    I don't know why I was expecting this to escalate to a darker turn because with the description and the story itself it could really go for it but this makes my cold and dead heart thump, this is actually cute.

I just didn't 100% bought it (like yes I know it's fictional but still) there were some parts that could've been expanded but were loosely tied up instead. The execution was also sloppy but it's an overall cute story and pretty much a quick read. I also appreciated a lot of the references in this book which was definitely a call-out to my basic tastes, and Ella as a protagonist is definitely not that bad but she def could've used more depth. Summary: Cute but def needs more subtance.

She felt incredibly betrayed and manipulated when she discovered they had staged the heart trail.

    Fast read, but also underwhelming. Felt a bit rushed in some areas. This would be a perfect introduction to contemporary romance, though. Very simple and short. I wasn’t swooning, but it had swooning potential. The entire plot seemed sweet, but I didn’t enjoy the execution. Also... totally guessed who Andy was from the start. 😗

Many thanks to Penguin Random House International #partner and Underlined for the free review copy. 💕 11 Paper Hearts was the perfect book to start 2020 with! I loved every moment of cozying up to this adorable little novel. Ella’s story was sweet, had a lot of emotional depth and the added touch of mystery made reading the book really enjoyable. It’s definitely one of those rare YA novels that will hold your attention throughout the story. 💜 Ella was a really relatable teenager! Her struggles to fit in, even with her closest friends after her tragic car accident laid a very strong foundation for the story. As you grow older, you start to realize who the real people in your life are – this fact was perfectly portrayed through various truth bombs that were dropped throughout the book. I’ve found it very hard to stand up to my friends, just like Ella does in 11 Paper Hearts, so I really connected to her that way. One of the book’s biggest lessons is: Life is very short, so we should let go of the toxic people and make space for the ones who bring out the best side of us. The sibling dynamic between Ella and Ashley was definitely one of the highlights of reading 11 Paper Hearts for me! Seeing the growth in their relationship made my heart feel so full! They had their ups and downs along the way, but that’s what made their bond so real, you know? I loved reading about Andy too! Nerdy guys in books make me go all soft and sappy, and Andy was no different. His conversations with Ella made reading the book so much better! I’ll end the review with my favorite part of reading the book – The mystery of the 11 Paper Hearts! The author created such a unique plotline by making Ella follow the trail of paper hearts. It was both heart-touching and fascinating to see that someone was trying really hard to help Ella remember the 11 weeks that she had no memory of for the accident. I thought I’d figured out who the mystery admirer was, but boy, I was so wrong! The ending was just the sweetest thing ever. Highly recommend picking 11 Paper Hearts when it comes out tomorrow. I hope you guys love reading it as much as I did! 😁

Firstly, I must say that an amnesia story always catches my attention. It is the perfect setting for a thriller mystery. While this is not a thriller, I loved how the author blends the mystery with romance. The story is short but fast-paced. A lot happens in each chapter as Ella goes on her scavenger hunt for the paper hearts. The author writes the mystery element nicely, where I wasn’t sure until the end of who was sending the hearts. Similarly, the author also describes the locations so beautifully. I want to visit Belvedere Castle to see the beautiful views. Again, I also loved how the author described “The Whispering Gallery” and would love to experience it the next time I’m in the city. The characters are dynamic as well. I liked Ella in the lead. While she is a popular girl, she is down to earth. The author wrote her nicely as she goes through different emotions due to her amnesia. I loved her friendship and chemistry with Andy. Honestly, Ella shares good chemistry with Andy and Pete. However, I loved the scenes with Andy and Ella. Some memorable moments are when they play the “Hot Chocolate Game” or see the stars. I also enjoyed the moments between Ella and Ashley. The author portrayed their bond realistically. However, the only minor criticism I have of the story is how the author did not focus on Sarah and Carmen’s characters. I would have loved more background on Ella’s confrontation with Sarah and Carmen towards the climax. Apart from that, overall, I thought “11 Paper Heart” was fun, exciting, romantic with a good mystery alongside.

Unfortunately, I just didn’t care for anything else about the book. The main character, Ella, lacked depth and development and, for someone who spent a good amount of time talking about her own intelligence, made for a pretty shoddy detective. The mystery of the love notes was obvious and I didn’t care for the other plot points, such as Ella’s relationship with her friends or her ex-boyfriend, Pete. Overall, this book was clearly not for me but I would recommend it to younger teen readers and to fans of To All the Boys I've Loved Before.

