Chick Lit Authors I Love (and You Might, Too!)

So, apparently, I haven’t posted here in a while. Yeah. I totally meant to do that. (Sorry!) BUT, I’m coming out of hiding — er, my cave — er, my cocoon?… to participate in #ChickLitMay. Today I’d like to share a few of my favorite Chick Lit discoveries…

For the past year and a half or so, I have been fortunate enough to be part of an amazing, supportive, and often hilarious group of Chick Lit authors online. Thank you, internet, for helping me find my people. By joining these lovely ladies (and a few gents), not only have I made a whole slew of new friends, I have also discovered a whole slew of new books! I’m adding to my “want to read” list faster than I can possibly read. But I have been working my way through the gathering collection and I’ve discovered many gems along the way.

A few authors have really grabbed me. Their books are well-written, but more than that they also spoke to my particular tastes (which are exquisite, by the way*). 😉

*Not really. Tastes are tastes. They vary and thank goodness for that because life would be incredibly boring if everybody liked the same things. These are the types of stories I really love. If your tastes are similar, you might love them too.

Clean romances with real dramatic tension and highly relatable heroines. I loved Professional Boundaries and Trouble in Loveland.

Seriously sexy chick lit with substance, characters with depth and real issues. I loved Frisky Business and Some Girls Do.

Funny, emotionally engaging stories with charm to spare and characters you can’t help but root for. I loved Twenty-Five and Marriage Material (currently on Wattpad —  extra applause for the diverse cast of this one — I was so excited to see it).

If you do read one of these books, please take the time to leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads, or elsewhere. It takes only a few minutes (short & sweet is just fine) and really helps authors readers and authors find each other. Win/win!!
