So there is one benefit to being home sick - I actually read two books yesterday! (Yup - 633 pages!) The type of books you need to read after "The Sweetness" too...I got through two of the L.A. Candy books - "L.A. Candy" and "Sweet Little Lies" - by reality TV star Lauren Conrad and have to admit that they're pretty addictive.
When I first started reading yesterday morning, I didn't think I would make it through the first book (let alone two). With an opening paragraph that reads, "Jane Roberts leaned against her dresser, studying the way her white silk nightie looked against her sun-kissed skin. Her loose blonde curls cascaded softly over her shoulders as she pretended not to be interested in the guy in her bed." I mean, come on, could you add any more cheesy adjectives to the sentences? Even for me, a proud cheese-lover, this was a little much, but it did turn out to be a cheesy dream that the narrator was having and she actually wakes up next to some guy who reeks of armpits and pot (her roommate's hook-up who couldn't find his way back to the roommate's room after using the washroom!!!)
Since I actually was a devoted "Hills" fan, it was fun to read about what production is like behind-the-scenes of these "reality" shows; however, I would recommend these books to anyone as a great escape from reality and maturity!
I'm just happy I ordered all three in the series together - I have one more to go! Don't worry, I'll keep you posted!
