Is it still worth reading if you don’t remember it?

Hi Virtually Readers! The other day I was writing a review that I’d started two weeks after finishing the book, then left half finished. By the time I’d finished it, it had been more than a month and I had forgotten one of the main character’s names, as well as a lot of the minor plot points.

Mini thoughts on the books I’m reading at the moment

Hi Virtually readers! As you may have noticed, I’ve been incredibly busy since starting university and I’m learning how to squeeze blogging around the edges of everything I’m doing. One thing that involves is preparing posts ahead of time, and another part (which I’m doing today) is writing fast, fun posts. So, seeing as I’m currently in the middle of several books, here’s some of my thoughts on them! (covers link to goodreads bc who has the time to make blurbs? NOT ME ANYWAY)
