Chick Lit Month!

May is the first ever International Chick Lit Month. What is Chick Lit you ask? There are all sorts of definitions of what Chick Lit is - but generally Chick Lit is:

  • books written by women for women
  • about a 20-30 year olds
  • humorous
  • light
  • smart and funny
  • about living out regular life issues - men, marriage, work, families
Chick Lit also has many sub genres such as Brit Lit, Work Lit, and Mommy Lit.  More and more chick lit is also making it's way from book form to the theatres.  Popular movies based on chick lit titles include: Bridget Jones Diary, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Sex and the City, The Devil Wears Prada, The Nanny Diaries and the recently released Something Borrowed

The Stratford Public Library has lots of Chick Lit available for loan - and for the rest of the month of May, you will find a book display on the main floor showcasing some of the various titles available.  You can also browse the chick lit tag in our catalogue or the booklists available to find your next read. 

Do you have a favourite Chick Lit title? Why not share it here - and then star rate and comment on it in the library catalogue!
