In L.A. CANDY, nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts moves to L.A. and unexpectedly becomes the star of a reality T.V. show. With fame comes wealth, hot clothes and even hotter love interests -- and Jane′s lapping it all up with her eclectic entourage of pals who are always up for a wild night out and the chance to get a piece of her spotlight. But soon Jane realizes everyone wants something from her, and nothing is what it seems to be.
L.A. CANDY is a fast-paced, honest and entertaining fictional account of 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.

The plot of L.A. Candy was pretty good. It was interesting but didn't have that wow factor. I haven't read a book based on L.A. life so it was a new experience. This book had a really fast pace, but had a few slow moments. Overall the plot and pace was very good but the writing wasn't the best.

The characters were pretty well done. There were a lot of different personalities and seemed to portray L.A. perfectly. I really did not connect to any of the characters and didn't really understand some motives in the story. The one thing I really didn't like was how Jane kept moving from one guy to another. It didn't really make sense to me.    

The ending was a major cliffhanger. I did not see this coming. I wish it ended on a prettier note, but all in all the ending was pretty good.

My Favorite Part: I guess the setting. I've always wanted to go to L.A. and this gave me a nice taste of it. 

Do I recommend this book? Yes, it's a fast summer read.
Will I be reading the sequel? Yes because of the MAJOR cliffhanger! 

Thanks for reading! I love comment, so comment please! I really enjoy hearing what people think and love getting some recommendations!
