1. Which review on Chick Lit Central spoke out to you and caused you to purchase the book? What was it about the review that prompted this purchase?

Jen Lancaster's Jeneration X. I was convinced that it would be such a hilarious read (I can live with more humor), so I had to pick up a copy! I read it last month when I was in between "horror" books so I wouldn't be depressed...

3. Since the end of the year is almost here, tell us which book you're looking forward to in 2013.
Lauren Olvier's Requiem!

Preet said...

Gaah! 900 is quite an accomplishment! Way to go CLC!

I have answers for all three questions, but will only answer number one.

1.I have bought three books after reading reviews on CLC. They are:
1.Free Gift With Purchase by Jackie Pilossoph,
2.Yours Truly by Kirsty Greenwood,
and 3. Blackberry Winter by Sarah Jio.

All three reviews were written brilliantly. I felt as if I had to buy and read them right away. Of course I bought them, but haven't read them yet. :p

I follow you guys on facebook and twitter using my first and last name Chanpreet Singh.

This is so fabulous ladies! Congratulations!

Reading the comments have made me realize that I am also reallllly looking forward to Sarah Dessen's new novel (I think we *might* get a title tomorrow!) Thinking about it, she might be the author that kind of led me to chick lit as I grew up. Interesting revelation right there! :)
