This Week in Chick Lit

~ By Melina Kantor

Happy Friday!

Can you believe it’s March already? It promises to be a busy month, free of national holidays and three-day weekends.

But there’s good news! It’ll be quite the month for us chick lit fans.


There are a ton of books coming out this month, as proven by the “Chick Lit Reviews” blog. Head on over there for a great list of March 2011 releases.

Also, 16 year-old Jessica Reese, creator of the blog “Chick-Lit Teens” is going to be on the TV show “The Young Icons” this weekend. See what Jessica Reese has to say about teens and chick lit here. The idea of kids and teens as book lovers makes my teacher-heart burst with pride. Way to go Jessica!


This week’s inspiration comes to you curtesy of Janet Evanovich!

Wow. Don’t you just love hearing about how authors come up with their characters?

And, that’s a wrap. See you next week.

Have a great weekend, everyone. What will you be reading / writing / editing?
