I've been enjoying reading Christian chick lit lately and am trying to find more Christian chick lit authors.  I've been tagging the books I've read with Christian Chick Lit.  I'm hoping others will do the same so we can more easily discover new Christian chick lit authors.

I just read two that I really liked... "Sisters, Ink" and "Coming Unglued", both by REbeca Seitz.  They're the first two in a series, and they were great.   Also "A Mile in My Flip-Flops" by Melody Carlson, and  "Elvis Takes a Back Seat" by Leanna Ellis.

Oh, Sister's Ink, that reminded me of Stuck in the Middle by Virginia Smith.  Also about a group of sisters.
