The only reason Lauren entered the Hashtag Hunt was for the $10,000 grand prize. She needed seed money for her startup, and it sounded easy enough: twelve hours to text twelve photos to someone called the Wizard. For hashtag number five, Lauren needs a #HottieInTheWild, and with the help of her best friend, Ivy, she finds the perfect subject.

The only reason Brenner entere

4.5 # Stars.

Kristina Seek’s debut novel The Hashtag Hunt is easily in the top ten of my most favourite books for 2019 and the year is far from over. I read the blurb and I was right on board with the whole # Hunt.

12 hours to text 12 photos to the Wizard to win $10,000.

Sounds easy right? No it isn’t actually that easy but it sure hell is a lot of fun.

Lauren decided to sign up for the competition to get her baby Paperback Vinyl going so far she’s in the run for the prize money. She’s got her best

4.5 stars. Where to start with this one? I really loved it! Not to mention that I want to participate in something like this! How much fun! Now, I'd heard of the HitW before, Hotties in the Wild, but now I'm intrigued, is there really a Facebook page for it? I need to find it! I also need to get better about taking my own pictures of HitWs if I find them. Although now that I think back on it, the ones I'm thinking of were noticed while I was working at the bookstore, where I wasn't allowed to ha ...more

This unique story captured my attention from the very beginning and held on tight. The premise of the characters running around the city using their imaginations to take pictures for a hashtag contest is new and fresh. And the fact that this book takes place over only one night adds to the speed of the story and kept me glued to the pages. This book is definitely a roller coaster ride with the urgency of the Hashtag Hunt playing alongside the swoony roma

I had an opportunity to read The Hashtag Hunt for the New England Readers' Choice Awards back in December of 2018/January 2019 and had a reread of it just a few weeks ago for this blog tour taking place right now, and if I could rate it a million stars just for captivating the audience, I would be a happy reviewer LOL THIS BOOK WAS GENIUS AND FUN!!

This debut novel blew me away! It was fast moving with humor and clever thinking by the participants. What a fun way for Lauren to be able to raise money to open her dream store of Paperback Vinyl-a retro music store complete with retro record players, tape decks, etc. The Hashtag Hunt is an organized contest where the preregistered contestants must find 12 pictures of things given to them by the Wizard. When Lauren is stuck finding a man-bun, her friend Ivy tells her where she needs to go and v ...more

The Hashtag Hunt is such a cute romance! I couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting. I have never read a book with a scavenger hunt or a contest like this, so I was really curious to see how it all played out.

Lauren has a dream to open Paperback Vinyl. She is determined to do this on her own, so when the hashtag hunt starts, she knows she needs to participate! I loved how passionate she is to get what she needs to follow her dream. To take these pictures you need to think fast a

The premise of this book is so 2019 because you either #LOVELOVELOVEhashtags or #DESPISEhashtags. There really is no in between and I happen to love them. The thought of entering a contest to win $10K by simply submitting pictures that go with a hashtag is amaze balls! It sounds like something that my friends and I would do and now I wonder if there is really an APP for this. Hold on a minute. I checked the APP store and, sadly, there is not. Kristina Seek…..you should totally create this APP!!! ...more

There are not enough words to express just how fun this book is. The Hashtag Hunt is overflowing with fantastic humor, witty banter, fun adventure and sweet romance! All of that coming together to create a story that kept me up half the night glued to the pages. I genuinely cannot remember the last time I had so much fun with a book.

This book come recommended from a family friend to check out as a read that I might like.

Lauren and her friend Ivy start out in a bar where Lauren has already sent in one of the HASHTAGS for the contest and she gets a text with her next requirement and when he walks into the bar she decides that he is the #HitW (Hottie in the Wild) and tri

I don't always gush about books, but man - I absolutely loved this one. I thought the premise was unique and I found this book witty, funny, the banter between Lauren and Brenner was so cute and Scully - oh my - he was a hoot!

So Lauren has entered a photo hashtag contest to win money to pursue her dreams. When she has to find a "Hottie in the Wild" - she snaps Brenner's photo and then the fun really begins. Even from the beginning bar scene - I knew I was goin

The Hashtag Hunt was pure "clean" fun! The hunt is an adrenaline fueled race against the clock while at the same time managing to be hilarious, sweet and swoony. Set as a scavenger hunt picture contest where one of the hunted, the "hottie in the wild" decides to help out and becomes one ofthe hunters. With no real main character, every person in the book added to the adorable chemistry and banter. I read the entire book in a few short hours and I smiled through the entire thing.

OH MY GOD! This was such an incredible read! Now I have to find more books from this author!!! Who are Ivy and Lauren? Where do we find them? What is going on with Lauren? What is she on the hunt for? Why? If she succeeds, what are her plans? I loved reading about Brenner and Scott. The 12-point buck added to the fun. Oh my gosh, this book had some unexpected surpriss and was a book that I could not or would not put down once I started. Not even to go to dinner with mom, whom I am visiting. This ...more

The Hashtag Hunt by Kristina Seek was an interesting read! I loved the blurb and found the story to be original and fun to read. Lauren has entered a hunt, the Hashtag hunt to be exact, in hopes of winning the money she needs to start her business. Sounds simple enough, right?

Lauren has twelve hours to complete the hunt, which entails obtaining the required pictures and approval before moving forward. She finds herself working with her friend, Ivy, and new friends (and maybe more) Brenner and S

I loved the idea of the plot so the blurb had me
Hooked before I’d even started reading.

12 hours to text 12 photos the to wizard to win $10,000. What could go wrong?

When looking for picture 5, Lauren and Ivy meet Brenner and Sully. The fun, the banter and the back and forth make this such a light fun read that made my heart happy.

This has to be one of the best books I've read this year. I absolutely loved it. A well paced novel that had me from the first chapter, I couldn't put it down. Please tell me there will be another hunt.

'The Hashtag Hunt' was a unique read. It was full of fun, flirty characters, who team up on an adventure that lasts just one night.

This book was so much fun to read and I found myself laughing out loud. So this sounds so easy 12 pics in 12 hours but as she makes her way through with her buddy Ivy she realizes there getting harder and harder. The banter in this book is almost priceless and will keep you guessing. The reason I took away half a star was because I felt something was missing at the end.

As Lauren embarks on a modern day scavenger hunt, her goal is to win the monetary prize for first place, but along the way she gets more than she bargained for.

From debut author Kristina Seek, this jaunty romance is chocked full of witty dialogue and clever adventure!
