2011 Chick Lit Challenge - I am in!

The lovely Samantha of "Chick Lit Plus" is running a Chick Lit Reading Challenge in 2011. Read twelve chick lit books, including at least two by debut authors, in 2011. I think this will go well with Jennie's 111 in 2011 challenge, so I'm in! If you'd like to be in too, click the link above and sign up!

I'll list my twelve planned books here (I'll fill in the gaps below as I go along), and will include a brief review once they're read. This is not necessarily the order in which I'll be reading: that depends on my mood at the time. :)

I'll be reading:
  1. "London is the Best City in America" by Laura Dave
  2. "The Opposite of Love" by Julie Buxbaum - read Jan 2-4, 2011: gorgeous writing but I somehow didn't connect with the main character to the degree I wanted to
  3. "Six Weeks to Toxic" by Louisa Mccormack
  4. "Reunion" by J.L. Penn
  5. "The Goddess of Fried Okra" by Jean Brashear
  6. "The Blonde Theory" by Kristen Harmel
  7. "According to Jane" by Marilyn Brant
  8. "Faking It" by Jennifer Crusie
  9. "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult
  10. another something
  11. a book by a debut 2011 author
  12. a book by a debut 2011 author
I plan to do about one a month for this challenge, but if I get hepped up I'll go through them faster. After all, I need to be reading more than two a week to get to 111 by December 31, 2011!

This is going to be quite the year. Reading lots, writing lots, and maybe taking the occasional break. Just occasional, though. :)
