Chick Lit Recommendations for the Summer

I’m a bizarrely intense reader. I’ll read fiction, mysteries, history, fantasy, biographies, cozies, humour, you name it. A lot of people criticise and mock chick lit as a genre for being fluffy and flip. However, sometimes I want to read a book to escape from stress and work and don’t want to have to do mental gymnastics to make my way through a book. Summer is definitely a reading season for me! I love sitting outside or in the three season room for a few hours, especially with a fun piece of chick lit that helps me “get away”. These are my top recommendations for chick lit this summer!

Banff Restaurants, Travel Thursday

Obviously I had to talk about where we ate on our trip, and I figured that given that everybody loves food, I should finish my trip coverage off with it.

I enjoy making Alpha Gam crafts- it is fun and is something that I am passionate about. I don’t really craft like southern sorority members though, because WHY DO YOU NEED A PAINTED COOLER FOR A FORMAL?!?!?

I usually prefer reading to watching TV. Or people. AKA. My reading habits.

I am what they call a voracious reader. I cannot put books down. Sure, I have the occasional Netflix binge, but I weekly (sometimes more often) book binge. I am currently in a Romanov spurt, and I can’t get enough information about them. I am in the middle of Helen Rappaport’s biography of the children, just fascinating.
