    One thought on “Paper Hearts

    1. Annie G

      After reading all the other reviews on this book, I've decided to write one myself. All the other reviewers seemed to have a hard time relating to the narrator, Michelle, because she was too brusque and angry for them. I feel like that was my favorite part about her. It was very refreshing to read from a narrator's point of view that didn't have it all together.I know that all of us readers aren't happy go lucky every second of everyday, and our book characters shouldn't have to be that way eith [...]

      3.5 stars. I was excited to win a copy of Paper Hearts through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers Program. Michelle Pearce is an angry teen who has built a wall around herself to insulate her from life's pain. She has a rocky relationship with her mostly absent mother and no friends. While working part time at a convenience store Michelle meets Nathaniel who is her antithesis, positive, upbeat and kind to others although life hasn't dealt him an easy hand. When Nathaniel drops by to apply for a jo [...]

      This book proves that there is good and bad in the world and crap happensat being said there is also good and this book shows the contrast very well

      3.5 stars!I started out hating this book because of Michelle. I couldn’t fall in love with the story because she was there being a selfish, rude, immature, bitch.And there is a story to love here. Paper Hearts deals with many issues that are tough to swallow. From bullying to rape, Michelle goes through some shit. And she deals with it all in the wrong way.She puts this wall of bullshit up. A wall built on ignoring all authority figures. Mouthing off to people who are only trying to help her. [...]

      openbooksociety/article/paBrought to you by OBS reviewer AndraSpoilers Whew….Emotional read. What I liked and also disliked is the hard life Michelle had. As a parent myself, I can’t believe a parent would let their child be bullied as Michelle was. I felt horrified that Michelle’s mother did not stand up for Michelle nor believe Michelle when as a young girl (age 6), she told her mother what the boyfriend did to her. But that is just me. As well, I do realize in life that not everyone is [...]

      I'm finding it very hard to start this review. Not because I don't know what to say, but because I have so much to say I don't know where to start. Michelle hasn't exactly had an easy time growing up. Her father was an alcoholic, parents divorced, and her family had been toeing the line of poverty until her grandparents died and left them some money and their house. She is bullied at school, where she does not have any friends and pushes those away who try to help.I found it hard to connect with [...]

    7. Michael

      I found the first couple of pages difficult to read and thought I was in for a hard time but as soon as I realised that I was hearing the voice of a alienated, disillusioned and angry young woman I understood it completely captures Michelle's decision to withdraw from society through the language which she uses both to herself and in her conversations with others. The short sentences, the terse replies fit exactly with the thoughts of her character. But it's experience that has mad Michelle hard [...]

      Michelle Pearce doesn’t have time for people because she has learned, time and time again, they aren’t worth her time or effort. Until Nathaniel. Michelle meets Nathaniel at her job when he comes in looking for the owner. When Michelle finally lets Nathaniel in, they become the best of friends – more alike than either realize at first. When Michelle’s life crumbles around her, Nathaniel is there to try to show her there is some good in the worldPER HEARTS is not a book for the faint of h [...]

      I enjoyed reading this book.The summary had me sucked right in. Teen angst is a great thing and S.R. Savell writes it like a pro.The characters are great. Michelle was a tad hard to like at first. She is rough around the edges. We learn that she is an unreliable narrator (hint, hint).Nathaniel is amazing. I was expecting him to be supernatural or something because of his size and his presence. I almost wish some of the chapters were from his point of view. Michelle sums Nate up nicely: "You're l [...]

    10. Wall-to-wall books - wendy

      I have to start with a disclaimer before I start ragging on this book - The copy I read was an uncorrected proof Sooo hopefully it is going to be much better before the actual book is for sale.I really wanted to like this book (and I did like it) but it was so hard to read with so many errors. There were whole parts of the book that were repeated (I think they were meant to be taken out but weren't yet) and the timeline was screwed up due to leaving the double parts in. This just made it so hard [...]

      I was excited to receive this book after winning it on . I enjoyed it and thought it was very well written. I found the character of Michelle realistic. She was snarky enough to grasp that she was kind of annoying to deal with, but I still liked her. I loved the Grandma and wish there was a few more interactions between her and Michelle. Nathaniel is a great guy and I liked the relationship between him and Michelle.

    12. Brittany

      The writing of this book is quite spectacular. What kept it from a five is that the pacing dragged in a few spots and it did seem a bit surreal and overly dramatic at times.However, I adore Nathaniel. He's so utterly selfless and pure of heart. He holds the broken pieces of his life and love together with such a patient tone. The ugly reality of this story is also what makes it endearing. Such a unique book.

    13. Kylie

      Glad I gave this book a chance. It was a random that I chose because of the cover and the name sounded interesting. Didn't like Michelle to start with but I'm pretty sure I wasn't meant to. By the end she had me, a great book with a couple of characters who are hard not to love.

    14. Kim Piddington

      I struggled from page one to understand, and like, the caustic narrator. Got a jolt in Chapter 13.However, the author has a serious command of language and the narrator gets a puppy in the end.

    15. Jamie Lynn Bowker

      It started out great! I couldn't put it downBut all of a sudden I was rereading words I already read a few chapters back?!?! Irritating! Ruined a good book!

    16. Jenny

      Awesome read!!! I couldn't put it down. She is so strong with so much emotion and then Nathaniel comes along and sews her life back together in the sweetest way.

    17. Dayna

      I feel that this book would be great for teenagers. I did enjoy reading it, but not my type of book and I am sure if I were much younger I would of really loved it. Great for high school readers.

    18. Mason

      To state the obvious, this book was so sad. If anyone is experiencing sexual abuse or any form of abuse, I hope they find the courage to seek help.
