I loved everything about this book From the remarkable characters, the inside scoop of the party planning business, the laugh out loud humor, the literary references, and to the little dash of romance There were many times during the course of reading where It felt very Devil Wears Prada except we re in the event coordination world And I just so happen to love The Devil Wears Prada so it was A Ok for me Can t wait to start book 2 My computer decided to take its time to install a huge update A whole working day no kidding Then I didn t have internet So, this book definitely begged me to be listened to, instead of working, and I didn t mind.This was good I don t know if I ever read a romance like this Not a single thing made me annoyed Maybe it s because this is not written by an author who usually writes romances And the feelings were so familiar for a nobody who wants to start a career and proves herself I mean, we don t save the world, but we all deserve to have our precious moment after finding non published Harry Potter copy for Devil who wears Prada. #READ DOWNLOAD á Party Girl (The Girls, #1) ⚪ Landon Brinkley Is Making Her Dreams Come True After Years Of Poring Over Glossy Photos Of Celebrity Parties In People And US Weekly, She S Landed Her Holy Grail An Internship With The Fabulous Selah Smith, Event Planner To The Hollywood Elite Moving From Small Town Texas To Los Angeles, Landon Finds Herself In A World In Which Spending A Million Dollars On An Event Even For Kids Birthdays Is De Rigueur The Thrill Of Working On A List Parties And Celeb Weddings Is Enough To Get Her Through TheHour Workweeks, The Nightmare Of A Multi Day Film Festival, And Abuse At The Hands Of A Mercurial Boss LA Is Full Of Opportunity For Fame, Fortune And Even Love But Confronted With The Seamy Realities Of The Business, She Is Forced To Make A Choice Do Whatever It Takes To Get Ahead, Or Stay True To HerselfA Roman A Clef In The Vein Of The Devil Wears Prada, PARTY GIRL Draws On The Author S Real Life Experience For An Exclusive Behind The Scenes Look At The Celebrity Obsessed World Of Event Planning From The Party Habits Of America S Favorite Underage Singer To The Worst Bridezilla Of All The Kind That Graces The Cover Of Your Favorite Magazine , PARTY GIRL Reveals The Ugly Side Of Hollywood S Prettiest Parties Now this was a great surprise I wish I could remember how it crossed my radar but all I know is I tagged it will probably regret I suppose I should have a flip side delightfully unexpected.I liked Landon almost from the start She s a go getter who isn t afraid to do a tough job or to deal with tough people It helps that she knows what she wants and that she s pursuing that dream with all the vigor she possesses And that means doing her very best as an intern for the premier event planner in LA There sthan a little Devil Wears Prada here the movie, not the book I couldn t stand The big difference is that Landon knows what she wants so it isn t so much a fish out of water story Oh, and that Selah doesn t have that touch of mastery that made Miranda Priestly so intriguing despite her awful behavior.The story really does turn on whether you like Landon, though I can t imagine not doing so, but the story is muchof her growth and maturity than it is anything else The romance, while satisfying and well handled, is a side feature, though it caps the novel nicely I hesitate to bring in the author biography, though the depth of detail of event planning is well appreciated You can see that she knows that space Fortunately, she s a very talented writer as well, so that depth is presented entertainingly and solely as it pertains to the characters and story i.e no awkward expositive lumps or showing off or boring details nobody but industry insiders would care about Also, now I think on it, she has an equally light touch dealing with the crazy that surrounds celebrity culture the waters that high profile event planning swims in What could have been exploited for humor or plot twists or pandering was mostly the backdrop it needed to be for the story to work as Landon s journey.So yeah, solid story, excellent characters, good plot I was thoroughly entertained and this deserves every one of the four stars.A note about Steamy No steam It bears a mention as I m tagging this New Adult and there s a sexy times expectation with that genre. I loved this book so much I just didn t want to put it down The time I did was because adulting was inescapable lol Review will be up soon on the blog This book had some of my favorite things A strong heroine that finally discovers her own strength Humor Romance Strong female friendships and hot guys But most of all I love that the audio is read by the author The accent is real, ya ll, and I love it An adorable romance Although there is a lot of alcohol consumption there is very little strong language and no sex. What an awesome debut novel from Rachel Hollis I immediately fell in love with the synopsis and signed up to review this book for its Release Day Launch It s such a wonderful feeling when the book you re excited about reading lives up to all your expectations Ms Hollis will grab your attention from the very beginning and keep you hooked right up to the end And you will love each and every minute of it In Party Girl we re introduced to Landon Brinkley, a Texas native who has relocated to LA with the dream of making it big as an events planner Armed with her mantra, I am strong I am smart I am courageous , her savings account and a teaching degree to fall back on she s ready to give it her all and make this change work Working for her idol Selah Smith of SSE Selah Smith Events is a dream come true, even if it is an unpaid internship It s just the right amount of motivation she needs to keep her goals in perspective However, Landon finds herself quickly changing in order to fit in and make her life