Review by Marina on 3rd November, 2009
4 stars "Great read!"

The story is about two girls who are randomly chosen to be on their own reality tv show, which comes as no suprise. It provides a behind the scenes look at what it might have actually been like for LC on reality shows like Laguna Beach and The Hills.

The book is a good read for anyone, from teenagers to adults. For those who aren't a fan of reading its a great book because the chapters are short, plot understandable. For those who read often, it will provide a quick and enjoyable read.

It is definately a must-read for all Laguna Beach/The Hills fans!

Review by Ashleigh on 29th November, 2009
5 stars "The Hills & Laguna Beach Fans"

This book is great, and would appear to be a reflection of the life that Lauren Conrad has led so far on the Hills and Laguna Beach. An excellent book, and gives the reader an indication of what a young life is like when you are always being followed by cameras. Would highly recommend.

Review by Aria on 12th December, 2009
4 stars "Interesting read"

LA Candy is a great summer read. The story provides the reader with a great insight on exactly how real reality tv is. Written by Lauren Conrad, a woman who spent five year of her life in front of a camera, she spills a lot of the secrets behind the drama of her life under the guise of this fictional novel. Well worth bringing to the beach for light reading during the holiday break!

Review by Bridget on 16th December, 2009
5 stars "great to get the behind the scenes"

this book gives you quite an insight into how LC would have felt during the Hills, and the invasion that being a celebrity, can have on yourself, your friends and your relationships. I look forward to reading the next in the series, and getting more of that insider view. Although this book is not autobiographical, Im sure there are some elements that are, as the story is very similar to what is known of LC and laguna beach/the hills! great read tho, and you keep wondering whether one of the key characters might quit reality!!

Review by Tessa on 5th October, 2011
5 stars "great!"

This book is the first book in the L.A. candy series written by Lauren Conrad (yes she is one of the girls on ‘The Hills’) It's a fantastic read and it's got a great plot. Once i started reading it, it was very hard to put it down! it's gripping, funny and full of chaotic experiences.

I would reccommend this series to the ‘teen’ age group

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.


In this flawed but fun novel, 19-year-old Jane Roberts, new to Los Angeles, and her best friend Scarlett are discovered by a producer who wants to cast them in a “reality version of Sex and the City.” Jane (who is, in the producer’s eyes, “fresh, innocent, vulnerable. Perfect”) and Scarlett (“a gorgeous brainiac”) jump at the chance to star in L.A. Candy, alongside two other girls: “spoiled, rich heiress” Madison and “loveable ditz” Gaby. Immediately famous, they enjoy new apartments, designer clothes and easy access to L.A. hot spots. Readers get a behind-the-scenes look at the production of a reality show, including how supposedly spontaneous scenes are set up and shot and reshot, presumably inspired by debut author Conrad’s own experiences on The Hills. Jane, who “no longer thought about an outfit as being complete without a mike under her clothes, taped to her skin,” predictably becomes the breakout star of the show and learns the high price of fame. The climactic cliffhanger ending and lack of resolution hurt the book’s ability to stand on its own, but this guilty pleasure should leave readers eager for more. Ages 14-up. Publishers Weekly
