So I'm reading The Boy Next Door by Meg Cabot and I'm really enjoying it. I really like the email format of the book. It makes reading more addictive because you can't find a stopping place! Do you guys know of any other chick lit books written this way?

I know the SAHM books by Meredith Efken are written like this (SAHM I Am, @Home for the Holidays, Play it Again SAHM) and I really enjoyed those as well.

There are 2 more books in that series, the "Boy Books":  Boy Meets Girl and Every Boy's Got One.

I  can't think of anymore, but I'm sure someone else will know of some!

I have heard "Holly's Inbox" is like that too. It's on the WL (I have 3 different versions WL) and you can get in line for it too. My friend told me it's a really thick/heavy book b/c the formatting has so much blank spaces for the emails, etc. Supposed to be really cute, too.

I really liked "Wanderlust" by Chris Dyer...its about a young woman who writes for a travel magazine and flys all over the world. It's written in the form of emails she sends back to family and friends.

I remember correctly Why Girls are Weird by Pamela Ribon is written in email format.  It's been a while since I've read it though, so I could be mistaken.  I love those type of books as well, it makes for a much faster read
