The Unofficial Amnesia Book List

The Unofficial Amnesia Book List

 
A warning before you read ahead, some of these books the amnesia and/or memory loss is a spoiler.  Also, for the purposes of this page I am including intentional memory blocking on the part of the amnesiac, drug induced amnesia, and amnesia or altered memory as a result of accident, magic, or other brain injury.  I did not include Alzheimer’s related memory issues.
*Indicates I have read it. No reviews on this page, just means I agree that there was amnesia.

I used many lists I found to supplement my own knowledge but did not include books I could not confirm actually contained amnesia.  Feel free to contact me using the links above for additions, I will do my best to update where I can get confirmation
 
Also, a special mention to Unwrapping the Castelli Secret by Caitlin Crews in which the heroine (who has been in hiding) runs into the hero and then fakes amnesia.  (None of this is a spoiler.  That’s chapter 2.)