    The perfect Valentine’s Day read with a swoony romance that left me with a smile on my face. I really enjoy amnesia stories and this one reminded me of a YA version of Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella which I also really enjoyed. The love interest was a total sweetheart and I loved as Ella put the clues together to find out who her secret admirer was.

The premise of this book was interesting a will make for a great cozy read leading into February with the right audience. I was not fully sold on the execution. I felt there were many things that still did not make sense to me by the end of the story. So I am undecided on how to rate this book. It is somewhere between it was okay and I liked it. (view spoiler)[ Ella is suppose to be this smart and organized person. She got into a great college in NYC and yet she couldn't figure out how to do a "forgot password" to get back into her social media accounts? This drove me batty! I forget passwords all the time and I just reset them... sometimes I even try to reset them to the password that I forgot they were... I kept internally screaming JUST RESET THE PASSWORD! I also found myself asking does she not have old text messages on her phone from this supposed person she was in love with prior to her accident? Did someone go into her phone and delete the messages? I don't understand how there was no digital trail that she could have used to figure out what was going on. Also I didn't buy Andy's excuse on waiting AN ENTIRE YEAR to try and get back into Ella's life after the accident. He should have been there from the start helping her recover. How can you love someone and then abandon them when they need you the most even if they temporarily cannot remember you? Who knows maybe if he was involved from the beginning she could have recovered some lost memories? I don't know I am not a doctor but this just seemed so wrong to me. Also Ella come on you're getting mad at him because he said his name was Andy instead of Drew... His name is Andrew it is all the same name! Well to me. (hide spoiler)] Thank you Netgalley for an e-arc of this book in exchange for an honest review. I wish there was half star ratings.

    This book was such a joy to read. In fact, I finished it and immediately wanted to read it again. I love the idea of the plot - a mystery without being scary. I enjoyed trying to guess the ending the entire time and happily discovering I was wrong. I love when books are able to surprise me. I found Ella and all of her thoughts extremely relatable. She nailed the uncomfortable teenager, not really sure where she fits in, or how to speak up when she witnesses someone else being mean. This book has This book was such a joy to read.

This book has romance, friendship, mystery, and lovely comedic moments. I love the touch of capitalizing certain phrases, e.g. “Normal Teenage Things”. The quick, witty dialogue between Andy and Ella is reminiscent of Gilmore Girls. I have already recommended this book to so many people. If you’re reading this, you’re next. Go read it! I can’t wait to read what Kelsey Hartwell writes next.

This was a sweet YA love story that had me swooning, and such a great twist on a second chance romance. The mystery with the paper hearts led Ella to a scavenger hunt, but instead of trying to remember, she was more present, getting out of her bubble post-accident, creating new memories in parallel to the old ones. The nostalgia spoke volumes, and the ending was still somewhat of a surprise to me (in a good way). Yes, I LOVED it! Seriously the perfect, quick binge on Valentine’s week.

I was hoping eternally that she would stand up to them as they clearly weren't a good group of people. Even after finishing the book, I still cant understand why no one at all just filled Ella in on her missing weeks. Her parents, sibling, friends, love interests.... all of them must have known the basics and no one thought to just tell her anything that had gone on. It all struck me as a bit odd and I think ruined my enjoyment of the story. It's also quite odd that the mystery heart sender waited an entire year before trying to help her regain her memory, it perhaps made for a better story but it just felt cruel to me, and so it took away the cute edge that I was hoping the story would hold.

    An ADORABLE read! Sure, it was a bit predictable, but, that didn't damper my enjoyment of it. I think I liked it BECAUSE it was a little predictable, I wanted the things to happen that were going to happen…if that makes sense. I tell you though I thought for sure I knew who was leaving the hearts, but I was a bit wrong on that, so, not entirely predictable for me as it'll probably be for others who are going to read this. Let's get back to the adorableness though. It was SO CUTE in the sort of way An ADORABLE read! Sure, it was a bit predictable, but, that didn't damper my enjoyment of it.

