coming soon: the book of broken hearts by sarah ockler

Book: The Book of Broken Hearts
Author: Sarah Ockler
Release Date: May 21, 2013
Publisher: Simon Pulse

When all signs point to heartbreak, can love still be a rule of the road? A poignant and romantic novel from the author of Bittersweet and Twenty Boy Summer.
Jude has learned a lot from her older sisters, but the most important thing is this: The Vargas brothers are notorious heartbreakers. She’s seen the tears and disasters that dating a Vargas boy can cause, and she swore an oath—with candles and a contract and everything—to never have anything to do with one.
Now Jude is the only sister still living at home, and she’s spending the summer helping her ailing father restore his vintage motorcycle—which means hiring a mechanic to help out. Is it Jude’s fault he happens to be cute? And surprisingly sweet? And a Vargas?
Jude tells herself it’s strictly bike business with Emilio. Her sisters will never find out, and Jude can spot those flirty little Vargas tricks a mile away—no way would she fall for them. But Jude’s defenses are crumbling, and if history is destined to repeat itself, she’s speeding toward some serious heartbreak…unless her sisters were wrong?
Jude may have taken an oath, but she’s beginning to think that when it comes to love, some promises might be worth breaking.
Doesn't it sound phenomenal? And it's so appropriate for Valentine's Day! I've been looking forward to this book ever since I found out about it last year! You may know Sarah Ockler from titles such as Twenty Boy Summer, Fixing Delilah, and Bittersweet. After reading those wonderful things (But seriously, I loved them, and you need to read them if you haven't. Stat.), I have to say that Ockler is one of my favorite contemporary YA authors , much less one of the best in the YA world when it comes to the whole package as a writer. And look at the cover. It is resplendant. To think that the story behind it will probably be twenty times as great, sign me up. Like the day it comes out. Or sooner. May 21 can't come soon enough!
Furthermore, I highly encourage you to check out Sarah's website (where you can find her blog) and connect with her via social media (Twitter, Goodreads).
May 21st!
'Til next time!


  1. YES SARAH OCKLER! She is one of my favorite authors ever. Not only does she write awesome books, but she also follows me on Twitter and it pretty much blows my mind. Everytime she tweets me I start fangirling like crazy. She's just great. I am SO excited for this book! It's sure to be fantastic. :D
