Still Reading... LA Candy by Lauren Conrad

When I started this book I was sure I would finish it really fast. Because it seemed like a good book. I wanted something light, something that I could read without thinking too much. So I asked my best friend if she could give me one of her Chick-Lit books.
I normaly do not read Chick-Lit.
Now I remember why.

Do not get me wrong, I'm not saying that this book is bad or badly written or that I do not care about the characters. I just don't care about the things that are happening too them. I haven't gotten that far. I'm only on page 85 of 326 so maybe all the drama is yet to come. And I love drama. But I'm sure I will never make it that far.
It's just not my genre. I like heroes and battles, dragons and tragedy. I want someone to fight and I want the world to be in danger. This book is about all those things, the characters need to be strong, they need to fight, and save their own little world. It's just not as interesting for me.

Well, it is still on my Currently Reading pile and I haven't given it back, so I guess I will end up giving it another try. Hopefully I will finish it and maybe, it will suprise me and I end up loving it.

Here is the summary from Goodreads:

Hot clubs, cute guys, designer...everything. Nineteen-year-old Jane Roberts can't wait to start living it up. She may be in L.A. for an internship, but Jane plans to play as hard as she works, and has enlisted her BFF Scarlett to join in the fun.
When Jane and Scarlett are approached by a producer who wants them to be on his new series, a "reality version of Sex and the City," they can hardly believe their luck. Their own show? Yes, please!
Soon Jane is TV's hottest star. Fame brings more than she ever imagined possible for a girl from Santa Barbara-free designer clothes, the choicest tables at the most exclusive clubs, invites to Hollywood premieres-and she's lapping up the VIP treatment with her eclectic entourage of new pals. But those same friends who are always up for a wild night are also out for a piece of Jane's spotlight.
In a city filled with people chasing after their dreams, it's not long before Jane wakes up to the reality that everyone wants something from her, and nothing is what it seems to be

Just the use of the phrase "BFF" in a book summary makes me dislike this one. It's just not my kind of book, I guess.
Have you read it? What are your thoughts on the topic?
Love and words KJ
