So basically this book destroyed me and then put me back together but then destroyed me all over again. Very confusing. Also, the ending was very unsatisfying. I’m finding that a lot in ya books these days. It’s honestly just really annoying.

So many things are thrown at you time and time again!!!!!! I hated Shelby’s mom and then I thought she was okay and then I was really upset with her but I didn’t hate her. I feel like all of these characters just had so many of their own ulte

Until We Meet Again was one of my most anticipated books the year it came out, and when I read it, it was what I expected and more. I'm not usually a fan of romance mysteries, but seeing as Renee Collins wrote this book, I immediately jumped at the opportunity to read and review it. I really loved her previous novel, and maybe I expected too much from this one. Needless to say, I was kind of disappointed.

Remember Me Always was a really quick read, as are most romance mystery novels. The mystery

I liked the beginning of the book a lot, but then I began losing interest as I figured out where the story was heading and then towards the end, I was surprised by the decisions the main character made.

I felt that the novel was a bit of a cautionary tale for very young YA readers who dream of falling in love with a mysterious boy but with an unexpected ending showing personal growth.

I thought that this book was really good. If you want to read a book about mystery and romance, this is a good book. Remember me always has a very good plot to it, and has very many twists and turns.

I fell in love with Renee's writing in Until We Meet Again, which turned out to be one of my favorite romance novels. So when I saw Remember Me Always I just knew I had to read it, especially after getting pulled in by that blurb.

The story starts off with Shelby returning home after receiving some sort of procedure that wiped away her memory of a terrible accident, along with other things that mattered to her. This is the second time I've read a book surrounding the erasure of bad memories and w

this was one of the most over written, pretentious, predictable books ive ever read. however, it was extremely entertaining and i couldn't put it down so?? i think this was SUPPOSED to be a mystery but i predicted the plot twists while i was 15% of the way through... i am interested in reading something else by this author but not in the near future

I love the premise of this story. A girl who can't remember a relationship with a boy who claims he loves her, and his quest to prove that love. I cannot begin to tell you how much I ship Shelby and Auden. I feel like I fell in love along with Shelby. I do have a bone to pick with Renee for dragging me through the heartache and twists and turns of the last few chapters. I thought I was going to lose my mind in the best way. A beautiful story through and through.

Remember Me Always by Renee Collins is an intriguing young adult novel with an interesting premise and a multi-layered storyline.

Over the summer, Shelby Decatur undergoes a somewhat extreme treatment to erase her memories of a car accident that are causing her severe anxiety, panic attacks and PTSD. Now home, her excitement at beginning her senior year of high school is tempered by an underlying, low-level sense that something is not quite right. Having recently experienced a tantalizing fragmen

Sometimes even when you don't like any of the characters in a book...the book can still end up being fantastic. Not this book though. Nope. Not one bit. It was a bit boring, dragged...a lot, and by the end? I didn't care what the big "Memory" was. I just wanted it to be over. Sorry If That's harsh. I hate writing a bad review for a book, I really do. 😐

Very few books get five stars from me, but damn this one was close. So beautifully written. Hiding away from past mistakes doesn't mean we won't make the same ones again. Second book I've read this winter break about memory and all I can say is... Its complicated.

When I first laid eyes on the synopsis of this book, I fell head over heels for this story. I know you're never supposed to judge a book by the synopsis or cover, but I couldn't help but notice both! The synopsis pulled me in with immediate interest. The cover was even more gorgeous in person than I thought!

But now its time to get into the actual story. This book centers on a girl named Shelby who was in a terrible car a

"Remember Me Always" is a really fascinating and intriguing YA fiction that touches sci-fi and romance. Shelby is getting ready to start her senior year but finds herself recovering from some experimental treatments over the summer which reminded her memories of a terrible accident that had given her PTSD and panic attacks. Although everyone around her knows what happened, Shelby can't remember a thing.

