Top 5 Wednesday: Forgettable Books

Welcome to another top 5 Wednesday post. Goodreads group

I had to go back through my Goodreads to see what books I had literally forgotten reading and it turns out I can answer this one easily. Too easily. The way I've started 2018 I feel like I'd probably be able to post about this next year as well.

Famous Last Words by Katie Alender
I read this in the last couple of days of 2017 so I haven't forgotten about this (yet) but I know I probably will.
A teenage girl tries to work out who a Hollywood serial killer is with a little ghostly help. I gave it 3 stars which generally means I liked it enough but had no strong feelings of either persuasion. I don't personally think any of the characters were very memorable and I've already forgotten everyone's names.

Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland
I literally haven't got a clue. I gave this a 3 stars so I clearly enjoyed it to a certain extent but it seems to have left my mind the second I picked up my next read. Even reading the goodreads bio (title is linked) didn't bring back any memories so I don't want to paraphrase what it says, if you're interested I'd just check out the link.
I will say that when you look at the reviews on there I definitely seem to be in the minority, everybody seems to love this.

Just Friends by Monica Murphy
I really need to start reviewing on Goodreads if only so I'm not clueless when asked about books I've actually read. It sounds like there's a love triangle with the hot bad boy and the best boy friend so if you hate that trope then I'd steer clear.

My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga
So it turns out I gave this 4 stars on Goodreads but I cannot for the life of me remember anything about it. Even reading the synopsis didn't trigger any memories. This is apparently (I'm obviously paraphrasing) about a couple of teenagers who make some sort of suicide pact and the journey the pair go on as their chosen date nears.

99 Days by Katie Cotugno
This book would be completely forgettable for me if it hadn't been for the fact that it was my lowest rated book of last year. I feel like I was on course for giving this a 2.5 (which I'd have rounded up to a 3) but then the main character does something that literally made me give up. I know it's only a book but she might be the most annoying female main character I've read and I ended up giving this 1 star.

What are some books you always forget you've read? Have you read any of these and loved them?
