12 days of reading: 'party girl' by rachel hollis

As 2015 comes to a close, I'm looking back at and celebrating some of my favorites reads from the year via the 12 Days of Reading. Enjoy!

Day 9: Party Girl by Rachel Hollis

I'm so glad I read Rachel Hollis's debut novel Party Girl. It's a fun, fast-paced read with a quirky and adorkable leading lady who is easy to love.

About the Book
Landon Brinkley’s dreams are all coming true. She’s landed an internship with the fabulous Selah Smith, event planner for the Hollywood elite, taking her from small-town Texas to the bright lights of LA. Landon soon finds herself in a world in which spending a million dollars on an event—even a child’s birthday party—is de rigueur and the whims of celebrity clients are life-and-death matters. At first, the thrill of working on A-list parties and celebrity weddings is enough to get Landon through the seventy-five-hour workweeks and endless abuse at the hands of her mercurial boss. But when the reality of the business reveals itself, she’s forced to make a choice: do whatever it takes to get ahead, or stay true to herself.

Drawing on the author’s real-life experiences as an event planner to the stars, Party Girl takes readers on an adventure among Hollywood’s most beautiful—and most outrageous—people, revealing the ugly side of Hollywood’s prettiest parties. 

After following Rachel Hollis and her super fantastic website on Facebook this year, I *finally* read Party Girl this month, and it was such a fun experience.

Landon is a small town girl with big L.A. dreams. She was so relatable and driven that I instantly found myself rooting her on to personal and professional success. I was caught up in her world through the vivid and often laugh-out-loud descriptions of the drama surrounding a fab party planner. Throw in some awesome besties and a hunky love interest to crush on, and this book had everything I could want.

I'll definitely be checking out the rest of Hollis's books. And if you aren't following her on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram you totally should. Rachel's posts are so positive and fun, I always look forward to seeing her in my feed.
