Her first book LA Candy was a bestseller. Now her second book Sweet Little Lies which literally just hit shelves 5 minutes ago is another bestseller. Lauren Conrad is now a two time bestselling author...

Said Lauren of the quick success of her novels:

"It's so gratifying for my second book to be so successful and it was so fun to write! The characters were already developed so I really enjoyed the process so much more this time around. All the characters have become like my friends now. I just sat in bed writing and it was the best process.”

So Lauren Conrad is now talking “writing process”. Violent, I feel violent. You?

Sweet Little Lies continues the story of Lauren’s character “Jane Roberts” as she...

Oh f-ck, I honestly don’t care. Conrad’s drivel is being consumed while great books are virtually ignored. So let’s make this about other books. Good books.

Like the one I keep yapping about The Outcast by Sadie Jones. And another of my favourites from 2009 This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper which I keep meaning to review and always run out of time. My book club’s current selection is Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. Frank as in Frank Lloyd Wright. SO good. And I’ve just started and am greatly enjoying Todd Babiak’s brand new Toby: A Man which Quill and Quire just compared to Ricky Gervais and Woody Allen.

As for Lauren Conrad – she was at a book signing the other day in Miami. They actually show up and ask her to sign their copies.

I hate people.
