The Museum of Heartbreak by Meg Leder

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A fun read! This is the 1st contemporary novel that I’ve picked up in a long while. Just gobbled it up!

A teen book about responding to change, friendships, heartbreaks, love and making up broken relationships.

There’s a slightly more realistic depiction of teenagers injected in this story that I appreciate. Not a perfect story(I couldn’t commend certain things that Eph did, it’s up to you if you want to write it up as just a ‘realistic’ element or not. Many other small things in the novel irked me, too, like how you could tell things were heading to a trainwreck.) but the tug-of-war between holding on or letting go of the old life was nicely done and that makes this book sit a little higher amongst others.

Would be interested to read her other works 😀 Also, the book succeeded in getting a few laughs out of me.

(Read this for free on Riveted. Thanks, you guys! P.S. Not an ARC.)

    1. I saw your goodreads review, looks like you read both the books I did on Riveted! This one FINALLY got me back into the contemporary genre(I thought I outgrew it, thought it was just a teen romance phase :P). It’s funny how many of these formulaic books you can read, and you WANT that predictable up-and-down-until-a-happy-ending thing.

      I think it can only be read online…which is kinda annoying.
