A Little Light Reading

No cruise would be complete without a little light reading.
Bo and I enjoyed several hours of reading two or three nights on the ship. We found a little area on the back of the boat that was really quiet. We would go there watch the wake and the moon light bouncing off the sea and we would read. Sometimes I would get lost in the setting and other times I would read without even noticing it. My goal was to finish this book before we got off the ship. I cann't remeber if I finished it before we debarked or on the car ride home. Either way I really enjoyed this book and I plan on reading her next book.
I have never watched The Hills and only know of Lauren Conrad from E! News and The Soup. L.C.'s book would definitely be liked by teens and young adults. I actually saw one older lady on the ship ask me several times if I liked the book. I must have give her a questioning look because she said she had given it to her mother and she wanted to read it when she got back. I guess there is no age limit on the women who will read a Lauren Conrad book. My only thing is that I feel like I splurged because it was a hardback book. If you can wait until it comes out in paperback I would.
This book is not deep by any stretch of the imaginationa, but if you want some good enertaining reading this is a winner.
From Inside the Cover:

Los Angeles is all about the sweet life: hot clubs, cute guys, designer . . . "everything." Nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts can't wait to start living it up. She may be in L.A. for an internship, but Jane plans to play as hard as she works, and has enlisted her BFF Scarlett to join in the fun.
When Jane and Scarlett are approached by a producer who wants them to be on his new series, a "reality version of "Sex and the City,"" they can hardly believe their luck. Their own show? Yes, please

Soon Jane is TV's hottest star. Fame brings more than she ever imagined possible for a girl from Santa Barbara--free designer clothes, the choicest tables at the most exclusive clubs, invites to Hollywood premieres--and she's lapping up the VIP treatment with her eclectic entourage of new pals. But those same friends who are always up for a wild night are also out for a piece of Jane's spotlight.
In a city filled with people chasing after their dreams, it's not long before Jane wakes up to the reality that everyone wants something from her, and nothing is what it seems to be.
"L.A. Candy" is a deliciously entertaining novel about what it's like to come of age in Hollywood while starring in a reality TV show, written by a girl who has experienced it all firsthand: Lauren Conrad.
