Have you tried Sibel Hodge's books? Had me in fits, I'd never read any chick-lit before I discovered her books. ;-)

Put Choclit into Search under Kindle books - they seem to have a lot of their titles on special offer at the moment (£2.15 each) but I don't know how long for as two I bought for £1.72 each the other day are now full price (over £6). I loved The Untied Kingdom which I had a review copy of for www.thebookbag.co.uk, where you can find reviews of a lot of their other publications.

I've just finished 'Saffron Skies' by Lesley Lokko- I really liked it. I'm looking forward to trying more of her books- it reminded me a bit of Penny Vincenzi's style of writing :)

*sighs*

One day my humble book will be known and then Stella Deleuze will be recommended :-)

Just kidding, people...

My favourite authors in the chick lit genre are Cecilia Ahern and Alexandra Potter as well as Adele Parks.

If you like The Inbetweeners or Keith Lemon-type humour, try Insatiable by Julie O'Neill on Kindle. It's a bit naughty but very funny if you like naughty!

Jodi Picoult and Diane Chamberlain, I wouldn't say they are chick lit as such, but great reads with characters you really care about. also I've just finished Me Before You by Jojo Moyes ths was brilliant

Gee, this thread was dead. Well dead. Poor UK bookworm is buried under books to review :-)

Nope, the thread is not dead yet - only picked up on it this morning. May I add Jojo Moyes to the ever growing list? I highly recommend "me before you" - superior writing, whichever genre you prefer.

A Moment Like Forever by Martina Reilly- one of my favourites- made me laugh, made me cry, made me want to shout at or hug or cheer on the main character

Can't Live Without is one I'd recommend - it's been described as chick lit with a bit of an edge, and I guess this means there's a bit more to it than handbags and shopping :) might be worth UK Bookworm having a look :) I've also just discovered Kate Long (where have I been?) and I would definitely second the recommendation of Fiona Gibson. Thanks for all the other great names on here to try - my wish list is bulging!

But the last post before resurrecting this thing was by me back in July last year. :-)

And before I forget. Thanks for reminding me of Me Before You. Saw it a few times at Tesco and wanted to get it for ages. :-)

Fantastic thanks everyone I'm an avid reader and have lots more options now before the hols. Also great for Olympics avoidance. Last thought; would be great to resurrect some of the 90s classics as ebooks - Lace by Shirley Conran, Scruples by Judith Krantz etc

Shoe Addicts Anonymous by Beth Harbison is an unusual read (as far as I know, haven't read much chick lit) funny on the surface but serious comment underneath - as in The Full Monty

Hi, a new website recommends Chick Lit with a difference novels including books from Ceceila Ahern, Melissa Hill, Alexandra Potter. The books recommended on the website are written in a 'Chick Lit' style, but all have quite unique intriguing premises. If you would like to have a browse, or recommend some books which fit the theme that would be great! http://pageturnerbooks.wix.com/pageturners @pageturnerswix
