So Elana Johnson had this fabulous idea to hug a bunch of authors and books today. It's a day to celebrate books that we've read and loved and want to recommend to the world! It's a day to check out every book and author on the master list and find some new reading material you think will interest you.
A huge thank you to Elana for organizing such an awesome event!
For the master list, check out this link!
NOTE: Read to the bottom for your chance to win this book!
The book I picked is PERFECT CHEMISTRY by Simone Elkeles. This is a book that blew away all measures of success. It's got an awesome book trailer that makes the book like it might be a bit of fluff, but seriously, PERFECT CHEMISTRY is not even close to fluff.
It's the story of a boy and a girl who have absolutely nothing in common. And when the year starts off, they are forced to be chemistry partners. Sure they fall in love. Sure there's some awesome romance. But what I loved the most about this book is it felt so real. Not once was the author kind to the characters. Brittany and Alex had every single thing going against them. And I couldn't stop turning the pages.
PERFECT CHEMISTRY met and exceeded every expectation I had for it, and even if you think YA romance is not your thing, pick up this book and give it a chance. And while you're at it, pick up an extra copy for that special teen you know. You won't be sorry!
Okay, book giveaway time...
