Tuesday Topics: Chick Lit

In the midst of the springing spring, I tend to let my reading turn a bit more lighthearted and happy. There is nothing better than sitting on my porch with a glass of sweet tea spending the afternoon reading. A few of my favorite authors are :

Meg Cabot. She embodies the lighthearted romantic comedy on paper. Go straight for her books when you want a quick (because it sucks you in!) fun read!
Emily Giffin. I'm eagerly awaiting Giffin's next installment! "Something Borrowed," and "Something Blue" were 2 of my favorites!

Mary Kay Andrews, who authored my very favorite read, "Hissy Fit." Her tales always feature a hilarious southern heroine who undoubtedly gets into a pickle due to her stubborn head. (just like lots of us!)

What are some of your favorite chick lit authors and books?

Those sound great! Thanks for the tips.

I just finished reading Bitter is the New Black by Jen Lancaster. Have you read it?? I'm onto her second book now. They're quick reads and fairly entertaining. I wouldn't call them ground breaking or anything but she's pretty funny!

I received Hissy Fit from your book swap and I LOVED it!! I immediately went to the library checked out one of her books on cd for my work road trips.

I live Emily Giffin! She went to my college, so I always love the little Wake Forest tidbits she throws in. She's also from Atlanta, where I'm from, so she makes references to that too! Gotta love Summer READING!
