Book Review – Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland

Our Chemical Hearts / Krystal Sutherland / 2016 / Penguin Books / ISBN 9780143573906 / 313 Pages / Young Adult

Henry Page has never been in love. The slo-mo, can’t-eat-can’t-sleep kind of love he’s been hoping for just hasn’t been on the cards – at least not yet. Henry’s too busy trying to get into a semi-decent college and become editor of his school newspaper, a dream three years in the making. The rest of his spare time he spends with his best friends, Lola and Murray, playing video games and advising them on their own sordid love lives. Then he meets Grace Town, the elusive new girl in school, who wears oversized boys’ clothing, walks with a cane, rarely seems to shower, and is hiding crushing secrets. She’s hardly who Henry expected his dream girl to be, but when the two are chosen to edit the paper together, sparks fly. After all this time, Henry’s about to learn firsthand just how disastrous the road to first love can be – and that sometimes it’s the detours that end up mattering much more.

So it’s been a while since I did one of these post. I haven’t really been telling you guys what I have been reading, but if you follow me on Twitter, Instagram or even Goodreads, you will definitely be up to date with which books I have been reading.

Last night after going out with my friends, I finished reading the last 20+ pages of Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland. A great young adult book, about a boy who finds himself falling in love with a girl who is still in love with her dead boyfriend. Raw, emotional and breathtakingly good, this is definitely a book to go out and read.

My book review for Our Chemical Hearts will be out shortly so stick around for it.

For my birthday my mother brought me Nicholas Spark’s new book Two by Two. I am going to be starting it today. I can’t wait to get stuck into it. I have read almost all of Nicholas Sparks’ book and I can’t wait to see how this one turns out. I will definitely be telling you all how I feel about it sooner rather than later.

What are you guys reading at the moment?

Stick around…

Can’t wait to see what comes out of these books.

What are you guys reading this weekend?

When Sienna’s boyfriend proposes – in front of her mum, sister, for crying out loud – he takes her by surprise. She already has two broken engagements under her belt.

As her mum’s wedding day dawns near and her ex begs for a second chance, she’s forced to acknowledge some uncomfortable truths about why her marriage failed, and decide is she’ll let pride stand in the way of her own happily-ever-after.
