      I went into this with a quest To discover if after several years this was still my favourite book.I think it is I think it is my favourite book.You ll be seeing quite a few videos from me about this book in the next few weeks to hear of my thoughts, but here are a few This is the book that I think about the most often I wouldn t say it haunts me, but it makes me think about myself and who I am and how I want to portray myself the fact that the character goes through 3 romantic prospects is bril [...]

      there may be spoilers , but mild and gentle ones, not it was earth all along spoilers this is a book i was reading for school, not because i am a big fan of realistic teen fiction if you are a teen girl wondering if you should read this book, this is probably not going to be the review for you in fact, you should stay away from most of my reviews because i am careless and i don t want to be responsible for shattering any beautiful innocence about life or anything stay gold and all thate brain is [...]

    3. da AL on said:

      It was a fun enough book, read well enough I got it because I hoped it would measure up to author Zevin s later novel for adults, Young Jane Young, which shows how far Zevin s writing has improved.

      This is the kind of book that reminds me why I am not a middle school or high school librarian I need to be able to choose two and a half stars There were things I really liked about this book, and other things I really did not like.The idea of a teenager who has, basically, lost 4 years of her life is compelling and thought provoking That would be so strange Interesting to think about, and I liked that part of the story I wanted to find out what happened to Naomi But the I read, the less I lik [...]

    5. Rebecca McNutt on said:

      Certainly an intriguing concept, sort of like those day glo coloured afterschool early 2000 s TV films that used to be on when I was a kid, but I think this book could have been so much original and deep than it turned out to be Don t get me wrong, I did enjoy it, but not as much as I d been hoping.

      Audio narrated by Caitlin Greer 6h 40m A different plot for a YA novel that opens with the main character, Naomi, in the back of an ambulance with a boy that claims he s her boyfriend Of course, my mind filled with a repertoire of suspense thrillers immediately went to OMG, he tried to kill her , but no, Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac is not that kind of book Honestly, I wish it had been a little like that Instead it was full of teen angst, choosing between three different guys, and trying to re [...]

      FINAL RATING 1.5 STARSWhere to begin First off, I suppose I should say that I wanted to read this book the moment I laid eyes on it in the bookstore I bought it that same day and squealed as I took it home Yes, I was that eager to read it.Before I could do that, I had to get through City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels, Clockwork Angel, Paranormalcy, and Supernaturally Each of these books was exquisite and original, so maybe that s why this book sucked so much.Oh, yes, and this review will conta [...]

      Naomi Porter regains consciousness as she is being put into an ambulence She hears an unfamiliar voice claiming to be her boyfriend and opens her eyes to see him sitting beside her on the way to the hospital The pain in her head is so severe that she doesn t worry about the fact that she has no idea who the guy is holding her hand and telling her everything is going to be okay.In the hospital, Naomi learns that she fell down the steps of her high school and hit her head hard enough to cause brai [...]

    9. Janina on said:

      This book really could have been good if I hadn t disliked the main character and her love interest so much.Towards the end, it got a little bit better, but up until then, I was mostly feeling annoyed by Naomi and her behaviour Especially since she decided to treat the characters I really liked, namly her dad and Will, rather badly And didn t even care enough to apologize to them later when she realized she had been mean.

    10. Tatiana on said:

      Once in a while you come across a book that grabs your attention by its profound understanding of human nature and skillful characterization Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac is one of these books This book is not your standard YA novel with first love and boys and kissing When I opened the book, I expected to get something like an YA version of Meg Cabot s Remember Me but ended up with a story of a girl who loses and then finds a piece of herself Naomi forgets 4 years of her life and is forced in a [...]

      If you happen to be one of those teens who just wants to forget what has happened the last few years, here is what you do throw yourself down a flight of stairs Crazy I know but this is a sweet book Here is one of my favorite passages page 259 It happens, baby Dad nodded and patted me on the hand and then he read my mind You forget all of it anyway First, you forget everything you learned the dates of the Hay Herran Treaty and Pythagorean Theorem You especially forget everything you didn t reall [...]

    12. Angela on said:

      I adored this novel Mainly due to the author s beautiful writing style and fluid storytelling If I were to make one complaint it would be that I wish one of the characters, whose name I shall not state due to my fear of spoilers, had of a resolution I fell in love with them and my mind is reeling, wondering what will become of them and if they move on, find happiness, and heal This is one novel I am dying to read a companion to.

    13. Heather on said:

      It is such a rare treat to read such remarkable and undeniably realistic characters Zevin weaves the tale of Naomi s self discovery with extraordinary skill and creates characters that are so alive, I feel like I know them and experienced the events of this story right along with them as opposed to merely reading about them.In one misstep, Naomi lost years worth of memories After hitting her head on the steps after school, she wakes up in an ambulance, aware of the pain than what actually happe [...]

    14. oliviasbooks on said:

      Such an interesting concept and yet I stopped reading at page 90 The trail of unfinished books I ve left behind me since the beginning of this year starts to become alarmingly long Still I refuse to read on when processing the scenes becomes an effort instead of fun Although I can understand the heroine s motivations forming a stance, an opinion on something, coming to terms with personal calamities, growing really fond of someone takes time, and therefore it is natural that somebody who has to [...]

    15. Annalisa on said:

      When you hear people talk about voice, this is what they are talking about The voice in this book is fabulous strong, funny, and intelligent I loved it, and I loved that Zevin tells us absolutely nothing She shows it to us She never tells us whether to like Naomi or always what she s thinking or what to expect her to do or want or become I can see how that could be frustrating for girls who are used to books that tell them what to think, but I thought it was refreshing and made the book all that [...]

