In My Mailbox #5

This is my 5th week participating in "In my mailbox" by The Siren Story (http://www.thestorysiren.com/) Here is what I got this week....

Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created “perfect” life is about to unravel before her eyes. She’s forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for—her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect. Alex is a bad boy and he knows it. So when he makes a bet with his friends to lure Brittany into his life, he thinks nothing of it. But soon Alex realizes Brittany is a real person with real problems, and suddenly the bet he made in arrogance turns into something much more.

This book isn't typically what I look for when I read YA. But something about it appealed to me so much that I bought it on Amazon. I hope it turns out to be a good one.

I loved it!!!!!!! Some of it's a little unrealistic, but I didn't care. Can't wait for the sequel.

I haven't read it either but I HAVE heard amazing things. I don't remember seeing a bad review so that's good.

I don't know if you entered the Holey Donuts giveaway or not, but if you could check out this post and do so for my blog, it would mean a TON for my family and you can enter for the book afterwards too if you wish (White Cat by Holly Black ARC)!:
