Getting over It
Author: Anna Maxted
"Maybe it will be good for you to be on your own for a bit." — "Why?" I say in a bored tone. — Lizzy dabs her mouth with her napkin (her perfect lipstick remains perfect) and declares, "You've got to be happy alone before you can be happy with someone." — "Liz," I say, "did you read that in GirlTime?" — "I might have," says Lizzy airily.

If you aren't a fan of Bridget Jones, you may want to move on to another book. I like Anna Maxted and her writing style. This is a book where you keep cheering the characters on, but see that the story would probably make a better movie as the pace can be a little slow (I can not believe it took three chapters to finally get closure on one of the more exciting points!)

Overall, a good, light read.

Yes, this is chic-lit!

surprisingly intense chick novel; more depth and texture than is generally found in this type of literature, but a very smooth read

This is a quirky British novel that I think would fall into the category of "Chick Lit." It's no Bridget Jones, but it kept me interested. Lots of emotional turmoil over love and the loss of a parent.

Maxted is one of my favorite "chick lit" writers. Witty, charming, and fun, her books strike at the heart of the existence of the "women" of today.

I enjoyed this book as something light to relax with. The characters are well developed and the story sails by quickly. I like to mix books like this in with more intense ones. Worth a read if you need something light.
