    Hey gals! Does anyone have any chick lit recommendations? I read all the time...I loved the Shopoholic series, Jane Green, Slammerkin, Post Birthday World, etc. I don't like sci fi or murders at all. Any recommendations?

    Anything by Jodi Picoult. A lot of her stuff is deep, but I've seriously fallen in love with every single one of her books on some level.

    What is 'chick lit'? Is brainer reading that is just light and fluffy? Lol. Ok well I don't know if these will fit in...but here are my favorite girl centered novels/series:

    Diana Gabaldon, the Outlander series.
    Maeve Binchy: Any of them really, once you've read one, you've kind of read them all, but I like 'em anyway.
    Jacqueline Carey: The Kushiel series
    Laurell K. Hamilton: the vampire series. 
    Why be a king when you can be a God?

    OUTLANDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Heh. Can you tell I like it? Her friend, ohhh Lord....hang on let me get the Kindle...Sara Donati writes a similar series which is also enjoyable. In fact, I can't recommend reading them at the same time, you'll get all kinds of fuckered up about who is doing what where. Er...well....that is if you're a weirdo like me and read 3 or so books at the same time...

    I'm a huge fan of Emily Giffin's books (Something Borrowed, etc). I have her last 2, but haven't had time to read them yet. They are going to be my nursing in the middle of the night reads when baby comes :D

    Sophia Kinsella is wonderful.  I didn't read the Shopaholic books, but everything else is really funny.

    Susan Elizabeth Phillips is good too - I think I started with Match Me if You Can but she has a whole series with reoccurring characters.

    I love, love, love, Laurie Notaro!  She writes memoirs that have me laughing out loud.

    Janet Evanovich writes the Stephanie Plum series.... The first book is One for the money, they just made a movie out of it last year. But there is 15 or more and they get better and better :)

    I think I love you.
