This novel brought up some very interesting ethical questions. The first being, if you could forget any memory or part of your life, would you? Another being, if someone asks you to take away every bad memory, should you? I thoroughly…

The closest to painting with and walking through written words; this author is powerfully evocative. Lush prose and a compelling story line, beautifully written. The twisted time sequence truly expressed what it is like to inhabit ones…

I'm not one for love stories but damn this one was good - I LOVE the whole "forgetting you're in love" trope. It's lush and well written and has satisfying twists and turns and an intriguing aura of mystery

This book is perfect for someone looking for magical realism cooked up in a slowly simmering gothic pot. Storytelling at it’s finest.

It took a bit to get into the mythos here about why books are bad and what they actually represent in this world, but once you figure out what the deal is with Emmett, it makes sense, and the story picks up. I don't know if it was that…

RATING: 1 STAR DNF @ 30% (Review Not on Blog) This novel was a bit painful to read and not based on subject matter but because of the writing. I found that my mind either wandered and I could not remember what I last read, or I found…

Imagine a world where our secrets and memories, good and bad, are taken from us and bound into books. We can choose to be bound and forget. For love, or for money, or just for the sake of forgetting our pain. But there's always a…

I thoroughly enjoyed this. It is a mix between historical fiction and folklore and was fresh and well written. I especially loved the subtle sense of dread throughout the novel which made you feel as if something bad was going to happen…
