Book Club Friday #18

Happy Friday friends!
 
Linking up, yet again, for one of my favorite link-ups with Heather and Katie.
 
 
This week, I'm sharing Hollywood is Like High School with Money by Zoey Dean.
 
My sweet friend, Becca sent me this to check out.
 


 
Book description from GoodReads:
 
Twenty-four-year old Taylor Henning has just landed her dream job as an assistant at a major movie studio. But when her catty coworkers trick her into almost getting fired, she realizes that the old saying "Hollywood is like school with money" just may be true. The thing is, Taylor wasn't exactly a social butterfly in high school-how is she supposed to do any better the second time around?

That's when she meets her boss's popular sixteen-year-old daughter Quinn, and has an epiphany: maybe this teenager can teach her how to use her queen bee tactics to succeed in the Hollywood popularity contest. Quinn comes up with a plan to teach Taylor one lesson a week-everything from "Fake it 'til you make it" to "It's *never* your fault"--and soon Taylor finds herself winning the war against rival assistant Kylie. Until, that is, she's directed to steal Kylie's boyfriend, and something happens that's not in the game plan: Taylor falls for the guy. Now she must do the impossible-- harness her inner mean girl while staying true to herself.

 
My thoughts: 

I thought this book was very cute. Also, very Lauren Conrad-ish. It reminded me a lot of the LA Candy series. The characters were easy to visualize, and it was a quick read. The perfect book to take out to the pool, for sure.
 
I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars.

Have you read this book?

Be sure and friend me on GoodReads!

Gosh you have me thinking about how much or should I say how little I really do read. I need to pick up a book and get to reading in my spare time again.

I haven't read the LA Candy series but it sounds like a good light read. This one, too. Thanks!
