Books I would read because of their chick lit appeal:
Pretty in Plaid: A Life, a Witch, and a Wardrobe, Or, The Wonder Years Before the Condescending, Egomanical, Self-Centered Smart-Ass Phase by Jen Lancaster (The title alone qualifies as chick lit! I kid you not, this is the title!!) This book is a memoir.
Dead and Gone (Sookie Stackhouse, Book 9) by Charlaine Harris, hardcover.
Also by Harris, a reprint of a 2002 hardcover, Last Scene Alive, Aurora Teagarden Mystery paperback.
BabyCakes: Vegan, Gluten-Free, and (Mostly) Sugar-Free Recipes from New York's Most Talked About Bakery by Erin McKenna, hardcover, cookbook. Again, if the title fits . . . .
Under Her Skin by Susan Mallery -- paperback
Flowers on Main by Sherryl Woods -- paperback
The Guernsy Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows -- paperback (reminds me of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood)
Chasing Harry Winston: A Novel by Lauren Weisberger -- paperback (woo-hoo!)
Authors of note:
Hardcovers: Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk
Brimstone by Robert B. Parker
The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson & The Olympians, Book 5) by Rick Riordan
Paperbacks: Mahogany by Stuart Woods
Resolution by Robert B. Parker
Phantom Prey (Lucas Davenport) by John Sanford
