A New York Times bestseller!

Imagine a world where your destiny has already been decided…by your future self.

It’s Callie’s seventeenth birthday and, like everyone else, she’s eagerly awaiting her vision―a memory sent back in time to sculpt each citizen into the person they’re meant to be. A world-class swimmer. A renowned scientist.

Or in Callie’s case, a criminal.

In the same way, people will compare any story about a child entering a school of magic with Harry Potter. That's just the way things are. What matters is what the author writes out of this premise and if she can make a good story out of it. My question is... Is it a good read? (Pun intended)(less)

The only linking elements are dystopia, memory, and criminality. This is as spoiler-light as possible, but does contain more information than you'll find in the blurbs.

Callie's society is based around predetermination - your future memory defines your course in life, leading to some interesting chicken-and-egg type questions being posed by the main characters. When Callie receives her horrifying future memory, she's incarcerated for something she hasn't yet committed and doesn't understand could ever happen. Her main motivation is to prevent this from happening.

Kyla's memories are wiped in an attempt to reintegrate her into society. She has no connection to her past, only myriad mysteries, and a set of rules she must play by (enforced by a device that monitors and to some extent controls her emotions). Some people still treat her warily because she's Slated, but there are also people who want her to embrace her second chance and become a normal citizen. Kyla wants to uncover the mysteries of her past, but is also scared of standing out in a society where that would be fatal.

That's as far as the memory-criminality link goes, and it's pretty different. Kyla is given a second chance by the government, a new family to fit in with, has no memories or connection to her past, and is expected to live the life of a normal teen girl; Callie is incarcerated by the government, still with all of her past memories and connection to her family, and in possession of one taunting, life-changing future memory that she will do anything to prevent from coming true.

The dystopian settings are also very different. Slated takes place in a near-future Britain that has become dystopian after the failure of a coalition government. Forget Tomorrow takes place much farther in the future, with only a few recognisable elements; in this way, the setting is more sci-fi-lite. Aside from the society in Forget Tomorrow being built around the concept of future memory, there are also people with psychic abilities who are taken by the government, as it is believed that studying the brains of psychics will allow scientists to better understand how future memory works. (Callie's sister Jessa has a psychic talent.)

Furthermore, from what I remember, a lot of Slated takes place in school, where there's a boy Kyla likes, and a mean girl who hates Kyla and is into Kyla's love interest. The mean girl may be hot, but she's horrible, and the love interest would never like her. There are the common misunderstandings where Kyla is sure her LI is into this mean girl, even when he's shown no indication of that. In Forget Tomorrow, there aren't any of these YA cliches common to the high school setting; very little of the book takes place in school. Callie has a love interest, sure, but there's no love triangle or women for Callie to be jealous of.

In conclusion, the central concept of a link between memory and criminality is very different, and so are the main characters and settings. (Not getting further into the plots, as that is spoiler territory.)

Hope this helps!(less)

What I love about books like this, is the unique direction of the world. I love that this is a book which you can relate to, yet its set in a future where you obtain the memories of your future to determine the path you take for the rest of your life....

After seeing its beautiful cover and reading its totally intriguing premise, I can't help but wanting to read it.

Forget Tomorrow is set in a futuristic dystopian world with advanced technology that allows you to obtain future memories. These memories will guide people through life and will ensure them to have the career they envisioned. These memories are ‘set it stone’ and there is no varying from the path. Our protagonist, Callie dreads receiving her memory, she’s nervous she won’t become a famous chef. However not becoming a chef is the least of Callie’s worries because her future memory doesn’t involve ...more

This was an okay story, but I did struggle with it a bit.

This is the book of my heart. The reason this book means so much to me is because it is inspired by my relationship with my sister.

Let me explain. My sister, Lana, is twelve years younger than me, and I have always felt an extremely close, protective bond with her. I wanted to write a story about the deep, maternalistic love that a girl can have for her much younger sister -- and the lengths she would go to in order to protect her. I'd like to believe that I would be strong enough and brave eno

As with any book that tackles the tricky situation of time travel, I have to give credit simply for undertaking such a difficult task. It's very hard to not have lots of holes in these types of book, and while I try not to focus too hard on them (because really how can you not have holes in these types of stories?), this book had just a few too many “huh?” moments even for me.

I did like the general idea of this book and the moral issues that the author was trying to showcase were well done. The

This book is atrociously messy.

More than that, it's the perfect example of everything wong with YA these days, and how publishing companies don't give a damn about the content they're producing, and only about the people they can sucker into buying their books. Look, I'm not an idiot. Obviously any company's bottom line is going to be making money, and publishing houses aren't exactly foundations of quality assurance.

