review SPOILER ALERT! 2017-03-17 11:32
A Hollywood Ending - Robyn Sisman

I picked up this book from a Big Bad Wolf sale. It had an interesting premise - spoiled Hollywood actress Paige Carson suddenly accepting a low-paying theatre job in London to challenge herself and to get away from the life arranged by publicists and trying to impress fans and the media. 

The early pages were lengthy and not quite interesting - especially the second part about the London lanlord, Ed. Also, Paige's transition between acting for film and theatre isn't clearly stated - most of the part in London only shows mainly about her life outside the theatre. 

Many parts of the book were also a bit confusing - the transitions between each scene and all. It's like the story is quite 'jumpy' 

However, the story still turned quite delighting in the end, although the ending is a bit abrupt and you can pretty much guess what's happening. Especially with Gaby's part, the part where she's mentioned as a 'control freak' and 'wanting Paige to be dependent on her' through her physics and aura mumbo jumbo should be more apparent through her transitions from Hollywood to London - that would make a bigger impact when Paige finally let go of Gaby. 

Nevertheless, I enjoyed this book in the end. Worth a read!

Abandoned, Not for Me
Hollywood High - Ni-Ni Simone,Amir Abrams

Nope.  Not for me.  But, I can see it appealing to other readers.

 

I get the send-up of books like Pretty Little Liars.  Clearly going to be an outrageous, juicy series.  Funny.

 

I don't mind high school drama and mean-girl-ness if — like in this book — it really is teenagers in high school so intentional.  (It irritates me when supposedly immortal supernaturals centuries-old do it in other genres.)

 

I'm just not (maybe because of my age) going to get into or care about these girls.  I have little patience with slut-shaming, even when in snarky give-as-good-as-you-get comments.

Friday Reads!
Lights, Love & Lip Gloss (Hollywood High Book 4) - Amir Abrams,Ni-Ni Simone
Heels, Heartache & Headlines (Hollywood High) - Amir Abrams,Ni-Ni Simone
Rumors - A.C. Arthur
Revealed (The Rumors Series, Book 2) - A.C. Arthur

I will be finishing up the Hollywood High series and starting on a duology (haven't heard of a third book thus far) by A. C. Arthur that I've put off for way too long. I'm having such a good time reading and catching up with the girls in the Hollywood High series. These books are easy reads that really are a fun escape.

 

You'll realize that I'm not sticking to my March reading list. Some books really do take me forever to read and days were passing by without me picking up my kindle. I decided to re-adjust my tbr and read some backlogged books that would surely get me going again. I will eventually get to the books on my March TBR, but I will feel better with books read, under my belt, than none at all or only a couple at months end. I wish I could read multiple books at a time, but I can't.

 

I don't have plans for the weekend so, these four books seem doable.

 

Happy weekend reading everyone!

Reading progress update: I've read 33%.
Lights, Love & Lip Gloss (Hollywood High Book 4) - Amir Abrams,Ni-Ni Simone

These books are fast paced page turners. Ni-Ni Simone really knows how to keep it interesting. I would give her books four stars for the inventive language alone. Even though their home lives are anything but ideal, they use all the energy to wild out at school and with their frenemies. 

 

UPDATE

 

Rich and Heather have no idea that the news, just revealed, will be their worst nightmare. I can't wait!
