Detailed Review Summary of Gorgeous by Paul Rudnick

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Being Rebecca opens her up to a world of new experiences, and the potential to use her fame for good, but everyone warns her that there will be a cost to that fame. Thank you for an excellent novel. It thinks its cute and funny when its not and instead of coming across like witty social commentary like I think it’s trying to, it comes off as annoying.

She must fall in love and marry within the year. You could totally tell that they were based on a a certain other royal family maybe a real one? Like I said before, the characters were hilarious and lovable. I haven’t read a book like this one in a long time.

The Spoiler Queen: Gorgeous (Paul Rudnick)

Overall I’d say that this book was pretty cute. Rundick one of those wild and kooky rides that is dunked into enough reality that you go along with it.


It didn’t really happen but Apr 30, Mandi Alva rated it liked it Shelves: Rudnick managed to bring us a cast of characters that are so wonderful, I dare you not to fall in love with them. Nothing about this book makes sense, but when you reach ppaul end you’ll feel like you read something special. I’m writing this review right now and even though there were numerous problems and I have some rage filled moments, I know that I’m just going to forget about this one probably within two weeks time.

But this was alright because his love interest was much more of a dork herself. But not every book has to be about you or me, though this is one of the aspects that made me wonder, “why Y.

Sure enough, the first dress she puts on — a hot red number — does just that. Some content might offend sensitive readers, but no more so than what one might overhear in the average American public school hallway. Turns out he knew Becky’s mom when she was young and a beautiful model. January 11th, 16 19 Jan 13, It is not unique or different.

Or, she can go back to her trailer in the middle of nowhere America and back to her not so pretty life. It’s so full of dirty words, innuendo and other adult themes that I would be careful about letting younger teens read it, but needless to say, the confusing YA rating didn’t get in the way of my enjoyment of the book!


I really didn’t know what was going to happen even when I was most of the way through the book.

This book barely gets a regular format review. And it wasn’t like sugar, which is actively bad for you. First of all, I kinda fell in love with this Prince of England myself. Spoilers ahead and I want to say I haven’t enjoyed a book so very much in such a long time. The Prince was an interesting character.

Gorgeous Book Summary and Study Guide

Gorgeous is well-padded with excellent supporting characters, all quirky and unique. Tom Kelly, Lila, and Drake died? Aug 13, Acacia rated it ruenick was ok. I will certainly be looking forward to more YA from author Paul Rudnick.

And yes, I know, satire. The chemistry between them was real but the appearance wasn’t. It had my kind of characters and my kind of humor.

If this is going to teach self-involved girls about social responsibility, more power etc. I have no idea and I don’t care.

That means I read it again and again. But I could tell she was dazzled, by the show and the city and by being away from home for the first time.
