Chick Lit

Add this one to your beach bag!

 I admit it - I LOVE chick lit - and I think British chick lit is some of the best! Jill Mansell is a great British chick lit author I've just discovered and her latest is An Offer You Can't Refuse.

Waiting for Summer

I love the sights and smells of Spring but always find this time of year to be one of the hardest. After a long, cold winter I'm ready to grab my flip-flops, a towel, and a great book and head to the beach - but the weather hasn't quite caught up to me yet.

Here are a few of my favourites. What's your favourite summertime read? Post a comment below to share.
