Memory of a Goldfish: January

Hey everyone!

Today I’m bringing a new blog series to you all that I thought would be fun for you all (embarrassing for me).

I’ve said time and time again that I have the literal memory of a goldfish.

I can remember broad concepts from books but when it comes down to the nitty gritty or (god forbid) the names in a certain book, I cannot for the life of me remember anything.

I thought it’d be fun to test my memory by writing out a couple book plots (from memory, duh) of books I read the month prior! Also be aware that I will rarely remember the names of any of the characters, so let’s just not make that a requirement.

This is going to be a challenge, but hopefully it’ll be entertaining for you all, which is why we’re all here.

** DISCLAIMER **
I may spoil these books for you because I don’t really remember what was in the plot summary… so beware.


Books Being Discussed:

  • 99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne
  • Beach Read by Emily Henry
  • Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

99 Percent Mine by Sally Thorne

This book follows a girl (don’t know her name) who used to be a photographer and now works in a bar. She is in this town because her grandma died and left her house to our main character (let’s call her Jamie) and her brother (Phil).

Jamie and Phil (might be twins I don’t remember) don’t have the same ideas when it comes to how they want the house restored, so that’s a big plot point throughout the novel.

Oh also, Phil has a best friend who Jamie has been literally obsessed with forever (his name is Frank? lol who knows).

Anyways, Frank is a contractor and is going to be working on the house for Phil and Jamie. This leads to a lot of romantic tension between Jamie and Frank.

Oh Jamie also has a heart condition, don’t remember if they mentioned what it was exactly, but her heart condition makes her insecure (don’t remember why).

This book had a lot of romance between Jamie and Frank and there were also other people in the book who were working on the house but literally don’t ask me about them because I couldn’t tell you a thing about them.


Beach Read by Emily Henry

This book was another romance novel, set on a beach somewhere.

The main characters are both writers and decide to trade genres for the summer and write a book that is out of their comfort zone.

Anna? and Jake? (I hope you know I’m making all of these names up for the sake of keeping this plot a little organized) start to have conversations through their kitchen? windows with signs (like in that Taylor Swift music video (also don’t ask me which song because, well you know…)).

Anna is living in her dad’s house that he owned in this beach town, but Anna didn’t know about the house because her dad was apparently cheating on her mom.

Anyways, there’s romance in this book between, of course, Anna and Jake.

Oh yeah, Anna and Jake also went to school together (somewhere) and they were in a class together where Jake was a know it all/show off and Anna has been competing with Jakes career ever since.


Tweet Cute by Emma Lord

This book is about these kids that go to school somewhere in New York I think. Lauren’s? mom runs a huge fast food chain whilst Paul’s? parents own a small deli in New York.

The whole story revolves around a Twitter war between the two restaurants because Lauren’s mom’s company steals a grilled cheese recipe from Paul’s family’s deli.

Lauren and Paul don’t know each other are running the Twitter accounts. Also there’s this app called something that all the kids in Lauren and Paul’s school are a part of. It basically hides the identity of whoever is using it and changes their name to an animal.

Anyways, Lauren and Paul are also talking to each other on this app but they don’t know they’re talking to each other because their identities are hidden. I forget what their animals were… maybe a wolf for one of them?

Lauren and Paul are ALSO both swimmers. I think Lauren is a swimmer swimmer whereas Paul dives.

Anyways, this is another romance. There’s a bunch of stuff that happens between the two especially once they find out that each of them are running the Twitter accounts.

Oh yeah, Lauren and her sister run this blog about dessert. She makes this cake that’s made up of a bunch of desserts put together but I don’t remember what it’s called. Maybe it was Monster Cake?


I’m going to stop there with my plot summaries because my brain is beginning to hurt from all the remembering it’s having to do.

I really hope you enjoyed this post and please let me know if you’d be interested in more!
