Kardashian Konfidential: A Review

So for the past month I have been putting all my other books on hold to read this little gem, Kardashian Konfidential by Kourtney, Kim, and Khloe Kardashian, which is an inside look at their lives.  Ever since we got E! in Canada I have been obsessed with them.  My Sunday night line up of Desperate Housewives got a new buddy, whether it’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, or the newest series in the franchise, Khloe and Lamar.  Like so many others out there, I became obsessed.

So I finally caved and bought Kardashian Konfidential.  They did have this at my local library and I did request it because there was a list, but I figured I wanted to buy it because truth be told, the book is so pretty (and of course the library calls me the weekend after I buy it to say they have it for me, oh well).  It’s more of a coffee table book than anything.  The font is rather large, there are tons of sidebars and conversations and best of all, photos!  It’s no War and Peace, but hey, what do you expect?  It’s girly, it’s fun, and it’s pretty juicy.

Like for instance did you know that Khloe Kardashian lost her virginity at age 14?  Or that she also has an artificial cartilage in one of her knees because of a car accident?  Yeah, neither did I.  And that’s not all, there are tons of juicy little details about the sisters’ lives that prove that they are regular people, just like you and I, who live pretty glamourous lives (a little bit of an oxymoron I know).

The book is broken up into different chapters and it is distinguished who is speaking (or writing) when.  They cover everything from their childhood, their family, the OJ Simpson trial (their dad was one of OJ’s attorneys), Kim’s marriage, Kourtney’s college experience, and much more.   They also give little tips in sidebars and list some of their favourite things, like beauty, movies, songs, etc.

If you are looking for some serious reading, this isn’t it.  But if you want something fun (and if you like the Kardashians) I would pick this up.  If I had a coffee table this would be on it right now (the cover is super cute with a hot pink jacket and lipstick marks on it).  It’s just such a juicy, fun read, perfect for the upcoming summer season.  And if you don’t like reading (who doesn’t?) pick it up for the photos, there are tons of them.
