Chick Lit is fiction books usually only women would read. It sometimes does contain romance, but doesn't necessarily have to.

Here's a definition that was posted here the other day & it did a pretty good job describing it::

"Chick lit" is a term used to denote genre fiction written for and marketed to young women, especially single, working women in their twenties and thirties.

In my opinion it's made for women of all ages & status, and there's even "mommy" chick lit.
