[Special thanks to the publisher for the review copy!]
The sequel to the sci-fi hit Forget Tomorrow is a twisting, turning roller-coaster ride—the perfect sci-fi futuristic read.
Seventeen-year-old Jessa Stone is the most valuable citizen in Eden City. Her psychic abilities could lead to significant scientific discoveries — if only she’d let TechRA study her. But after they kidnapped and experimented on her as a child, cooperating with the scientists is the last thing Jessa would do.
But when she discovers the past isn’t what she assumed, Jessa must join forces with budding scientist Tanner Callahan to rectify a fatal mistake made ten years ago. She’ll do anything to change her past — even if it means aligning herself with the enemy she swore to defeat.
Forget Tomorrow and my poor heart
I wanted to read Remember Yesterday right after I finished reading Forget Tomorrow, but that was last February, and imagine the torture of waiting for the moment when Callie wakes up.
I thought Jessa would use time travel to stop Callie from killing herself. That was the idea inside my head – I wasn’t thinking of what would happen if Jessa tried to change the past.
You might want to reread the epilogue of Forget Tomorrow.
Remember Yesterday and my (still) poor heart
Remember Yesterday is rich in emotion. The book started with a touching scene that will later have a significant impact on one of the character’s decisions. Characters in this book felt worthless and abandoned. They were doubting themselves. They believed they deserved less. They were sad, and my heart goes out to them.
Jessa and Tanner made me smile a lot with their moments. I ship them more than I ship Callie and Logan (sorry!) – mostly because my heart is dancing whenever they’re together. ❤
Time Travel and Future Memory
Remember Yesterday revolved around time travel – how it took people away and how it gave people back. Scenes from Forget Tomorrow resurfaced, and mysteries were unraveled.
Some questions about Future Memory were answered. And there’s more to Olivia’s vision of the genocide.
Actually, there’s more to everything in this book, and that’s why I love it.
Family and Sacrifice
Family is not just about blood. There’s so much more to family than biology.
Remember Yesterday presented the relationships within families – there’s so much love and forgiveness in this book.
It was painful to read about the things characters did for their loved ones, but I admire the courage behind the sacrifices made.
So much love for this sequel. SO. MUCH. LOVE. ❤
I could tell that the story was carefully planned and cleverly executed. I talked to Pintip right after reading and I mostly used words in uppercase letters because of all the feels.
ME = MIND-BLOWN.
There will be a third book (OF COURSE, THERE SHOULD BE) and it’s called Seize Today. Pintip said that it’s Olivia and Ryder’s book AND I AM SO EXCITED BECAUSE OLIVIA AND RYDER ARE NEW CHARACTERS TO ROOT FOR AND POSSIBLY A NEW SHIP. ❤
Remember Yesterday healed broken hearts from Forget Tomorrow. With its twists and revelations, the book is a sequel that did not disappoint, building anticipation for Seize Today and expanding the world introduced to readers in Forget Tomorrow. Hugs to Pintip for writing this precious sequel that deserves 5 stars. ❤
Final Rating: 5/5
