Forget Me Not (Mnevermind #2)
Forget Me Not - Jordan Castillo Price

OMG THIS BOOK IS AMAZING AND I LOVE EVERYTHING IT CHOOSES TO BE!

 

I loved so much that we got a book from Elijah's POV. Now, I'll say upfront I'm not autistic, so I can't say if this is an accurate portrayal of what it's like to be autistic. JCP says in the afterword that she did contact people who have autism and did her research before writing this, and from everything else I've read by her, she takes her craft seriously. So I trust her to make this as close to possible as an accurate portrayal as she can get - bearing in mind that autism is different for everyone who has it. But I'll leave it up to readers who are autistic to make that determination.

 

What I did appreciate about this was that it gave Elijah a voice. It let us into his thought processes and his emotional processes, both of which were often hard to discern in the first book through Daniel's POV. We see how he processes information and how he filters everything that comes his way throughout the day. We also get to learn more about his background and his problems at work. He's a fully developed character, not a list of behavioral traits.

 

It was also fascinating to watch him and Daniel figure out how to communicate with each other, and to see Elijah so excited to figure out he's gay and not being worried or afraid to pursue that part of himself. Not that it's all easy. He does have challenges from outside to deal with, and those parts were rather tense reading about.

 

This book was a treat and I'm already plowing through the last book in the trilogy.

5 books. Not that bad. I was hoping for more but you can't always get what you want. I'm still very proud. Also 4 of these books were ARC's I got through NetGalley, since I wanna catch up on my books there, I'm happy that I got quite a few off the list.

Forget Me Always!!!
Forget Me Always - Sara Wolf

First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.

 

There won't be a summary or me talking too much about what happens in this book, because it's the second book and I will keep things pretty general.

 

Man, this book started really promising. Isis was still 99,9% annoying and 0,1% really funny and sassy. But I just overlooked things, like I'm used to in these books, I wouldn't get through these books if I wouldn't ignore lots of things that are happening.

 

In the beginning I really enjoyed the moments that Isis and Sophia had. I was so happy about the friendship that these two were building. (Just like in the first book when I was more interested in the friendship between Isis and Kayla.). But Sophia was really hard to handle sometimes. To be honest the same can be said about Isis. So why would I even think that this would end up being something good.

 

I just don't like the charactes in the book. I know, I know. Mostly all of them have been through some bad things and are still fighting their demons. So I get the bitterness and what not. But, I just don't care enough about these characters and end up being more frustrated and annoyed instead of getting touchy feely when they have an actual nice moment.

 

I also couldn't care less about Jack and Isis as a couple. There is just something about these two that really irks me. Again, yes, they have their nice moment but ugh, no.

 

That ending had me shocked, though. Mostly because I thought it would happen sooner but it never did, so I didn't think the author was going to go there. But then she did. Just for that I will add a spoiler warning just in case, someone makes sense if my cryptic nonsense.

 

After reading all of this, you may think, why the heck is she still reading this stuff, even though she's so not into it. Well, well, children, when I start a series, I have a really hard time not finishing it. So, as soon as I see the third book around, I will grab that one, too. Cause even though, I may hate myself for it, I will finish what I started. Man, if I would apply that logic to things in my life, I would have 99 less problems in my life.

 

Note to myself: I need to check out other books by the author, cause I really like her writing, it's just the story that doesn't work for me.

Things are tough when the story isn't really working for you and all of the sudden you remember that you hate 99,9% of all the characters. But I've come this far, I can finish it. Cause the writing just kinda sucks you in.