    16. Lalitha on said:

      I didn t find this book as appealing as her earlier book, Elsewhere The protagonist, Naomi Porter, was barely likeable, and came off as extremely selfish, cranky, and just generally bitchy for no apparent reason I m not even sure why this book is called Memoirs since we get very little insight into her amnesia she loses her memory and has to deal with the resulting high school drama, or lack of I also disliked how there was very little resolution w the mother daughter issue it s almost as though [...]

    17. AH on said:

      My initial reaction to this book was a look of disbelief at the title I mean, how could an amnesiac have memoirs I opened the book and started reading and I was captivated What an interesting concept for a book.Naomi Porter loses a coin toss and must return to school to pickup a camera There, she falls down the stairs and hits her head When she regains consciousness, she can t remember anything that happened in the past 4 years Important things, like her parents are divorced, her father is engag [...]

    18. Ciara on said:

      1.3 5 I actually think, personally, that Gabrielle Zevin might have been just bored the actual moment she thought of writing this book It seemed to me as if she was just writing whatever hits her mind, not really thinking of any concrete storyline or plot or anything It bothered me.To think that she kept the story revolve around Naomi s quest for love or something like that for almost 10 chapters out of twelve WHAT THE HELL And then right in the last remaining chapters she ll fit the part where [...]

      Rounding up to 4 StarsEverything about this book was appealing characters, story, hint of mystery, language.except for the ending It was one of those where you flip the page and your mouth gapes open with confusion That s it Huh The story seemed to just stop Admittedly, I d prefer my endings tied up with a silky red ribbon I can guess, of course, but ugh My Kindle is most definitely to blame, as well I was at 89% when I suddenly hit the acknowledgement pages I ve noticed this happens when the au [...]

      2.5 5 starsMeh This wasn t anything special Although I liked it enough to read it to pass time between classes I felt like I was waiting for something to take place the entire time There was barely any conflict, the whole story was missing something for me But I loved the music playlists its why I decided to give a half star bumping it to 2.5

    21. Jasmine Darcy on said:

      To be honest,this book didn t thrill me at all.The writing was dull and lifeless I m amazed I didn t DNF it MOATA follows the story of a teenage girl who,like the title suggests,loses her memory by tripping down the school stairs after retrieving her camera from the school building.It starts with her waking up in hospital and having to face new,or maybe not so new, people and situations which she has vague,indistinct and futile memories of.This book deals with amnesia in a unique way despite bei [...]

    22. Rachel Finney on said:

      I flew through this book I was so close to giving it five stars, but the ending wasn t as satisfying as I hoped it would be I wanted MORE I love Will so much him and his precious, devoted little soul At times the main character frustrated me, but then I remembered she was sixteen and it made all of the sense I highly recommend this book

    23. Lauren Johnson on said:

      4 5 I really enjoyed this book I enjoyed seeing through the main character s eyes as we went through her life with her without her memories I also enjoyed that this story was extremely realistic when it came to teenage relationships No insta love or soul mate stuff, just honest to goodness real first love stuff Highly recommend in the plot intrigues your interest.

    24. Angela Hart on said:

      My rating is 3.5 or 3.75 stars, but I rounded up The premise and character background was intriguing Our main character, Naomi, lost four years of her life and now needs to rediscover who she is and why.Be Sure To Check Out My BookTube Review youtube watch v L72C1

    25. Natalie on said:

      First of all, if you bought this book thinking it s a good, teen romance, I would say stop right there Also, I ve marked this at having spoilers, but it has big spoilers I even talk a bit about the end, so if you haven t read this book yet, I would suggest you halt Unless of course, you want to know about it before deciding to read it If that s the case, carry on This novel is not a romance In fact, I m I ve only finished the book minutes ago and I m feeling let down, irritated and puzzled The l [...]

    26. Nomes on said:

      I was surprised I enjoyed this as much as I did Surprised because despite loving the premise ofI kinda got bored in it.I think to enjoy a head trauma amnesiac book, it s best just to go along for the ride and read the story not getting all caught up in the logistics of the scenario, yeah About the book Naomi was a popular girl, with a jock boyfriend and a goofy best friend, Will When she loses four years worth of memories, she doesn t really get who she turned out to be Doesn t find anything app [...]

      I wasn t expecting this book to be funny, but much of it was quite amusing.I ve always been interested in amnesia To me, we are our memories If we lose our memories are we the same person Do we like and dislike the same things people, have the same beliefs It s one reason I was so interested in reading this book, and I think the story did a good job of addressing this issue.This book had been languishing on my to read shelf so I m very grateful that the YA Book Club here at chose it for their Ju [...]

      It all started with a coin toss Naomi picked heads and now she can t remember the past four years of her life Well there was a little bit to the accident than the coin toss, there is the part about falling down the stairs head first, but the coin toss was the ultimate downfall.She doesn t remember her best friend Will, she doesn t remember her boyfriend Ace, she doesn t remember her parents divorce, but she does remember James the boy who found her after the accident.Everyone tries to tell Naom [...]

    30. Jessica on said:

      This was a refreshing read I found it to be humorous at times, but at other times it was very sad serious I really enjoyed how the book was separated into three parts which each told a piece of Naomi s story of memory loss and then regaining it She was a very dynamic character and I enjoyed seeing her mature and change through the many things that happened to her and around her.I found her character, as we know it, from before her head injury to have been awful I don t think I would have liked h [...]
