It’s been a big year for eBooks and digital downloads so far, and now it is huge for chick lit, too! May is the inaugural celebration for International Chick Lit Month, presented by Chicklit Club, Chick Lit is Not Dead, and Novelicious teams. The month-long festivities acknowledge the genre that is so incredibly diverse, it covers women of all ages, races, beliefs, and romantic statuses. Novels portray fashionistas, daughters, successful professionals and single mothers.
Chick lit isn’t just about chasing Mr. Right in sky-high stilettos, although we love those stories, too! Chick lit eBooks can be funny, heart-wrenching, romantic or inspiring. The characters go shopping, get promoted, move to the city, lose loved ones, and allow themselves to be swept up by love. These characters somehow remind of us of ourselves, or someone we know; the familiarity creates a sense of fun and coziness! So in honor of this first-time celebration, we have gathered a few of our favorite chick lit titles:
- All Eyes on Her by Poonam Sharma
- Magic and the Modern Girl by Mindy Klasky
- Slightly Suburban by Wendy Markham
- The Bride Quartet Series by Nora Roberts
- Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin (The feature film was released this month!)
