The Lonely Hearts Club
Have you ever been sick of boys or dating, I know I have! Ha Ha Ha! This is story is about Penny Lane ( noticed the Beatles references yet?) , who is just plain feed up with the whole romance thing and decided to nix it all together at least until she is out of high school ( if only most high school girls were that smart!) Along with her friends and of course the Fab Four ( the only guys allowed) Penny begins the Lonely Hearts Club but love finds her anyway!!!!
I actually really liked this book, it was heartwarming, fun and there wasn't too much drama. I don't like teen novels where it's drama drama drama, it makes me nervous. I also felt it was easy to relate to, what girl do you know that doesn't love to love love or love to hate it? (say that 5 times fast, I dare ya! ) Plus, it was a very fast and easy read! In case you haven't noticed this is my 3rd book in two days!!! I originally picked this book up because of the review from Stephenie Meyer, if you don't know her all I can say is Twilight. She highly recommended it on her website in December 2009 and there was a review from her on the book's dust jacket. I read it because of what she had to say, "A must read for anyone who's ever fallen in love-or sworn it off completely. A funny, fantastic debut!" Oh yeah did I mention this is Elizabeth Eulberg's first novel?
My favorite part of this novel though was all the Beatles references, who doesn't like the Beatles! I was singing through the whole thing! I'm singing now....
"...... We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,
We hope you will enjoy the show,
We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band,
Sit back and let the evening go.
Sgt. Pepper's lonely, Sgt. Pepper's lonely,
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band....."
Beatles + story I can relate too = 4.5 stars!
