    " I liked this book.....alittle slow but stick with it.,,,,,a good summer read.,,,,lite and easy to read,,,, "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire | 2/12/2014

    " If you want a mindless, entertaining read this is perfect. Good pace and fun, interesting characters. Xoxo "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lucie Hayward | 2/6/2014

    " This book was trashy and of no intellectual value whatsoever. LOVED IT. It was good in the way Jackie Collins used to be good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 2/2/2014

    " A fun book that covers the week before the Oscars. This book is a bit Devil Wears Prada, Sex and the City, and a toss fashionista. I'd recommend this as a beach read for the girly girl. Fun and easy and a bit self-absorbed best describes the main character in her path of self discovery. She comes from money, is a bit of a waffler in her jobs, but somehow manages to get her life together in spite or despite it all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 2/1/2014

    " Great Beach Read! Daughter of Hollywood Royalty with her perceptions of other actors/actresses during Oscar week. If you liked Nanny Diaries or The Devil Wears Prada, you'll like this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 1/31/2014

    " This felt a little self important. They were so busy pointlessly name dropping that if you were to take out all of the needless references to brad pitt, angelina, et al., then the book would be half it's size. Nothing substantial. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy Formanski | 1/25/2014

    " Published just in time for the Oscars this year, Celebutantes follows an up-and-coming stylist who lives in her big-time director dad's shadow. She attempts to get big name actresses to wear her friend's designer dresses to the Oscars, and exposes the Hollywood folks for the shallow, selfish bastards they are. No surprises there, but the authors provide lots of laughs along the way, and you really find yourself rooting for the good guys. The good guys include the gay fashion designer, the PR best-friend character who actually has a soul, and a struggling actress who's also too nice for her own good. The best part is that the authors seem to realize how ridiculous this world is, full of flaky, spoiled people. They don't take anything too seriously. It's a great campy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Francesca | 1/25/2014

    " Its a great book that really gives you insight into the crazy and self-centered world of Hollywood written by two insiders. Its a page turner and definitely worth reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alisa | 1/18/2014

    " I thought this might be a witty look at how the people on the inside of the celeb bubble deal with the superficiality. While the novel is indeed about that, it wasn't witty. Still a decent beach read though. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maxine | 1/18/2014

    " I just couldn't get into this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Teresa Weaver | 1/18/2014

    " This was a fun book to read--good for pool side or a plane ride. The narration is VERY fast, with lots of celebrity names and movies being dropped every five seconds. It's fun, but I had to take it in staged, it made my head spin trying to take it all in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Piper | 1/8/2014

    " The name dropping got really painful after awhile. Summer/poolside read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liz Graves | 12/31/2013

    " I loved this book, mostly b/c it was filled with Hollywood and all the celeb name dropping! It was still a really fun, fast paced, easy, entertaining read! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chicken Lit'er | 12/22/2013

    " I started reading this book and couldn't stand it. The constant celebrity name dropping and shallow characters drove me insane. I put this one down to read something with more substance - which could be just about anything in comparison. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kat Hardy | 12/15/2013

    " This book was a pleasant surprise I thought I would be one of those predictable books but it wasn't. It was well written and quite funny in some places an over all an enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Doug | 11/17/2013

    " Fun, but not well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen Boyd | 10/2/2013

    " A interesting look inside Hollywood and the divas (male and female). It sure makes you wonder "why"! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 C | 7/14/2013

    " Alot of name dropping. More thought could have been put into the story line rather than trying to get every celebrity name into the book. Stick with People, it's more interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tara | 6/21/2013

    " Fun cover. And that's about all the good I can say about it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 6/14/2013

    " Good chick lit! (Recommended to those who enjoy their weekly subscription of US Weekly.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betsy | 5/16/2013

    " this is a FUN, quick read with dry wit. something to read when you're in between serious pieces or just looking for a nice in-flight distraction! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea Levine | 2/25/2013

    " Really cute and funny...based on celebs and fashion, need i say more?! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Erika | 6/6/2012

    " I just didn't like it..... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meadow | 6/4/2012

    " I wanted to stop reading this from the first page, but it was my last library book and I won't have anything else to read until I return. The name dropping is overwhelming and obnoxious. It seemed very forced and phony. The writing was meh, the story was even more so. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Lea | 5/2/2012

    " Okay - I like the "fluffy" novels. This is about a priviledged girl who grew up in Hollywood. It has alot of "behind the scenes." Very fast entertaining book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 CB | 3/13/2012

    " This isn't a book; it's lists of luxury brands and the shallow people who buy them (or rather, demand to get them for free.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caitie | 7/11/2011

    " This was a very light, easy read. There is major celebrity name dropping in here, but it's still somewhat relatable since the main character, Lola, is trying to find love amongst a sea of douchebags as well as what her career calling truly is. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 5/31/2011

    " Book candy at it's most shameful. I enjoyed the book, but I would in no way declare it as a must-read. I would have been happy abandoning the book half-way through if necessary--unfortunately it wasn't needed. A good choice for a beach read, but not a good choice for the intellectual set. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Misha | 4/25/2011

    " oooh it was liking reading a gossip mag. i love name dropping in books. solid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Regan | 2/28/2011

    " Loved it!! It's like all my favorite trashy tabloids (Star, US, and InTouch) got together and wrote a book. Add in characters you actually like and a super cute story line. Can't wait to read the second one!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/23/2011

    " Funny and laugh out loud reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 1/10/2011

    " Fun chic lit. Read around Oscars Week in February for light hearted story with humor and the craziness of the rich and famous. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caitlin | 11/18/2010

    " I really liked it. A little bit like reading a 300ish page gossip column, but it was definitely a fun read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chrissy | 11/13/2010

    " Chick-lit gone wrong. Although it's been years since I read this novel, I can still remember that it was just nothing remarkable at all... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alison | 9/2/2010

    " It was the week of my due date- what can I say. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaarin | 7/31/2010

    " Fun, light read that explores the insanity of celebrity culture. Especially fun if you love fashion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 7/2/2010

    " A fun, easy read. Entertaining because it gives an insider's sense of being in Hollywood. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 6/13/2010

    " pure utter fluff on a plate. less thank bubblegum, but within it's own category, a great mindless read! Funny, spiteful, revenge acheived. Thought it was great "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 6/4/2010

    " This book disappointed me. It is nothing more than a predictable tale that makes for an easy poolside read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 2/23/2010

    " Expected a light read and definitely got it. This book suffers with a shocking amount of celebrity analogies, many of which are dated at the time of my reading. Meh. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lacey | 2/22/2010

    " Started off REALLY bad but thought it ended ok. "
