    One thought on “Map to the Stars

    1. Aimee (Aimee, Always)

      Map to the Stars, according to the Thesaurus of Aimee, is synonymous to the word no. There was just nothing in this book that stood out or made any sort of impact on me--except that it made me want to throw this book across the wall. Let's put it this way:1.) We have a butt-annoying heroine whose mouth I wanted to staple shut. Her "sass" just didn't cut it for me. Said "sass" made her sound like a little kid who has no knowledge about the world of mature teenagers. She was also incredibly ignora [...]

      (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)“The dude had had bird crap on his face minutes earlier. Where did he think that came from? Poop fairies?”This was a glossy story about a girl sucked into a Hollywood lifestyle that she never asked for.I felt quite sorry for Annie, she’d obviously been let down by her father in a way she never expected, and going to Hollywood with her mother to work as a make-up assist [...]

    4. Danielle (Love at First Page)

      3.5-4 starsGuys, this was super cute! Cheesy, predictable, and maybe not all that realistic, but sometimes that's exactly what a girl needs. Maybe in a different mood I would have rated this lower, but right now I'm too giddy to be overly critical. Who doesn't sometimes dream about impossible love stories for themselves? There's just something about the regular girl winning the heart of a teen movie star that can work magic, and that's exactly how I felt about Map to the Stars. Annie is a really [...]

      Map to the Stars by Jen MaloneHonestly… I’m never been a big fan of books with Hollywood themes. *grin*I think you changed that… well kinda.I just realized that Hollywood-themed YA ones are waaaay cooler than those Adult ones.*MC’s Corner*Note: Spoilers.• I hate long YA Contemporary books. So this, being that short is a plus points. Though… ironically I kinda wanted more. (You can slap my face now.)• I read the little biography of Jen Malone by the end of the book… and it says th [...]

      Map to the Stars is a very refreshing read. It wasn't what I expected, because there are hidden depths and sensibility to the story and the characters which I could honestly say that this book is authentic. It was all equal parts sassy, sweet and all around fun. So far, this is such a pleasant read about an ordinary teenager and a popular, hot teen celebrity. This book tugged my heart in different ways because this is quite unique and somehow different compared to the similar stories I've read b [...]

    7. Silvana [The Book Voyagers]

      Map to the Stars was such a fun, easy and summer-y read. It's perfect for a hot day in the beach or lying around the pool. It was great to watch (read) the characters' relationships with each other. Review will be up soon

      This won't be a long review. For some reason I just can't seem to put my feelings in words for this book, which sometimes happens for books. However, I still feel like I want to write something, so here goes. :)This book is a great book to read during the summer time. It features Hollywood, hot movie stars, a trip through Europe and quite a bit of romance. Annie was a pretty great character and I loved how she could just throw out words immediately. Sure, at times I wanted her to calmly think ab [...]

      Map To The Stars and me had a rough start, I didn't had very great expectations to it (I'm still to find a celebrity falls in love with a regular girl romance that makes me fall head over heels) but it seemed like a cute romance and light read. But right from the start we have shit ton of tropes trow at our faces and with very little to care it was hard to not DNFed it, still I continued and am glad for that decision since about 30% I started enjoying parts of this story.Ok, so my problems with [...]

    10. Marianne (Boricuan Bookworms)

      This review can also be found onThe Book Belles .I will precede my review by saying that Notting Hill is one of my all time favorite movies. Map to the Stars was sort of like a YA version of that movie. And I was absolutely in love with it. I loved that it was such a short and quick read because it was exactly what I needed at the moment. I needed a cute, fluffy, contemporary romance, and that’s exactly what I got.Map to the Stars will be annoying to some people because it’ll come off as hav [...]

    11. Rachel

      I read an early version of this book. Me, Him, and the Paparazzi would be GREAT for fans of Susane Colasanti, Kristin Rae and Lauren Morrill. Light, fluffy, funny and sweet - I can't WAIT to see the final version, read all the swoony scenes again, see what it is added because this book can only get better!, and hold the real book in my hands.

    12. Inês Gueifão

      This is exactly what my dreams (and nightmares, and dreams again) are made of FOR SURE. I have to say I did have a problem with Annie in the beginning, mostly because she 1) wasn't capable of understanding the slightest bit about a famous person's lifestyle and 2) she thought she was sooo much better for not being a fangirl. Sweetie. Let's be real. Everyone is a fangirl nowadays.

    13. Dayla

      Review also appeared on my blog: Book Addict 24-7I received a copy via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest reviewI will admit that I was a little hesitant to read Jen Malone's Map to the Stars. When it showed up on Edelweiss, I wasn't sure if I wanted to commit to reading this young adult contemporary romance, but I'm so glad I gave it a chance. While Malone's novel isn't anything extremely unique or heavy, it was the perfect read that I didn't know I needed. After all of the heavier books I've [...]

    14. Kezia Miller

      You know sometimes you just need that realistic but not really realistic romance to enjoy, this book is one of those. I thought it was super cute and adorable and I was glad that it ended how it did because I was scared the two people were never going to talk again to one another. When the main guy announced what he did at the end of the book I was like it took you long enough to say that. Sometimes guys can be not smart like that in real life and apparently that trait sometimes carries over int [...]

