"Her debut novel, L.A. Candy, tops the New York Times best-seller list for the second week since its June 16 release. This begs an oh-so-obvious question: Might the Hills hottie be the next Stephenie Meyer?" [E!]
Given the choice between these two books, I would probably suck it up and read LC's novel. The sparkly vampire makes me grind my teeth.
Hopefully, LC will find a stronger writing voice down the road. Stephanie Meyer, however? Her talent extends no further than describing a high school love affair to teen girls.
