…The Vegas Diaries by Holly Madison
This was my quick fluff listen before I dive into the world of A Court of Thorns and Roses. I also hadn’t realized that she wrote a book after Down the Rabbit Hole: Curious Adventures and Cautionary Tales of a Former Playboy Bunny. I never missed an episode of The Girls Next Door and I listen to Holly and Bridget’s Podcast Girls Next Level. I read her first book as opposed to listen and maybe that is where my disconnect is coming in. I really enjoy the podcast – maybe Holly is more off the cuff. Her narration sounded to ‘Peep Show’ aka like she was reading a fairy tale instead of relating her life’s experiences. I found it a bit inauthentic. I did enjoy her goings on and her addressing mental health issues and burnout. I really want a similar home to the one she describes moving into at the end of the book. It’s also extremely reassuring to know even someone of her brains and beauty has trouble dating like I do. Overall okay, but not my favorite. If you are an overall fan like me, it’s worth a shot.
