L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad


Yes, I admit it - I am a fan of The Hills. I am on Team LC and therefore I picked up her book the other day and read it. I wanted to see which characters in the book resembled the characters on the "reality" show. I found it a bit hard to tell who represented who, but I did enjoy the book. Was I impressed by the writing or story line - no. But I will admit that it was not badly written and I did laugh a few times at the situations the characters found themselves in. Overall, I would rate this book as a solid C. Will I read the next 2 books (apparently, LC has signed a three book deal) by LC? Yes, I will read them and I will probably enjoy them, because I do enjoy my fluff reads now and again. And yes, L.A. Candy is most definitely a fluff read. All in all, its good to see that LC is doing something post Hills that is actually tantamount to work. I do admit that I think that The Hills will crumble without its main protagonist in the picture, but I will watch it to find out how the new LC will fare. Hmmm. Should be interesting t.v. no doubt.

You've gotta pick up a fluff read every now and then to cleanse the brain palate. My daughter is addicted to "The Hills."

You are so right! I must admit that fluff reads are a bit of a habit at times. I just loved the Shopaholic series and anything by Marian Keyes. How could I not? I even joined 2 book groups on goodreads that are about chick lit. As for The Hills, well, its not on at the moment, so I have been watching the Real Housewives. That show is just so over the top - its crazy!

I'm going to read this one too! Its meant for the YA category, did it seem YAish to you? I've been wondering.....

I've been Team LC since she was on Laguna Beach fighting with Kristen Cavelleri....

Love those shows.

Hey Holli! Yeah, I suppose it is a bit YAish, but I couldn't help getting into the book since I a Hills fan. I kept trying to see how this character could LC or Lo or whomever. Let me know who you think is who after you read it. Cheers!!
