I've always said my favorite genres were dystopian and fantasy, and medieval, and historical fiction, and etc.
But I really didn't realize how much I love chick lit.
They make great stand alones.
They make great summer reads.
I also didn't realize how much names I have for them.
I call them my fresh air,
my romance stories,
my summer reads
my contemporary books,
my road trips,
In other words, I go to chick lits when I'm feeling bored, down, lonely, tired, or when I'm in a book funk.
You all had those periods when you just can't seem to find a book that would interest you, right?
When that happens, I go to my chick lits.
They're romantic. And I love those books when I'm reading them. Those are also the kind of books I tend to read and forget about.
There are some I can't seem to forget.
Either way, my point is if you're getting tired of too much dystopian....
well, if you just been reading dystopian after dystopian after dystopian, you can read them chick lits.
Another thing I like about them is that they can go in any direction.
The plots can be all different.
It can be a road trip.
It can be school drama.
It can be about friends.
About first love.
About meeting someone.
SO SO MUCH.
And there's romance.
To me, there is no good book without romance.
I'm talking about the cute ones.
Except for the middle grade adventures.
I enjoy those too.
But even those have romances nowadays.
Okay. This post was entirely a rant.
But hope I don't sound too lost.
And I hope I actually make sense.
Because once I start typing paragraphs, I make absolutely no sense....according to everyone I'm texting.
Either way, some GOOOD GOOOD chick lits to start on.

Thoughts: I'm totally in love with Etienne. Every time I read this book, I can fall in love with him all over again. Despite the 'not that tall' aspect, he is so so so perfect. I just can't.
And Anna is hilarious. I love Anna. Just do.
Yeah. I definitely read this book when I'm bored. I know I title sounds sooo cheesy. But there's a lot of chemistry. And totally clean. No dirtiness.
Not that I mind.

Anyways, this also is an awesome contemporary on my 'summer read' list. Hope ya'll enjoy this one.

Thoughts: This one is one of the road trip kind. I love road trips. Cuz chemistry forms like crazy on the road. :D Btw, I ship every single couple in this list. SO CUTE. Why can't my school have such perfect couples? Maybe I just don't know their story.
I doubt my mom would let me go on a road trip. Plus I have school. And summer school. To get ahead with my classes. So I can take AP and all next year. Ugh. Yeah, I'm living the nerd status. Gotta loosen up. LOL. That's why I read. :)

Thoughts: YES. YES. YES. She's a newly famous author and all. But I absolutely love Fangirl. This is actually more NA than YA, but I can take anything as long as it's not erotic. Please. No erotica. Sure, it's super hot. But I don't want to get hooked. I can't even drive. And just don't want to think about those things.
Okay. Moving on. Levi. That guy right there. :) I want to meet someone like him when I go to college. It's #Stanford. Cuz that's where all the hot nerds go. Right? Haha.
Okay. There's a whole LOT more books I can recommend that are my version of "chick lit", but I have problems thinking up of things just like that.
That's why I can never talk when I'm put on the spotlight.
So, if you want some more recommendations, feel free to leave a comment, email me, or however you can to contact me.
I would love to recommend and talk to all of you guys. And fangirl over books. :) Because my life won't be complete without fangirling. Seriously.
