About the Author
Growing up in Edmonton, Canada, a significant amount of Stephanie’s time was spent making up and acting out stories. She was studying to be an actress when she realized there weren’t any parts for women being written. So, Stephanie wrote herself a short screenplay just to be in it and quickly realized that writing was her true passion. She graduated from the University of Alberta with an English and Sociology degree and she also has a Bachelor of Motion Picture Arts (that’s a fancy term for Film School) from Red Deer College. After a fateful trip to Mexico in 2006, Stephanie decided to move to New York City to work in film development. A year later she went back home to write My Green House, a factual TV series. Stephanie moved to London in 2008 and aside from being obsessed with Eggs Benedict, Fruit Roll Ups and travelling, she also works in Children’s Television. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The Accidental Socialite is part comedy of errors, part life lesson. Paige is endearingly human, from tripping right into a famous athlete to a rather embarrassing incident during yoga, and she’s just as lost in the unexpected fame as most of us would be. From the surprise of being front-page news to stumbling her way through soirees with the rich, famous, and spoiled, every scene is a new (and not always great) adventure.
But while the lesson may be that living in a fame fishbowl is no picnic, the story remains a light-hearted, fun read, with lots of laugh out loud and even a few cringe-worthy moments. And between the laughs, Paige learns who she is, what’s important, and what doesn’t matter so much after all. If you’re looking for something fun and generally angst-free, pick it up. It’s a cute read that will play out in your mind like one of those movies you hit up on girls night.
***FicCentral received this book from YA Bound Book Tours for free in exchange for an honest review. Even so, we're far too opinionated to let a freebie influence our thoughts or the contents of the reviews we post here.
I liked Paige. She's vibrant and good natured. She's trying to deal with the mess she's found herself in. People are forming opinions about her character and all she's trying to do is stay on the straight and narrow while correcting everyone's misconceptions. I was hoping she'd find a good man while in London, but most of her dating adventures made me cringe! I had a hard time putting this book down just because I never knew what was going to happen next. Can I just say I love her co-workers? People like them make work fun.
I'm really hoping Stephanie Wahlstrom writes a sequel to this book. I would love to read more about Paige and her dating and non-dating adventures. If you're in the mood for laughs, this book is for you. I can't wait to see what Stephanie Wahlstrom has in store for us next!
I really enjoyed this book. I haven’t laughed this hard since I read the Chocolate Lovers series by Tara Sivec! It had me laughing within the first few pages…
Paige Crawford has graduated college and booked a one way ticket to London. Within her first day there she makes friends and already has been invited out that first night to hang out. Later that night while leaving The Box, the club that Jason (the cute guy she meets outside her Flat when she first arrives) invites her to, Paige, being drunk, trips and falls into the arms of a well known soccer player while the paparazzi are there to capture it on film. The next day she’s an insta-celeb, which ends up being both a blessing and a curse.
I really enjoyed this story, so much I couldn’t put it down to go to bed. Though, I have to warn you: The most disturbing thing I’ve ever read in a book happened at the beginning of this story. Though it doesn’t mean it didn’t have me laughing after going ‘OMGWTF?!’
I really hope that there will be a sequel to this story, because I would like to see what other shenanigans Paige will get herself in to.
If you’re looking for a book that will give you a good haha giggle snort, I definitely suggest you check this book out. ;)
The Accidental Socialite by Stephanie Wahlstrom is a hilarious romp through the London dating scene taken via a somewhat Bridget Jones-ish route. That is to say that anything that can go wrong for Paige will go wrong, but ultimately she comes out the other end better off, somehow.
A move to London from the US, knowing no-one and renting a dilapidated apartment we already know that Paige is ballsy. Dealing with the new-found fame caused my tripping into a footballers arms is the icing on the cake of disasters for paige.
If you loved Bridget Jones (movie or book) and/or love floundering Americans in England type stories then you will LOVE this one too. It's funny, light-hearted, very fade-to-black with the smexy stuff, but still a great read.
