3.5 stars.

It was really cute and I enjoyed it, but I found it very predictable. I think my 15-year-old-self would have loved it, but almost ten years have passed since I was that age, so... hahaha.

Anyway, I'll definitely read the second part "We can work it out", expecting a light and bubbly read, as this one was :).

Okay. Empecemos por el principio.
Creo que es la tercera vez que leo este libro. Y no me canso. La primera vez, cogí este libro con MUCHÍSIMAS GANAS. ¡Y no me defraudó! Amo a Elizabeth Eulberg. Y amo este libro.
description

Esta historia comienza con una historia idílica, un niña y un niño enamorados que solo se ven en los veranos, y a medida que crecen, van convirtiendo su historia en algo real, primeros besos, primeras tarjetas de San Valentín,. Y sigue con un corazón roto, el de la protagonista, Penny La

Empecé a leer este libro porque Elizabeth Eulberg, la autora, venía a la Feria Internacional del Libro de Bogotá y me parecía alta traición conocerla sin haber leído nada de ella. Cuando leí la sinopsis e investigué un poco, pensé que podría gustarme porque, oye, era un tema súper girly y amo ese tipo de libros; sin embargo, cuando los Beatles se atravesaron en el camino me asusté. Confesión: no los soporto. Ya, lo he dicho.

Yes, it was girly.
Yes, it was mushy.
Yes, it was predictable at times.

But seriously, how can you not love a book that gives so much lovin' to the Beatles?!?!? The main character's name is Penny Lane. Every chapter is a different Beatles song, and also a lyric from that song. There are countless Beatles references. Penny Lane makes a mixed CD for the guy she's digging and it's a Beatles mix. Penny and Ryan go to a Beatles tribute band concert. The cover of the book is a spin of the Beatles Abbey

I can't deal with vapid, insensitive and selfish girls like this. Sure they're immature 16/17 year olds, but I just can't deal with the plot in this book. It is not as cute and fluffy as the title makes out. I would think a Lonely Hearts Club would just be a nice little club of people who'd been heartbroken and need someone to talk to, but no, it's a group of gossipy, vain girls who have sworn off dating after a few guys were rotten to them, thus labelling all guys as pigs, morons etc.

I wondered if it would've been too subtle to wear a T-shirt that said thank you for your interest, but I am no longer dating.

The Lonely Hearts Club by Elizabeth Eulberg is a fun, fast, light YA contemporary romance that I finished in one sitting. The writing is engaging as are the characters in this story, and I was immediately drawn into this book from page one.

Penny Lane is tainted when it comes to guys. She’s just been cheated on by her long time love Nate, and as she reflects on all her pas

Reading challenge 2015: #15 Primer libro de autor popular.

Predecible. Cliché. Hipócrita. Un libro muy meh.

Acá tenemos a Penny, nuestra querida protagonista, que ha tenido un fracaso tras otro con chicos; se ha cansado de idealizarlos, verlos como objetos de culto bellos y perfectos, para enterarse al final que los chicos, de hecho, son personas, con defectos y virtudes. ¡Pero que sorpresa, che! Pero como Penny es una persona muy madura, funda este Club de los corazones solitarios porque sí, to

3.5 bumped up from 2.5

The only reason I bumped this one up is because of the musical aspect of the book. I thought it was interesting and it was something that I had not read a lot of. So... this book got wonderful reviews. Why were you, Sita going to give it a mere 2.5. Well I will tell you why. I will tell you why in the form of a song, no a list. Because the book has enough songs in it.

a mi yo de 15 años este libro le hubiera fascinado, sobre todo por la cantidad de clichés que hay y la forma en que se desarrolla el romance, sin embargo mi yo de 25 años, (si 25) he podido ver ciertas conductas, que mujeres seguimos después de tener un corazón roto y generalizarlo todo, sin embargo también he podido ver un gran impulso feminista, al darse su lugar, y hacer todo por ellas mismas, creo que es un libro que aparte de ser una linda historia nos invita a reflexionar sobre lo que se e ...more

Challenged by Sara to add a review on what you remember about a book you read ages ago.

I started to listen to The Beatles because of this book.

So, one of my friends recommended this for me and, I must say, I was a little skeptical. It is so different from what I usually read. I mean, no magic, science fiction, time travel, historical fiction, etc. It is a completely realistic. But, she was so insistent that I promised I would read it.

I couldn't have been more wrong. This book was so amazing. I read it in one day. I love the Beatles, but I don't know nearly as much about them as I should. I really loved all the references to them. One

Awww la verdad es que me ha gustado mucho el libro, no es tan largo y es fácil de leer. Ya había leído otro libro de esta autora y también en él me encantó su manera de escribir, ligera y sencilla.

No me demoré nada en leerlo pero hay algo que no me gustó del tofo:e l odio de la protagonista hacia los chicos y el decidir que no iba a salir con ninguno solo por el simple hecho de que uno le hizo daño. Osea, entiendo el dolor y lo que se puede sentir cuando te lastiman pero eso me pareció un

Me encantó Penny Lane, adoré a Tracy y amé a Ryan. Un libro bien adolescente, simple, sencillo, naif, divertido, sin grandes problemas y a mi me sirvió para relajar un poco.

