors, pins, hems and trimmings. She is a dressmaker, but this is no ordinary sewing workshop. Hers are no ordinary clients. Ella has joined the seamstresses of Birkenau-Auschwitz.

Every dress she makes could be the difference between life and death. And this place is all about survival.

Ella seeks refuge from this reality, and from haunting memories, in her work and in the world of fashion and fabrics. She is faced with painful decisions about how far she is prepared to go to survive.

Is her love of clothes and creativity nothing more than collaboration wth her captors, or is it a means of staying alive?

Will she fight for herself alone, or will she trust the importance of an ever-deepening friendship with Rose?

One thing weaves through the colours of couture gowns and camp mud – a red ribbon, given to Ella as a symbol of hope.

Currently ReadingThere's Someone Inside Your House

I seem to have been reading nothing but YA sci fi for the last week (more below) so I decided to abandon my plan to pick up Invictus next and am currently reading YA horror There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins instead. I’m around halfway through and for the most part enjoying it. It’s not as creepy as I hoped, it’s more a slasher style horror (kind of like Scream), but there’s also quite a bit of romance in it which I’m really liking. Perkins does write great romances.

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

On audio, I started listening to Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. This is actually my next real life book club book but I didn’t have time to read it so I’m multi tasking and listening to it on the move. I haven’t gotten particularly far (probably only a couple of hours in) but I’m really loving it. The narrator is brilliant and I think I’ll be looking out for more of her books as well as the authors.

I’m still fighting my way through ARC mountain so The Fireman by Joe Hill is still on hold for the moment.


Recently Finished

The Dazzling Heights (The Thousandth Floor #2)

I’ve been making great progress on my TBR again this week with three more books finished (let’s not mention the books I added). The first of these was the book I was midway through last week, The Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee. This is the sequel to The Thousandth Floor, which finished with a bit of a cliffhanger, so it’s been one of my most anticipated reads and it didn’t disappoint. It’s a futuristic thriller about a group of teens who live in a thousand story high tower in Manhattan. As in the first book the story begins with a death and then flashes back to the events leading up to it to reveal what and why and most importantly who.

It is such a frustratingly addictive read. The author throws so many twists in that you are truly guessing up to the very end and even then expect another red herring. I may have screamed I was soo frustrated at one point. I did however really like how the characters and the relationships developed. One character in particular surprised me. My full review will be up later this week.

Nyxia (The Nyxia Triad, #1)The second book finished, Nyxia by Scott Reintgen, was also a YA sci fi, this time with 10 teens on a spaceship heading for another planet. They’ve been chosen for a very special and lucrative job but there’s a snag, only 8 of them will actually get the job and the money. They have the length of the journey to beat the others in a series of individual and team challenges.

As you can probably tell just from this the story is pretty similar to Ender’s Game or that bit in Divergent where Tris has to compete to stay in Dauntless. It is an enjoyable read but it’s not particularly original. You can read my full review here.

Bloody Scotland by [Anderson, Lin, Brookmyre, Chris, Brown, Gordon, Cleeves, Ann, Johnstone, Doug, MacBride, Stuart, McDermid, Val, Mina, Denise, Robertson, Craig, Sheridan, Sara, Thomson, E S, Welsh, Louise]

The final book finished was Bloody Scotland, a collection of twelve short stories by twelve Scottish crime authors. Each story is set in a different iconic Scottish building from Edinburgh Castle to Stanley Mills. There’s murder, revenge, Vikings and even a siege and most stories are exactly the right length for my daily commute 🙂

I should have a review up later this week but in the meantime I posted a Q&A with one of the authors, the brilliant Denise Mina, as part of the blog tour which you can find here. Despite some of her responses I’ve been assured no animals were harmed as part of the Q&A.


Reading Next

For some insane reason I’ve decided to get both a new bathroom and a new boiler installed next week (does it really matter if the boiler’s making weird noises and my shower is leaking) so I suspect my reading and possibly blogging time will be drastically reduced. I am however hoping to get my current reads finished and maybe make a start on one of the following ARCs (I’m determined to hit that 80% feedback ratio this month)

Cold Blood (Detective Erika Foster, #5)The BreakInvictus

This week my teaser comes from Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. I’m actually listening to this as an audio book rather than reading it so I’ve had to resort to the sample from Amazon for my teaser (I’m usually driving while listening so can’t take notes). I’m not very far in to the story but I am absolutely loving it. It’s a little odd, kinda funny but also a little bit sad and the narrator is brilliant.


