The LitChicks: LA CANDY by Lauren Conrad

This week it's Liesl's turn to tell us about one of her favorite books. Her recommendation is:

LA CANDY by Lauren Conrad

Oh boy! High school is a lot crazier than Iexpected but...I'm back!!!!

I read this book when it first came out and was on the new book shelf at the library. I honestly wasn't expecting much from a celebrity author (sorry celebrities!) but was pleasantly surprised. This was my kinda book! I love girly fun books.

This book is about two girls named Jane and Scarlett. They move to LA together and are roommates. Jane has an internship with a prestigious event planer named Fiona Chen. Scarlett however, is in LA to attend U.S.C. They are spotted at a club and offered a part in a new reality T.V show L.A. Candy, but they realize along the way that being a T.V. star is not what it's cracked up to be and that they don’t necessarily like it.

This book was a mix of a lot of genres. It was girly, but was fun, it had a little romance (every book has to have a little(:) and it had drama... it's based on life in L.A. I really liked the character of Jane. She had high priorities and didn't - you know - find a random guy in the club and a hotel room and go at it. She had a good job and knew what she wanted to do with her life. She didn't let the other people influence her. She was cautious and I think that Jane and Scarlett were a good personality match. Scarlett was very outgoing whereas Jane was reserved and kind of shy. Scarlett was willing to try new things and Jane stuck to the tried and true. This was a good book. Congrats Lauren! Can't wait to read the second book.

On this date: In 1976, the movie version of Steven King's Carrie debuts.
