30 Day Book Challenge - Day 5

Day 5 - A book that makes me happy... "Perfect Chemistry" by Simone Elkeles

I find it pretty sad that this was the hardest category for me to choose a book for so far. I think it's because when I'm reading I really like the books that deal with the grittier emotions and everything doesn't work out to be all hunky dory.

But I did find one book in my stacks that just makes me smiling thinking about it. "Perfect Chemistry" by Simone Elkeles wasn't something I usually would read when I picked it up. And I must admit, it was the cover that drew me in.

I think I just like it because even though neither Alex nor Brittany are perfect characters they are perfect for each other. It's that appeal of forbidden love that brings them together in the first place but soon they come to realize that maybe they aren't as different as they first thought.

No matter what, by the end of the book I usually have a smile on my face and a few warm tinglies (yes, that's a word) in my belly.

The other two books in the series are pretty good too, although not as good as the first. And I like how you get more of Brittany and Alex's story even though they aren't the main characters in those two.

Coming up tomorrow: Meet Perfect Chemistry's counter part and a book that makes me sad :'(
