Chick Lit

I usually read Chick-lit. If you are like me and would like some recommendations, do read my list. I've read so many similar stories and sometimes I mix them up so this list is gonna take some time to write.

The Devil Wears Prada
Last Night at Chateau Marmont
Everyone Worth Knowing
This 3 books are by Lauren Weisberger. The Devil Wears Prada was good. The other two are not so.

Dear John
The Notebook
The Wedding
3 books by Nicholas Sparks. Stopped reading after the 3rd one cos I didn't find the other titles interesting. Any to recommend? I don't want too cliche stories. I want one with a twist.

Of this 3, I liked "Dear John" the best. It is one of my favourite books. It's just so realistic and very very saddening. It makes my heart break thinking about John and his wasted years :(

The Wedding is actually a continuation of The Notebook, except that Noah is old-age already and the story is focused on his daughter and her husband.

Diary of a Married Call Girl
Diary of a Jetsetting Call Girl
Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl
This 3 books are by Tracy Quan. I liked the way the stories are written and the story is quite unique. I bought Diary of a Manhattan Call Girl first, as that is the first book in the series and bought the other other 2 after reading it because I loved it. It was kinda embarrassing to read it in the MRT though, because of the revealing picture on the front cover. From what I know, there are only 3 books for this series. Hope Tracy releases the 4th one soon :)

Wedding Babylon - Confessions of a wedding planner
The book was interesting, however without a solid storyline. It describes a period of time of a wedding planner's life and it was engaging. However, nothing really happened from the start to the end of the book. But still, it's a good read.

A cup of comfort for Couples
Boring. I read halfway and decided not to continue anymore. Consist of many short stories, but most of the stories had no point it it. Just old couples relating their memories which isn't especially romantic nor story-worthy.

The Accidental Proposal
This book started out very unengaging but towards the middle it keeps you hooked because you so want to know what is actually happening. Not bad.

Kate's Wedding
I love this book about 2 different girls with happenings that lead up to their wedding day. It was eventful and a good easy read. I also liked the little story sectioned inside about the wedding gown shop owner and her little love story. I felt that the story is realistic and lets you in to the thoughts of different people.

Love is on the air
The female lead has been with her boyfriend for 6 years already but is not truly happy. The relationship seems to be in a rut. Nothing's going wrong but everything seems to be too comfortable and passionless. She meets a man that is supposingly "the-one" on a holiday and wonders if it's true love or just a wrong feel. Interesting.

Men I've loved before
Havent start reading yet.

The good, the bad, and the dumped.
Love this book about a lady who was proposed by her boyfriend who is steady and everything great but wonders what life would have been like if she had stayed with any of her exes. She went to track them down via facebook but ends up risking her current fiance. I felt that it is a very unique story. Should read!

One Day
Abit too "arty-farty" for me already. Halfway through the book and nothing much has happened. Stopped reading it.

Calling Romeo
Havent started reading.

The truth about you
Havent started reading.

The Wedding Planner
Just finished reading it. Started off quite dull but soon revealed many interesting twists and I was hooked! Many plots and it was engaging right till the end :) I like this book alot!

The Bride Stripped Bare
Erm, mildly interesting, but didn't leave a strong impact on me.

Some of the stories should totally be made into movie films! I can already imagine how it would be like. Wish I had lots of money so that I can produce it!
