Nineteen-year-old Elizabeth ‘Beta’ Camden is a survivor.

When the E’mani—those pale alien freaks—destroy Earth with a plague of madness and scoop up the remains, Beta is one of the ‘lucky’ ones. For years, she endures their tortures, experiments and games. Then one day, she manages to escape their ship with her life, and no memory of her time with them.

A promising introduction to a New Adult sci-fi series!

This book is something new to me. Not because of its genre but because of how the author, Colleen S. Myers, was able to deliver a very original concept. I haven't read a lot of alien books but usually in a book like this, aliens invade the earth, live in it, and rule over the humans. In this book, however, we see a different scenario. Aliens invade the earth, take random humans and bring them to their planet. Then their planet will be

Elizabeth has a very bad day waking up late for class. On her way to class she notices everyone acting really strangely. Things takes a turn for the worse she decides to hide out until she can find a safe place and figure out what's going on.

I loved that from the beginning we start off with action and wondering what's going on. The world building was great I enjoyed all the history of the different people of Solum. I enjoyed the characters especially Elizabeth. Elizabeth went through so much th

I received a copy of this book from Colleen Laughlin via NG in return for an honest review.

"You just proved to me that we may be different races, but smartass is universal."

This book had me in tears from laughter (the good kind!)

I love Colleen Myers' writing style!!
It's awesome, funny and engaging!
But I'm getting way ahead of myself, let's hop to the plot.

Elizabeth/ Betta wakes up one sunny day to realise that she is late for a test.

Must Remember: Dead or alive, they want her back. (Solum Series Book 1) was a fast pace, edgey read that had me hooked with in seconds. I didn't stop until the last page, and was left wanting more.

My first read by this author, I didn't know what to expect from this sci-fi, dystopian read. The opening was crazy, and it's what sets the stage to this dark read, cause just as much as our MC, we want answers, because to just leave the opening and jump ahead without knowing what happened, wow, my att

Not knowing where her loyalty's lie, they take her as a captive to their home. Little does she know she will find herself between two m

Must Remember is a fantastic first offering from new author Colleen S. Myers. The pacing and plot of the book kept me engaged. The main character Elizabeth aka Beta is big fun, all girl, and her character development is great. The world that Elizabeth finds herself on is artfully described by Myers, and the new cast of characters are given a depth that I haven’t found in most initial offerings by authors in this genre.
I read a large quantity of paranormal romance and erotica, so Must Remember’ s

Must Remember by Colleen Myers
Stars:4

I loved how this story began. It helps to understand where the character started. This story has ups and downs, and Elizabeth's story isn't done yet. She is loyal and knows what she wants! She is willing to stand by her beliefs, and do what is right. This story was excellent and I enjoy it.

I got this book through NetGalley and after reading it, I will definitely be buying it.

This book falls under the New Adult genre. I was pleasantly surprised as I was reading this. It's a bit of Sci-Fi and a bit of Fantasy mixed together. There's humor that you wouldn't expect either. I was laughing out loud which is extremely difficult. There is sarcasm, romance, magic, action, aliens, and more.

Disclaimer: I received this book free from the author, via the We heart YA Books! group in exchange for a honest review.

What to say of this book? Sadly, I didn't like it. While the concept seemed attractive and original enough, the MC's killed everything for me and didn't let me finish the story. I think that this is a general problem of first-person narration lately. In first person, everything, even descriptions of clothes and surroundings, is voice. Annoying comments/thoughts of the heroine i

Dramatic, right into the action at the start to the book. As Beta is trying to figure out what is going, you are right there with her. Some really great other world building going on as well as some really interesting and creative aliens as well. Yes, Beta is a fighter, even though she is scared almost out of her mind. This is some really great science fiction/fantasy story. Its also got some pretty healthy people connections too. I was right there with Beta when it came to being jerked around w ...more

Science fiction story with some hot passion makes this a great read. From the begining I was hooked into the story trying to figure out what was happening to this girl. It had a satisfactory ending with a hope for more. There were just a few tiny spots in the story that seemed a little too jumpy and for me needing just a little more detailed flow but it was one I could still stick with and follow through reading.

I loved this book. The alien world this author created was very complex and really engaging. Her character really brought you into the story. You could imagine being in an end of the world story with no problem. And of course your a survivor, and why they need to know? This one keeps you on your toes.
Great read!

I like Beta. She was well developed and likable. I was drawn in by the well written plot and liked how all the scenes were for a purpose of driving the story onward. I also like the writing style of Collen Myers. I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Must remember was a very interesting 4 star read and book one in the Solum series.

The way this book starts is really twisted and insane. I had no idea what was going on right along with Elizabeth. Elizabeth ends up waking up in a whole new world with two suns. She is beyond confused, she ends up meeting some men that take her back to their village.

Elizabeth would have memories here and there, she was also learning about her magic. We also get a love triangle when Finn and Marin are vying for her

One hell of a love triangle that continues throughout the series. 😒

I don't even know what the heck was going on at the beginning of the book. It's so confusing and you don't figure it out until way further down.

Elizabeth is a human taken by an evil alien race called Émani or imani depends what edition of the book you're reading. She escapes them with no memory of how she got to the planet. She stumbles unto another distant race similar to the Émani called Fros. She takes a liking to one of the
