If you want an easy read, fresh characters and fun then this just might be the book for you.
Landon is a small town Texas girl who throws herself into the unforgiving world of L.A. event planning. All the characters – good and bad – are so fabulous and well written (I get the feeling they’re based on real people *wink* – Rachel started as an event planner in L.A.). And I loved every bit of the flirty, slightly forbidden romance that was sprinkled into the main storyline of Landon’s self-discovery and true friendship. There’s a bit of every feel in this book, but overall it is a light, fun read!
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.

We have all been there, our first job after University and culture shock of colleagues, horrible bosses working late and just getting sucked into all sorts of stupid drama. I really felt for her and totally understood how she must of have felt. I adored Landon's' resilience, grace under fire, strong moral backbone and strength of character. She was my kind of gal. The supporting characters are well rounded and relatable. I will read the rest of the 'girl' series with relish.
The book is so girly, but it is not trying to be anything else and it makes it a really relaxing read. I enjoyed it so much I bought the sequel, Sweet Girl straight after.
