This Week in Chick Lit

~ By Melina Kantor

Happy Friday!

And Happy April! Here’s hoping none of you have been fooled (at least too badly)!

As always, we’re back with our chick lit roundup to kick off the weekend:

Jennifer Weiner made the news again this week. No, she doesn’t have another book out. It’s her famous tweets about the bachelor that got the attention of Time Magazine!

Emily Giffin also made the news, with further proof of the power of the chick lit community. On April 12th, she’ll be participating in the Chick Lit Lavender Luncheon which will raise funds for children suffering from cancer. Nice going, Emily.

And, last but not least, Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield (that’s right, the twins of Sweet Valley High fame who, for many, were our first exposure to the concept of the chick lit heroine) are back! But you probably already know that. What do you think about this? Will you be spending the weekend devouring the new book? Let us know!

(Thanks to Deb McIntyre for the link!)

Have a great weekend! 🙂