Let's get back to the adorableness though. It was SO CUTE in the sort of way that 'To All the Boys I've Loved Before' or 'The Kissing Booth' was which this book is compared to in the synopsis, and I have to agree for what sort of 'feel' the book gives, they were spot on. (I haven't read so I can't compare the style or caliber of writing styles, but I've seen the movie adaptations of those two books) It's fluffy, sweet, and also a bit about embracing change and the unknown while making sure you KNOW who you want to be or don't want to be because we're not always sure of who we are in the moment. Ella was one of the popular girls and she still is but I loved watching her morph, to change her own perception of her friends and herself, and not to mention I also adored her sister and both Pete and Andy as the boys in this book. 3.5/5 huge cups of coffee from me, thanks so much to the publisher and NetGalley for an eARC of this in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Great book, especially one to read around Valentine's Day! I love the concept of the book and that the storyline not only focuses on love, but also on friendship as well. Losing part of our memory is not something most of us have experience with.

It was clean cut and straight-laced, I still thought it was a cute read. Okay, the scavenger hunt and the romance was cute not the accident. I'm an a*****e but not that big of a one though. Ella wasn't a character that I instantly liked. She annoyed me a bit, especially when things started becoming clearer but she still turned a blind eye to it. It was a time where I just wanted to scream at the main character to open her damn eyes. Andy was the cutest and sweetest character. He was the stronger character out of him and Ella. I wish he wasn't done so dirty. 11 Paper Hearts was a quick read. It really reminded me of a book that you would recommend for readers who want to start reading contemporary romance. This was cute but don't expect TATBILB cuteness.

    Sweet, soft, and perfect for the mood I was in at that time. Loved the main character as well as the supporting characters, like her ex, her sister, her partner detective etc. My only complaint is that I wish the backstories had been fleshed out a little more. After the revelation, I felt like I did not know these characters at all (much like how the main character felt). And the ending seemed rushed. I think a few more additional chapters would have helped me connect with the story more.

She had a circle of close friends, a jam-packed social life, and an amazing boyfriend. But then something completely unexpected happened: a car accident after a Valentine's Day dance. When Ella woke up in the hospital, she couldn't remember the accident . . . or anything about the weeks before it, including the reason she broke up with her boyfriend. Now, a year later, she begins receiving paper hearts from a mysterious admirer who seems to have the answers she craves. Ella is intrigued. The hearts contain clues to help Ella remember her life before...and take her on a journey she never imagined. Need someone to check you out? And for the record, I mean the book, not you, so don’t get mad at me about that too. Simple and sweet; just what I was wanting. There's nothing new to this recipe so if you're looking for a straight-forward and light romance then this is the book for you. The concept of the paper hearts giving back Ella lost time was a cute idea and I enjoyed watching it unfold. While I was surprised at who was behind the hearts, nothing else was a shocker. I was content to be along for the ride. Don’t be so concerned with your past and your future that you forget how utterly incredible you are right now. I only had one issue at the end, (view spoiler)[the likelihood of nobody spilling the beans to Ella that she switched friend groups and boyfriends is slim-to-none...and I don't understand why they wouldn't tell her even if they didn't think she'd believe them anyway? I get wanting to regrow the relationships organically but that doesn't mean you can't explain and then let it happen or not from there??? (hide spoiler)] but even if you don't look too closely at it I did like the idea that came from it (view spoiler)[that some connections on a visceral level don't change even if the experiences themselves do (hide spoiler)] . Recommended for teens of the light romance lover club.

    This book was ok but I think that there wasn’t enough of the actual romance. I liked the plot the most in this book as I liked the scavenger hunt thing and how Ella had to follow the clues to find out what happened in the 11 weeks before the accident. I liked that at some of the places that the clues led to the characters did things but there were too many places where they went there found the paper heart and left.

I liked the plot the most in this book as I liked the scavenger hunt thing and how Ella had to follow the clues to find out what happened in the 11 weeks before the accident. I liked that at some of the places that the clues led to the characters did things but there were too many places where they went there found the paper heart and left. I wanted to see more scenes with Ella interacting with the other characters and doing things. For example, at the ice skating rink, nothing actually happens. They go there, the other character says they don’t ice skate and Ella just leaves them there and skates around, gets disappointed that she can’t find the paper heart, then they get hot chocolate and that’s it. I would have wanted to see more details like what they talked about and maybe them actually skating together as it was just boring. The characters were ok but other than Ella, you don’t really get to know as they don’t appear enough or for long enough in the scenes. I didn’t like Ella’s friends and I don’t think that Ella liked them either but she doesn’t do anything about it until one of the last chapters. All the other characters aren’t really shown enough to actually get to know them. The main characters might spend time together but it’s not until the last time that they were together that Ella wasn’t only thinking about the paper hearts. Also, the relationship to me wasn’t shown because after she finds out what she did in the 11 weeks before the accident, the main characters don’t talk for weeks and then there is one scene where they see each other and everything thing is fine. There was no epilogue or other chapters after that to see how they would actually get along as a couple. This book was ok but it wasn’t for me as nothing really happened, despite the creative plot. The main characters don’t really interact with each other even when they spend time together and Ella doesn’t like some things but still goes along with them which didn’t make sense.

