Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

  This book reached my hands after a recommendation from  a close friend, for which I always be thankful and believe is my duty to recommend it too. 
  In simple terms, this book is the love story between Alex, a tough gang member and Brittany, a rich blood princess type. Two very different people who have a kindred soul and are walking through life wearing an armor for their survival. The story begings when they are partnered for a chemistry project leading them to mingle their problems. From threads of losing their life to maintain a facade for the family's sake they both will find the strength in the other. 
  The book has some parts that were hard to read, but were essential to the story to show the reality surrounding a gang member, otherwise would have lacked authenticity. Despite the fact this book would have your heart in your throat the end gives the reader hope. Personally, is the best ending I have ever read in a book because I realize no everything goes as planned but at still it will fall into place, sooner or later.

Twenty Eight and a Half Wishes by DeniseGroverSwank

As a new pattern in my life, I decided to keep reading from the app "Whattpad" and found a suspense story.
  Twenty Eight and a Half Wishes is the story of rose and grown woman who haven't enjoy the simple things in life and I would dare to say I haven't live at all, until one day she decides to reveal against her mother. Sadly, that same day her mother is murder and she becomes the first suspect. With a mysterious neighbor, and the many break ins she had suffered Rose gets involved in something bigger than her and decides to live before her death, that's why she decides to make a list of twenty eight wishes and plans to accomplish them before her death, thing is she knows exactly the day of her death.
  I fully recommended this story full of suspense, unexpected events, action, and the importance of little things in life.

You, my Punishment by Mmms29

  I believe that the base of experiencing new things is getting out of our personal comfort zone, that's why I decided to try the app "Whatpadd" and do my review on what I read there and was an fulfilling experience.
 The story is a Islamic story written by a Islamic itself and is about an arranged marriage. I had never read an Islamic story before or was familiarized with their believes however this story opened my eyes to the belief of others and why they do the things they do and act a certain way. For example, I learned that girls hide their hair because that way they feel closer to their God.    
  The story itself makes the reader think about the strength of love and where love can be born in. It makes the reader question the lost of identity and touches topics as violence, religion, self-harm, suicide, and guilt. Personally, I enjoyed the simplicity in which the writer expressed all this topics in about seventy chapter full of advice and life lessons.