easier It s only temporary right She s just gotta put in the time and gain the experience needed to start her own business And failure is not an option Although she quickly realizes Selah isn t the person she thought she was and that SSE is muchcomplicated and nerve wracking than her previous events planning job, she sticks with it determined to impress her boss and make a name for herself I absolutely loved Landon with her big hair, love of all things pink colorful, and Texas charm She s by far one of the funnest characters I ve come across in a while She s living or fictional proof that you can take the girl out of Texas, but you can t take Texas out of the girl I really admired that fact that she s so hardworking and determined I was standing in her corner cheering her on from the very beginning because that s the kind of deep connection you re able to make with her Landon s character is very real and easy to relate to Miko, or Jin as she s known in the workplace, is an absolute life saver She takes Landon under her wing right off the bat because, unlike all of her other jaded co workers, Miko remembers what it was like to start from the bottom I loved her quirky personality and all of the book references She proves herself to be an amazing friend every step of the way.Max, Landon s roommate, is definitely unique She hides behind a tough exterior but inside she s a softy I kinda felt bad every time she revealed a new fact about herself that Landon didn t know because when asked why she never mentioned it before, her response would always be, You didn t ask There s muchto this girl than meets the eye It takes a bit of digging and an unfortunate accident to get to the bottom of it, but it s well worth the wait because, like Miko, she s an amazing friend Throw in some hot guys, workplace drama, a drunken girls night out or two , incredible fashion and an awesomely witty writing style and you ve got yourself one hell of a fun read If you loved The Devil Wears Prada and watch The Wedding Planner every chance you get not that I do that or anything then you will absolutely adore this book You get a behind the scenes look at what really happens, or happened, at an events planning company The writing is absolutely flawless and will have you laughing out loud at some points I m seriously impressed by the incredible attention to detail Ms Hollis literally paints a picture in your mind of each scene as it unfolds I would highly recommend this book and can totally see myself rereading it time and time again I was lucky enough to get my hands on this little baby early during the Christmas holiday, to be exact And I let myself indulge It was perfect Everything I needed in a frothy holiday read I loved The Devil Wears Prada and Confessions of a Shopaholic and this book has the same wit, charm, and dizzying, can t resist peeking, behind the scenes glimpse into the world of fame and fortune from a party planners perspective Women s Fiction at it s finestor funnest I loved it Watch out LA, Landon Brinkley is here and she s belting out every word of this song like her life depends on itThis was a chick lit style story about a girl who desperately wanted to be a party planner, even if it killed her.Landon was a nice person, which was a bit of a problem for her in the harsh world of party planning that she found herself in I have to say that I was impressed with the way she stuck with it though, even when things got tough, and was determined to earn herself a place as a party planner, no matter how tough it was.The storyline in this followed Landon as she started working at SSE a company which planned parties, and was totally thrown in at the deep end She was literally expected to understand lingo that she had no idea about, and she worked so hard to try and do a job that was like swimming with sharks There was a touch of romance in this, and the course of this romance didn t run smoothly, although this wasto do with the job than anything The ending to this was pretty good, and it was nice to see what Landon had accomplished after all that she s been through.6 out of 10 4.5 stars I ve been working my way through new to me authors who are going to be at this year s RT convention , and this book is the first from that list that I ve really, really enjoyed Total shocker, especially since the author narrates her own audiobooks Authors narrating their own audiobooks is a no no, in my book, only because very few have the acting chops and vocal range to pull it off While Rachel Hollis doesn t excel at male voices, she rocked out her female voices and gave great feeling to her characters I was amazed at how much I loved the audio, and I ll totally spring for the rest of the series in audio format Party Girl is very The Devil Wears Prada esk, but not in a bad way It is clear where some of the influence comes from, but it stops short of ever feeling derivative I was really surprised at how easily I fell in love with this story The MC, Landon Brinkley, is a hard working, spunky, high hair, southern, nonjudgmental character, and I adored her That is saying a lot, because female MCs have a tendency, for some reason, to cut other women down and come across as the lowest common denomenator Landon doesn t She was a total breath of fresh air, and I would read about her any day of the week I stop short of calling this book a romance, for all of my fellow traditional romance lovers, because the focus of the book is really on Landon s personal development While there is some romance, it takes a far backseat There is also absolutely no sex or any action on page, which makes itchick lit y, in my book If you want an interesting, engaging, story about a woman trying to make it in the cut throat world of LA with lots of great side characters and some light romance, don t pass this one up And the audio upgrade is totally worth it Rock on, Rachel Hollis.
