Book Review | L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad

Title: L.A. Candy
Author: Lauren Conrad

About the Book:

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.

My Review:


I am a HUGE fan of The Hills so I couldn’t wait to read Lauren Conrad’s first book! I was a bit curious how good of a writer should be and I have to say, I am very impressed! From the first chapter, I literally devoured this book.

I found it interesting that the storyline seemed to be based on Lauren’s own experiences as a reality tv star. It’s a world so different from my own with all the excitement of being a star. Maybe deep down inside I always wanted to be a reality star…ok maybe not but the lifestyle is very interesting!

I liked the parts when Jane was at work and her screw-ups were so funny! I really liked her character. Madison was something to be desired and the author did a great job in making me really not like her at all! She’s the kind of friend you want to stay away from and I kept wanting to jump in and warn Jane about her.

If you are looking for a fun and fast read, then L.A. Candy is perfect for you to pick up. I can’t wait to read the next in the series and see what happens to Jane and her friends.
