    1. Jo Waldman is a spoiled young woman that just had her hearth broken. After one night of drinking, she wakes up and finds out that she went online, and wrote a lot of stuff about what she really thought about love and how she had her heart broken. What she didn’t know was that thousands of people started to answer to her blog entry and, the start a new online sensation: The Lonely Hearts ClubI loved the writing and I loved Jo, she wasn’t so strong like she wanted to be, but I thought that’s [...]

    2. Check out the full review at Kritters RamblingsJo is a daughter who has received quite a bit of help from her parents and at the time where the story begins her father is ready to cut the strings and have her try to live on her own. At the same time she has a boyfriend who wants other things in life - namely not her and her job situation is quite poor, so Jo must work on all areas in this book and hopefully come out on top!First, I love that love wasn't the only speed bump in Jo's road of life - [...]

    3. Wow, just WOW. Janowitz writes what a breakup feels like at the coree pain, the sadness and the disbelief. But she does so with a main female character that is both strong and weak, determined and disheartened, wonderful and flawed. Janowitz captured ans fleshed out a great lead that did not need to be a damsel in distress, but a woman out to turn things around on her own accord. Rock on Janowitz, rock on!!!! 5 stars

    4. When Brenda Janowitz sent me an emailing, eniquiring whether I would like to review her new book The Lonely Hearts Club, I was quite thrilled. I’ve not read any of Janowitz’s previous books (a big error, I now admit, as she’s a super talented writer – I think I may have to buy her other three novels) so this was to be the first taste of her writing I would get, and I loved the sound of the book. I love books set around the music-industry. I’m not a mega music fan, I listen to music on [...]

    5. I'm usually not one to fall for a story in which music plays a big part. It's not that I don't enjoy music; I just can't relate to it the way the characters do, so I can't always get into the story. This one I made an exception for, though, since the whole online mistake was mortifying, hilarious, and definitely an interesting twist.With a few too many drinks under her belt, Jo decides to vent her frustrations in writing. But the writing she does is on a blog, and while she doesn't mean to publi [...]

    6. Review Originally Posted:Traveling With TThis book was sent to Traveling With T in exchange for a fair review.The Lonely Hearts ClubTo Jo Waldman, music is life.

    7. I have to admit, I didn't read the synopsis before getting into this one out of fear that it would spoil the book for me. I read it after finishing the story and I realize it was good I steered away because it does give away some factors of the plot. Anyhoo, from the cover, I deemed The Lonely Hearts Club to be about a girl trying to make it in music, more specifically as an indie rocker who refuses to conform or sellout. I wasn't far off, but there were certainly a lot more offered in the story [...]

    8. 3.75 stars.Review originally posted on Rather Be Reading BlogThe Lonely Hearts Club, a new NA novel from Brenda Janowitz, really kicks into gear when the main character, Jo, blogs about how love is a total sham. Her boyfriend has just broken up with her after she’s loaned him money and let him live in her dad’s loft for free. (Truth: she’s living there for free too.) And she’s pissed off. So she does what any person would do after drinking solo on a Valentine’s Day and telling off the [...]

    9. One of the morals of this story is “Don’t drink and blog--unless you want to turn your life around”. First Jo Waldman gets fired--by her own father. Then “dear old dad” takes both her car and her downtown Manhattan apartment away--until she can afford them with her own money. Last, but definitely not least, Jo’s boyfriend dumps her. In a drunken rage she puts up a blog post on her old band’s website, letting her hatred of all things related to “love” spill out all over the inte [...]

    10. Based on her first two books, I wasn't expecting this to be quite such a 'new adults' category book. I did find myself resenting the heroine for having everything a bit too easy in life. Even her worst times are fairly easy in that luck finds her, money finds her, fame finds her, love funds her nearly instantly and far more easily than it does for most people. On the other hand, it's a sweet book and I loved the ending. Definitely two of the best parents I've seen in fiction in years, dorky, emb [...]

    11. This is such a wonderful book for young adults to read. There is a little bit of boy drama, but the focus is on girl friends. I really like how the girls in this book put their friends before boys. The theme in this book of not changing for other people - friends or boys is awesome! They also discovered what they wanted to do as individuals - not following the crowd. It was such a good example of independent girls supporting each other - not talking behind each others back.I enjoyed this book an [...]

    12. Overall I liked the book. The short chapters titled with song lyrics and song titles weaved the music theme into the story very well. The main character was likable. Her inability to move on from past experiences / tragedies made her story believable, since many of us have experienced something in our lives that freeze us to the moment if only for a little while. The way she rebounds is a little far fetched, but that's the beauty of immersing ourselves into a well written story.

    13. I received a free copy of this book from Giveaway.My honest unbiased review is as followed.I loved this book. It was amazing. Funny, real, and full of heart. It shows that even when you lose it all, your significant other, your comfortable life style, that it doesn't have to be the end. You can turn your own fate around. But, with all things in life, it can also be lost. Never take anything, or anyone, for granted.I recommend this to anyone and everyone ♡♡

    14. - 10 starsWhat a hot mess of a book- I don't even know where to start. Jo is a spoiled brat who doesn't appreciate how well she actually has it. The angst in this book is so contrived and needless but at the same time weak and ineffective. The characters in this book are so one dimensional and their actions don't make any sense. I didn't care about what happens to any of them. I am so glad I got this book for free from .

    15. A cute, quick read. I just may be getting a little old for chick lit about a fairly aimless 22 year old.

    16. Another easy read. A cute story. Again, this would be a good Hallmark movie. Nothing too special but somewhat entertaining.

    17. A fast moving fun read!I thoroughly enjoyed reading "The Lonely Hearts Club." It's warm. well written and clever, a good spirit lifter! Definitely recommend.
