Are you a fan of Chicklit ? What do you classify as a Chicklit Book ? For the remaining of the month of May to help celebrate International Chick Lit Month, I will be featuring Guest Post's from ChickLit authors local and international , Have Top 10 Lists of favourite Chick Lit Books and the different sub-genres that fall under the Chicklit umbrella and more. I personally am a huge fan of Chicklit Books and in 2009, my first proper online book reviewing gig was for the hit website ChicklitClub- www.chicklitclub.com and I'm still writing book reviews for them at the present time. What goes hand in hand with Chicklit Books is Romantic Chick Flick movies , the reason being that the majority of them have been based on books to start off with and myself being a big movie buff as much as I adore books own over 200+ dvds and most being chickflicks.
What I love most about ChickLit books is the formula it follows. They have their happy-ish beginnings or maybe they start to display problems in the first few chapters , then in the middle something terrible or a tragedy will occur , maybe the guy you thought was Mr. Right will dump you , you get fired from the ultimate dream job or you find out that Mr.Right was cheating on you or in the case of P.S I Love You by Cecelia Ahern - the main character's husband died and left her letters she had to follow , which trust me if the book didn't bring tears to your eyes, the film starring the hunky Gerard Butler definitely did. Then the novel will end up with a beautiful and happy ending , the kind of ending that makes all the tragic storyline in the middle worth it, the kind of ending that makes the reader go "AWHHHHHHHHHHH" and become a hopeless romantic like myself :P
My Top Ten List of 2009: When I first started writing for Chicklit Club , I had to list my Top 10 Chicklit Books , so authors what you must know is that prior to the list, I had read a reasonable amount of books but no where as many as I have in the past 3 years. So readers, a glimpse of the past into the year 2009 and what my Top 10 Chicklit Books were:
