It was boring, bland, and everything I don't want in a book. The writing style was so amateur it did not read like a published book and the characters were not developed, they were just given names and bodies and the reader is magically supposed to like them even though they are not memorable. The main character ONLY thinks about boys. BOYS BOYS BOYS. That's all that runs through her mind and it was so bothersome to read. This book was repetitive and brought nothing ne ...more
Hot British Boyfriend is a Young Adult Contemporary Romance. The narrator is high school student Ellie/Elle (1st person POV).
The story starts in Washington, DC. Something happens to Ellie that changes things in her life.
Her school is doing a study abroad trip to England. But it's only for honor students.
There was so much to like about this book. I just loved the friend group that Ellie made (Dev, Sage and Huan). And the whole ...more
After embarrassing herself in epic proportions at her crush's birthday party, Ellie Nichols will do anything to get away from the whole incident, and forget that the person she thought was her friend, is now dating the guy she fancied. Because Crystal dropped out of the prestigious study abroad trip to England, there's a free space, and she begs her mam to let her join up. Okay, the trip is rea ...more
This was such an adorable, fluffy story! I truly enjoyed this book. Travel, England, tea and scones, fairy gardens, shopping, and hot British boys? Yes, please!
Ellie has an awful public rejection by the boy she’s been crushing on, and it gets posted to Instagram for the whole world to see. She feels utterly humiliated, and doesn’t know how she’s going to face everyone at school. She finds out that there’s a la ...more
Diversity: Indian-American main character, gay main character.
It's like a 3,5 stars. I'm a bit conflicted about that one. Like I expected from the synopsis, I found this entertaining and fun and very rom-com, so no disappointment there. I enjoyed the travel and friendships in this book, but I expected a bit more from the main character, she felt a little superficial to me for most of the book, unfortunately ...more
I was so excited for this one, so it hurts me to have to DNF it. The characters are all so bland and there’s not enough character development to keep me interested. Will is literally just a hot British boyfriend--that’s it. I also don’t like Ellie enough to care about how she might learn from her mistakes later on in the book. This book feels very MG to me, and I just wish there was more depth to it. Unfortunately, this one is a miss for me.
Ellie lives in Washington D.C. and attends an elite school, even though the tuition is a stretch for her single mother. She and her friend Crystal work at a smoothie shop, and Ellie is super excited to be going to the birthday party of Andy, a schoolmate and customer on whom she has a big crush. She thinks that he feels the same way, so when he starts a big announcement, she assumes it is directed at her. She is wrong, and the resultant social fallout is cruel. Th ...more
Ellie endures an extremely embarrassing public rejection at a party that is caught on film. Not only is that video circulating, but the boy she is crushing on and the friend she thought to be there for her are now posting cute couple photos. It is enough to make Ellie fly to Europe. Considering this girl she thought was her ...more
Before doing anything else I just think that Will...😍Ok hear me out, he loves cricket (my all time favourite sport to follow I'm obsessed), he went to Harrow (I live near there), and his dad wanted him to go to UCL (I studied there)!
Soo to get into the review, this book came at the perfect time for me. I'm in the middle of reading an epic fantasy series, and a cute YA rom-com was exactly what I needed for a bit of a change!
** I received this as an E-ARC from Edelweiss plus and the publisher in exchange for my honest review, Thank you!**
I had a blast reading this book. It was fun, adventurous, and included travel! Now I will say the adult part of me wanted to caution some of the decisions of the main characters, but my teen self was was cheering her on. I had to laugh at how our main character is in love with the British accent because... well same. The beginning of the book did Kinda give me second-hand ...more
This really called to the fluffy reader in me. It started off with a big OTT teen rom-com moment, which had me feeling quite empathetic towards Ellie. I know the book was called HOT BRITISH BOYFRIEND, but it was friendships she developed abroad which really won my heart.

A huge thank you to NetGalley and HarperTeen for sending me an A-ARC for an honest review.
I was super excited to read this book. The synopsis sounded so cute, and I always love a good YA Contemporary Romance. I did end up liking this book, especially the last half of the book, but I didn't really love it. I didn't love our main character, Ellie, but I did like seeing her grow as a person throughout the book. I also really enjoyed all of the side characters in this book and the romanc ...more
I really really liked this book. The love story was unbearably sweet and I suddenly wish I could just go to the English country side to study for a bit.
Ellie is a lovely character. I didn't immediately connect with her and I am pretty sure I would not be friends with her would I know her IRL, but the more I learned about her the more endearing she became. The fact that Ellie has a bit of an unusual hobby and can be ...more
When I was a teenager in the 1980s, one of my favorite books was Beverly Cleary's The Luckiest Girl, written in 1958. Shelly spent a semester in California, made new friends, gained confidence in her intelligence, visited new place and tried new foods, dated the popular boy, and eventually realized the smart one was "the boy she came ...more
From the title, this book made me a bit wary. It sounded like it'd be the kind of cheesy that would lean towards cringey for me. But, the cover and synopsis completely changed my thought process. The cover is ADORABLE. It's brilliantly smart. The characters hanging out on a teacup? Amazing. Plus, the synopsis made it sound hilarious and adorable. A girl flees the country, for a travel abroad program, to escape her embarrassment and hopefully find comfort in the arms of a British bo ...more
More reviews (and no fluff) on the blog http://surrealtalvi.wordpress.com/The title 'Hot British Boyfriend' is your best indicator of what you will find here: girl obsessed with boys, harmless romances, somewhat simplified relationships and friendships, and some travel thrown in. No, it's not inventive and certainly not very deep. So yes, it's a Twinkie - sweet but not very satisfying. Something you can read and then promptly forget afterwards. But there is an appeal in that as well.
My students are the same age as the first-person narrator Ellie, dual credit college-bound seniors. Boyce realistically captures the three states of being in that age. Many of the supporting characters who study abroad with the narrator are the driven young adults who already know who they are and have A PLAN. Most of the narrator's friends when we firs ...more
Coming to a new school can be rough... especially when the only friend you've made winds up ditching you after you make a terrible, mortifying mistake and basically become a social pariah. Then it's really rough. Leaving the country might be dramatic, but it's also probably the best chance Ellie has to escape the ridicule and the complete horror of having to see her ex-friend and her ex-crush together. Now Ellie is allowed to be El- older, more worldly, and datin ...more
When she’s not spending time with her husband and son, she’s usually writing, reading, putting together fairy gardens, or watching happy reality TV (The Great British Bake-Off and So You Think You Can Dance are perennial favorites).
