Title: Our Chemical Hearts (2016)
Author: Krystal Sutherland
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary

Henry Page has never been in love. He fancies himself a hopeless romantic, but the slo-mo, heart palpitating, can’t-eat-can’t-sleep kind of love that he’s been hoping for just hasn’t been in the cards for him—at least not yet. Instead, he’s been happy to focus on his grades, on getting into a semi-decent college and finally becoming editor of his school newspaper. Then Grace Town walks into his first period class on the third Tuesday of senior year and he knows everything’s about to change.

Grace isn’t who Henry pictured as his dream girl—she walks with a cane, wears oversized boys’ clothes, and rarely seems to shower. But when Grace and Henry are both chosen to edit the school paper, he quickly finds himself falling for her. It’s obvious there’s something broken about Grace, but it seems to make her even more beautiful to Henry, and he wants nothing more than to help her put the pieces back together again. And yet, this isn’t your average story of boy meets girl. Krystal Sutherland’s brilliant debut is equal parts wit and heartbreak, a potent reminder of the bittersweet bliss that is first love.

Read the first lines… 

I always thought the moment you met the great love of your life would be more like the movies. Not exactly like the movies, obviously, with the slow-mo and the hair blowing in the breeze and the swelling instrumental soundtrack. But I at least thought there would be something, you know? A skipped beat of the heart. A tug at your soul where something inside you goes, “Holy shit. There she is. Finally, after all this time, there she is.”

There was none of that when Grace Town walked into Mrs. Beady’s afternoon drama class ten minutes late on the second Tuesday of senior year. Grace was the type of person who made an impression on any room she walked into, but not for the kind of reasons that generate instant and undying affection. She was of average height and average build and average attractiveness, all things that should’ve made it easy for her to assimilate into a new high school without any of the dramatic tropes that usually inhabit such storylines.

  1. I love this whole look!!!! The white and the blue…makes it look very porcelain, at the same time this look like a color scheme I would totally wear 😍 well maybe not the top lol but I especially love the skirt!


  2. I really love this outfit. It’s not something I’d wear myself, I have no where I could possibly wear it without being overdressed, but oh it’s so gorgeous, especially that skirt! 😀
    It sounds like a good book as well, have you read it?


  3. This cover IS my aesthetic *o* I keep reading reviews after reviews of this book and don’t know if I should read it or not, it sounds so sad but also fun?? I don’t know x’)
    Love the iphone case!!


  4. I came to read your review on Three Dark Crowns and got totally distracted by this – so beaut!! And that skirt! Oh and the book looks good too haha. Makes me want to revisit Polyvore. 🙂