At a repeat treatment, something goes wrong and Shelby sees the face of a boy she doesn't know

Shelby wants to live a normal life. She looks forward to her senior year in high school, where she plans to develop her acting skills. She longs to leave her past behind, to obliterate the memories that trigger her anxiety and PTSD, which she succeeds through centralized treatments. Everything is fine for a while, until she meets Auden Keplar. He looks familiar, sounds familiar, everything about him screams deja vu. He is the guy that lurks within the dark recesses of her mind, and emotions inte ...more

Originally reviewed on the blog.

Shelby has been on a car accident. To stop the panic attacks, her mother enrolled her in a clinical program which also erased her memory of the accident. Upon returning home and back to school, she can't help but feel strange - as if there's some piece missing - especially when she met the boy who she thought was only a hallucination.

I could say that this is the first book I've read with this kind of stor

Imagine a treatment that would completely cure PTSD. No more panic attacks. No more breakdowns. Seems crazy, right? Renee Collins has created a story where that treatment is real and can be used to erase negative memories that trigger PTSD like symptoms. Intrigued? I was! I wanted to know how this treatment helped the lead character Shelby ..

This was the perfect read for me. After finishing Mary Shelley's Frankenstein I was looking for something modern and a little less heavy. A good YA romance was just the ticket.

"Remember Me Always" fits in the YA romance genre perfectly, but it still has a uniqueness in the plot. The idea of technology that can erase traumatic memories was interesting and believable in the presentation. I was drawn in immediately by the mystery surrounding the need for the memory treatment as well as by the intri

Wow. This book has surprised me in many ways. Originally I thought this was going to be yet another fluffy romance/contemporary read, however as each chapter progressed, that though alone was a big overstatement. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the route this novel took and I’m quite glad for the way it ended, though I’m still wrapped up on how eerily realistic it came to be. Many romance books that you come across with today are quite high up on the “not likely to happen” spectrum and leave many wi ...more
Thanks to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Fire for the opportunity to read this book! Remember Me Always by Renee Collins is a bit of a dystopian because of the mind memory erasing. Shelby is the victim of an accident she can’t remember because of a memory-erasing treatment. In her latest treatment session, Shelby sees a young man that she doesn’t remember. Later, as she sits waiting for a capture-the-flag game to end, that young man approaches her and cautiously says hello to her. His name is Auden. ...more

I wish I could score this 3.5 stars. I definitely thought it was above average but not quite deserving of 4-stars.

I found the main character to be almost bland. I know she was struggling with her memory loss throughout the book, but I don’t necessarily think that would erase her personality.

Additionally, I found her boyfriend to be rather one-note. He was intense and loves her in the obsessive way high school romances can be, but aside from his love for Shelby, what else was there? The book di

Filled with grief, intensity and twists and turns, this is the sort of book that is definitely for those who loves stories about forbidden love. For myself, I am a fan of stories about lost love or forgotten love, and this was a pleasant surprise for me. I was rooting for Auden to be the one for Shelby, hoping that things will work out for them, but this is complicated by a tragedy that struck them both. Still, it goes back to the root of how selfless and forgiving love is, of how beautiful it c ...more

This book was about a girl who was in a car accident. She had her memory completely erased so she wouldn't remember anything. While she was in brain surgery her mother had them erase her boyfriend too. The whole book she tries to get all of her memories back because everyone is constantly lying about what happened to her and about her boyfriend.
I didn't really like this book because the main character ended up getting hurt a lot in the end. Also, the romance part of the book was very romantic b

While I was able to see where this was headed, it was still an enjoyable read because the writing was very good. I wanted to scream at some of Shelby's decisions so you can say the author got me involved in her book. I like that the author wrapped it up with an Epilogue of the characters paths in life. In summary, a great read for YA and above.

Imagine a world where technology can be used to erase memories. The ultimate mind control of a parent over their child. What would the ramifications be? Are the memories lost forever? Remember Me Always explores those avenues as well as others in a twisting mystery of guilt, forgiveness and sacrificial love. The importance of knowing your identity before you can give yourself to someone in a relationship.