    3.5 stars This was simple, beautiful and cute! This story is a sweet, simple and heart warming young adult romance. I think the fans of To All the Boys I've Loved Before and The Kissing Booth will definitely enjoy reading this book. There is a mystery that the protagonist, Ella tries to solve and some much expected high school drama but overall, the story is a mix between young love and the struggles of being in high school/ a teenager. I especially liked the ending and all the cute moments share 3.5 stars This was simple, beautiful and cute! This story is a sweet, simple and heart warming young adult romance.

There is a mystery that the protagonist, Ella tries to solve and some much expected high school drama but overall, the story is a mix between young love and the struggles of being in high school/ a teenager. I especially liked the ending and all the cute moments shared by Ella and her forgotten love. Ella was able to accept the truth when it was uncovered and move past her issues but best of all she was able to acknowledge her own love story in the end. Even though she couldn't remember the boy she fell in love with, she was able to feel his love to the fullest extent. "If I'm being honest with myself, he's the real reason I felt so lost this year. Now I know why - he borrowed my heart like a library book, but he never really gave it back." Ella is a hopeless romantic but after she is involved in a car accident she suffers from Amnesia causing her to lose 11 weeks of her life. In that time, she forgets meeting the boy she loves and the drama surrounding her best friends. After a year, on Valentine's Day she receives a paper heart with a clue to one of eleven locations. Ella has to follow the clues from her secret admirer and try to remember the beautiful moments she experienced at each location.

It isn’t until the night of the Valentine’s Day dance—when she gets in a car accident—that all of that changes, losing her memories of the eleven weeks leading up to the event. One year later, still unable to recall those weeks, she starts receiving mysterious paper hearts from a secret admirer, giving her clues as to what happened those weeks so that she can begin to find answers to the questions that keep haunting her: why did she break up with her boyfriend, Pete, and what could have possible prompted her to leave the dance early? This was such a cute and fun story. Ella’s journey, from trying to find out who kept sending her the paper hearts, along with changing as a person and outgrowing the life with her friends and boyfriend that she thought had always been perfect for her, was really nice to see. I thought the way Ella stood up to her friends, especially Carmen, was really well done and was happy at the end when she was able to do things that she wouldn’t have had the pleasure of experiencing had she been the person her friends expected her to be. I thought the mystery aspect was great as well, really making me wonder who the secret admirer was; just when I thought I had finally figured it out, something in the story would pop up, completely changing my mind. As for the romance, I thought it was very sweet and I couldn’t get enough of it. The conversations between Andy and Ella were really cute and I wish I’d have more of them, especially in the end since it felt a little bit rushed.

She's not sure she'll ever get them back until paper hearts with clues to what she lost mysteriously start appearing. With the help of a boy she meets, she tracks down each clue, trying to piece together everything she's missing while dealing with underlying tension with her friends she doesn't understand. What I loved: The clues themselves. Following paper hearts to places she should know is unique and inventive. It gave a real spin to a memory loss book. Ella is a fantastic character, and the reader can feel how lost she is, how much it hurts to be missing so much time. She's likable as she learns to start standing up to her friends. All of her actions are completely believable and understandable, especially in the end. I also loved that the ex who loves her still isn't vilified. He doesn't turn on her no matter how much he hurts. He just wants her to be happy. What left me wanting more: Certain other characters reasons for their actions and for keeping things from Ella seemed a bit selfish and not okay. From her sister to her best friend to others, it seemed to be a case of how things could have gone smoother if people just talked to each other. But the book is really about Ella, and in that, it excels. Final Verdict: A heartbreaking story of being lost and found again with beautiful writing, a strong female lead, and a unique plot to keep you turning pages.
