Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland: A Review

Hi everyone! I'm back with another ARC review! Life has been kind of crazy these last couple of weeks, so I haven't had much time to read. But for me, reading is really important because it is how I unwind. A while ago, Emma of Miss Print sent me several ARCs to read and review. So, when things got hectic, I decided to pick one of them up! I finally settled on reading Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland.

Honestly, this review isn't going to be very long. The cover is what drew me to this book and I overlooked the warning in the synopsis declaring it to be a cross between John Green and Rainbow Rowell (I only like one book from each of those two authors, so it really wasn't a promising start). I finished the book pretty quickly, but I honestly wasn't invested in it. I found most of the characters to be lackluster and a little Gilmore-esque in their pop-culture name dropping. The only character that really seemed to fit their personality was Sadie, and she just seemed out of place most of the time. So, even though the book was technically good (it was well written and there weren't any glaring grammar or spelling issues), I just couldn't bring myself to enjoy the story and give it 2 out of 5 stars.
