19245811 Famous in Love

Authors: Rebecca Serle
Publisher: Poppy
Release Date: October 21, 2014

Link to Goodreads:

The romantic story of a girl who gets plucked from obscurity to star in the next major feature film franchise based on a book and the ensuing love triangles she gets entangled in on—-and off screen.

Meet Paige Townsen, Rainer Devon, and Jordan Wilder…

When Paige Townsen, a young unknown, gets cast in the movie adaptation of a blockbuster book series, her life changes practically overnight. Within a month, Paige has traded the quiet streets of her hometown for a crowded movie set on the shores of Maui, and is spending quality time with her co-star Rainer Devon, one of People’s Sexiest Men Alive. But when troubled star Jordan Wilder lands the role of the other point in the movie’s famous love triangle, Paige’s crazy new life gets even crazier.

In this coming-of-age romance inspired by the kind of celeb hookups that get clever nicknames and a million page views, Paige must figure out who she is – and who she wants – while the whole world watches.

   
Why I'm Excited:
I'm loving the idea of an insider look at a YA blockbuster. I'm totally picturing a Jennifer Lawrence type character (even though The Hunger Games wasn't her first movie, I know). This cover is seriously lame, but I love a good Hollywood story and this just sounds really fun.

  5. Ah, this does sound good. I like that behind-the-scenes look, too. I agree, though...that cover needs work. Reminds me of one of the Lauren Conrad covers. Blech.

  6. I hope you'll enjoy this one. I don't think it's for me since it alludes to the dreaded love triangle.

  7. Love Hollywood-set books! I'm not sure about the love triangle, but I'm willing to give it a try. Though, I agree, that cover is blech!

  11. Oh wow! This sounds right up my alley! I used to dream of this happening to me when I was younger! (The acting part, anyway. I wouldn't have minded a love triangle either!) LOL! Great pick Natalie!

  12. I had no idea Rebecca had 2 books coming out this year, but I've added this to my list because I loved her debut.

  13. I hadn't heard of this one, but it does sound good. Hard to tell if it's going to be more serious or light and fluffy, I'll have to check out reviews. Great pick! ~Pam

  14. Yeahhh not a fan of the cover but this book sounds awesome! I've always wondered what it would be like to be cast in a huge book to movie adaptation. Thanks so much for posting this! Adding to my TBR!

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
