Forgotten by Cat Patrick

Forgotten

Each night at precisely 4:33 am, while sixteen-year-old London Lane is asleep, her memory of that day is erased. In the morning, all she can "remember" are events from her future. London is used to relying on reminder notes and a trusted friend to get through the day, but things get complicated when a new boy at school enters the picture. Luke Henry is not someone you'd easily forget, yet try as she might, London can't find him in her memories of things to come.

When London starts experiencing disturbing flashbacks, or flash-forwards, as the case may be, she realizes it's time to learn about the past she keeps forgetting-before it destroys her future.

**My Review**
 
What would life be like if you could not remember your past....only your future? London lives with this every day. London Lane is just 16 years old, and each night she forgets the day, and only remembers things from her future.
 
I couldn't imagine having to read about my day to day life each day when I woke up. To have to re-learn each day what has been going on.
 
I really enjoyed Forgotten. It was well written, and (if you listened to the audio) very well spoken. It kept me wanting more, and I was not ready for the book to end. I wanted to know what was going to happen after....well, you'll just have to read the book.
 
There are turns in the book that you wouldn't expect, and you get to feel London's emotions with her. If you have not read this book before, you should add it to your TBR.
 
I checked this audiobook out for a neighboring county library. I listened to it in my car. There were many times I would be sitting in my car in my driveway just to finish the chapter or what not. I then would want it in print or ecopy so I could read it when I would get home. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a print copy at the library and even checked Overdrive. No luck though. Had to spend lots of time in the car!
