Don't you want me? and Chick Lit Challenge wrap-up

India Knight's Don't you want me? was fun and light and yet still real somehow. I could totally identify with Stella in more than one place. The story is about a 38-year-old woman who has a small child and is also trying to get back into dating. It's pretty straighforward, but what makes the books special is the writing style - the way India Knight phrases things had me laughing out loud. I really liked it and will be looking out for other books by the same author. Sometimes I need some smart chick lit to read!

Challenges: Chick Lit Challenge only, but now it's completed, so I guess I should wrap-up!

The other two books I read were Can you keep a secret? by Sophie Kinsella and The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants by Ann Brashares. I liked all of them - the Ann Brashares was a bit different from the other two because it's for young adults, but it was very good. Sophie Kinsella is my favorite chick lit author so far, but India Knight is really good, possibly just as good. I'll hve to read more of her stuff to find out!

The Chick Lit Challenge was hosted by Twiga the book addict 4 life - thanks for a fun idea!

Thanks for joining! I really enjoy Sophie Kinsella also. I just picked up another of her books under her name Madeleine Wickham so we'll see if it's good as well.
