CORA AND THE REREADS: Famous in Love by Rebecca Serle

CORA AND THE REREADS is where I reread and review a book.

Sometimes a book is so awesome you have to pick it up again. Sometimes you feel like a different person than you were when you first read it. Sometimes you just need to read that book again.


When Paige Townsen gets plucked from high school obscurity to star in the movie adaptation of a blockbuster book series, her life changes practically overnight. Within a month, Paige has traded the quiet streets of her hometown for a bustling film set on the shores of Maui, and she is spending quality time with her costar Rainer Devon, one of People's Sexiest Men Alive. But when troubled star Jordan Wilder lands the role of the other point in the movie's famous love triangle, Paige's crazy new life begins to resemble her character's.

In this exciting tale of romance and drama, both on-and offscreen, Paige must adjust to a crazy new life without the daily support of her friends and family, while figuring out who she is--and who she wants--as the whole world watches.

5 Words: Love, fame, family, friendship, sacrifice.
WARNING: THIS BOOK IS TRASH.

And I kind of can't help but love it.

If you had me list out things I hate in books, this book would tick off a good 75% of them.

❤ Instalove
❤ Poor little rich kids
❤ Love triangle
❤ Forced chemistry
❤ Overly wordy descriptions
❤ Romance, romance, romance

But you know what? I'm starting to lose count of the amount of times I've read this book. It's perfect for rainy days and escaping from the world.

And I don't know why, but I just bloody love it.

I can't even say it's the characters, because really they're not so good. I can't stand Paige. And don't get me started on Rainer. They're all such cliches that it's almost (but not quite) funny. I can't say it's the romance either. The romance is bland with unfathomable instalove and I can't read it without rolling my eyes.

This is cheesy trash with a crispy-trope coating. And I need MOOORRRREEEE.

  1. Sounds like the bookish equivalent of a fast food binge! We know it's not good, but at that moment it totally hits the spot :-)

  3. Sometimes a trashy book is exactly what you need- it's an escape and something to read without having to question everything thats happening or work out what is going to!

Thank you so much for your comment.

If you've left a link back to your own blog, expect a visit from me very soon - I spend pretty much all day reading blogs and taking part in bookish discussions!
