Forgotten by Cat Patrick

This book came to me with a big rave review attached to it...so maybe I was expecting too much?

Chapter 2 hit me in the face with "my bright auburn locks'' and only 3 paragraphs later ''her head of shiny black hair''!

Even though the story is (or could be) interesting, I'm feeling so much animosity towards the lazy language usage that I doubt I will finish it. And as for the love interest - pah! I quote - 'time stops' - 'my armour begins to crumble' - 'sparkling pale cornflower blue eyes' - 'he belongs in either Hollywood or heaven'! Spare me and pass the bucket quick!

It's a memory story - the twist being that London (great name!) dreams about the future and forgets the past every night. So she has memories of what will happen to her family and friends in the future, but has to write herself a list each night of exactly who those people might be!!

It's due out in June - read it and let me know if it gets any better.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
