This was THE pornographic novel in my coming of age story It was the only thing I had access to that was mildly explicit when I was a throbbing tween, so the spine was broken and the dirty pages dogeared I d probably cringe if I read it today, but it has a special place in my heart and in my pants.
Did every girl in the world steal this from her mother just read the sex parts and then sneak it back on the shelf I feel vindicated that most of the Good Reads reviews say the same thing Totally trashy and awesome I ve been wanting to re read this for a while, just to see if it s still as shocking to me Probably not.
Really, I could put any book by JK here I have read her entire oeuvre but Scruples was the book that stole my heart An overweight, awkward, ostracized ugly duckling who sheds her weight, sheds her billionaire husband, finds her power and wants to run the world Billy Hunnenwell Ikehorn Orsini Elliott 4 ever.
second review well i read it, or close enough and the answer to the motivating question should i read it again no this is what happens when a book is easily downed from the library requires no effort, no critical thought but i did read all but skipping through the last fifty pages by which time i have a good idea that perhaps this need not be read onceis is very much a book of the materialistic 80s there is a cumulative effect of exhaustion from so much proudly recounted names, where the cars ar [...]
I loved Judith Krantz s books when I was in my twenties and still find anything contra to my own culture and old traditional values exciting In fact, we raved about her books I m not rating it since I ve read it so long ago and might have a totally different experience if I reread it.I just wanted to add them to my book experiences.
total trash, but so worth it decadent 80 s excess, fashion, sex, love, business has it all.A guilty pleasure, trashy beach book you cant put down
I ve been comparing many novels to SCRUPLES and yet still no posteaze factor 2016
2009 Boy, Scruples has it s fair share of explicit sex in all thinkable variety Usually an overdose ruins a romance for me But when I bought a grubby, well thumbed copy in a small second hand store ten years ago, I got addicted for a few months and had to read all the other Krantz books as well ploughing facinatedly through the high society glamour and relationship drama and steaminess Though, each time I see shelves tagged with guilty pleasure I immediately think of Scruples and the rest of tho [...]
Trashy Trashy Trashy Love it Put on the shelf of books to read when your brain is tired and needs some good old smut An even better option for such a mindset Valley of the Dolls
Right off the bat I can say this was not as dirty or trashy as it was hyped to be nor was it memorable I think the main waste of potential was Billy as a protagonist She was by far the most captivating character and the easiest to sympathize with for her humble, insecure beginnings but her page time was in competition with like five other mediocre characters The entire time I was reading I kept asking myself why Why make a book about this modern Cinderella type woman and her boutique and then de [...]
This is one of those books that teenage girls pass back and forth so they can all read the sex parts It s crazy Crazy good.
Oh my god, this is trash at it s very best This book taught me what glory holes are Life changing
Well I thought this was going to be fun than it ended up being Hyped up as a sexy, lavish romance in Hollywood, where everyone is so rich they could never go broke and everyone is having sex with everyone else And really, that s exactly what you get, and it was kind of depressing, to be totally honest If this is anything like what fame and excessive wealth are actually like, I m incredibly glad I have neither.
This was one of those forbidden books that I snuck into the house and read under the covers so my Mom would not catch me reading it to be fair to her, she never really censored me per say, but would have been unhappy that her 13 14 year old daughter was reading such an adult novel I do not remember a lot about this book, I will admit I believe I liked it at the time and I know I checked it out than once.
BEVERLY HILLS GLITZ GLAM three compelling main characters, intersecting plot lines, insights into the film industry and the world of high fashion a few too many minor characters, endlessly rambling descriptions that devolve into tedious tangents, the trashy sex scenes were a bit much Overall a very entertaining glimpse into the bicoastal world of wealth, power, haute couture.
Oooh, boy, I have been in the mood for some trashy books lately So I thought it was time to read some Scruples Especially since there might be a movie or show soon Gotta beat the rush And what did I think Yes, it s trash But most of it is pretty good trash We have an awkward, overweight girl from an upper crust Boston family who goes to Paris and becomes a swan, as one only can in Paris a California boy, who believes in beautiful women taking beautiful pictures of them, and sleeping with them, w [...]
I knew I d love this book I d read Till We Meet Again years ago after spontaneously remembering the miniseries and wondered why I d never read Scruples So basically Judith Krantz described the store exactly the way I picture Anthropologie Coincidence Love it.Also, how could it end like that I mean, it s the perfect HEA, but you just want it to keep going Of course I ll get to the sequel one day But this is how to end a book with a HEA Judith Krantz probably didn t even think to write a sequel un [...]
This is an oldie but goodie I felt like it was a dirty pleasure, thumbing through pages of sex, profanity, power, socialitesI m going to have to get a trenchcoat and sunglasses and hit the bookstore to get Judith Krantz perhaps.I loved the characters I loved the use of the C word in a positive, lusty light as well as a derogatory way that women today are dramatically horrified to hear.My only dislike was Billy s true path to happiness She forgets her birth control pills for 3 months because her [...]
I read this book when I was 11 years old And it would seem that I read it because of the sex To be honest, the real draw for me was the glamour Krantz tells a story of a world I was fascinated by at that time It was about money and fashion, fame and glamour I don t really remember the sex scenes, but I do remember Krantz s descriptions of outfits, interiors, store merchandise and scenes Her later novels became something of a joke, and eventually became Lifetime movies starring Valerie Bertinelli [...]
Although Judith Krantz displays very limited knowledge about South America by committing mistakes such as saying Buenos Aires is in Brazil, and that people speak Spanish in Rio, I have to admit she was able to create a very involving and interesting story about the world of fashion and cinema in Beverly Hills She is indeed a writer of sex and shopping as it was said before, but also a writer who really knows the meaning of reading for fun Her book is highly entertaining and addictive, her charac [...]
I know, chee zy, Schmaltzy with a capital S but, this book was one great read when I read it Really entertaining and it spoke to my fascination with all things glamorous when I read it as a teenager I want to re read this book asap I still have one thing I related to and consequently learned in this book in play today Wear black with cleavage and you re properly accessorized Simple It s kind of naughty, too It s on my top 10 list Cheap and tawdry, and so alluring.
I found this book on my parents bookshelf when I was about 12 I could not put it down I had never seen heard read anything like it, and I think that I owe a lot of my sex education to this book LOL I should go back and read it again as an adult and see what I think of it, and how much my pre teen mind took away from it aside, of course, from the naughty bits My mom found it under my bed and about killed me Hahahaha God, this book has memories
This is one of the books we can blame for my lifelong passion for commercial fiction I fell in love with this book when I was in high school, and I still think Billy Ikehorn is one of the great characters in the genre In my next life, I plan to study abroad in France and marry a rich guy or several and own lots of department stores.
Read this years and years ago I remember that I loved it and red it than once I think I was 15 16 at that time so reading all those books Harold Robbins comes to mind where you read about sex I devoured it So yes my taste has changed over the years, but for the above reasons I am giving this 5 stars.
One of the ultimate guilty pleasures of the eighties Probably quite bad, but hard to resist all the same Judith Kranz was the queen of glitzy trash, and somehow she knew how to make it work This one, and Princess Daisy, are great fun in the same way bad campy movies can be Just don t take them seriously And enjoy the ride.
Yeah, OK, go ahead, mock me I devoured this in college.
Read this book so many times back in the day, I think I just might re read it for fun
Quintessential beach trash God, I love this book.
This was a perfect summer re read, mostly Toward the end I felt like I d had way too much of a delicious sweet.
THIS WAS SO CONSTANTLY RIDICULOUS AND SO GOOD FOR MEEEEEEEEE
