Goodreads Description

What isn't written, isn't remembered. Even your crimes.

Nadia lives in the city of Canaan, where life is safe and structured, hemmed in by white stone walls and no memory of what came before. But every twelve years the city descends into the bloody chaos of the Forgetting, a day of no remorse, when each person's memories – of parents, children, love, life, and self – are lost. Unless they have been written.

In Canaan, your book is your truth and your identity, and Nadia knows exactly who hasn't written the truth. Because Nadia is the only person in Canaan who has never forgotten.

But when Nadia begins to use her memories to solve the mysteries of Canaan, she discovers truths about herself and Gray, the handsome glassblower, that will change her world forever. As the anarchy of the Forgetting approaches, Nadia and Gray must stop an unseen enemy that threatens both their city and their own existence – before the people can forget the truth. And before Gray can forget her.

Why I'm Waiting

This book sounds so interesting! Can you imagine having everything you know be erased every 12 years? Can you imagine being the one person (or so it seems) who never forgets? I'm glad the description doesn't give too much away but it has left me with so many questions. How does this whole ting work? Who set this up and for what purpose? Why might the main character, Nadia be immune to forgetting? And if she is immune, there must be other others, right?

Like I said, I have so many questions! This book has definitely caught my interest. It doesn't hurt that the cover is beautiful too! I'm thinking about pre-ordering this one.

Have you guys heard of this one? Any thought about it? Are you also looking forward to it after reading the description?
