Showbiz/Idol/Acting Series

Showbiz/Idol/Acting Series
Stories about idols, actors, singers, dancers, and others from entertainment circle-style novels. Every item on the list is a series that I have already read or am planning to read.

Titles organized first by anything I have read already, then the ones To Be Read. Concentrating mostly on non-romance will add a few choice romance at the end of the list.
