My Feelings:


In Hollywood, fame can be found on every corner and behind any door. You just have to know where to look for it. Nineteen-year-old Madison Parker made a name for herself as best frenemy of nice-girl-next-door Jane Roberts on the hot reality show L.A. Candy. Now Madison's ready for her turn in the spotlight and she'll stop at nothing to get it. Sure, she's the star of a new show, but with backstabbing friends and suspicious family members trying to bring her down, Madison has her work cut out for her. Plus, there's a new nice girl in "reality" town—aspiring actress Carmen Price, the daughter of Hollywood royalty—and she's a lot more experienced at playing the fame game... When the camera's start rolling, whose star will shine brighter?

My Review:
Yes, I still need to finish the L.A. Candy series by Lauren Conrad, but  when I saw The Fame Game at the library I really wanted to read it.

As the L.A. Candy series we have four girls who are being followed around by cameras.  We got Madison, the attention seeker, the back-stabbing girl with a troubled past. She wants the spotlight and will do everything that is in her power to get it. Gaby, the weird, silly, not so smart girl. She doesn’t say much, think much and I have no idea why she’s in the book. We get to read all of the other girls thoughts, except for Gaby. Kate is the nicest one. I liked her the most. She’s friendly, caring, trustworthy and ambitious. And then we have Carmen. She comes from money and wants to find her own spotlight. She’s a caring character, but also very selfish. The other, secondary characters, are really interesting. Especially Trevor Lord, the boss.

The plot is dramalicious. But, what else can you expect from Lauren Conrad? She writes about what she knows and does that very good. I especially love that she has a message in her story. You can’t trust no one in Hollywood and the girls (characters) find that out the hard way. There is a bit of romance in the story, but not enough to make me swoon. It was just a cute, sweet romance.

Overall The Fame Game was really entertaining. &  I can’t wait to read the sequel, Starstruck. Fingers crossed it will be as drama-filled as The Fame Game.

I have been so curious about her books, but I have been hesitant because I wasn't sure if she was a great writer. Great Review!

I don't normally read books by celebrities but I like that Conrad writes about what she knows. This series sounds like it's full of drama.

I usually don't go for dramalicious, but I swear, you do have me rethinking it. I may have to try this one out. :)