    15. Kelly Hager

      This is an absolutely adorable story. It reminds me a great deal of Famous in Love, but without the love triangle. (It's also a little fluffier, which is not a bad thing.)I love how Annie gets this job in Hollywood despite not caring at all about famous people or celebrity or anything. I mean, obviously she knew who Graham Cabot was (she didn't live in a cave or anything) but seriously could not care less about it at all. Their relationship is also really sweet (although I shared Annie's frustra [...]

    16. Morgan

      At only 241 pages, this is a very quick read. This is a very cute, contemporary, young adult book. I did not want to put this book down. It wasn't suspenseful, in fact it was kind of predictable, but it was just so dang cute. I love cheesy, teen romance stories so this book was right up my ally.I loved the romance between Graham and Annie. They were so cute together, and I loved all of the little quirks of their relationship. I really liked all of their adventures as well. They were being typica [...]

    17. Jennifer Green

      Although some parts of this book seemed rushed, I did enjoy the characters and their interactions. Well worth reading for anyone who, like me, is a sucker for the celeb-non romance.

    18. Lauren

      3.5 stars. I'm always a sucker for celebrity romances and this one is cute! I liked the beginning the best before all the drama started. But I was proud of both Annie and Graham at the end for all the growing up they did. Annie learning to exert herself and Graham becoming less dependent on the ideas of his 'team' and more authentic. I wish we could have seen a little more of how they made their relationship work in the future. But this ends well as it is. A sweet first book from Jen Malone! Lov [...]

    19. Pete Tarsi

      I don’t read a lot of YA romance novels.Let me clarify: I read a lot of YA books that have romance in them, and I’ve written flirty, romantic sequences in my own books. But I tend to gravitate more towards books that have something else (a contemporary issue or a fantasy/speculative/magical-realism element) driving the story with the romance being a subplot. Jen Malone’s Map to the Stars very well may be the first strictly YA romance novel I’ve ever read. After all, I’m a forty-somethi [...]

    20. Christina (A Reader of Fictions)

      3.5 starsIf you’ve been following along with this blog, you probably won’t be surprised by my obsession with romances where ordinary people get to hook up with hot movie stars. They can seriously betray me (*cough* Famous in Love *cough*), but I always come back to them. When Map to the Stars showed up on Edelweiss, I was powerless to resist it. After Song of Summer turned out to be so good, I was ready to give Epic Reads Impulse a shot because why not. I’m very glad I did, because my life [...]

    21. Jennifer

      I wish I could say that I liked Map To the Stars, but it fell so flat for me that I tripped over it on the sidewalk.  Terrible analogy but accurate all the same.Lemme just give you a list of all the reasons this book didn't work for me:Insta-love done poorly.  When Annie and Graham aka the Movie Star first meet, he assumes she's a fangirl that's managed to weasel her way into his hotel room before he gets there.  Their later interactions suggest that they just have so much spark they fired of [...]

    22. Dove

      This book was awesome!! I loved the characters, the storyline was great, the world-building was awesome, the book flowed sense, it was cute, and it made me really happy. The only issue I had with this book was that the storyline was a little predictable and I felt like it was a very typical storyline and most people have probably read a book like this already. A normal girl falls in love with a celebrity who loves her back because she wasn't a fangirl. Media and publicity adds drama and complica [...]

      Map to the Stars by Jen Malone is a YA contemporary romance ebook published by EpicReads Impulse. This book is about how Annie and her make up artist mom move across country to LA from their small town of Shelbyville, Georgia. After getting fired from another gig, the producer who discovered them lands them a spot on the worldwide tour of the biggest child-star-turned-movie-star Graham Cabot. Any girl on the planet would kill for a chance to be on this tour, except for Annie. She thinks all the [...]

    24. Leslie Anne ☆

      I would've given this a 5 star rating for Graham. lol Anyway, kidding aside, I gave a 4 star rating bc of some parts that I'm quite disappointed and confused like the part where she was really really furious at his dad that she said that she could never forgive him and that they moved across country. I mean, okay, you can get mad because I get the point of it and I'm even sad of what happened but her rage was beyond of what i think she should've reacted (but that's just me). I kinda get the part [...]

      Annie Shelton didn’t expect to be in LA the summer before her senior year in high school, but her parents have separated and her hairdresser mom’s skills caught the eye of a movie producer. Soon Annie and her mom aren’t simply in LA, they’re on tour with one of the hottest boy stars around, and Annie’s got more to oggle than the European architecture she came to see.Map to the Stars is a fun beach read made even better by the knowledge that Jen Malone worked as a movie studio publicist [...]

    26. Marielle Vergara

      Just the kind of book I need to read for a short while and escape reality. This book was a fun and light-hearted read that I wanted to last but at the same time appreciate that it doesn't drag on. It felt like Annie was me in every way possible as she ventures on La-La Land and the life of being around a movie star. And you know what? I fell hard for Graham too. Really sad to think that I'm swooning over a fictional character but Malone sure does pack in those 5 AUTHENTIC stars!

    27. Kristin

      This book was just what I needed! It's funny and adorable and funny and exciting and funny. I so enjoyed this little peek behind the movie scenes. SO MUCH FUN! I loved it!
