Chick Lit

Chick Lit

Do you want to consider issues related to women, but perhaps not with the depth and heaviness that can come in the Women's Fiction ebook genre? Are you looking for something more upbeat and more humorous?  Then, ebooks in the Chick Lit genre are just what you need.  What else do you need?  Free and discounted ebooks in the Chick Lit genre, of course!

 

Definition of the "Chick Lit Genre": The characteristics of an ebook in the Chick Lit genre are that they typically address issues in the contemporary time, and they address womanhood issues for younger women (i.e., the "Chick" in "Chick Lit").  These ebooks are more upbeat and sometimes humorous than typical Women's Fiction or Contemporary Romance ebooks.  In fact, ebooks in the Chick Lit genre don't necessarily have to deal with romance, as that is not a central aspect of the genre.  More important for the protagonist in these ebooks is her relationship with family and friends, and how those relationships help her grow as a woman. 

 

Some examples of bestselling ebooks in the Chick Lit genre are Marian Keyes (Watermelon), Terry McMillan (Waiting to Exhale), and Helen Fielding (Bridget Jones's Diary).

by Sariah Wilson

Bellamy Sullivan’s life is hardly regal. She’s a waitress from Ohio who’s been on her own since she was sixteen, working several jobs while her dreams of being a fashion designer stay just that. But everything changes when PR maven and soon-to-be-royal Lemon Beauchamp drops in to announce that Bellamy is a princess. Unfortunately, Bellamy’s newly assigned bodyguard is the last man she wants to see.

A year ago, the royal family of Monterra tasked Enzo Rannalli with confirming Bellamy’s heritage, which meant he had to get very close to her. Enzo got the confirmation he needed, but he didn’t expect their connection to be so meaningful. And he didn’t expect his sudden departure to break the young princess’s heart.

In exchange for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to kick-start her fashion career, Bellamy agrees to star on a royal reality show that will match her with the world’s most eligible bachelors. But after a series of disastrous dates make her even more grateful for Enzo’s company, she wonders if her fairy-tale ending is waiting to happen off camera.

The Tarkington Treasure (The Charlotte Ross Mysteries Book 4)

by Evelyn Cullet

"In the world of logic, it's always our assumptions that lead us astray."
A spooky old house, rumors of a hidden Civil War treasure, a neighbor’s murder, and an ex-fiancé falling unconscious at her feet—Charlotte Ross has her hands full when she’s invited to stay at her friend, Jane Marshall’s home while her apartment is being renovated.

Jane and her new fiancé have sold everything to move to the large estate she’d just inherited near the small town in Illinois, where she grew up. She’s always loved the house, but the cost of living in, and fixing up, a deteriorating old mansion is more than both their incomes combined. If she can’t come up with the money for the next property tax payment, she’ll be forced to give it up.

Charlotte is intent on winning back her ex, but her efforts are stymied when he’s suspected of murder.

The two couples soon discover the rambling old house holds more than one secret when they join forces to find the real killer—and the elusive, Tarkington treasure.

When Louis mentioned marriage before Sydney even knew his favorite color, she was more than tempted to reach for her running shoes. Will she be able to put her fears aside to follow her heart?
