Book Review - L.A. Candy

The first book I read on vacation was LA Candy by Lauren Conrad. I heard really great things about this book and thought it would be the perfect beach read. I was right! I really enjoyed this book. The book is fiction but definitely mimics the experiences Lauren had when she was on the reality show, The Hills. I was a big fan of The Hills when Lauren was on the show so I enjoyed the insight on what is was like filming the show...even if the book is fiction you know there is truth behind the "staged scenes" and "planned friends." I plan on reading the sequel Sweet Little Lies when I'm in Florida at the end of the month.

Here's a summary of the book from Amazon -

Los Angeles is all about the sweet life: hot clubs, cute guys, designer . . . everything. Nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts can't wait to start living it up. She may be in L.A. for an internship, but Jane plans to play as hard as she works, and has enlisted her BFF Scarlett to join in the fun.

When Jane and Scarlett are approached by a producer who wants them to be on his new series, a "reality version of Sex and the City," they can hardly believe their luck. Their own show? Yes, please!

Soon Jane is TV's hottest star. Fame brings more than she ever imagined possible for a girl from Santa Barbara—free designer clothes, the choicest tables at the most exclusive clubs, invites to Hollywood premieres—and she's lapping up the VIP treatment with her eclectic entourage of new pals. But those same friends who are always up for a wild night are also out for a piece of Jane's spotlight.

In a city filled with people chasing after their dreams, it's not long before Jane wakes up to the reality that everyone wants something from her, and nothing is what it seems to be.

L.A. Candy is a deliciously entertaining novel about what it's like to come of age in Hollywood while starring in a reality TV show, written by a girl who has experienced it all firsthand: Lauren Conrad.

Thank you for reviewing this! I really wanted to read it but was afraid to be dissapointed. I also just finished reading Lovely Bones, which I see on your side bar that you are reading. It is such a good book! Enjoy!!
