Chick Lit Chick

Winter Garden:

Winter Garden

Coming soon to


Hello and Happy New Year!  So sorry my holiday break ended up being longer than anticipated.  But it’s a new year, and I can’t wait.  I have a really good feeling about this year, lots of changes for me, I hope.  I need to shake things up, make a change, do something different.  I am tired of doing the same thing, day in and day out. Life is too short….I don’t want to have another year like last year.  I may not survive!  Litigation is not for the weak of heart and I am trying to find my way out.  Stay tuned…..

The holiday season was certainly a slow one in terms of Chick Lit.  However, there were a couple of gems that came out right around Christmas, that held me over till the new year:

These are both fun books that are quick, enjoyable reads.  The Overnight Socialite is a modern take on My Fair Lady that is funny and heartwarming.  The Nanny Returns is the sequel to the best seller The Nanny Diaries; this one was a little more melancholy as Nanny and her former charge Grayer, have both grown up and are having a hard time dealing with life’s more challenging obstacles.   

Next up, on February 2, Kristin Hannah’s latest:

The Shopping Season has begun!

Good lord, I am bored.  With the exception of New Moon, (which was EXCELLENT) there have been no new movies that have piqued my interest and no new chick lit books either.  Will there be any new books coming out at Christmas?  I haven’t even gotten an email from Borders, letting me know what books are being released.  

Am I missing something?  Is there anything good out there?  I bought the new Joyce Carol Oates book, Little Bird of Heaven, and it is very, very slow….I am limping through it.   But, I bought Alli Vincent’s new book, Believe it, Be it, and Sarah Parlin’s book, Going Rogue.  Check back soon for my review of both!

The last month has just been boring.  Nothing good goin’ on.  Haven’t seen any really great movies or read any really great books.  The last month has just been blah.  And then I see this:
