A “cheerfully engaging”(Kirkus Reviews) novel for anyone who’s ever asked herself, “How did I get here?”

Alice Love is twenty-nine, crazy about her husband, and pregnant with her first child. So imagine Alice’s surprise when she comes to on the floor of a gym (a gym! She HATES the gym) and is whisked off to the hospital where she discovers the honeymoon is truly over—she’s getting divorced, she has three kids, and she’s actually 39 years old. Alice must reconstruct the events of a lost decade, and find out whether it’s possible to reconstruct her life at the same time. She has to figure out why her sister hardly talks to her, and how is it that she’s become one of those super skinny moms with really expensive clothes. Ultimately, Alice must discover whether forgetting is a blessing or a curse, and whether it’s possible to start over...

    Fun read
  • Good read once you get into it

    By Bashden23
    The beginning was interesting, the middle was a little difficult to get through,but worth it for the realizations she makes about herself, her life, her family & relationships. Overload of names introduced at the start & journal entries didn’t seem super necessary.
  • Good read if you like endless details

    It was a bit long winded. I liked parts of the book and other parts where just too wordy. I did like the characters, the plot, and storyline. I had to skip over some of it just because it was going on and on. I got bored with it after awhile. The ending was really good though.

    You actually can’t seem to fail with Liane Moriarty. She is a fabulous writer and all her books resonate deeply with the reader. What Alice Forgot is about a woman who temporarily looses her current memory and seems to think she is 10 years younger. This books reminds one of how time changes you, sometimes not for the best. However we need to try to remember the good stuff. I truly recommend it!!! And if you can read her other books too.

    I don’t think I’ve read them all, but I’ve read a lot of them, and this is my favorite of her books
  • Heartfelt and relatable

    By Jezzayy ahaa
    This is a wonderful story that is heart wrenching and relatable. I personally suffered a head injury and had issues with memory but not to the extreme of this character. This is one you won’t be able to put down!
