I don't believe there is a thread for this yet!

The chick lit that I'm listening to right now is: Love The One You're With by Emily Giffin

Up next is: Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger

What is everyone else reading or has read this month?

I'm slowly making my way through Remember Me? by  Sophie Kinsella. I'm really enjoying it, but for some reason I've been crazy busy & just can't find the time to sit and read it. :(

I'm reading Diary of a Mad Mom to Be by Laura Wolf (sequel to Diary of a Mad Bride). These are both a few years old, but SO funny. I love books that are in a journal/diary format. I just finished The Importance of Being Married by Gemma Townley. Cute book! It's supposed to be the first in a trilogy, and the second is out in May.

I am reading Here Kitty Kitty by Jardin Libaire. Rampant drug use, and not as chick-lit as I thought it would be.  I think Singletini by Amanda Trimble is up next!

I just started "The Cigarette Girl" and love it so far! A smart, bright, talented heroine who is a writer! Enjoying it.

Still listening to the two above, but now I'm also reading:

How I Stole Her Husband by Liz Ireland

I'm on the fence about it.  I'm over 100 pages in and it's just getting good!

I just finished reading Mrs. Perfect. I am getting ready to start Inkheart. (Not chick lit, but looked interesting and a friend recommended it.)

I'm reading One Fifth Avenue by Candace Bushnell...it was difficult to get into at first but I just have 100 or so pages left, and the story has definitely picked up. I was surprised that I like it, because I didn't really care for Four Blondes or Sex & the City (love the show, though).

I'm about to finish Bitter is the New Black by Jen Lancaster - I have Bright Lights, Big Ass, but not any of the others, so I am going to try to not read the next one for a little bit so I don't get sad I don't have the others to read. I keep checking my library for some of the books on my WL but I haven't had a lot of luck lately... so I'm not sure what I'll read next. I have some Jane Green I think I will try out, but I never know until I'm staring at my book pile :)

I am currently listening to 5th degree by James Patterson.  I did not think I would enjoy these books but they are really good.  I am trying to decide what to start on next.

I just finished Big Boned by Meg Cabot in less than a day. Now I am sad. Not sure what I'll read next, probably "You'll Never Nanny in This Town Again" (The True Adventures of a Hollywood Nanny) by Suzanne Hansen. I found it at the library.
