The Lonely Hearts Club by: Elizabeth Eulberg

The Lonely Hearts Club by: Elizabeth Eulberg

Released on: December 29,2009 by Point

Summary: Penny is sick of boys and sick of dating. So she vows:no more. It's a personal choice...and,of course,soon everybody wants to know about it. And a few other girls are inspired. A movement is born: The Lonely Hearts Club (named after the band from Sgt.Pepper). Penny is suddenly known for her nondating ways...which is too bad,because there's this certain boy she can't help but like.

Review: Let me just start by saying Beatles fan will love this. I'm a BIG Beatles fan and loved whatever was dedicated to them in this book.

Penny Lane Bloom is heartbroken after her nasty break up with her boyfriend,Nate. After her break up she makes up The Lonely Hearts Club. A club where she vows to never date in high school ever again. Soon,other girls hear about her club and want to join. Soon the Club is known throughout her high school. But then,she starts having a crush on a boy...

I liked Penny. She seemed like a girl you would want to be friends with. She's fun,trustworthy,and sometimes had me laughing out loud. I basically liked all the characters in the book except for Nate and Rosanna.

What I didn't like about the book though,was that it seemed so PERFECT all the time. It was predictable. It was too cliche to me. Sometimes I felt it was fake. The school was perfect. The girl always got into their teams or whatever.

Grade: 4 stars

Going too Far by: Jennifer Echols

Going Too Far by: Jennifer Echols
Published: March 17,2009 by MTV Books
Summary: All Meg has ever wanted is to get away. Away from high school. Away from her backwater town. Away from her parents who seem determined to keep her imprisoned in their dead-end lives. But one crazy evening involving a dare and forbidden railroad tracks, she goes way too far... and almost doesn't make it back.
John made a choice to stay. To enforce the rules. To serve and protect. He has nothing but contempt for what he sees as childish rebellion, and he wants to teach Meg a lesson she won't soon forget. But Meg pushes him to the limit by questioning everything he learned at the police academy. And when he pushes back, demanding to know why she won't be tied down, they will drive each other to the edge - and over...
Review: Let me first begin with wow this book was amazing. I heard great things about this book and I thought I was the only one who hasn't read it in the blogosphere. So, of course I picked up a copy.
The books begins with rebel Meg with her bad-ass boyfriend Eric,her straight A friend Courtney and her guy on their town's train tracks. Pretty soon she and her friends get arrested resulting in Meg having to ride along with police officer John After (who arrested her) for the rest of her spring break.
I really liked the characters in this book. I felt that I could easily relate to Meg but there were some parts where she got a bit annoying. I loved John,he was basically all what a girl wants. He was nice,kind,and funny at times.
The Mid-ending/ending I loved. I never saw it coming and I was really surprised by it.
5 stars

Waiting on Wednesday (14)

Whisper by: Phobe Kitanidis
Coming out: April 27,2010 by Baltzer+Bray
Summary: I’d love a cup of coffee. I wish she knew how pretty she was. I wish I could drop this kid in the dryer sometimes. I just want her to be happy. I hope she didn’t find out what Ben said about her. I wish I knew how many calories were in a bite of muffin…
Joy is used to hearing Whispers. She’s used to walking down the street and instantly knowing people’s deepest, darkest desires. She uses this talent for good, to make people happy and give them what they want. But for her older sister, Jessica, the family gift is a curse, and she uses it to make people’s lives—especially Joy’s—miserable. Still, when Joy Hears a frightening whisper from Jessica's own mind, she knows she has to save her sister, even if it means deserting her friends, stealing a car and running away with a boy she barely knows—a boy who may have a dark secret of his own.
Wow,this looks good. I heard mixed reviews but I hope I like it!
