Friday's Finest (15)

Friday's Finest is a meme hosted by Steff & Justine from A Bookful of Thoughts.

~Post a quote that really stuck to you after reading it in a book.
~Make sure it isn't a spoiler!
~If you'd like, expand on what you think it means and why you chose it.

Again, I'm woefully unprepared. But I'll whip out a trusty book from my bookshelf, one I mini-reviewed ages ago but is still a favourite among tons of bloggers. Oh, and this quote is just meant to be fun and random :) I read it and thought, Well this is fun and random.

Book: Perfect Chemistry
by Simone Elkeles



I'm having a nightmare that a thousand little Oompa Loompas are in my head, hammering my skull. Opening my eyes to bright light, I wince. The Oompa Loompas are still there, and I'm awake.

"You've got a hangover," a girl says to me.


I think that's the best description of a hangover I've ever read, it made me giggle when I found it.

So have you read this book before? Did you like it? And what do you think of the quote? :p


  1. I haven't read this book. Funny quote. Very descriptive. :)

  2. i have read it, and it's great! one of my favorites <3 the quote is hilarious! it's amazing how accurate it is :P

  3. Haha, I remember that quote. It's quite the unique way of describing a hangover.I really loved this book a lot. :)

  6. Hehe love it! Gosh it reminds me how amazing this book is!

  7. Guess I'm in the minority here, as I wouldn't necessarily liken a hangover to Oompa Loompas banging around in my head...but that's still a fun quote! :D
