I read Party Girl over the course of five days - in as much time as I could give once my toddlers went to bed. Let me tell you, the only time I was disappointed was each night when I forced myself to stop reading and when I had finished the book. I love Landon (based on Rachel herself) and all of the interesting and well-developed characters. The story made me laugh out loud, made me cry like a blubbering idiot, and most importantly it inspired me. Landon’s journey, while not the same as my own, showed her daring, her courage, her challenges, and how taking that first step, while scary is also worth the success when you put all of yourself into your dream.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who doesn’t mind feeling the feels and being inspired by a fun, sometimes serious, but also inspiring story of courage, love and friendship.
Thank you, Rachel, for sharing your story and being an inspiration! On to book two, Sweet Girl!!
This is a book that I picked up on a whim for the most superficial of reasons! I love the author’s instagram feed. I feel like it just adds a burst of colour, style and humour to my day when I see her photos so of course I wanted to see what a book of hers would feel like. The answer, pretty much the same as the above!
First Line of Party Girl by Rachel Hollis:
“I’m singing….or, really, bellowing might be a better word.”
My Thoughts on Party Girl by Rachel Hollis:
This book is just what you might find under a definition of totes adorbs in a modern slang dictionary! From the start to the end, it full of colour and glamour and fun. Landon has moved to LA to work with a famous party planner and she is determined to learn everything she can about party planning from her idol. She quickly learns that she has the boss from hell though as Selah’s main skills are sucking up to clients and berating her staff.
I loved how smart and ambitious Landon was. She is such a positive thinker and knows the meaning of hard graft. The events that she worked on are all described in their full chic glamour and I could visualise just how stunning they were. It was one of my favourite parts of the book and even the hustle and bustle and mini disasters were fun to read about.
It also features a lot of fashion and descriptions of what the characters are wearing. Which is something I personally love but I know it’s something that lots of readers hate so I just want to put it out there. It’s description heavy in lots of parts about the clothes, the parties, the locations but it not in an annoying way, just in a way that makes you feel like you are flicking through a glossy magazine.
The relationships in the books are a lot of fun too. Landon’s roommate Max is a character I was intrigued about so I’m happy to see the next book is all about her. And the romantic plot was just the way I like it in a chick-lit book, it was romantic, funny and not overly graphic. I wouldn’t spoil the book for anyone by saying just who HE is but my money was on him from the beginning. Predictable ? A bit but when you are enjoying it this much, who cares!
I picked up this book on a Saturday when I wanted a feel-good book and it didn’t disappoint. I had a big goofy grin on my face during the overture moment at the end and felt happy at just how it all ended. Mission accomplished!
Who should read Party Girl by Rachel Hollis?
I’d highly recommend this to you if you are looking for a feel-good, happy book that features a loveable main character, a romantic plotline and lots of beautiful, glamorous events. Fans of Aven Ellis, Lindsey Kelk and Sophie Kinsella should also enjoy this one.
"Sometimes you aim for the sun and fall short. But if you keep fighting for your dream, it becomes something so much better than you even knew to hope for."
This book is Devil Meets Prada meets The Wedding Planner & I loved every minute of it! I loved sweet southern Texan, Landon...on her way to L.A. to start her new life in party planning. What a trip she was...lots of LOL moments, sweet moments, wtf moments and just enough angst to keep me reading! I love books like this!
"But even if I was terrible, I'd be able to say I went all Step Up 2 with Rhianna's backup dancers, and that'd be awesome!"
I could see myself in Landon many times at some of the silly things she said or did.
The "devil" Selah she works for...ugh I wanted to smack that woman. To be such a success with acting as awful as she was...ugh. You could totally feel how her employees felt by the way Rachel described her.
"I wonder at what point in the last four months I stopped being my father's daughter."
Beautiful story about hard work, determination, never giving up and always being true to yourself! Loved it & can't wait to read more Rachel Hollis books!
This was a truly entertaining read that I have recommended to all of my friends. It was life story meets love story and my heart went out to Landon so many times. I wanted to be her bff at times and at others I wanted to be her mom and make her rest and eat and stop putting everyone else's needs first! The author did a fantastic job with incorporating authentic details involving the party planning business, which added a lovely layer of depth to Landon's story. Highly recommend and makes a fabulous gift for girlfriends!
