Well, according to Wiki Chic Lit is, Chick lit is a term used to denote genre fiction within women's fiction written for and marketed to young women, especially single, working women in their twenties and thirties. The genre sells well, with chick lit titles topping bestseller lists and the creation of imprints devoted entirely to chick lit. It generally deals with the issues of modern women humorously and lightheartedly. [1]

It has been described as a "safe substitute" for spending time on real romance, or other cultural demands on women, such as homemaking, finding Mr. Right, having thin waists and sexual fidelity.[1]

Although usually including romantic elements, women's fiction (including chick lit) is generally not considered a direct subcategory of the romance novel genre, because in women's fiction the heroine's relationship with her family or friends may be equally as important as her relationship with the hero.[2

SO theres your lol Wiki Def. I guess I PERSONALY fun, light hearted "light" FUN FUN FUN!

Confessions of a Shop a Holic is one of my fav Chic Lit's the whole series.

And Jane Green, all of her books!

Hey hilarious blog, really love it. I am a self professed book slut and don't care who knows it haha.

We followed you and look forward to reading more.

I'd have to say when I was younger Sarah Dessen was def. my favorite 'Chic Lit' author. She knew how to pull at my teenage heartstrings for sure.
