Priceless by Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie is writing a new book titled Priceless. I wasn't aware of her being an author, but this one looks good. I know many people aren't a fan of books written by reality stars, but I'm on the fence. I enjoyed Lauren Conrad's book L.A. Candy so I might pick this one up. What are your thoughts? Do you read celeb written books?

Tall, blond, and willowy, this twenty-two-year-old seems to have everything going for her—she's rich and gorgeous, a talented singer, and has just returned to her Park Avenue penthouse after a year studying in Paris. But since her mother's tragic death years ago, her father, an extremely successful financier, has been her only family—and if she's being honest, her only true friend.

All that changes when Jacob Williams is arrested on charges of fraud, and the SEC freezes the family's bank accounts. With her father in jail and her partying pals suddenly scarce, Charlotte escapes Manhattan and heads to the one place she doesn't think anyone will come looking: New Orleans.

Determined to rebuild her life, Charlotte moves in with her beloved former nanny and finds a job in a local restaurant. Between trying to make ends meet and hiding from her past, she meets Kat, a fellow fashionista who introduces her to the best of the Big Easy's bohemian style. With Kat by her side, Charlotte begins to haunt nightclubs, securing singing gigs that soon begin to heat up—as does her friendship with a local boy, Jackson.

But Charlotte's being followed by an angry stalker who wants nothing more than to destroy her for her father's crimes. And with Mardi Gras just around the corner, the masquerade has only just begun . . .

From the stylish avenues of Manhattan and dark clubs of the French Quarter to the bright lights of Los Angeles, the multitalented Nicole Richie's scintillating tale shows that the very life you run from is the one that won't let you hide.


  1. Though I probably wouldn't rush out to buy this book the first day it's out, if I read the reviews and saw that people were enjoying it I'd certainly give it a try.

    I don't think it really matters who the author is. If they can write, they can write. :)

  2. Wow that was a really long synopsis, I don't know. Maybe, it depends too if I hear good reviews from other peeps. =/

  3. I have to say my first thought was mmmmm. Yes, really! lol. But when you hear her speak in that clip and how she wants her character to connect with the readers, I don't know, I think I want to give it a try. I love the sound of it!

    I have read L.A. Candy and Sweet Little Lies by lauren Conrad. And I'm for sure going to read the other books she is going to write and has written for this series. If I like the description of a book that happens to be written by a famous person, I don't really mind buying it and reading it.

  4. I agree Ree I won't go out and get it on the first day but it will make my to read list :)

    Thanks Juju!

    Nina: I just saw your review about Lauren Conrad's book I love it I need to get it.

    Cynthia: Yeah I noticed that the synopsis is long also.
