It’s summertime…time to give your brain a rest and pick up a trashy book. Hey, now…Crime and Punishment is my ultimate fave, but a frothy beach read it is not.

I enjoy chick lit, and I’m not embarrassed to admit it. So if you’re searching for light entertainment, here are some excellent picks:

Talking to Addison – Jenny Colgan
Amanda’s Wedding – Jenny Colgan
Stupid and Contagious – Caprice Crane
Obsession, Deceit and Really Dark Chocolate – Kyra Davis
Passion, Betrayal and Killer Highlights – Kyra Davis
Sex, Murder and a Double Latte – Kyra Davis*
Love The One You’re With – Emily Giffin
Baby Proof – Emily Giffin
Something Blue – Emily Giffin
Something Borrowed – Emily Giffin*

Jemima J: A Novel About Ugly Ducklings and Swans – Jane Green
Passport Diaries: A Novel – by Tamara Gregory
The Givenchy Code – Julie Kenner*
Can You Keep a Secret – Sophie Kinsella
The Bachelorette Party – Karen McCullah Lutz
Why Girls Are Weird: A Novel – Pamela Ribon
The Pact – Jennifer Sturman*
Good in Bed – Jennifer Weiner
Animal Husbandry – by Laura Zigman

And if you wanna laugh your ass off:
Yeah, I Said It – Wanda Sykes

    I’ve read a lot of these books! I also am a huge Emily Giffin. I’ve also read the Jennifer Sturman series.

    Great list!
