The Chick Lit Challenge


June 1 – September 1, 2008

UPDATE August 31, 2008: I completed this challenge on August 29, 2008. It was really fun to read these light, very well-written novels. There wasn’t a bad one in the bunch! Thank you Debi for hosting the challenge!


Hosted by Debi at Journey to the End of the TBR Pile, the Chick Lit Challenge is simple: Read three books from the Chick Lit genre. I have a few of these on my TBR pile, so it was hard to say no to this one! Here’s my list (subject to change):

  1. The Wednesday Sisters, by Meg Wait Clayton (COMPLETED June 10, 2008; rated 5/5; read my review)
  2. Rules for Saying Goodbye, by Katherine Taylor (COMPLETED August 4, 2008; rated 4.5/5; read my review)
  3. Love Walked In, by Marisa de los Santos (COMPLETED August 29, 2008; rated 4/5; read my review)

    I haven’t read any of these so will be interested in what you think. Not sure that I’ve even heard of any of these except maybe Good Grief. Thanks for joining!

    Twiga: The Wednesday Sisters has not yet been released (my copy is an ARC). I couldn’t resist this challenge – looks like fun!

    J.Kaye: LOL – I saw that you were busy signing up for these!

    Katherine: I actually have not yet read your book – but I plan to for this challenge! And I am really looking forward to it. I review all the books I read here…so I will let you know how much I like it 🙂 I would love an Advance Reader’s Copy of your novel Everyone is Beautiful to read and review!!

    I tried to get love walked in at the store last week but they didn’t have it – I’ll be buying it from amazon one of these days – can’t wait to hear what you think of it

    Mrs. S. – I found my copy of Love Walked In at B&N on the sale table. I think they also have it on line on sale…I have a feeling I’m going to love it because I read the sequel and loved that one!
