Hot Dog Girl
Hot Dog Girl | Jennifer Dugan
A fresh and funny contemporary YA rom-com set in a local amusement park. "I'm wrecked with love for this funny, joyful, bighearted book." --Becky Albertalli, author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda Elouise (Lou) Parker is determined to have the absolute best, most impossibly epic summer of her life. There are just a few things standing in her way: * She's landed a job at Magic Castle Playland . . . as a giant dancing hot dog. * Her crush, the dreamy Diving Pirate Nick, already has a girlfriend, who is literally the Princess of the park. But Lou's never liked anyone, guy or otherwise, this much before, and now she wants a chance at her own happily ever after. * Her best friend, Seeley, the carousel operator, who's always been up for anything, suddenly isn't when it comes to Lou's quest to set her up with the perfect girl or Lou's scheme to get close to Nick. * And it turns out that this will be their last summer at Magic Castle Playland--ever--unless she can find a way to stop it from closing. Still, Lou's absolutely positive she's just one good plan away from getting this summer back on track. Jennifer Dugan's sparkling debut coming-of-age queer romance stars a princess, a pirate, a hot dog, and a carousel operator who find love--and themselves--in unexpected people and unforgettable places.

Not really my favorite. The MC is just a little whiny and a bit selfish for me personally. I just didn‘t like how she went about trying to get a guy to like her, only to have things completely change and all the drama that entails.

BookishGirl06 @SaturnDoo oh wow. Like it so far ? 3mo
SaturnDoo @BookishGirl06 the writing isn't the best, the MC is a little annoying and there's a soap opera feel to the story. But overall, it's an ok read so far. 3mo
GirlMeetsBook @SaturnDoo I felt similar. It was okay but not my favorite. And there‘s a weird lack of consequences for the MC‘s illegal actions. 3mo

This was adorable! The story of a queer teenage girl just trying to figure it all out. Solid characters, a fun plot, and an overall lovely feeling. If you‘re into contemporary YA at all, then I‘d definitely recommend this one. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I finished HOT DOG GIRL on my #audiowalk, and it‘s another of my qualified picks. It‘s pretty cute and I really liked where the relationships ended up, but I found the middle SO frustrating. Lou‘s awful in such an oblivious way that I honestly couldn‘t hope she‘d get together with anyone, because I wouldn‘t wish her on either love interest. If I hadn‘t enjoyed Nick and Seeley in the final scenes, it would‘ve been a So-So.

xicanti @bcncookbookclub no Ravelry for me, alas. A friend showed it to me a while back, but I‘m an infrequent knitter and I work at a much lower level that most of the people there, so it wasn‘t a good fit. 4mo

Guess who burnt their bottom lip checking to see if their zucchini risotto was fit for consumption?

(The verdict: it‘s nice and vegetably, with a bit of a kick from the Cajun seasoning I added to the broth. Definitely something I‘ll make again.)

The book‘s still cute, too. A little Teen Issues in feel, but I‘m in one of those moods where I can deal with that. #audiocooking

I switched to HOT DOG GIRL for my afternoon #audiowalk, and it‘s cute so far. I think I‘m gonna stick with it instead of rereading DEARLY, DEPARTED.

You‘ll be unsurprised to learn this sky dumped a bunch of rain on me and I had to rush into the nearest Shoppers. I looked at EVERY SINGLE THING in the skincare department while I waited for the world to dry out again.

Such a cute sweet #queer rom com! #Bisexual Elouise lives in a small town that revolves around an old nostalgic amusement where all the teens have summer jobs. Teens include her crush Nick, her lesbian BFF Seeley, and Jessa the park princess / Nick's gf. Elouise is trying one last time to get Nick's attention and to save the park when she learns it's being closed. Including fake dating Seeley. A bit melodramatic and angsty, but to be expected?

So are the two queer girl BFFs who have now entered a fake relationship gonna fall for each other?? This is a genuine question I don't know which way this love square (is that the term for a love triangle with four people?) is gonna go! #QueerBooks #BisexualBooks #GayYA #LGBTQBooks

I will start by saying that this book redeemed itself a bit towards the end, even though I predicted most of what happened pretty early on. I just couldn‘t convince myself to root for Elouise- she came off as super selfish and inconsiderate. It wasn‘t a horrible book, but I didn‘t like it nearly as much as I‘d hoped.

A cute little YA book. I suspected the ending pretty early, but it still put a smile on my face. A bunch of imperfect teens working at an amusement park make a mess of their lives. Especially Lou who has an epic crush on one of the diving pirates &decides pretending to date her bff is the solution. Lou could be a frustrating mc but she grew a lot in ways that felt authentic. I think Becky Albertalli fans will especially enjoy the snark and story.

The best part about this book is the side characters, who were great. Also, there is decent bisexuality rep in the main character. It is a romance and does include a fake relationship. It was cute, but the naivety of the main character and the shitty choices she made stopped this from being a great book. Read as an #audiobook via #scribd

I am so behind on my reviews! Loved this one. Coming of age story with a great setting and fun characters. I would love to see this made into a movie. I think most people can relate to being the Hot Dog Girl instead of the Princess. Highly recommend if you enjoyed Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda.

I finally finished a book this week and it feels so good! Lou is working at Magic Castle Playland again this summer and she can't wait to find out what she is going to be doing. She isn't so happy to find out that she is going to be the Hot Dog girl again this year. She really wants to win the heart of Nick and she doesn't know how too. When she fakes a relationship with her best friend Seeley, she doesn't plan on is falling for her 👇🏻
