Chick Lit 100


I came across this list recently of the top 100 chick lit books which inspired me to start this blog!  As I looked through the list, I realized I’ve read some of these books but have never even heard of many of the others.  I’d like to eventually read all of them just for fun.  You can definitely tell who my favorite chick lit authors are by which ones I’ve read already!  There are a ton more that I’ve read that I think are great and that would have made it on the list if I had my say.

Have you read any of the books on this list?  Which ones would you recommend?
