La di dah...
(I'm just going to act like it's not been two weeks since my last post)
Anyway, yes, I said it - I read and love chick lit!
You know, those books that are like romantic comedy movies, with all the feel-good and squishy endings?
Don't get me wrong, I read other books that have a bit more substance to them, but I just love cosying up on the couch after a full-on day with my latest book and reading the night away.
And because of that, I thought I'd share a few of my favourite 'chick lit' authors, just in case you are looking for something new to read...
Now where to start...hmmmm....
Jill Mansell - is one of my favourites and I have quite a collection of them as I find them good re-readers. They are the epitomy of a feel-good 'awww' ending.
Melissa Nathan - has 5 novels to her name, and sadly passed away due to cancer in 2006 but her novels are witty, well written and great reads. One favourite being her debut novel "Pride, Prejudice & Jasmin Fields"
Marian Keyes - her older novels such as 'Sushi for Beginners' and 'Last Chance Saloon' are fab reads, and her new novels are good, but I'd recommend starting with the older books. The only exception is "Anybody Out There?" which was brilliantly written and so moving - not so much a romantic comedy though, more a drama.
Jane Green - is another author who started out with chick lit but is now moving towards more drama/family style books. Of her later novels 'Second Chance' is one of my favs, but I'm always a sucker for her older novels such as 'Jemima J', 'Bookends' and 'Mr Maybe'.
I might leave it there for now, but I could go on :-) (I read A LOT!)
How about you? Any book or author recommendations for me? I would love to hear from you!
