This Week in Chick Lit

~ By Melina Kantor

Hi All!

Happy Friday!

Here’s your weekly dose of chick lit news:

1. Here’s an article  from the New York Times on beach reads. What do you think of the author’s take on chick lit?

Even if you wanted retreads of the same old stories, they would be hard to find. Chick lit? SO over. Police procedurals? Done to death. Sweet little cottages on Nantucket? They need renovating.

Discuss amongst yourselves. . .

2. Bridget Jones is turning 15. And what’s this about Helen Fielding tweeting her next novel?

3. This article from the New Yorker raises the question of the relationship between chick lit and romance. Plus, there’s a reference to the Jennifer Egan mess we discussed about right here on the blog.

If you’ve got links to any more chick lit related stories, please share it in the comments.

Have a great weekend and see you next week! 🙂
