I love chick lit...anyone with me? Here are some wonderful, laugh out loud, hard to put down, light reads that I simply thought needed to be shared with other chick lit lovers. Some were recommended to me by others and some I stumbled upon and am glad I did.

I have the following titles available for swap and highly recommend all of them:

Sophie Kinsella - all of her books are fantastic, truly loved "Domestic Goddess"
Linda Francis Lee - the entire "Sexy" triology books were awesome! (Simply Sexy, Suddenly Sexy, Sinfully Sexy)
Lisa Cach - "Dating Without Novocaine" this book was seriously funny
Hester Brown - "The Little Lady Agency" and Little Lady, Big Apple (picked these up on a whim and was pleasantly surprised.)
Lynda Curnyn - Engaging Men (very good read, it had been a few years since I read it so re-read it while waiting for other books to arrive and again was very pleased and surprised by it)

Feel free to share some of your favorites!! I'm always looking for new chick lit.

The place to promote your bookshelf is in the Book Bazaar.

The OP was also looking for suggestions on some books, so this seems like an appropriate forum for that, too!

To the OP: have you read any of Jennifer Weiner's books?  They're pretty good!  I was given one and was hooked!  The two I can think of off the top of my head are Good In Bed and Certain Girls.  She's funny and witty!

I really like Cecelia Ahern's books.  PS, I Love You is one of my faves.  Adriana Trigiani's books are also very good.  :)

Let me chime in with a hearty recommendation for Katie Fforde! Delightful, fizzy, well-written escapist women's fiction!

I agree about Kate Fforde!  Also check out Wendy Holden.  I think these 2 women are English authors?  Not sure...but their books are fun chick lit reads!  I also enjoyed Elin Hildebrand's "Blue Bistro"...but not sure if that would be considered chick lit or more women's fiction-but a good read no matter what it is.
