Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is so fluffy, but it was what I needed right now, book wise. 17 year old Paige Townsen is VERY similar to a teenage me - dramatic, aspirational, and loyal. She has a core group of friends, a job at an eclectic local shop, and a dedication to the stage (or camera). So naturally, when a movie studio has an open casting call in her town for a blockbuster movie based on a bestselling novel, Paige is there. This one leap of faith shows changes her life. Before long, she is on the set in Hawaii, flirting with heart throb Rainer Devon, and feels like she's in a dream.
I really enjoyed escaping from my life and entering Paige's. Recently, I've been reading some pretty heavy books and this fluffball was exactly what I needed. I actually listened to this on audioboo, and the narrator was just stellar. I love YA, I love fluffy chick lit, and I really enjoyed this. I bumped the sequel up on my TBR list and will be devouring it as soon as I can get my hands on it.
That being said, I did decide to take a shot on the new Freeform show based on this novel. I made it only a few minutes in when I found that Rainer is a dark haired, brooding bad boy, I was out. Sorry, Freeform, that is not Rainer Devon. Good try, though.
