Ooh, great giveaway! Congrats on making the 700 club.

Hm, what would I like to see more of here? Truth be told, I think you ladies do a pretty great job at covering all the bases. I wouldn't mind learning a bit more about the women behind the blog - a sneak peak into your world!

Linby said...

I was following you on twitter but now following here too as "linby".
congrats on making the 700 club.
I would like a list of other books that are by the same author as the book you are reviewing.

Melissa said...

Whenever we do reviews, there are books listed at the bottom. If we have more by the same author, we list those. If not, we list books that are similar in style or theme.
Thanks for following!

Congrats on hitting 700!!! And I agree with Talli...it would be nice to see a few behind the scenes posts about you guys!!

Congratulations on reaching 700 - that's fabulous. <'scuse me talking with my mouthful, but those cupcakes are really yummy>

I'm with Talli I love what you do already and it would be nice to know more about *you* and what goes on behind the scenes

It would maybe be interesting to have a 'things to do today to make your writing come alive,' slot - just an inspirational one liner from all the amazing authors you talk to?

Here's hoping you make it to 1000 soon - I'm sure it won't be long1 xx

Kat said...

I have to agree with everyone else and say that I already love what you guys do. I like Sue's idea about inspiration from authors about writing.

Lilian said...


I don't know what I would like to see more of...considering I regularly come back, you guys must be going something right. Maybe a comprehensive page of all the past reviews you've done so that past reviews don't get forgotten in the dust?

Felicia said...

Congratulations on reaching 700! Like someone mentioned above, I'd like to hear a bit about the bloggers, kind of behind the scenes. Otherwise, don't change a thing! I love this blog so much, I follow through email, google reader, twitter and facebook. I guess I'm a blog-stalker. :-O

Lilian said...

oh yes, I forgot to mention I follow by GFC and email~

Kat said...

I agree with everyone else, Knowing a bit about the women behind the blog and also maybe your top 10 in 2012, or 2011 or all time? You do a great job, I follow on facebook under Kat Duncan.

Literary Chanteuse said...

Hooray! 700!
I'm still fairly new to the group but I really enjoy the questions or just posts that everyone can comment on.


Sheena said...

Congrats on 700 Followers! I agree with most of the other comments on learning more about the Women behind the blog. And maybe a occasional recipe or two like you guys did back in Dec? I follow the blog on Facebook

Woohoo- 700! I love reading reviews and fun interviews with the featured authors, and I think the idea of having a listing of past reviews is a good one. I foolow via email and fb:

Shannon said...

Congratulations on the 700! I am one of the new ones from twitter ;)

I might just be able to do a search for it, but it would be nice under Reviews to have a listing by author to read reviews of. I just like getting to information lots of different ways.

Thanks for the blog!

Na said...

Woot! Congratulations on making it to 700 (and beyond)! I want those cupcakes...my sweet tooth is just calling for them.

For your blog, I would like to see more recomendations of similar books and/or author. For books you feature or review, it would be nice to see suggestions of similar books readers can enjoy (if suggestions are available). Sort of like: If you enjoy "What Alice Forgot" by Liane Moriarty you might like ...

mep said...

Congratulations! I love the insight into the authors as real people and, of course, the giveaways. Keep up the awesome work! What would I like to see more of? Maybe more about how you decide which books and authors to feature ...

Lynn's Romance Enthusiasm said...

I have to agree with most all the sentiments that others have mentioned. If I was going to say add something to your blog what about a review of a Chick flick every once-in-awhile. Congrats on your milestone.

Linda Kish said...

Congrats on the 700. I like you just the way you are.

Lisa said...

Big Congrats ladies!

I enjoy movies as much as I enjoy chick lit, so it'd be awesome if u also did reviews on chick flicks/ romantic comedy movies.

StereoQueenBee said...

I have nothing to say - you're my favorite blog. Congrats on 700.

I follow you everywhere.

Congrats on the 700 club! haha Love the reviews! I agree a few behind the scenes posts would be fun!


Erica said...

I follow on twitter and thru email.

Like to see even more reviews and give-aways! But you guys do a great job already.

Jeryl M. said...

I agree that you should recommend similar books and that you should talk about, review and or read chick flicks sometimes.

I am a Facebook follower.


ails said...

