Para quem não sabe, Likely Story é uma trilogia de livros, sendo que o primeiro é Likely Story, o segundo All that glitters e o último Red Carpet Riot. A edição que eu tenho são os três livros juntos (tipo assim) e olha, eu recomendo para quem quiser ler esses livros fazer justamente isso, porque são todos livros bem curtinhos, umas 200 páginas cada, e com finais inesperados e doidos. Vou dividir minha resenha, portanto, em três pedaços:

Likey Story is about a girl named Mallory who ends up writing a soap tv show. She never knew she would have to go through all of the work she went through.

I bought this book while I was on vacation last year, so I haven't updated in quite some time. But while I was reading it on vacation, I couldn't put it down! I got about 3/4 through the book then just kind of got bored with it. It was dragging onto long, and I just wasn't as in to it as I was when I first started reading it. I might read it again some day, and actually finish. But from what I can remember, the first little bit was very good! Just the ending was slightly dissapointing.

I loved it. It was filled with a lot of drama and cool stuff. Like you never really knew what would happen with Mallory & Keith because they would get together but there was always the show getting in between of their relationship. It was a great book!

Yes it's a YA book about soaps...don't judge cause it's a whole lotta fun!! A quick fun read about a girl, Mallory, with a narcissistic soap diva mom. Mal head writes a new TV show all while juggling her crazy social life...she's smart, funny and surprisingly real.
