Description

Lauren Conrad, star of the hit MTV reality series The Hills, brings her insider knowledge to Starstruck, the second book in the Fame Game series.
 
In Starstruck, Madison isn’t getting much screen time on The Fame Game, the reality TV show following three girls trying to become stars in L.A. She’s too busy doing community service after stealing a necklace. Kate, on the other hand, is getting huge amounts of publicity now that one of her songs has become an overnight sensation—and it’s going to her head. And aspiring actress Carmen, the daughter of Hollywood royalty, is finally making a name for herself.
 
The juicy story from bestselling author Lauren Conrad explores friendship, family, romance, ambition, and fame.

4More character driven than The Fame Game  Nov 16, 2012 By AboutToRead
There is something about Conrad's writing that just sucks me into her stories. I am happy to say that Starstruck was just good as The Fame Game and I am impressed with the growth we've seen in Madison's character. There are far less reality TV driven scandals in this series than there were in L.A. Candy, which makes the two series similar, but also very different. While L.A. Candy is very much plot driven, The Fame Game is actually more character driven

My favorite character in The Fame Game was Kate. She was so normal and down-to-earth that I thought she would be very similar to Jane--not so much. We see some definite changes in Kate's character in Starstruck, and unfortunately I can't say they were good changes. Madison, however, continued her growth from her L.A. Candy days.

Madison is by far the most surprising part of this series. Anyone who has read L.A. Candy knows how hateful she was. Would anyone believe she is my favorite character in Starstruck? Making Madison more likable was brilliant and has added so much to Starstuck.

While there was, of course, some level of drama, it didn't feel that scandalous. There were a lot more shocking scenes in L.A. Candy & The Fame Game, but Starstruck felt like it was more about growing up, finding your place, and adjusting to the limelight.

Even though Starstruck doesn't have the same fame-grubbing, camera hogging quality that Lauren Conrad's previous novels have, it is still an enjoyable read. Emphasizing the characters and down playing the drama is a new direction for Conrad's novels, but I have to say that it works well. The next novel, Infamous, is expected to be released in June.


2As Gratifying As An Episode of The Hills  Aug 28, 2013 By Emma
Last summer I actually enjoyed the first book of the Fame Games series. It was a good poolside read that required next to no concentration. I had decided I would read the next book and just now got around to it. Honestly, I wasn't missing much. This book really lacked substance and plot. (Two important elements to a good book.) If you enjoyed watching The Hills just to veg out, then you will probably enjoy this book because they are similar in the sense that really nothing happens. I think I'm done reading these books. Well, until I find myself wanting another poolside read, requiring zero concentration.


4Another Great Read by Lauren  Jan 22, 2013 By Arizona Native
I enjoy Lauren Conrad's books. They are fast reads and her storylines keep you interested. This is the continuation of the LA Candy's Series with the spotlight on Madison Parker with some new characters coming into play (don't want to spoil it for those that want to read). This book is a good poolside, beach or airplane read. You can read bits at a time and be entertained or you can sit for hours and not want to put the book down.


5Easy / Fun Read  Dec 26, 2013 By mark twain
This series of books is really fun and an easy read. It's delightful to read and keeps you engaged, but it's nothing terribly difficult. I would say this is a pre-teen reading level. So for me (an adult) it's just a simple pleasurable read. Lauren Conrad makes you feel connected to the characters and you care for even the more "evil" characters. Definitely a cute read!


5Love the book but not the seller.  Nov 30, 2012 By Pen Name
I am currently reading this book and so far I love it just like I love all of Lauren Conrad's books :)
However, as for seller, I wasn't impressed. It took me nearly a month to receive my package. When my package exceeded the expected arrival date I contacted the seller letting them know I still hadn't recieved my item and it took them almost a week to respond to my email.
