I see great things happening for Chick Lit in the future. I feel like the more women or men know about chick lit, the happier everyone will be. Chick Lit makes you feel good inside after reading a Chick Lit book. It makes you laugh, makes you cry, makes you mad (certain situations). The stories Chick Lit authors create as well as the characters, makes you feel like you know each and every single individual. I feel like I'm right there next to the characters. I love the feeling of reading Chick Lit books. I can't wait to see what others will say! :)

I see chick lit being re-defined by a new generation of empowered women who do not take a back seat to the men in their lives. I see Chick Lit being driven by intelligent women who are using technology and self-publishing to reach more people, not just the mainstream.

Congratulations on 1000 followers. This sounds like such a great book to read. I love anything that takes me away from my boring same old thing day after day life. I am new to the term Chick Lit. I didn't know what it was until a couple years ago. I love this genre and see more and more fans as time goes by. They are such interesting books to read. I think most women can relate to the stories in one way or another. I'ld like to thank all the wonderful authors who write these books and of course thanks to you and other bloggers like Book Mama for sharing different authors and books to read. I know I wouldn't know how to find some of these that I have enjoyed reading. I follow on all your social media sites.

I absolutely adore chick lit from the very first time I read what was called “chick lit.” It is at the top of my reading genres and I’m totally hooked. I think that the sky is the limit for chick lit. Just look at the wonderful best selling chick lit authors out there. They are setting records in the selling of chick lit books.

Three cheers for chick lit and I will be the first to sing it from the rooftops!

Thanks for the contest

Kaley @ Books Etc. said...

Chick lit isn't going anywhere any time soon. Why do I think that? Because it seems like we've been having this same general conversation for a few years. We all know how awesome chick lit is! I think that we might see a bit of a resurgence in chick lit, like it used to be many years ago. Indie/self published authors are helping bring the awesomeness that is chick lit to the forefront, I think. I also think the stories themselves might change a little bit. Maybe slightly less "finding a man" and a little bit more "finding myself". Who really knows what will happen? I, for one, am excited to see what comes next for our favourite genre!

Congrats CLC on getting 1000 followers! If any blog deserves it, it's this one. I seriously enjoy reading this blog, the reviews are excellent and very helpful when deciding which book would interest me most. So, I raise a glass (more likely a mug of coffee) to everyone there at CLC, creators and contributors alike!

I see chick lit growing a wider fan base in the future. I also see more and more women becoming empowered; as their favorite character in chick lit novels are, and standing up for themselves and being more comfortable being themselves, whomever they may be. I don't see an end to the chick lit genre - more of an awakening - and thank goodness because there are many fans that would miss it, including me!

I follow CLC on FB (Jess Bair), I also follow on Twitter (sweetieJB15).

Chick Lit is only getting better and better the more time goes on. I think as more people start reading it, you'll get a lot more variety as well. It may not always be about love or romance, but strong female characters with a bit of humor will always be popular!

I've been following your blog for a while now and love it :)

I see chick lit becoming a bit edgier, with a bit tougher women at the center of the stories. Perhaps the stories will focus more on the chicks and a bit less on the romances they encounter. It will be interesting to see where it goes!
