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.
