While clicking through the USA Today website, I found THIS article on Chick Lit books. All four of these books are new and are supposedly great for “beach reads.” It’s because of this that I think that people don’t really understand this sub-genre of Romance. Also, HERE is another article I found from two years ago.
While I love Chick Lit to be advertised (especially in highly profiled papers) these books aren’t just good for the summertime, which is the message I want to share! Yes, while the covers on the books can look like a great summer read, they are all-year-reads. I can see how someone going on vacation wants to read a fun summer book and I understand why they would pick Chick Lit — the pink woman on the cover is either sipping on a drink with an umbrella in it, she’s lying on the beach staring at a lifeguard or, along with the attractive pictures are the words “hot,” “sizzling” or “heat!” I think in this case, a lot of them are doing it for the wrong reasons. I’m not saying that everyone does this, but it seems like Chick Lit is mainly and more popular in the summer. For me, this isn’t true, because I read more in the fall and wintertime. I’m inside more and I love sitting by the fire drinking hot buttered rums and losing myself into a good book.
What is your favorite time to read Chick Lit books?
