In I Almost Forgot About You, Dr. Georgia Young’s wonderful life–great friends, family, and successful career–aren’t enough to keep her from feeling stuck and restless. When she decides to make some major changes in her life, including quitting her job as an optometrist and moving house, she finds herself on a wild journey that may or may not include a second chance at love. Georgia’s bravery reminds us that it’s never too late to become the person you want to be, and that taking chances, with your life and your heart, are always worthwhile.

My Thoughts:

I’ve always loved Terry McMillian’s work so I couldn’t wait to read her newest book,  I Almost Forgot About You.  I expected a page turner that kept me on the edge of my seat, had great characters, and really took me to a whole new world. That’s not quite what  got from this book though.

At first, it was hard to get into. It moved slowly and just didn’t grab my attention. It took me much longer to finish it than I had expected and that was almost forceful. I just couldn’t relate. Some of the characters were more developed than others, but  there were so many that it was hard to keep track of who was who.

Overall, I wasn’t impressed or even entertained by this book. It starts slow with very little pick up. There’s too many characters that aren’t relatable or developed. It didn’t grab my attention and couldn’t keep me  in the story long enough to sit more than 20-30 minutes at a time, which is not like me at all. I simply expected more from this book, but was let down.

Purchase it!