Le doy esa estrella sólo para no dejarlo con CERO, pero si fuera por mí lo dejaría con un cero redondito. la protagonista es dramática a más no poder, generaliza un montón y cree que los chicos con el anticristo básicamente porque no ve el inmenso mundo que hay entre: "Desvalorizarse por ellos" y "No salir nunca con chicos"

Warning: This book got a recommendation from Stephanie Meyer.

Actually this book gets bigger problems than having the honor to be recommended by Stephanie Meyer (Can anything else be more like a Kiss of Death for a self respecting author?) I am going to mention a few reasons why I can't enjoy The Lonely Hearts Club like I did Eulberg's other book: Prom and Prejudice.

But first let's get to the good parts: I like how Penny Lane's friends manage to gain some maturity as the story progresses---but s

Ha sido ahora mismo, mientras estaba buscando información sobre este libro para hacer su reseña, cuando he descubierto que tendría una segunda parte. La veo totalmente innecesaria, pero oye, mientras sea la mitad de divertida, amena y fresca que esta primera, yo estaré encantada de leerla -aunque hay que esperar a que la saquen en inglés y luego cruzar los dedos para que la editorial decida que es buen idea sacarla en español...-.

I'm sorry but this book is bad. Just because it comes from a place where the idea is cute, doesn't mean the author wrote it well. As soon as I read "What to the Evs" I knew I was in for it. The cover is cute and the idea of a Lonely Hearts Club is cute, but the Beatle references were bad. They were so forced. I get that she grew up on the The Beatles, but she acted like that was the only music she could ever stand to listen to. I doubt a teenager is going to be like that, especially if their par ...more

One word - Awh!

The Lonely Hearts Club was just what I needed. Sure, it wasn't the most amazing book I've read in terms of action and plot complexity - perhaps not my usual type for a 5 star rating, but it was just... I don't know, all I know is loved it.

It was filled with laugh-out-loud moments, the characters were witty and so easy to love (go Tracy!), and i found the emotions to be very relatable. It had a great message for younger and older girls alike, about loving who you are and not chang

“No podía evitar preguntarme por qué un chico conseguía encontrar dos chicas estupendas con las que salir simultáneamente, cuando nosotras las chicas no éramos capaces de encontrar un solo chico pasable.”

Penny Lane Bloom, amante del grupo Los Beatles, de dieciséis años y ya está cansada del trato de los chicos, decide no volver a tener novios mientras esté en la preparatoria y forma el Club de los corazones solitarios.

Aunque es un libro para adolescentes no deja de ser interesante en el sentido

Initial Impressions 6/14/17 and full review as originally posted HERE on The Book Addict's Guide 8/21/17: This book was very cute! I’ve really enjoyed all of Elizabeth Eulberg’s books, some more than others, so I knew I would enjoy THE LONELY HEARTS CLUB pretty much no matter what! It turned out not to be my favorite of Elizabeth Eulberg’s, since I think she’s had some deeper stories and cuter romances, but she just has such a fun voice that makes her books so easy to read!

I loved every bit of this book! I didn't even realize that I was about to finish it!

First, I so love the main character, Penny Lane. She's just a typical high school girl going on a typical high school life. She wasn't special or anything. Just ordinary. But then made an extraordinary leap in her life by starting up a club, the 'Lonely Hearts Club.' She was actually inspired by the bunch of guys who didn't treat her well, especially her supposed 'man of her dreams.'

At first the club was just ab

Hola, mi frágil corazoncito se ha visto seriamente afectado por este libro.
No es el típico libro de romance (a pesar de que tiene una historia de amor preciosa), es más que eso, trata de la amistad, de cómo crear lazos, de cómo consolidarlos, de los importantes que son los amigos y de lo mucho que debemos cuidarlos. Y también de cómo debes encontrarte a ti mismo y aceptarte tal y como eres. Eres increíble, no tienes por qué cambiar por nadie.

Este libro me encanto! Transmite el valor de la amistad, de ser fiel a uno mismo y no cambiar por nadie.
Al principio el odio de Penny por los chicos era exagerado y molesto, solo porque un chico le rompió el corazón ya todos era demonios. Diane fue el personaje que mas evoluciono en el libro, comenzó a ser ella misma y no dejarse llevar por las opiniones de los demás. Tracy y los papás de Penny los personajes mas graciosos. Creo que no era necesaria la historia de amor entre Penny y Ryan.

This is one of those cases where I like the idea of the book in general, but once I sit down and read it, the course bugs me. A lot. I enjoyed parts of it, but the characterization and plotting are too problematic to ignore.

For the baby step that the premise takes forward—high school girls taking the time to reevaluate and spend on themselves instead of getting and keeping boyfriends; I can swing with this—it takes two humongous steps back past where we started. Every girl in this book ends up b
