L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad

"L.A. Candy" by Lauren Conrad 

 “Los Angeles is all about hot clubs, cute guys, designer... everything. Nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts and her BFF, Scarlett, can’t wait to start living it up. And when a TV producer wants them to star in a “reality version of Sex and the City”, they can hardly believe their luck. Their own show? Yes please!

Soon Jane is television’s hottest star and she’s lapping up the VIP treatment with her entourage of new pals. But those same friends are also angling for a piece of her spotlight. In a  city filled with people chasing their dreams, it’s not long before Jane realizes that everyone wants something from her and nothing is what it seems to be.”
I’m not going to lie, when I first heard that Lauren Conrad was writing a book I laughed and rolled my eyes thinking, “Lauren Conrad?!? Lauren Conrad?!? What does she have? A degree in fashion! How is a degree in fashion supposed to help you write a book?!?” I mean, I loved “The Hills”, it was a good little drama on MTV chronicling Lauren and her friends lives as they tried to make it in the fashion world and whatnot, but it was completely mindless (*cough, cough, Speidi anyone?*)...

So imagine my surprise when I read her first book, “L.A. Candy” and I find that I actually quite enjoy it and she might be a pretty okay author (note pretty good author- she ain’t no Rachel Vincent or Cassandra Claire- yet). And now as I write this review I really cannot think of any complaints I had of the book, well, except for the fact that it had a cliff-hanger ending- you will come to learn that I loathe cliff-hanger endings. Seriously, if I pay for the full price of a book I expect a full/ complete story to come out of it ;).

I think that it was very successful at fulfilling its goals: appeal to young girls: check, putting the author on New York Times Best Seller List: check, increase Lauren’s popularity as she was no longer going to be on “The Hills” anymore, check. And all I have to think is, "Good for her! Lauren has not been able to be successful as a fashion designer, reality TV star, but now as an author".

And you know what? I think that I would actually recommend the book! And... *drum roll please*... I do think I will continue on with this series. Yes, yes, this is as shocking to me (who was somewhat dreading reading this book) as I am sure it is shocking to you since I am slightly bashing of "mindless teen girl novels".

Rating: 3/5

PS. Another black-haired female (Scarlett) to add to the list ;)
