Welcome

I love to read. It has aways been one of my favourite things to do. When I was a kid in grade 2, I wrote a letter to Santa asking him to bring me a library for Christmas. Although I never got that library, I did get a bookshelf loaded with "Full House" and "Babysitter's Club" books and thus my collection of "chapter" books was started.

Over the years I found several book genres that I love, and chick lit is one of my favourites. Chick lit novels may never be critically acclaimed, but they certainly are fun to read.

For those who don't know, chick lit is a form of women's fiction that addresses issues of modern women, often humorously and lightheartedly. Some people find this genre to be nothing more than "fluff," "trash," or "pointless garbage," and while I agree that these types of books probably won't bring to light any important social issues or change anyone's life too drastically, I do find them to be entertaining, quick reads. They are the perfect type of book to bring to the beach, or read over the weekend. Any girl who likes to watch romantic comedies will love to read chick lit novels.

Reading a chick lit novel is like listening to your best friend tell you about her life. The novels are written with a very personal tone, and the characters are often easy to relate to.

With this blog, I will review and recommend some of my favourite chick lit novels. I will also discuss some of my favouite authors and compare many central themes.

I am looking forward to sharing my opinions about this often misunderstood type of fiction. I encourage everyone to check my blog every week and then read some of the novels that I recommend.

Happy Reading.
