Review: Paper Hearts by Ali Novak

Paper Hearts
By: Ali Novak
Release Date:
Series: The Heartbreakers Chronicles #2


“When I met Alec Williams, I nearly fainted. Totally embarrassing, but how often does a regular girl get to meet a famous heartthrob?”

Felicity has been living in the shadow of her best friend Lucy since they were kids. But things change when she is introduced to a quiet guy named Alec. At first Felicity is intimidated by his fame, but as the two grow closer she starts to realize that Alec just might be the guy of her dreams. No other guy has ever made her feel so alive. 

The only problem? Lucy has different plans for Alec—plans that start with prom. 

Felicity quickly realizes that she will have to make a decision. Will she choose her best friend who has always been there for her, or the mysterious boy that she can't stop thinking about? Whatever her choice, someone is going to be left broken hearted.

Meet... The Queen of Hearts.

This was a very sweet book, great addition to this series.  Finding out more about the other band members is always a wonderful thing.  Ali Novak is doing a great job bringing this series to life.

We meet Felicity, who is a very dedicated person trying to get through her plan for life without any hiccups, but then she discovers the truth about something and all that goes out the window.  Her sister has been missing for a while and with the help of Alec, a member of the heartbreakers, and oh so scrumptious of a person she’s on a mission to find her.  Also included are her best friends Asha and Boomer.

Alec is a very serious and private person, I guess you can say he’s like the shy one in the group if you had to stereotype him, he’s very serious.  But with Felicity it’s like he wants to let himself go.  Get out from under the thumb of people around him.  The two main characters definitely have some familiar struggles just in different ways, but struggles none the less.  The two help each other overcome these struggles in life and with the freedom they both desired, or didn’t even know they desired.

I thought this book was really good, not as much as the first one but still good in its own right.  You can definitely read it as a stand-alone but it’s good to see the other characters from the first book blossom throughout the book or more like how they have blossomed since the first book.  I really enjoyed the book overall.  I was definitely interested in what would happen between Felicity and Alec, and was quite surprised with a few other characters in the book.

I will say that I am now interested in researching more origami especially the hearts, just sounded so cute in the book that I had to look it up and try it myself.  Another great thing about this book were all the great locations mentioned throughout, it’s always fun when there is a road trip involved.  Check the book out, it’s a good quick fun easy read.  Can’t wait for the next one in the series.  


I received this book from NetGalley and Sourcebooks Fire, so that I may give my honest opinion and a review. Whether it is good or not please do not let it discourage you from purchasing/reading the book yourself and forming your own opinion. What might be good for me may not be good for you and vice versa. With that said, Happy Reading Everyone!!!
