What’s up, beautiful bookworms! Today’s book is something I was supposed to read and review by December LOL, but I’m still technically not late, right? Said book is Chemistry by C.L. Lynch, which is a spoof of Twilight but also manages to be a pretty good story on its own! I’m actually a bit surprised that the mythology has been established as well as it had been, for a book that’s a parody. Also the lead character, Stella Blunt, is plus-sized, which is pretty cool because I don’t see that often represented in books!
An excerpt from 34% of the book:
Apparently I could flirt with Howie fine as long as we were constructing elaborate fantasies. Maybe, since I knew all of this was nonsense, it meant that anything I said could also fall into this considered nonsense. It was like, “Oh, we didn’t mean any of that, did we?”, and that made it okay.
“Who has the next prettiest brains to me?”
“No one even comes close.”
“There have to be lots of smart girls at school.”
“Smart, sure. But there’s flute-and-asparagus smart, and trumpet-and-licorice smart, and even brass-and-onion smart. Then there’s you.”
“You know, I don’t buy the strawberry symphony thing. I’m far too angry.”
I think I wouldn’t really mind living in the world of Chemistry, mainly because if it follows the Twilight plot then I’m pretty sure I’m going to be safe as one of those random students in a high school in Canada. Plus, I haven’t really been to Canada before, so that’d be fun! I could be cluelessly going around exploring Canada and shopping and hanging around, while Stella figures out how to deal with all those zombies and stuff. I don’t even care about Howie thinking I’m not the smartest person in school as long as I don’t have to deal with their crap lol!
