Publisher's Summary

What would happen if you were visited by your younger self, and got a chance for a do-over? Alice Love is 29 years old, madly in love with her husband, and pregnant with their first child. So imagine her surprise when, after a fall, she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! she HATES the gym!) and discovers that she's actually 39, has three children, and is in the midst of an acrimonious divorce. A knock on the head has misplaced 10 years of her life, and Alice isn't sure she likes who she's become. It turns out, though, that forgetting might be the most memorable thing that has ever happened to Alice.

    Story
    "Slow at first but then charming and heartwarming"
    If you could sum up What Alice Forgot in three words, what would they be?

    witty, relatable, pondering/introspective


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alice, I see a lot of myself in her. The introverted girl who, as she gets older surprises herself with how much she's changed. I thought making her lose her memory was an interesting way of having the character look introspectively and asses which qualities are worth keeping from both her younger and older self to get to a place where she can be completely happy with who she is. Very nicely done.

    "Absolutely loved this book!"

    I absolutely loved this book!! I have really enjoyed Liane Moriarty's books. I've read Big Little Lies and The Husband's Secret as well and they were both fantastic. I would highly recommend all three books!

    Story
    "Appreciate every moment"

    This is my first book by this author and the story hit me with a profound sense of how life goes by too fast. We all get too busy and caught up in our own worlds to really appreciate what we already have. I am seriously going to rethink how I spend my time and try to enjoy every moment. Life is all about the journey not just the destination. I'm anxiously downloading another story by the same author.

    Story
    "Funny and poignant."

    Alice loses her memory of the last 20 years when she falls off a treadmill. She is a very different person with a very different life. Gradually she discovers who she is now. The first part of the book is intriguing. Alice has changed a lot in the forgotten years but she can't go back. She has to embrace her current life and see if she can remember her past.

    But the story seems to lag a bit in the middle as she slowly remembers her past and tries to understand her present and deal with an estranged husband (who her old self adored) and three children who she doesn't know, and a parent who has remarried and dances the salsa.

    There is humor and pain and happiness.
