    I just finished the audio version (LOVE audible, by the way!) and thought the same as you in the beginning but it turned out to be pretty good in the end. Granted, a little "far-fetched" but with Becky always expect the unexpected!

    I just finished it, and you're right, bluey, it did get a lot better in the end. But personally, I would wait until it comes out in paperback to get it. Save a few bucks.

    And by the way, to the Fort bluey! I hope to see you around sometime.

    *ahem* Hello, my name is AJane, and I'm a new convert to chick lit.

    Seriously, a girl at work loaned me Confessions of a Shopaholic, and I hid in the bathtub all weekend with it. It provided some much-needed laughs (and fashion advice ). Guilty pleasure, indeed (plus I was so thrilled to see that Kinsella's heroine is a fellow Eastenders fan ). I may have to pick up the Bridget Jones books now.

    AJ I have to say that of the Shopaholic series I liked Confessions the best. Manhattan and Ties the Knot annoyed me. Maybe I just wasn't in the right frame of mind to read them. I have yet to read And Sister yet though.

    I know what you mean. I was a little at first, until I realized that I didn't care if the Book Police thought less of me for reading something fun. You really MUST read the Bridget Jones books, AJane. Helen Fielding is sooo funny.

    I'm really late coming to this thread, but I ADORE chick lit! Not only am I a fan, I'm also an author. LOL!

    My faves are Jennifer Weiner, Carole Matthews, Sophie Kinsella, and Laura Caldwell. Just to name a few...

    Hey guys, I'll post soon on the books I've read recently (not as many as usual-- holidays and lots of work cutting into my reading time ) but I wanted to ask:

    I've been looking for a book called Dress Rehearsel by Jennifer O'Connel (I think, I have to look it up again, and it's been sold out of the stores nearby. I can order it of course, but that's not as fun.

    It must be sold out because it's popular, I know US Weekly featured it as a "pick of the week", I'm always so happy when I see a chick-lit book featured. Has anyone here read it/bought it yet?

    Johanna, can't wait for your book to hit the shelves!

    Okay, since my last post, I bought said book and finished reading it last night.

    This was a really good one gals, I highly recommend it!
