Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland


Hello Everyone,

Today I'm bringing you another book review, Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland.

As always, this review will NOT CONTAIN ANY SPOILERS, so feel free to go on.


So if you follow me on YouTube (Shameless self promo), you'll have been me talk about this fantastic read as part of the HotKey books Book Tour at the beginning of this month, if not, then you should really be following my YouTube channel... Just kidding.... maybe.

Our Chemical Hearts is a newly released Young Adult fiction that tells the classic 'Boy Meets Girl' story in a way that is anything but classic.

The story follows a very likable young man called Henry Page, a film buff (that comes out in some excellent movie quotes thrown into his dialogue) with a hugely romantic heart. Henry is on the search for that heart stopping moment of first love, just like you see in Hollywood.

Enter, stage right, Grace Town.

Grace isn't your usual teen love interest, for a start, she walks with a limp and a cane, smells a little, shall we say... ripe, and she wears oversized men's clothing and yet Henry is inexplicably drawn into her complicated world.

Henry can see Grace is a collection of broken pieces and he can't resist the compelling urge he has to discover what caused the fracturing of Grace's soul and then put her back together again, the question is, does Grace want to be saved?

Filled with mystery, heartbreaking emotion, raw feelings and a scattering of hilarious conversation, Our Chemical Hearts was a fantastic read for me, and I can't recommend this story enough for people of all ages (hell I'm definitely not a teenager anymore but I can still really enjoy a good book set with teen characters), if you'd like a more in depth look at the book (and yes, still spoiler free) have a little look at the Video I recorded below.



Have any of you read Our Chemical Hearts? Would you?

Till next time,

Rosy xx

  6. This is such a lovely review! I don't often read much YA but I really like the sound of Our Chemical Hearts! If only I didn't have such a towering block of books to read by my bed and I'd definitely go and buy it. I love the sound of Henry, and I like that the characters are original and not the typical cliches. 100% sounds like an intriguing read for sure :) Also throughly enjoyed your YT video; you're so friendly on camera and likeable! Will deffo be subscribing lovely! <3
