The Heartbreakers (The Heartbreak Chronicles)
The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak
Publisher/Year: August 4th 2015 Sourcebooks Fire
Source/Format: e-arc | NetGalley
(Thanks NetGalley/Sourcebooks Fire!)
Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affects my opinion.

When this was originally started on Wattpad, I read it and loved it, so of course I requested it on NetGalley. I am pleased for Ali that she got a publishing deal for this book, as it is cute, but sadly there isn't much more to it. The plot was predictable, and while I liked all the characters, none of them were that interesting. I did enjoy the whole music/band storyline and it was nice to read it again because it had been a while, but it wasn't anything special, sadly.

It's About LoveIt's About Love by Steven Camden
Publisher/Year: August 4th 2015 HarperCollins Children's
Source/Format: e-arc | NetGalley
(Thanks NetGalley/HarperCollins!)
Rating: 4 stars out of 5

I'd heard mixed things about Camden's Tape, so I was wary about this going in to it, but I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the general premise, of a romance formed due to a film studies class at sixth-form because it seemed like something I could easily visualise, and I did really like how realistic it was, how something similar has probably happened many times. I enjoyed reading from Luke's POV, and how he didn't have the best background. A good book.

I really wanted to like this book. The cover is beautiful and I've really been loving historical fiction lately, so I gave this book quite high expectations, which may have been wrong from me. However, this doesn't excuse quite how bad this book unfortunately was. My main complaint is just how boring this book was; literally nothing happened, and everything felt forced. This was disappointing.
