"Romantic comedies...they're all the same right?"
"Painfully so."
Those are the exact words that I would use to describe this book. It was just so painfully boring and slow. There was no excitement in the book. Nothing that made the book interesting. The predictableness of the book didn't really help either. It just made it seem that much more uninteresting. It was just pretty much about a girl finding love, and manipulating to her own advantage.

Tracy is working as a tour guide at Sovereign Studios the summer before she starts at UCLA as a freshman. Though there have never been a draught of first dates for Tracy, there is always something that leaves her not wanting a second date with prospective beaus.

When Connor walks into the commissary, she tells her friend Liz that she's been going about things the wrong way. There must be something to all the romantic comedies that the public soaks up at the

I choose this as an IR book. It's called Love, Hollywood Style. Basically this girl doesn't think she will find love. So she goes to love movies. she literally watches all love movies she can possibly find and takes notes.she winds up doing the first meet and things like that. But when she notices that it isn't going to plan it switches. Read the book and your gonna find out more. An external conflict she has is with her best friend because she finds her best friend with the guy she is trying t ...more

I had a bunch in this line, but this is the only one I read. It was entertaining enough to finish, but pretty weirdly over the top and cliche, and not worth picking up a similar book.

This was a great Simon Pulse comedy for me because I love romantic comedies, even many of the crappy ones. Thus the premise (that Tracy will woo her crush by acting like she's in a movie) is right up my alley. I enjoyed seeing Tracy throw herself into her crazy scheme and seeing what she learned from it.

Cover: I would have liked to see one of the scenes illustrated but I still like the style of animation.

This book was...interesting.

Like most of the other books from the romantic comedy series it had a girl who falls in love with a guy.

What annoyed me was that it was predictable and it was very similar to the other books like it.

But, it was ok and I loved reading about the scrapes that the main character got into, they were hilarious to read about :D

Love, Hollywood Style was a bit predictable not because the formula of the book was laid out but because I kind of figured what would go down. But it was an OK book nonetheless. P.J. Ruditis did an OK job with the story. Needles to say this book wasn't one of my absolute faves but I kind of enjoyed it despite my lack of enthusiasm.

Predictable and cliché beyond compare. I had to rate as two-stars simply because I don't have it in me to be mean and rate it any lower. It's a typical installment in the Simon Pulse chick lit series thing they have going on (though I'll admit there are some diamonds in the rough).

I honestly can't believe I finished this book. A girl living in SoCal, working for a movie studio as a page, decides to fix her love life by following all of the elements of a romantic comedy. Disaster ensues. Lots of current movies, movies stars named-this book will be dated in a year.
T.M. Carper
Cute light romance aimed at teens. There's a lot of movie references and the main character works at a movie studio as a page. It's bland enough that even pre-teens could read it. A short, sweet summer read. Not as trashy as some.

It was goo. I totally saw what guy she was going end up with from the very beginning. Otherwise it was much better than I thought it would be.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia where I lived a typical childhood with a far more interesting fantasy life.

That many? Never mind.)