Forget Tomorrow follows Callie as she receives a memory from her future self (as to all seventeen years olds). This memory will help decide what path your future will take. But Callie's memory leads her in a direction she never in her wildest dreams would of thought of. She reconnects with Logan, the boy from 5 years ago who meant everything to her, can he again?

Unoriginal dystopian.

The saving grace for me was that this one was listed as a Science fiction thriller, and I wasn't sure I would like that since I don't usually like science fiction that much even though I do sometimes like thrillers. People kept talking about it being a unique dystopian so I thought I'd give it a try and it did sound interesting. I thought I was finally finding a new twist for the future.

This one was hard for me. I wanted it to be this great, original concept that would hook

I just finished this book and wish I could get back the month I spent reading it. It took me a lot longer to finish than my normal rate. I had a lot of schoolwork, but it was more than that. To me I felt like this book was so similar to so many other dystopians out there. I felt like I was reading the same type of thing over again.
The basic idea of this book seemed so awesome. It fell short for me on so many levels. I don't really care about the romance in books unless that's what it's supposed

This book was amazing. It is set in a virtualistic world where every boy and girl at the age of 17 get their future. They can several things and have a good life or have a bad future predicted to them. In this case Callie who just turned 17 is predicted a horrible future. After seeing her vision which is a memory sent back in time to mold everyone's future she is horrified to find out she will be a criminal. She is destined to kill someone close to her and she refuses to make that her future.

This one left me speechless at the end. I was so sure I had it figured out and then WHAMO. I was left shocked and off guard and had to read the ending like 15 times to make sure I got it all down.

As a Sci-fi fan, I thought this book was a complete disaster. Not sure why it's even called a sci-fi. Reads pure dystopian to me and not a good one. The holes in the plot were ridiculous. I don't mind trilogies but there has to be some kind of conclusion in each book and explain SOMETHING. I kept going, "HUH??" The whole memory thing made absolutely no sense in a scientific way but maybe the author didn't really care about that aspect. She was more interested in trying to make something romantic ...more

I don't even know where to start with this one. It's a mishmash of a whole bunch of other dystopian books and sci-fi movies (like Katniss running to the wilderness and Tris jumping off a building and June and the handmade ring thing). The characters are very flat and the romance is either non-existent or all-encompassing (but only for like two pages and then it's gone again). The plot is so full of holes, I felt like water trying to stay in a sieve. The whole thing about how memories arrive/wher ...more

The world in this book is pretty much ruled by the memory you receive from your future self when you turn 17. You find out what your profession will be, will you be famous? or will you be a criminal? When Callie turns 17, she goes through the procedure. Her future memory is catastrophic. She sees that she murders her own baby sister.

Thought this book was wholly average for its genre. Whole pages are dedicated to storylines that don't really add to the plot, and then will simply just gloss over key parts. Ultimately, a very generic read.

I've always found the concept of time travel, or in this case, knowing what the future will be, fascinating. I don't necessarily believe in fate myself, but this kind of theme usually results in very interesting works of fiction. Who knows, maybe in the future, this won't be fiction anymore? Anyway, Forget Tomorrow caught my attention for this reason and had me cooking up theories even before I started reading.

According to the book, your future self sends a vision to show you what you become. T

Forget Tomorrow is funny, swoony, and has a complicated futuristic world built around memories that are sent back from the person's future self.. On their 17th birthday, every boy and girl in this society receives a memory from their future selves that tells them who they'll be. Perhaps it'll reveal that they're meant to be an award-winning scientist, the next chairwoman for the Future Memory Agency, or a gold medalist in swimming. Callie, however, finds out that she's going to be a criminal. Sh ...more

The notion of a world where at age seventeen, one receives a memory straight from the future. Letting one know if they'll be successful or happy, or a criminal. Reminded me of the movie "Minority Report" with Tom Cruise, only in YA form. Going on the run, finding out why her future memory is happening has the exact same drive of plot like the movie and I loved it.

I liked Callie. She was utterly devoted to her family, though I wish I could have seen a bit more development with her sister to reall

This story was just okay for me. In the reading of Forget Tomorrow, I struggled with the story line, the main character, and the romance.

So in this story every 17 year old gets a memory from their future which is suppose to tell them what to do with their life. Most kids find the right career for them, they see themselves happy and fulfilled in their future. Once in a while a kid gets an atypical memory which shows them a crime, or something awful that ha

My initial thoughts:
Let me start of by saying that this book had a good cast of characters, an intriguing futuristic setting, and the writing was solid. Usually those three things would make a very interesting novel, but for some reason it didn't this time around. The story line pacing was irregular. It didn't flow well. The events felt rushed and under developed. I think if the characters would