My Teaser

I have always taken great pride in managing my life alone. I’m a sole survivor – I’m Eleanor Oliphant. I don’t need anyone else – there’s no big hole in my life, no missing part of my own particular puzzle. I am a self-contained entity.

~ Chapter 1, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman


BlurbEleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine

Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive – but not how to live

Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend.

Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything.

One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted – while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she’s avoided all her life.

Change can be good. Change can be bad. But surely any change is better than… fine?

Currently Reading

The Dazzling Heights (The Thousandth Floor #2)Yet again I seem to be in the position of juggling a few different books at the moment but I’m mostly reading The Dazzling Heights by Katharine McGee which I received from NetGalley. It’s the follow up to The Thousandth Floor which I read last year and really enjoyed. It’s classed as a YA sci fi as it’s set in New York in the year 2118 but really it’s all about social maneuvering and back stabbing with a bit of blackmail on the side. I’m not sure I particularly like any of the characters but it definitely makes for some interesting reading.

Bloody Scotland by [Anderson, Lin, Brookmyre, Chris, Brown, Gordon, Cleeves, Ann, Johnstone, Doug, MacBride, Stuart, McDermid, Val, Mina, Denise, Robertson, Craig, Sheridan, Sara, Thomson, E S, Welsh, Louise]I was asked last week to join the blog tour for Bloody Scotland, the book, so I’m also working my way through it at the moment. For those who don’t know Bloody Scotland is an annual crime writing festival held in Stirling. This year they’ve joined up with Historic Environment Scotland to produce a collection of short stories. Twelve of Scotland’s top crime writers (including Chris Brookmyre, Stuart MacBride, Val McDermid and Denise Mina) were asked to write a short story set in one of twelve iconic Scottish buildings. I’ve been dipping in and out of this and very much enjoying. There’s a good mix of stories and I can confirm that the story set in Edinburgh Castle is seriously disturbing.

I’ve had to prioritize ARCs over the last week so I’m afraid I still haven’t made any progress with The Fireman by Joe Hill. I’m not abandoning it but it does look like it’s on hold for a bit.


Recently Finished

The Border

I seem to have got my reading mojo back this week and finished off four books. The first of these was The Border by Steve Schafer, a story about four Mexican teens forced to try and make the crossing into America. Illegal immigration is definitely a hot topic at the moment so this book seems particularly relevant. It definitely makes you see things from a different perspective and I’m sure challenges a few people’s views. It’s a dangerous journey that a lot don’t make so there are more than a few harrowing moments but there’s also hope, a few laughs and even some romance. I didn’t expect to like this as much as I did. You can read my full review here.

Alex and ElizaNo one can say my reading tastes are not diverse as after a contemporary story about Mexican teens just trying to survive I moved on to historical romance Alex and Eliza by Melissa de la Cruz. It’s a fictional account of the romance between Alexander Hamilton and Elizabeth Schulyer and is quite a sweet and enjoyable read with a surprising number of similarities to Pride and Prejudice (but obvs not as good).

The third book finished this week was completely different yet again. I’d been anxiously watching the letter box and at long last my copy of Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart finally arrived from Readers First. Genuine FraudNeedless to say I couldn’t resist starting it more or less immediately and as it’s one of those books that you can’t put down I ended up finishing it the same day. I think I still prefer We Were Liars but this is a really great read. You can read my full review here.

The fourth and final book finished was the audio book of the final part of the Hunger Games series Mockingjay. It’s been fantastic listening to these books, there was so much I’d forgotten. It may however have been a mistake to listen to the end while driving (I may have gotten a little upset).


Reading Next

A ridiculous number of ARCs sitting on my NetGalley shelf seem to be getting released this month so I think my next reads are going to be the following:

Nyxia (The Nyxia Triad, #1)The BreakThere's Someone Inside Your HouseCold Blood (Detective Erika Foster, #5)
