Book Club Friday #14

Hey y'all. Today I'm linking up with Heather and Katie for Book Club Friday.


I LOVE this link-up because it's such a fun way to find new books to read, and see what kind of taste other bloggers have in books.

This week, I'm reviewing Sweet Little Lies by Lauren Conrad.


This is the next book after L.A. Candy, which I reviewed here.




Book description from GoodReads:


Jane Roberts was the average girl next door until she and her best friend, Scarlett Harp, landed their own reality show, "L.A. Candy." Now the girls have an all-access pass to Hollywood's hottest "everything." But there's more to life on camera than just parties and shopping. . . .


When racy photos of Jane are leaked to the press, she finds herself at the center of a tabloid scandal. She turns to her co-star Madison Parker for help, unaware that Madison is scheming behind the scenes. She might be Jane's shoulder to cry on, but does Madison really have Jane's back?


Scarlett's working on a scandal of her own. She's fallen for someone who's strictly off-limits--which means Scarlett has a big secret to keep . . . from the "L.A. Candy" cameras, the paparazzi staking out her apartment, even from her best friend.


Of course, nothing stays secret for long for the stars of the newest hit TV series, and all this drama couldn't be better for ratings. But can Jane survive another season in the spotlight?


My thoughts?


Same as with the first book, I thought these books would be a lot more interesting. Don't get me wrong, they are fun, light-hearted, quick reads, but I expected it to be more gripping, I guess. I had a lot of people ask me if the characters related to those in The Hills, and I didn't really watch that show religiously, so I can't answer that. I can see how they maybe would though? Another 3 stars from me!


Friend me on GoodReads - it's so addicting!

I would agree but Lauren's books are much more readable than the Kardashian one so don't bother with that book.

Katie said...

I read these books last year at the beach, and they were GREAT beach reads. If I had read them at home when I wanted something more substantive, I might have felt the same way you did.

Kathryn said...

Definitely going on my list!

I'm not really expecting much from these books sitting on my kindle haha

I have read all the LC books lol. To me they are a good thing to have laying around for after you read something really intense. Right now I am reading Generation Kill and it's a true story about some Marines at the start of the war. So needless to say I will need something light after that!

Also, I watched both Laguna Beach & The Hills and I didn't see many parallels. I think maybe more the tech side of it but that's it.

Heather said...

These books aren't the best work of fiction I've ever read, but I enjoyed them :).

Megan said...

Sometimes light reads are nice, but not when I'm wanting to really get into something!

Life With Lauren said...

I have not read any of them! Might have to hold off:)

Heather said...

I think I'm going to skip these based on your review!

I really liked the series, and I just finished The Fame Game which is a spin off with Madison Parker's character.

I saw some parallels with The Hills, but not enough for any of her co-stars to want to sue her lol. I felt that Madison was supposed to represent Heidi somewhat in the plastic surgery aspect and only caring about fame.
