The Pursuit of Miss Heartbreak Hotel Reviews

  • Chelsea

    This is going to be such a weird thing to say, but sometimes, when a book really gets me in the heart, I feel it all the way to my fingertips. Like a literal sensation in my hands. That happened with this book. The writing style won’t be for everyone, but I loved it. I rarely see young adult novels playing with language this way.

    Happy book birthday and huge thanks to NetGalley and Henry Holt and Co. for the advance review copy.

    Happy book birthday and huge thanks to NetGalley and Henry Holt and Co. for the advance review copy.

    Lucy “Lu” Butler and Eve used to be best friends, that is until Eve got super hot and ditched Lu for the “Pretty Pennies” of the school. After a chance encounter in the girls’ bathroom senior year during Eve’s pregnancy scare, the two slowly start to reconnect, and Lu realizes that her feelings for Eve may be more than platonic. In addition to gradation stresses, Lu is facing the potential death of a beloved grandparent and conflicting emotions about Eve.

    The most distinctive thing about this book is its language. Lu and her peers have a language all their own that is a cross between 50s, 80s, and modern, teen slang. I absolutely loved it! I had to take a little more time here and there with a few phrases, but overall, it was easy to understand and gave the book a strong perspective and a great point-of-view.

    I was a fan of the characters as well. Lu goes through a lot in just a few months, and she grows so much during that time. I loved her and Eve’s budding relationship, and Lu’s BFFs would be great friends to have. I definitely recommend this one if you’re a fan of contemporary YA. No fantasy or sci-fi to be had here, just pretty solid characters, normal teenage drama but with a lot of heart. The pub date is well-timed; this is the perfect summer read.

    This one is out today, so be sure to check it out from your local library or pick up a copy from your fav, local bookseller.

  • Emi

    3.5 stars. The story was good (queer girl drama/romance = yaaaass!), but I found the language and slang difficult to follow at times.

  • Brian

    An okay book, ruined by the fact that the story is told in an incomprehensible author-invented slang. I honestly had a difficult time understanding it.

  • Jackie

    The only reason I’m rating this book a 2 is because it kept me intrigued as to what would happen between Lu and Eve but I could not get past the language in this book. I had no idea what time period this was in or what was going on most of the time but I am happy they ended up together in the end

  • Chelsea (chelseadolling reads)

    I tried to give this the benefit of the doubt because I always want to support books about queer girls, but this was quite possibly my least favorite book of the year? The writing was just... not great. Ugh.

    YEAHHH GIVE ME THAT GOOD TROPE

  • mahana

    I can't get past the third chapter. I just can't. The writing is like a pretentious "hip" 60-year-old trying desperately hard to get down with the kids.

    I don't care if this book is sapphic, I can't fucking continue.

    The writing just wasn't working for me.
