I am wondering which Chic Lit authors are the best. I am in the need of some new reading material and don't know where to start. So who is the best Chic Lit author you can think of?

Some of my favorites:

Jen Lancaster, Jennifer Weiner, Wendy Markham, Beth Ciotta, Plum Sykes, Jane Green, and Jane Porter.

Out of all those, it's a tie between Jen Lancaster and Jennifer Weiner for my absolute favorite. Also, try this out for a good introduction into the world of chick lit: http://candycoveredbooks.com/

I find www.chicklitclub.com to be one of the best chick lit review sites out there as you can sort by author, title, high raters, top 10, and Dream Themes (Iists books that focus on sisters, pregnancies, different careers, infedility, hollywood, etc.)...

I heartily second Jen Lancaster as a must-read author.  I'm also a big fan of Sophie Kinsella's non-shopaholic books, and her stuff as Madeline Wickham :)

I'll admit that I'm not too far into chick lit as of yet, but I have read 4 or 5 by Jane Green and I just love her. Her books are now an auto-read for me!

I love Beth Kendrick, Hester Browne, Whitney Gaskell, Emily Giffin, Megan Crane, and Mary Kay Andrews.

I;'ve got a copy of bright lights, big ass as well as such a pretty fat by Jen Lancaster.

I'd like to send them to the same person to save on postage.

Plese send me a PM if you'd like them both and we can work that out.

Thanks!

Dena, you probably want to post this in the WL thread, where it will get instant attention.
