Best Chick Lit Books

Updated on April 7, 2017

Great Chick Lit

Here is a list of what I consider some really great chick lit books.

Chick lit is one of my favorite genres because I find these books make it easy to slip into the world of the character and forget reality for a while. They're great for when you're feeling down, at the beach, or just want to read a great, relatable book!

Stephanie Plum Series

by Janet Evanovich

These are hands down, no question, my FAVORITE chick lit books ever!

Janet Evanovich is an amazing author with the skill to create a huge series (with spin offs) that just keeps getting better!

I love the main character Stephanie Plum. She works in Trenton, NJ as a bounty hunter for her cousin, and her partner in crime is an ex-hooker, who loves too small clothes and too much food, named Lulu.

They are a hilarious duo, and keep ma laughing until my face hurts! My mom and I have both been known to have laughing fits in which the rest of our family come to see if we're okay or if we've lost our minds.

The Stephanie Plum Series (in order written):

One for the Money

Two for the Dough

Three to Get Deadly

Four to Score

High Five

Hot Six

Seven Up

Hard Eight

Visions of Sugar Plums (between-the-numbers holiday novella)

To the Nines

Ten Big Ones

Eleven on Top

Twelve Sharp

Plum Lovin' (between-the-numbers holiday novella)

Lean Mean Thirteen

Plum Lucky (between-the-numbers holiday novella)

Fearless Fourteen

Plum Spooky (between-the-numbers novel)

Finger Lickin' Fifteen

Sizzling Sixteen

Smokin' Seventeen

Explosive Eighteen

Notorious Nineteen

Takedown Twenty

Top Secret Twenty-One

Tricky Twenty-Two

*Stephanie Plum has also appeared in four holiday novellas.

The first book of the series, One For the Money, was made into a movie starring Katherine Heigl as Stephanie Plum.

(Janet has written other books outside of the Stephanie Plum series and I loved them all too!)

If you love to laugh, you have to read Janet Evanovich's books.

Original Sin (A Sally Sin Adventure)

by Beth McMullen

I picked up this book at my local Borders when it was going out of business, and I'm sure glad I did! I absolutely love this book.

First of all, I can't believe this is Beth McMullen's first book it's so good!

I love the idea of a mom who used to be a spy. The story line is great, and the book had me laughing and guessing right from the beginning. It appealed to me on many different levels; the spy world fascinates me, the young mom is something I can relate to, the style of the writing is great, the list goes on and on!

I highly recommend this book, I give it 5/5 stars!

The Devil in the Junior League

by Linda Francis Lee

This is a book I wasn't sure I'd love and probably wouldn't have chosen right away, but it was another one I found for a few bucks and wanted to give a try.

Again, glad I did!

I wasn't sure I'd be able to relate to a Southern, well to do woman at all, but boy was I wrong. The characters were all written so well, and I really felt for the main character, Fredericka (all her friends call her Frede.) I loved the little twists thrown in, and I felt very "You Go Girl!" as I got deeper into the story.

My rating: 5/5

Bluegrass Series

I got the first book of this series, Bluegrass State of Mind, for free on my Kindle. I read the book in one sitting and fell in love with the characters and the town! I immediately went and bought the next two books and read them. Again, I was in love!

Each book has a different person as the main character, but they are all part of each story and take place in charming Keenestown, Kentucky. By the end of the first book you'll wish you could visit Keenestown and hang out with everyone!

Kathleen Brooks did such a wonderful job writing this series, I'm now a huge fan.

She started another series that stems from this one, calles the Bluegrass Brothers. There is one book out so far called Bluegrass Undercover, and again it was great! I can't wait to read about the rest of the brothers.

Check out Goodreads.com!

A great site for those who love to read.

I found this website called Goodreads, it's a sort of social site for readers. You can get book recommendations, join groups, read reviews, take part in a challenge, mark books "to-read" or just keep track of books you've read.

      I've got Stephanie Plum on my mystery series list. Hadn't thought about her as Chick Lit before.

      @SimplySara LM: I remember I read a book by Susan Mallery that was awesome. I haven't read Susan Elizabeth Philips, I'll have to look into her books.

      I enjoy Janet Evanovich big time! Sophie Kinsella, Susan Mallery, and Susan Elizabeth Phillips have been great on Audiobooks. I appreciate the recommendations in this lens!

      Please check out an author named Devin O'Branagan. Her work has been compared to Janet Evanovich especially her Red Hot Property and Red Hot Liberty books. Creating memorable characters is her strong point.

      Chick lit is such good fun, a light breezy read when I want to relax.

      I like your progress on GoodReads. I need to keep up my reading on there better. I forget to go there.
