Currently Reading: Unremembered by Jessica Brody

Summary:

When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.

Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn’t on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can’t be found in a single database in the world.

Crippled by a world she doesn’t know, plagued by abilities she doesn’t understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can’t remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she’s running out of time to answer them.

Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?

From popular young adult author Jessica Brody comes a compelling and suspenseful new sci-fi series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.

My Thoughts:

I got this book several weeks ago in anticipation for attending the Girls Gone Sci-Fi tour. The summary sounded interesting,  but I just didn’t get a chance to read it before I went to the signing on Monday. Plus, I’ve been in a reading rut—as evidenced by my huge lack of posts. Monday night’s Girls Gone Sci-Fi stop fixed that for me. I’ll have a big post about that on Monday though. 

When I went to the signing I had one book from each author on Kindle and had to buy “book 2” from each, with the exception of Lauren Miller—she signed my ARC of Parallel. So….I bought Unforgotten, the sequel to Unremembered, without having read book 1. Jessica made the book sound super amazing when she talked about it, so I was immediately pumped to go home, grab my kindle, and dive in on Unremembered. In fact, when I got Unforgotten signed, she even made sure I had book 1 and I had to explain that it was on my kindle. Jessica was so sweet and also signed several Unremembered samplers for me to give to some of my students when I mentioned being a middle school librarian. 

Flash forward to getting home and grabbing my kindle—I can’t put this book down. Violet supposedly survived a plane crash, but she has no memories and isn’t on the plane’s manifest. Plus, she doesn’t come up on any government database when they run her fingerprints and DNA. I’m absolutely hooked and need to know what on earth is going on with this girl. On top of that–I already have book 2 waiting on me! I’m thankful that this tour gave me a reading excitement that I needed and I’m sincerely enjoying this book. 

Check back Monday when I post stories and pics from the Girls Gone Sci-Fi tour. This was my first author event to attend and I had a BLAST! I’ll definitely be attending more events at Lemuria in Jackson when they have authors that I enjoy—even if it is on a Monday night!

 

 

OH!! And the same day as the signing it was announced that Unremembered is being made into a movie! I’m picturing it already 🙂
