Celebrating Chick Lit

/ posted in: Reading

Chick lit – Is there a more insulting literary designation? Oooh, women like this so it must be stupid. Let’s package it all in pastels.

Anyway, sometimes you need to read something light and fun. I LOVE this genre but I don’t always review them because there isn’t always a lot to say. Yep, SPOILER ALERT, there was a happy ending.

Here are two books I read recently that were fun and fast and perfect for entertaining my brain.

Practically PerfectPractically Perfect by Katie Fforde

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Anna is an interior designer who is betting all her savings on her ability to renovate an historic cottage in the Cotswolds and then sell it.  The place has been gutted which is entirely against the law since it is listed on the historic register.  Now Anna has to get it back in shape and up to the standards of the prickly inspector. 

No Quest For The Wicked (Enchanted, Inc., #6)No Quest For The Wicked by Shanna Swendson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
In book 6 of this series a previously hidden magical gem that gives its owner power over others is on the move.  It has been paired up with a pin that makes the wearer invincible.  Not a good combination for the people who need to destroy it.  Magical immune Katie has the best chance of getting near it with being overcome by the combined spells but the people and creatures drawn to its power are stronger than anything she’s faced before.
