Welcome, lovely readers and friends. The calendar again tells me it’s Tuesday which means one thing: a new edition of
Top Ten Tuesday is here. This time it’s Books I Read But Don’t Remember. Let’s do this.
That Artsy Reader Girl January 23: Books I Really Liked but Can’t Remember Anything/Much About – That Artsy Reader Girl
(This post does contain affiliate links, which means – at no extra cost to you, I may receive a small commission if you make a purchase through a link. Read the disclosure page for details.)
So, this is a fun (interesting??) topic. Why? Well, because I have a great many books I read, know I really liked (at the time) yet honestly cannot remember much about. Below I’ve collected books that I really remember zip-o about, and would like to re-read because of this. (Those that fall in this category are the books I read as a teen, so reading them again today might net a totally different result.) Then there are the books I cannot remember but 100% know I’d still adore (JENNY B. JONES!!) if I were to pick it up again today.
So, below are a list of 10 books that fall into one of the two categories I just talked about – or perhaps some variation of them. Here’s hoping 2018 is the year I maybe (yeah, see I’m already not feeling it happen) re-discover some of these books. Or at least decide whether or not I “need” to keep them when my annual unhaul-bookshelf-reorganization comes around. Without further ado…
Books I Read But Don’t Remember
1. Split Ends by Kristen Billerbeck | I’m 99% sure I read this one. I’m also 99% sure itmade me laugh the entire way. I’m 100% sure I’m super excited Kristen Billerbeck has a new novel (after a hiatus) releasing in 2018! Amazon | Goodreads
2. Roses Will Bloom Again by Lori Copeland | Pretty sure I totally stole this book from my aunt… and I still have it. Years later.
Oops! But it’s ok. I adored the story at the time, and still have the book, so… it’s all good. Amazon | Goodreads
3. Speak to Me Of Love by Robin Lee Hatcher | I really remember next to nothing about this one except that at the time, I’m pretty sure I thought it was about the most swoon-y romance I’d ever read. Amazon | Goodreads
4. Save the Date by Jenny B. Jones | Without question, I know this is a book that will remain on my shelf. I remember it making
my laugh so much and loving its fabulous romance and the characters who make it all work. Amazon | Goodreads
5. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine | I’m one of those people who actually likes the film adaptation starring Anne Hathaway (*realizes I need a re-watch*). Is it sillier than a Youtube video about cats? Yes. But what can I say, I love a good silly romantic-comedy now and again. While I remember the book being quite different, I don’t remember much else.

6. The Orphan Queen by Jodi Meadows | At the time I’m pretty sure I enjoyed this one. But trying to call it to mind leaves my mind blank. Part of this stems from the fact that I haven’t read much in this genre or this type of story. Or that’s my working theory. Amazon | Goodreads
8 & 9. The Princess and Sophie’s Heart by Lori Wick | Both of these books fall into the nostalgic reads category. In fact someday I would really like to sit down and re-read both – most especially The Princess considering I tend to think I loved that book, and I know I did enjoy Rachel Hauck’s ‘Royal’ series as well as Hallmark Channel’s royal romances. The PrincessAmazon | Goodreads ● Sophie’s Heart Amazon | Goodreads
10. It Had to Be You by Linda Windsor | I thought I really enjoyed this one (it has all the markings of a Rissi-approved-story:
contemporary, romance), but then I saw (at some point) I rated it a mere three stars on Goodreads. Perhaps a re-read is in order? Amazon | Goodreads

This brings another edition of the Top Ten bookish meme (Books I read But Don’t Remember), and a walk down memory lane, to its close. Thanks to those of you who stuck with said sappy memory lane.
Tell me about the books you read, liked, and yet cannot remember a thing about. I’d love to hear more about them and if you know why you cannot remember much or anything about them. Let me know down below – maybe I’ll remember a few more I read but cannot remember.
Thank you for visiting Finding Wonderland
