Chick Lit Chum

RachelMW
The list author says: "Books like these are engrossing, ridiculous, fun, or a mix of all. But no matter what, they're addictive. From sexed up Jackie Collins & Sydney Sheldon oldies, to rewritten fairy tales from Lauren Weisberger and Nancy Sparling. They'll never be Cliff Notes on ANY of these, but if you're looking for something to read on the beach, plane, train, or in the bathroom, here you go."

"A great London based Cinder-Fella Story. I really liked this, actually. The author wrote a man's part very well. Won't give away the ending, but the beginning & middle are better."

"Not at all is this Weiner's best book. In fact it down right sucked! She seems to love protagonists with ridiculously awful luck regarding family, body weight, and self-esteem. Then and pair them up with friends that are polar opposite.  Yech. Very rushed writing, too. You'll get through it, but it does not hold a candle to Good in Bed or Little Earthquakes."

"Really liked this. Had some by-the-formula characters (the party-girl best friend, uptight neighbors) but all in all an engrossing read. Perfect for vacation."

"Before Chick Lit, there was Sidney Sheldon, Jackie Collins, Shirley Conran, and others. This of Sheldon's best books--so much fun! A great heroine. It's got the mob, jail, revenge, cat burgulary, internation travel & cons, and some good romance!"

"Reads quickly, and the characters are interesting, but more "telling" than showing". Also does not really go anywhere. I think Amy should go back to writing her column for NY Magazine..."

"Ok someone has to take over Sheldon's novels, especially to write sequels everyone may have been worth waiting for. Bagshaw has his style and storytelling down pat. This is a quick a read, but a fun one. I would totally read more of her, and push her to write a sequel to If Tomorrow Comes (my #1 favorite Sheldon book)."

"Meredith Martin Delinn's husband hs been arrested for a huge Ponzi scheme. Yes, she's like Ruth Madoff, but a bit more sympathetic. Constance, her friend since childhood whom she hasn't spoken to in years, comes to her aid and escape rescue, when everyone has abandoned her and she's lost everything. Very engrossing and an all-around good story."
