Our Chemical Hearts
Our Chemical Hearts - Krystal Sutherland

I received a review copy of this from Goodreads and since there are lots of long and detailed reviews already I'm just going to do a thumbnail review.

Overall I'd have to say I enjoyed myself as I was reading this but it's definitely a novel that requires a little suspension of disbelief the further you get into it. Looking back I think I'd knock it down 1/2 a star for some of the later reveals. I don't think some of the things that happened in the novel would have happened in real life but maybe. It just doesn't feel completely believable for adults to behave in the ways they did.

If it feels as though I'm being deliberately vague I am but I don't want to give away any spoilers.

It wasn't a bad read by any means and you can see from the reviews how many others loved it. I would recommend it, just with some minor reservations.

Black Rabbit Hall
Black Rabbit Hall - Eve Chase


I was almost ready to bail on this at about the 150 page mark but since this was a Goodreads giveaway title I thought I'd give it a more time and even though I didn't love it I'm glad I stuck with it.

When the twist finally happened I was sure i had it figured out and then I didn't and then I did so I give the author props for throwing me a curve but overall it wasn't anything new and while my younger self probably would have loved it I finished it more out of obligation.

The 0.5 was for the nice ending--otherwise a solid but not terribly exciting 3.
