Forget Me Not
“I’ve never been to a ball or followed the yellow brick road, and I sure as hell never imagined myself living in a world of fairytale characters. Most of which want me dead. So when they come, because they will, I need to be ready.”
“And you think you could kill someone?”
“I know I could.”
When the academy in Nottingham burns down, sending in a new slew of fairytale classmates, Norah Hart comes face to face with new challenges, enemies and friendships. But the longer she is in this world, the more she realizes there is no getting out, leaving her with only one option–be prepared.
Book 2 in the Forgotten Fairytales series
Forget Me Not by Angela Parkhurst
WOW! Did this book take me on a roller coaster of emotions or what! Forget Me Not by Angela Parkhurst is absolutely amazing and just continues to build on the amazing world she’s created in the first book, Forgotten Fairytales.
Norah is still reeling from the fall out over the events from the first book. Her sister still hates her, more now than ever. She has ptsd from dealing with Finn, who escaped any form of punishment for trying to kill her last year. To top all of that off, Cinderella’s on trial but likely to be acquitted for drugging Prince Charming and trying to kill her.
If that wasn’t bad enough, Norah now has to deal with failing classes and secrets that creep in between herself and Wolf, while a sexy newcomer arrives crushing on her. What I especially love about Forget Me Not is that, while there are many times it reminds you of just how much a teenager Norah is, Parkhurst never falls into that typical YA one love to rule them all trope, and that is amazing. Yes, Norah is in love with Wolf, but she also learns that she needs to love herself and put herself first.
Definitely want to say more about this (OMG THAT ENDING WHAAAAAAAAAAAT) but it’ll wait until the spoiler vlog this weekend!
This is actually a really great YA series that I wish would get more traction and popularity because the characters are so fantastic and the empowerment in them is great, especially in Forget Me Not by Angela Parkhurst.
