    Ninety percent of their sentences begin with My boyfriend My boyfriend has the most adorable golden retriever My boyfriend is taking his driving test next week, and he s been practicing like a maniac The girls humor me with smiles, then continue their deep conversation It s a biological compulsion.This book is a teenaged boy s wet dream, in which girls are predictably stupid, in a school where every single girl is desperate for a boyfriend because of a low male to female ratio.There is this thin [...]

    See reviews at YA Midnight Reads3.5 starsI was rather dubious about The Break Up Artist at first I do love a cute and fun contemporary occasionally, but many of the ones I have read were rather forgettable and bland But I was wrong this time The Break Up Artist possesses just the right balance of humour, adorableness and emotional quality.Becca is The Break Up Artist She breaks up couples upon her customers request for one hundred dollars via PayPal But no one knows that it s her behind the rac [...]

    I totally blame Zemira for this one Some of you may know her, but for those who don t Zemira is Tanja s and my soul mate and BFF you can find her and her review on YA Fanatic and we automatically buy all books she tells us to read But with The Break Up Artist something went wrong She loved it, I didn t.Why I didn t enjoy The Break Up Artist Boyfriend drama Basically, every single female character thinks that their measure of success in life is having a boyfriend Or a husband Or boyfriend who wil [...]

    That was actually pretty funny and entertaining and I would highly recommend it to just everybody who wants to read a charming, humorously written and superbly plotted YA novel with several parallel storylines that fit together and complement each other perfectly There is a wonderful mix of complications in Becca s life her older sister sulks at home because her fianc left her standing by the altar, her best friend Val falls for the wrong guy, breaking up the homecoming king and queen proves di [...]

    This book, y all Short story It was SO GOOD Slightly longer story It was seriously SO GOOD Readers are going to fall in love with Becca She s smart and cunning and funny and pretty much the perfect YA heroine Even when she s doing some pretty unsavoury things, Becca is just so real and relatable and funny, did I mention funny that you can t help feeling a kinship with her and rooting her along on her crazy adventures If you re looking for a fun, fast paced, funny read, you won t want to miss thi [...]

    Well hello there, Ms Break Up Artist I want to have your carrier or at least see what it feels like to be wicked When I first heard about this book I was immediately interested Who doesn t want to read about someone breaking up couples for money For me it just screams Let s be bad together and Pick me Pick me And the hipster ish cover looks great The best thing about this books was the MC I don t usually relate to characters and when I do I can t help but to fall in love with the story Becca s t [...]

    I really don t know how to feel about this story It was an okay read but I m real iffy about the main character.Summary Becca Williamson is the break up artist Unlike most teenagers her after school job is to break up couples Why you ask, well she says it s because there s no such thing as love and everyone is brainwashed but I just believe she s jealous She had one friend who turned on her when she got a boyfriend and now she has a new friend that s doing the same thing But to add on to her cra [...]

    I somehow expected SO MUCH MORE from this book UUGHHH and it could ve been soooo good, if only the author TRULY understood how teenage girls thinkThe thing about this book is, the story, the idea is amazing but how it turned out was not.There was this point of the book were I had already resigned to not like the MC and I was like whatever, be a stupid egocentric bitch, maybe the author intended to make you this annoying and pathetic, maybe not but then I saw this, and I almost threw my ipad from [...]

    So here s my best shot at reviewing a book that I fell in love with It s not out till May, so hopefully I can refine this a bit by then But I had to write down my thoughts because I ADORED this book I hate to get all cliche y, but I keep coming back to the phrase This book DELIVERS but it DOES It was so fun to read a book that was exactly what I hoped it would be Read the description and you ll expect a hilariously charming story about a girl on a mission to break up couples The characters were [...]

    Because obviously

    Alert High school drama Dual rating 1 and 4 I really hope this book is a piss take parody at a teenager s life because that s the angle I chose to read it Something like Nothing is definitive than lunchroom seating is just way over the line shallow and unimportant Do these things actually happen Yes Well, then stop advertising it any Haha For me, there is really two ways to read this book 1 You read this and take every word as it is written down and treat it like a reality TV show of Beverly H [...]

    There are just some books that you know are going to piss you off just by the summary I had a nagging feeling that this would be one of those and I was right I was most certainly right The summary wasn t wasn t even my only warning flag, honestly The moment I saw that this book was written by a guy I should have run as fast as I could but I didn t and now, at least, I have the chance to warn you before you read the book.Becca Williamson destroys relationships for a living People honestly fire he [...]

    A friend gave me this book in exchange for a review not the author.The Break Up Artist by Philip Siegel stars Becca, who has started a business in breaking up couples that have no reason to be together or at least that s what she tells herself when she gets the cash It doesn t help that her sister was jilted at the altar But with any YA high school contemp, you can be sure that this starts getting and complicated, with hurt feelings and other issues getting in the way Will Becca fall prey to t [...]

    This book was fun in all its absurd glory I had a hard time getting into it at first though because I find the whole idea of breaking people up downright ridiculous Not to mention the fact that her school constitutes students who are in a relationship Almost every freaking student seems to have a boyfriend or a girlfriend, talks about their boyfriend or girlfriend all the time, and totally hitting the PDA mark in front of teachers I am in high school and yes, relationships tend to happen a lot b [...]

