Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not Really Worth The Read There was so much I did not like about this book. The magic was very out of place and felt forced. And the whole concept of this Magical Heartbreaking Club is weird and I did not like it. It seems ridiculous to think that these girls got their hearts so broken (some by guys that they weren't dating, just were in love with from afar) that they were like "NOPE EFF IT LET'S BREAK EVERYONE'S HEARTS SO THEY KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE". What a ridiculous concept. When you get your heart broken you typically don't want to hurt someone that way so you do everything you can to protect the next person you are with from ever feeling that way. This whole book also made it seem as though if Lucy didn't complete her task in these seven days that she would die, not that she just wouldn't get her magical and mystical powers. Also, what are these magical powers? The ability to be super hot and stop caring about people? Considering this was recommended to me as a "fantasy" and "magic" novel, it seems absurd that there is no real mention or explanation of the actual magic that these girls will be getting once they complete the quest of breaking a heart. Characters The trio was ridiculous. They are ridiculously hot girls because they use magic to break boy's hearts and, oh yeah, now that they have vowed to never love again they are just super awesome at everything. I rolled my eyes while typing that out. The parties that they host and go to are ridiculously extravagant and the fact that Olivia just happens to own a house and no one questions it is probably the largest part of the "fantasy" aspect of this novel. Lucy is extremely naive and not an interesting heroine or protagonist. Does she make the right choice in not breaking a certain heart? Yes, but it isn't enough to redeem her and all her stupid actions in my mind. She is constantly making immature and inappropriate choices and doesn't think about the consequences. It seems odd to me that she would make time for Tristan while she is dating Alex, but doesn't make time for him because she starts hanging out with the new three girls. If you don't throw over your best friend for a guy, you aren't going to throw him over for a new bunch of friends that you don't even think like you as a person for the majority of the novel. And the ending. Like the whole book was "Tristan doesn't fall in love" so like let's just keep it that way. And if the next book is like, oh now Tristan is in love with someone, I might actually stab my eyes out. Overall: 1.5/5 stars. Honestly, I only finished reading this because I was at work and had nothing else to do. Not really worth the read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a "must read" but still pretty good! When I started reading Lynn Weingarten’s latest novel, The Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers, I was rolling my eyes. It’s the story of Lucy, just entering her sophomore year of high school after a summer apart from her boyfriend. Little does she know, her boyfriend is going to break up with her. Just as she feels like her heart is going to break into a million pieces, she meets three girls who say they can cure her broken heart, using the tears of broken-hearted boys. It’s not the book that I found myself rolling my eyes over — it was Lucy. At first I wondered how she could be so smitten with a boy that it seems like her whole world revolved around him, changing her personality just so he would like her more … but then I realized that I was once a young girl in high school, too — heck, even into university I did stupid things over boys, fawning over them like they were my one and only mission in life (I do like to think I’ve grown out of that horrible phase), and then I stopped rolling my eyes, feeling empathy for Lucy who was only doing what so many girls have done before. This book was quite different from what I was expecting. It was kind of in that magic/paranormal realm, but not. It was kind of a romance, but not. It was kind of predictable, but not. I liked how it had a bit of a fairytale in it, with magic thrown here or there, but it was still just a story about a girl trying to find herself. I did have a favourite character in the book, but they really didn’t get a lot of face time on the page, which made me sad. And yet, the character I hated most, Alex — Lucy’s ex — got plenty of time. While I liked the story and felt that it was well crafted, I finished it wondering what the point of it was. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed reading it, but the whole concept of the “Secret Sisterhood of Heartbreakers” seemed odd to me, like there was no point for the group. Or maybe I just felt like it wasn’t a group I would want to join myself. Besides the innards of the book, I have to say that I fell in love with the cover first — the pretty stars being blown out, the contrasting fonts and colours, how the red surrounding the title pops out at you, but not not enough to really stand out and shadow the title. It’s a great cover. I’ll admit it now that I wasn’t happy how the story finished, but I’m still quite happy that I read the book. It was nice to read something different for a change. It’s unique, a memorable novel and a quick read — easy to digest in a morning. Not really a “must read” book, in my opinion.
