Whitney Port On L.A. Candy: 'Everything Was Just So Familiar'

We first caught Whitney Port reading Lauren Conrad's L.A. Candy late last month, and now she's gone ahead and published her official book review! Turns out, Whit thinks LC's a "wonderful writer," even if she does kinda/sorta/TOTALLY remind Whitney of Jane Roberts, (i.e. the book's narrator slash girl-next-door).

"I just finished reading [L.A. Candy] and I absolutely loved it!!!" Whitney wrote on her website yesterday. "[I]t was so fun to see how our lives were re-imagined on paper." Natch, Whit identified most with LC's wide-eyed protagonist ("Jane was the truest to real life," wrote Whit. "She was very Lauren!") but said the whole thing hit super-duper close to home. So just how strong WAS the feeling of deja vu?

"As a former cast member of The Hills," Whit continued, "I could truly feel everything Jane was going through [which makes sense] since the book was based on Lauren's experiences as a reality star. Everything was just so familiar."

And as for the overall verdict?

"[S]o fun and breezy! I finished the book in a week...maybe even less. I'm SO proud of her and I can't wait to read her next book!!!!"
