The Fame Game (Fame Game #1)
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...more

It was only after I saw my sister-in-law ravenously reading her books that I thought I would give them a try, and I feel like I owe Ms. Conrad an apology. I judged her books based on pre-conceived notions of who she was as a person, and ...more
There is Hollywood romance, the rich (and not so rich) and famous (and not so famous) in the story. The reader gets an inside view into what's real and what's not real in the world of "celebuspawns." Readers will find characters they love, some they'll hate, and some that will confuse the h ...more

Although I think she was a very one dimensional character, she does develop throughout the book and even further in the rest of the series. I liked the idea of each character being quite stereotypical because I think we relate to them well under these circumstances. Watching MTV and other reality shows will present you with these four basic character types quic ...more
We got 4 girls, but only 3 POVs (which I found too bad, because I would have loved our fourth girl to also get a chance to shine). All girls have something special. We got 2 girls who want to be actresses and one who wants to be a singer. I am not sure what Gaby wanted, but it seems to involve stuff like interviewing celebrities and talking to ...more

Rating: 3/5 stars
This series is a spin-off to Conrad's previous trilogy, having Madison Parker (L.A. Candy's bitchiest villain) as the main pro(?)tagonist. Just like the rest, it bears a strong resemblance to Laguna Beach or The Hills. Nothing so dramatic throughout this first book, just the same as the previous ones. Slightly disappointed on how the book promised a "more devious" plot and it did not happen. It's more of an introductory ...more
So, Madison, the arch enemy and the antagonist villain from the previous installment of L.A Candy is back with a new show. Her antagonistic nature brings her worst side when POP TV wants her in a new reality TV, the Fame Game which was more 'realistic' than its ...more
After reading -
This work was written beautifully. The characters were very well developed as well as the setting. I was nervous reading this because I didn't read "L.A. Candy" But this was really easy to follow and I enjoyed it.
I only gave this book three stars based on:
1. Writing Style
3. Character development
Other then that I didn't have much to say. I like the ...more
Madison is still obsessed with fame and attention. This time, she vows to be the main star of the show. However, she finds herself getting pushed to the background mainly because of Carmen, the child of two popular people in the entertainment industry ...more
The cover of this book is similar to the ones of the LA Candy Trilogy. An all black background with dark pink and white lettering. In the center is a crushed starshaped lollipop. Again a real classy cover.
The writing style of Lauren Conrad is again fun and easy but sadly t ...more
To be quite honest, from reading the summary on the back of the book, and knowing that a television personality wrote this book somewhat based on her own experiences, I didn't have very high expectations of The Fame Game when I picked it up. But I was actually pleasantly surprised by it.
I enjoy Lauren Conrad's writing style. I think it's straightforward and to the point. I didn't think the book was particularly poetic, but it had its mom ...more
At first, I considered The Fame Game a dull read. Seriously, it was unbearable to read Hollywood rants, fashion crises, and family drama. I can't even believe that I managed to finish this. I must have been bored.
I'm stuck between giving this 2 or 3 stars, because I couldn't pinpoint whether I liked the book or not. Reading The Fame Game reminded me of Blue Bloods but, this ...more
