Waiting on Wednesday - The Forgetting Curve (Memento Nora #2) by Angie Smibert

The Forgetting Curve (Memento Nora #2) by Angie Smibert
April 2012 from Marshall Cavendish

Aiden Nomura likes to open doors—especially using his skills as a hacker—to see what’s hidden inside. He believes everything is part of a greater system: the universe. The universe shows him the doors, and he keeps pulling until one cracks open. Aiden exposes the flaw, and the universe—or someone else—will fix it. It’s like a game.

Until it isn’t.

When a TFC opens in Bern, Switzerland, where Aiden is attending boarding school, he knows things are changing. Shortly after, bombs go off within quiet, safe Bern. Then Aiden learns that his cousin Winter, back in the States, has had a mental breakdown. He returns to the US immediately.

But when he arrives home in Hamilton, Winter’s mental state isn’t the only thing that’s different. The city is becoming even stricter, and an underground movement is growing.

Along with Winter’s friend, Velvet, Aiden slowly cracks open doors in this new world. But behind those doors are things Aiden doesn’t want to see—things about his society, his city, even his own family. And this time Aiden may be the only one who can fix things . . . before someone else gets hurt.

I was happy to see this on Angie's Facebook page yesterday. I really enjoyed Memento Nora - fast, fun dystopian - and was happy that the second would be out soon. Looks like we will have new characters and a bit of a new location. Awesome! Not sure what Winter's "mental breakdown" is all about. She seemed so strong and confident in MN. Regardless, I'm in!

My interview with Angie Smibert


  1. It looks cool! Come check out my wow!!

  2. Oh,good! Hadn't heard about this one yet. I liked Nora too -- something else to look forward to. Thanks.

  3. ooooh, I love how the covers look like comic book covers. I liked Memento Nora so I'm definitely going to be checking out this one. =)

  4. I haven't read Momenta Nora yet but I like looking at the covers! I hadn't heard about The Forgetting Curve yet... thanks!

  5. So happy to see this...can't wait! :0)

  6. Ooo, this one sounds pretty cool. I love both covers, but I still haven't gotten a chance to read the first one. Awesome choice, Jen!

  7. Oh, huh. I didn't know that the sequel wasn't going to be from the same perspective as the first book. I wasn't a fan of Momento Nora--mainly because it felt derivative of the Uglies books--but I'll definitely keep this in mind.
