Remember to Forget is an emotional YA love story written by a teen

Remember to Forget is a highly emotional teen love story by Wattpad sensation Ashley Royer.
Remember to Forget by Wattpad sensation Ashley Royer.

Even though one of my favorite genres is YA Lit—and I am most definitely NOT in the YA age range—I suspect your age may have more to do with whether you enjoy Remember to Forget than some other YA books I’ve read. I don’t mean this in a bad way. I just remember in my adolescent to teen years I enjoyed highly-emotional stories and characters.  I loved a good, passionate declaration of someone’s feelings, and I sobbed every time the character did. It felt great—very cleansing.

Whether you’re young or old, if you need a good emotional catharsis, you’ll enjoy Remember to Forget. The book is mainly about feelings—depression, loss, grieving, anger, budding love, trust, you name it. The characters think about what they’re feeling, and talk to each other about their feelings, and act out their feelings…you get the picture. I think I needed a little more—or a little less, however you want to look at it. For example, I got a little bogged down in sad, angry, obnoxious Levi and his thoughts and feelings through about the first third of the book.

I also have to say that when I requested this book from NetGalley, I sort of misunderstood the description, which says  “And then, while at therapy, Levi meets Delilah, a girl who eerily reminds him of someone he lost.” I suppose I got all excited about the word “eerily,” because I love a good, eerie, sort of creepy story and thought there was going to be a big deal about Delilah being the double of his dead girlfriend.  (That even sounds a little bit like my creepy novel, Jordan’s Shadow.)  But it’s just a perfectly normal, “wow, she reminds me of Delia” sort of thing. It’s not a suspense or creepy supernatural we’re getting into.

There are a lot of positives about this book, though. It’s encouraging, uplifting, and yes, even sweet.  And if you can make it through the Obnoxious Levi portion of the book, you’ll be rewarded with a rare feel-good novel.

I received this book from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Summer’s Winter is a love story wrapped in a mystery, about a preacher's daughter named Jeanine and her obsession with movie star Jamie. At the age of ten, Jeanine believed that God Himself whispered to her in a dark movie theater and promised that the young star would someday be a part of her life. So began an eleven-year test of faith as Jeanine waited for her knight to arrive and rescue her from boring middle Georgia. And then, just as she’s graduating college and about to settle into the dreary nine-to-five life that stretches ahead of her, Jamie bursts into her life in an amazing way. He even seems to be falling for her, just as she’d dreamed. Trouble is, loving Jamie is nothing like she expected. Instead of carrying her away on a white charger, he’s hiding out in Georgia following the suspicious death of his former girlfriend. Jeanine longs to prove his innocence and get at the truth. Unless she can, Jamie’s dark secrets may shatter her faith—and her life.
