I’ve always been a girly girl when it comes to books and movies. As a fan of chick literature, I want to share my favourites with you. If you’re into girly books, like me, I’m sure you’ll get some inspiration out of this list! 🙂
Chick lit is genre fiction which addresses issues of modern womanhood, often humorously and lightheartedly. The genre became popular in the late 1990s.
Lauren Weisberger’s Chanel Chic
This book was given to me by a roommate when I was in college. I remember this book to be so fun to read. It always got me into this nice vibe because I thought it was such a funny book, and I loved the luxury – New York feel to it.
The story is about three girls reaching their thirties, taking a turn in their lives; one girl breaks up with her boyfriend, the other one decides it’s time to start a serious relationship, the other one tries to stop taking life too seriously.
It’s a fun, not too heavy read. An ideal book for when you’re lying at the beach. If you’re looking to read something profound, this unfortunately is not the right book for you.
Lauren Conrad’s L.A. Candy & The Fame Game series
This is another fun, light reading. When I was in high school, I was a huge fan of the (scripted) reality show “The Hills”. I was so excited when I heard Lauren Conrad, one of the show’s main characters, had published a book!
She writes about a couple of girls who are in a reality show, based upon her own experience in “The Hills”. If you’ve watched “The Hills”, Lauren Conrad’s books will give you so many insights into the show. Like how the producers managed to script the reality of each’ character’s life.
L.A. Candy is the first book in a series of three books, and is followed by a spin-off (which is also a three books series) – The Fame Game. If you’ve read L.A. Candy, I’m sure you’ll instantly want to read the next five books as well!
Caroline de Maigret’s How To Be Parisian
This is for all the chicks loving Paris and the Parisian’s way of lifestyle. This book captures Parisian women in their daily lives, written by Caroline de Maigret and her three girlfriends; Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan and Sophie Mas.
