Former 'The Hills' star Lauren Conrad's first novel hits best-seller list

By Christopher Rocchio, 07/13/2009 

Lauren Conrad's debut novel has apparently found its way onto quite a few summer reading lists.

The former The Hills star's "L.A. Candy" has topped the New York Times Best Seller list for the second week in a row, People reported Friday.

"If someone said to me five years ago when this all started that I would one day make the New York Times Best Seller list I wouldn't have believed it," Conrad told People. "I am so honored that it is now a reality."

While the novel falls in the fiction category, it mostly mirrors Conrad's own life -- as it follows a 19-year-old girl who moves to Hollywood and finds herself starring in her own reality show.

Last September, HarperCollins Publishers acquired the rights to a three-book young adult fiction series written by Conrad.  "L.A. Candy" represents the first book of the deal, and Conrad said landing on the best-seller list was equally enjoyable to starring in a top-rated television show.

"It was such a compliment to be included in something with such established names," she told People.

Conrad's stint as The Hills' star ended in May after she previously announced she would be leaving the MTV series to focus on other business endeavors.
