Forgotten by Cat Patrick

Summary:(from goodreads) 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.
Review: This is one of the books that i was drawn to because the premise was something unique that I haven't heard of before. It was an enjoyable read. The plot was well paced and I was immediately drawn into London's story. When I first started reading I was worried that it was going to be confusing. However, it was done in a way that was easy to follow and stay engaged. There wasn't a whole lot of action happening. This is a very character driven story. I liked London and Luke a lot. They were both well written and awesome characters. There was one thing that annoyed me about the plot line involving Luke but I was able to overlook it. The main thing I didn't like was the way things ended. I felt like the ending was a little bit rushed. I wish a few of the plot points had been wrapped up better. An extra few chapters would have gone a long way in giving this story a stringer ending. Overall, though this was a good book that I would definitely recommend.
