{Book Review} The Fame Game

I must be on a roll. Two books in two weeks. Wow!
I decided to start reading Lauren Conrad's The Fame Game because I had previously enjoyed her L.A. Candy series.  This book is a "spin-off" of the L.A. Candy series.  

If you've read those, you may remember evil Madison and ditzy Gaby from L.A. Candy, but there are two new-comers,  Carmen - an aspiring actress with Hollywood royalty in her blood and Kate - an aspiring singer from Ohio.  I really wish Gaby would have been written out.  I get that she's a filler, but c'mon. I still think about who these characters are "loosely" based on.  

I have to admit that there are a lot of similarities between all of the books.  I'm sure I'll read the sequel to this one when it comes out in October, but they're all a bit predictable.  It's definitely an easy, fun beach read. 

If you're going to read this book, start with the entire L.A. Candy series.  You will be a little lost not knowing the full back history, but then again maybe it's more entertaining coming in to this series.  

What I didn’t like about this book: It was predictable.

What I liked about this book: It was an easy read and I like cheesy, girly books.

Who would enjoy this book?
Anyone who likes Lauren Conrad and her L.A. Candy series.

What type of read is it? Easy, light read.

Would I recommend this book? It's easy and great for a summer read.  But cheesy, girly books MUST be your thing!

My favorite light summer reads are magazines! I'm reading "One Day" now which is really good, but I'm already looking for my next read so I'll have to look at this one! I love LC's blog too- speaking of easy reads :)

I definitely may consider this one. Once I get through my stack of to-reads.

Kristi said...

I read the entire L.A. Candy series last summer and have been skeptical as to whether or not I should read this one. But I think I may give it a try now. Thanks!
