Can I take my cue off S Downing and also cheekily suggest my own, In The Past Imperfect, especially if you like the original queen of chick-lit, Miss Austen herself.

I really love Victoria Connelly's books - they're gentle rom coms and they always have beautiful settings like Lyme Regis (The Perfect Hero). Also love Sophie Kinsella - she always makes me laugh out loud. And Deborah Wright too.

Might I offer up a wonderful author who has a couple of books out, so if you like one, there's another waiting in the wings to read. Sibel Hodge has My Perfect Wedding (Romantic Comedy) and Fourteen Days Later (Romantic Comedy)

enjoy and happy reading

I would recommend; Lucy diamond, Paige toon, Lindsey kelk, Jennifer wiener, lauren weisberger, Marian Keyes, Sophie kinsella. May fave is Emily Barr. She is chick lit with a twist.

Trisha Ashley's books are great. Several of the authors mentioned above can be followed on Facebook and/or Twitter - with links to other authors, books etc.

Try "Make a Joyful Noise" by Jenny Worstall. It is a deliciously light romantic novel, based around the various exploits of members of a choir. A thoroughly good read!

The Waitress by Melissa Nathan, in fact *any* of her books are a cracking chick lit read.

I've only enjoyed A Summer Fling by Milly Johnson, her others I'm not too keen on.

I absolutely loved Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. Her best book by far.

Surprised nobody has mentioned Monica McInerney or Kate Morton...both excellent. For a really fun read try Holly Denham's book Holly's Inbox and it's sequel..Hilarious!!

Damn! I wrote a chick lit and I can't tell you about it! What's your fave type of stories???

I didn't write chick lit, but people say it is. :-(

If you like chicklit you may like this: [Bringing Home the Birkin: My Life in Hot Pursuit of the World's Most Coveted Handbag]Bringing Home the Birkin: My Life in Hot Pursuit of the World's Most Coveted Handbag BY Tonello, Michael(Author)Hardcover

I read it on a plane from New York and it's the perfect light read. Fascinating story (not fiction!) - it even has a very sweet romance thrown in.

Why the :( Stella? You write someone people enjoy reading, so you should be feeling :) surely?

;)

True. It's chick lit style, but not straight chick lit. Not at all. And yes, people enjoyed it.

Might try pure chick lit one day. Since I love reading it, might be fun to write it, too. :-)

I love it (reading and writing it), especially when the world seems full of nasty things happening, it takes me away from it for a while and into an alternative world.

Cue Twilight music...

She's only had one book out but I loved "Cougars by Claire Irvin" And I can't believe nobodys mentioned them, sinead moriairty and jane fallon :) Lots more suggestions but lets see how you get on with those.

In reply to an earlier post on 8 Mar 2012 11:12:06 GMT
Yep, it's light, something to giggle with and one can forget about all the cares in the world for a while. That's a nice thing and probably why it's so popular.
I have to say that I tend more towards literary fiction now, but I inbetween I need to go back to chick lit. My friend just sent me a few books: Mike Gayle (love him), Milly Johnson (I bought it for her) and an author I haven't heard of: Jill Shalvis.
Wasn't too impressed with Milly's book, An autumn crush, the editor in me screamed right in the beginning, but I'll give it a go again.

The book I read of Milly Johnson's was all mixed POV, not normally crafted scene by scene but all over the place. It took a bit of getting used to. Are all her books like that?

I popped to look at your profile and it says you write dark Gothic stories?

Posted on 8 Mar 2012 11:21:40 GMT
No idea. It was the first I bought. The cover attracted me and normally, what I like, my friend likes too, when it comes to chick lit. I started reading it on the plane.
