Everyone says that Chic Lit isn't Harlequins- but then what is it? 

ITs not books written by women?

This link will explain it. Most chick lit books are written by women, but not ALL women write chick lit.

You can find lots of chick lit here!

Chick lit is mostly marketed toward younger women. Traditionally, it was for single girls, but many authors are branching into marriage and children. Whereas Harlequin tends to go heavy on the relationship aspect, chick lit tends to focus on other areas of life (jobs, friends, etc.).