Congratulations ladies, you do a fab job, but I would like to see more Giveaways worldwide and not US and Canada only.

Well done on reaching (more than) 700 followers :)

I have to admit I'm a sucker for top 5 or 10 lists (eg. Top 10 romantic quotes, top 5 characters we love to hate), I like seeing how other's opinions differ or are the same as mine. Particularly the reasoning behind them is interesting, why some made the list and others didn't.

Rebecca (RivkaBelle) said...

Those cupcakes look amazing, haha...

CONGRATS on reaching 700! That's literally 10-times as many followers as my blog, and I am officially in awe :o)

Hmm...I think y'all have a great mix of things already on the blog, actually. I'm not sure what I'd "add"...If anything, I guess something along the lines of what Talli said: a little better glimpse at y'all, and y'all's world/way of blogging. Fun stuff like Top 10 books or reading snacks or something? But really, y'all do an amazing job as is (thus the follower count!) :o)

I follow by GFC as RivkaBelle


Nina said...

It's hard to say what I'd like to see more of, because you guys so often have quality posts! (I love a blog I can check almost everyday and see something new each time!) I love hearing about how authors got their start, or checking out books by debut authors, so something relating to that I would certainly read! I follow you guys on twitter (NinaSacc)

Kristen said...

I think you guys are great! I'm still pretty new, but my only suggestion would be if there was someway to archive the reviews (by author or title) so we could look access older reviews? But thanks for everything - I've really enjoyed the blog!

I follow with this email address:

The Book Chick said...

Congratulations, ladies! I've been a follower since the very beginning and am incredibly happy about that!

I would love to see a sidebar feature telling us what each of you is reading at the moment so that I know which books to pick up next!

I really enjoy your blog! I can't think of anything else that needs to be added. I do like the idea of learning more about all of you!


Krystal Lynn said...

Congrats! I don't know what kind of missing piece I'd want to see on this blog. I like the reviews, the giveaways, the interaction, it's great, it runs smoothly.. Maybe a list of "if you liked this, you'll love these books" BUT you do already have something like that! lol The only other thing I can think of is to have some sort of book club for members? I really don't know! I like this blog too much. :)


Tiffany Drew said...

Woohoo! Congrats on all of your followers, you deserve it!

I have to agree that the only thing I would like to see more of is more about you guys! I follow you many ways, but mainly on GFC as Tiffany Drew :)

On a side note- Melissa A., I can't believe that baby girl of yours is already turning one! Didn't the time just fly by?


Kim W. said...

Congrats on the 700 followers!!! You guys are amazing!

The only thing I would like to see is a BOOK CLUB!! :D

Jencey Gortney said...

You know I don't know what I would say to do more of. I love visiting this site each day. Congrats on getting 700 followers. :) Continue marching on and I look forward to the new authors you will introduce us to.

I would like to see more contests that are open to Canadians.

kaewink said...

700 followers! (actually 710 already :) ). Wow! Congratulations!

I, too, have no idea what there should be more here. I loooove coming here and I usually leave wth a new book to put onto my tbr-pile :D.
The only thing I can think about now, is that a page with links to the past reviews sometimes would be good (sorted by title or author, or so). But then I also know that this is probably a lot of work!

I´m really happy, that I found Chick Lit Central!

Sherry said...

Not sure what else I would like to see --I really love this Blog as in. Maybe top 10 list for winter and summer--Although I usually end up reading those later since I am catching up on last years list --LOL--Keep up the Great work.

chonkita said...

It's been a long time since I last came here, but I follow you on facebook, and now, also in your blog.
I love what you already do, love to read news on books, so I can decide what to read next.
Thank you very much

Susan @ The Book Bag said...

Congrats on the 700!! I can't think of anything to suggest that you differently - I love all that you do! I do love reading how writers get their ideas and how their stories came to be.

Keep up the good work!

Sarka said...

Congratulations! Next, the Mile High club. J/k. I would love to see the "u" in "Contact us" capitalized like the "U" in "About Us." I think the poor contact "u" is developing an inferiority complex. :(


Anjana said...

Congrats on the 700!

I love CLC just the way it is but since I have to suggest something, like the others mentioned, it would be easy if you have books of similar themes/ratings listed along with a review.
