May is Chick-Lit month!!!

Did you know that May is International Chick-Lit month? I didn't and I am a huge chick-lit fan!

What exactly is Chick-Lit? -
Chick lit is genre fiction which addresses issues of modern womanhood, often humorously and lightheartedly. Yep that pretty much sums it up.
The genre sells well, with chick lit titles topping bestseller lists and the creation of imprints devoted entirely to chick lit. Although it sometimes includes romantic elements, chick lit is generally not considered a direct subcategory of the romance novel genre, because the heroine's relationship with her family or friends is often just as important as her romantic relationships.

Here are some great Chick-Lit Authors -
Jane Green
Marian Keyes
Sophie Kinsella
Jennifer Weiner
Sarah Mlynowski 
Helen Fielding
Meg Cabot
Emily Giffin
And the list goes on and on!

There is also Christian Chick-Lit, and here are some Authors -
Kristin Billerbeck 
Tracey Victoria Bateman
Denise Hildreth Jones
Laura Jensen Walker
Judy Baer
Robin Jones Gunn
Again, Just to name a few

A lot of Chick-Lit books have been made into movies - 
Confessions of a Shopoholic
In Her Shoes
Something Borrowed
See Jane Date
Sex and the City
Bridget Jones' Diary
The Devil Wears Prada 
If you watched and liked any of these movies, then chances are you would like Chick-Lit 


Here is a great web-site that celebrates Chick-Lit Month - HERE
There are also lots of giveaways.

I will be doing a Chick-Lit giveaway this month too. So stay tuned.
