So I’ve been in a bit of a book slump since the release of A Court of Wings and Ruin back in May and it’s only been recently that I’ve picked up a book, let alone one that I’ve wanted to write about (I’m not entirely sure why because unlike a lot of Maas fans I enjoyed the book). Between then and now I’ve also started a new job so life has been a little up in the air recently but we’re finally getting there. I picked this book up in ASDA to keep me occupied at work. Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland seemed to be the fluffy feel-good story that I needed to pull me out of the slump. I read this book in less than two days. I think it was worth it.
The book is a love story. Almost. Kind of. Not really. It’s set out that way, with Henry Page looking for that heart-stopping kind of love that he’s read about (he’s an English Lit student at heart), and seen in movies and witnessed first hand in his parents.
