Book Review - Remember Me Forever by Sara Wolf

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Jack has left Isis and she's forced to move on to the next phase of her life on her own. Jack and Isis have a complicated history, but they were close and now he has disappeared. Isis has a place at Ohio State University, however her worst nightmare becomes reality while she's there. When the biggest hurt from her past shows up she isn't happy she signed up any longer. Isis is going to stand up for herself though. When everything that happened to her in the previous years comes together all of a sudden she has to be brave, but she doesn't have to do this alone. Will she be okay and what about Jack, will he be part of her life once he'll be able to overcome the obstacles that are still in his way due to his past or will she lose him for good?

Remember Me Forever is another great story about Isis and Jack. They have been through a lot together and their connection is strong. However, Jack has made choices that have taken him away from Isis. He's always suffering and desperately keeps trying to do the right thing for everyone but himself. I often felt sad because of the life he's chosen and kept hoping he'd find happiness instead. Isis is still bold and funny. I absolutely loved her warm and witty personality and enjoyed reading about her again very much. She's a fantastic original main character. I couldn't wait to find out how things would end between Isis and Jack and couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Sara Wolf kept me captivated from beginning to end.

Sara Wolf has written a fantastic trilogy about two special people. Jack and Isis both have their flaws, they aren't perfect, but they also have a lot in common. They feel intensely, they make rash decisions and they fight for what they believe in. That makes them fascinating to read about. They truly deserved to have their story spread over three different books and fortunately Sara Wolf has given them a beautiful fitting ending. What I love the most about her writing is the clever dialogue, it's always surprising and the fierceness of it kept blowing me away. I highly recommend the Lovely Vicious books, it's a series I will remember for a long time.

Advice

Remember Me Forever is part of a series and shouldn't be read as a standalone. I'd advise you to start with Love Me Never before moving on to Forget Me Always. Once you pick up the first one you will probably want to read these books in one sitting.

  4. I like stories where the main characters are flawed. It's more realistic.
