Chick Lit

01st April 2009

Courtesy of a friend, I was gifted several chick lit novels which of course I read ASAP.  While not life-changing, they were certainly enjoyable.  My favorite was The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger.  I’ve heard of it, but never read the book or seen the movie.  If you enjoy the “rich evil boss bested by overworked, underpaid peon” type of story, you’ll love this one.  Highly recommended, if a bit stressful to read.

Next up was Bookends by Jane Green.  This was a fun friendship book, set in Great Britain.  A group of college friends enter the real world, with all of its ups and downs.

And then we have Little Earthquakes by Jennifer Weiner.  This was a humorous and tender look at four women as they experience the first few months of motherhood.  It brought back some good and some not-so-good memories for me.

And finally, courtesy of my local library, Past Secrets by Cathy Kelly.  The women of   Summer Street deal with various secrets.  Faye must repair her relationship with her daughter Amber, Maggie returns home to nurse a broken heart and her sick mother, and Christie confronts a secret that could destroy her marriage.  I think I’ve had my fill of chick lit for awhile!  Time to read something that doesn’t turn my brain to mush…
