Hi friends! Back with a review today for the book In The Dark We Forget by Sandra SG Wong.

*Disclaimer : I received a copy of this ebook for free from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

So we meet our main character after she wakes up on the side of the road with no clue where, or who she is. The story progresses, and as she finds more out about herself and her story, the puzzle pieces of how she got there start to fall into place.

I liked this book because of the relationships formed. Having to come to terms with not knowing your past history, I feel like Cleo really leans into repairing broken relationships and even how she talks to people. She acknowledges how she treated others, and seems to make a conscious effort to change. I also like how the story was paced. There were enough engaging elements to keep the book moving along.

However, there were some annoying things throughout that I could not get past. There are parts where she says things to herself…except nope, she spoke out loud instead. I think it was meant to be endearing, but it made me start to dislike Cleo. Secondly, it’s so far fetched to me how calm she was as the story progresses. Like, you wake up not knowing anything about your life, yet you just calmly move from day to day accepting what people tell you? That seemed completely unbelievable to me and it made me think the whole time like…how are you not just freaking out and panicking. Maybe it’s my anxiety speaking but I questioned that through the whole book.

There are some more things, but I don’t want to get into them because they are spoiler-y. For those though, In The Dark We Forget gets 3 stars from me. Although remember, if this book sounds intriguing to you, I will always recommend you read it. Reading is so subjective, and everyone likes different things.
