I was excited to read this book because for us outsiders, the real life of a Hollywood star seems like glamourous and scandalous at the same time. What would it be like in fiction?

“All That Glitters” is the story of Alexandria ‘Alex’ Moreno who arrives at Los Angeles with the big American dream of becoming a top Director in Hollywood. But life in Hollywood isn’t easy and Alex finds that out pretty quick. As the title suggests, she gets entangled in a life of Sex, Drugs, and glamorous lifestyles.

Then the story rewinds to when it all began when Alex and her friend, Elly, journe

The movie industry is a real enigma. Along with success , celebrity status and posh lifestyle, the actors go through a lot of abuse, bias, cheating and crushed relationships. First of all, it is so hard to be determined and achieve success and especially for a woman in direction category, it is not an ordinary feat. This is the story of Alex Morano who leaves her home town to Los Angeles with a determination to direct a movie. She has to do some odd jobs until she finds a job as personal secreta ...more
