I really liked "Man Camp" but it was really quick read for me, too! I'm starting Shopgirl by Steve Martin.

Not exactly Chick Lit, but I'm (re)reading 'My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One Night Stands' by Chelsea Handler. She's hilarious!

I'm just finishing "Marrying for Money." It's really good. I have to say Chris Manby should be on the "recommended" list when people come here asking for good chick lit! I love her stuff!

Love Kristin B. and thought BFF by JW was very good. I just started "Through Thick and Thin" by Alison Pace. I've loved her other dog-centered books, and there's a dog on the cover of this one, but I haven't seen any pooches yet. Was looking forward to it!

I have now moved onto The Bachelor by Carly Phillips (Book 1 in the Chandlers Brother Series). I love a good series so I hope it is good!

Teri you're a fast reader.  I wish I had the ability.  I think it's cause I try to do too much at the same time.

haha yes Gessy, the more I work, the more I read (sitting on the train/bus all day), and the past few months have been crazy busy for me :) should slow down significantly now, though, so who knows how long it will take me to get through the next book.

 

Linda--I really enjoyed I Heart New York! Can't wait for the next one

Yes there is I Heart Hollywood and I Heart Paris (in that order). They came out in the UK already, but doesn't look like Amazon is selling new copies or Kindle copies in the US yet.

I'm reading the two "Phoebe Grant" books "Dreaming in..." series by Laura Jensen Walker. They are fantastic!

Not sure if it's chick lit or not, but I'm reading "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell" by Tucker Max.  First story made me laugh out loud.  Haven't gotten too far into the book yet but so far so good.