    Originally posted at Stay BookishThe Break Up Artist caught my attention even before I read it The mere title had me intrigued and excited Pre reading, I already thought that the concept was very clever but only when I immersed myself in this noteworthy story did I discover exactly how fantastically clever and awesome this book was.The main character, Becca, breaks up couples for a hundred dollars via Paypal She plans elaborate schemes in secret and she does her task well When she s asked to bre [...]


    Mike Zemelko

    The Break Up Artist is an amazing book From catty high school shenanigans to touching family moments, this is a very well rounded read capturing the dynamics between friendship, love, and family Becca s internal monologue was the best part and delivered the book s best zings Becca needs a one woman show


    Jana (The Booksnob)

    After reading a series of really depressing books for the past one week, this book was so refreshing This was a quick, fun read If you are ready to throw logic out the window, and accept coincidental situations, then this book is for you.

    For reviews and giveaways, go to reviewsfromabookworm.This was an interesting book, and one that I find really hard to review For every part of it that I really enjoyed, there was a part that I really didn t enjoy By the end of the book, I found it really hard to sum up exactly how I feel about the book overall I think my feelings are pretty underwhelming, much like the book I found the premise of this really interesting, someone who makes a living from breaking up couples I was curious to see [...]


    Maggie

    The Break Up Artist was one of my most anticipated books of 2014 and sadly it just did not live up to my expectations, at all The entire time I was reading I was outlining my issues with the book in my head, but I kept telling myself that if it ended in a certain way it would make up for everything I didn t like along the way, but sadly that didn t happen.Maybe I m crazy, but I thought the concept of a girl running a business that breaks couples up would be funny, not sad I do think that Philip [...]


    Jeann (Happy Indulgence)

    This review originally appeared on Happy Indulgence Check it out for reviews.How many books do we see centered on couples getting together and romance, resulting in eye rolling corny scenes and cliche lines Becca totally feels our pain, so she spends her spare time breaking up the cheesy couples at her school for some cash.The Break Up Artist opened with a lot of potential, Becca started out to be a really hilarious, sarcastic character that is sick of the couple territory at her school There i [...]

    Let s not beat around the bush, as it won t help anyone The thing is, this book was not for me.It is not a bad book, it s just that it didn t sit well with the other contemporary stories I ve read lately and I ve enjoyed so much I ve imagined something opposite from Hitch the movie as a side note I didn t even know there was a The Breakup Artist movie, but there it is, from 2009 with a YA background and lots of fun, but something was missing and I am not sure if I can put my finger on it to act [...]

    More reviews at Mrs ReaderPants.IF THIS BOOK WERE FOOD, IT WOULD BE low sugar brownies it looks better than it tastesWHAT I LIKED Not much The premise is cool, and I like the front cover There are several awkward high school moments best friend makes out with boyfriend in front of Becca, deciding where to sit in the cafeteria after a fight with best friend, faking illness to avoid confrontation at school that many readers will identify with WHAT I DIDN T LIKE The characters These are really some [...]


    Brandi Kosiner (Brandi Breathes Books)

    The Break Up Artist came on my radar when I saw it for review on Netgalley I liked the premise, and even though I knew that the main character, Becca would probably undergo a crazy transformation on her views of dating and love.Sure enough, at first, Becca was very jaded She scoffed at PDA, and she felt a solidarity with her other single friend Val She d lost her best friend from earlier in life when she dated a new guy quarterback and her popularity skyrocketed, and on top of that Becca s siste [...]

    Becca provides a unique service at her school she breaks up couples for 100 via PayPal She calls herself The Break Up Artist, and is always there to help girls get their best friends back after they re ditched for boys or popularity.There are two reasons that Becca has such a toxic view of relationships The first is that her best friend Huxley ditched her to go out with a quarterback and become the most popular girl in school, and the second is that her sister Diane was dumped on her wedding day [...]


    Mariko (The Storybook Kingdom)

    A copy of this book was provided by the author via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review This review is also posted on The Storybook KingdomSo my thoughts on The Break Up Artist So much bitterness with a side helping of catty Maybe I didn t fully prepare myself before I starting reading this book, but I was taken aback by how these girls acted Maybe my memories of high school have gotten fuzzy as I ve gotten older, but are there really people out there like this in high school Ok, I knew th [...]


    Kim at Divergent Gryffindor

    The Break Up Artist was compelling from the well written synopsis to the pretty cover, so when I saw it on Netgalley, I immediately requested it, and I was ecstatic when I got approved I mean, who wouldn t, right The synopsis talks about a book that is both promising and original, and I couldn t want to read it The Break Up Artist started out really great, with snark comments and originality that kept me amused, but as I read on, I started to feel like it was getting old, boring, and contradicti [...]


    Elizabeth Curington

    This book had some fun, quirky moments, but I feel it was ultimately forgettable I don t think I will remember a single character s name after tomorrow and the plot will be fuzzy in a week It just didn t give me something new and exciting.I liked the idea of an enterprising student breaking couples up for money I just didn t like Becca much She was so cynical and took everyone s reasons for doing things at face value Very annoying And she let herself be manipulated into a corner without ever res [...]
