Top Ten Tuesday: Top 10 ALL TIME Favourite Chick Lit Books

'Top Ten Tuesday' is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. I love making lists, so this feature fits me perfectly! If you also take part in this feature or have any additions to my lists, please get in touch; I'd love to hear from you!
Top 10 ALL TIME Favourite Chick Lit Books

Oh my, how difficult is this week's Top Ten list?! I always find it incredibly difficult when people ask me what some of my all time favourite books are. Of course there are a few favourites in there that will always be there, such as 'Harry Potter' and 'Pride and Prejudice', but I still find it a really tricky question to just pick a few books. However, I tried my best and below you'll find a few of my personal all time favourite chick lit novels.

Be sure to share your own TTT list by leaving a comment below!

1. 'Wish Upon a Star' - Olivia Goldsmith

One of my very first chick lit reads and also one of the reasons why I fell in love with the genre, so I guess this novel definitely deserves a spot on this list.

2. 'Something Borrowed' - Emily Giffin

I actually fell in love with the film version first and then read the book and fell even more in love with that. A true chick lit classic!

3. 'From Notting Hill with Love... Actually' - Ali McNamara

If I would give a Chick Lit 101 class (how cool would that be?!) Ali McNamara's 'From Notting Hill with Love... Actually' would definitely be on the reading list.

4. 'Wickham Hall' - Cathy Bramley

Cathy Bramley undoubtedly deserves a spot on this list, but I wasn't sure about which novel to pick. I read 'Wickham Hall' last and loved every page of it, so decided to go with that one.

5. 'The Notebook' & 'A Walk to Remember' - Nicholas Sparks

I wouldn't really describe Nicholas Sparks' works as chick lit, but at the same time I couldn't leave his novels off this list. I love love love his writing and several of his books belong to my all time favourite reads.

6. 'I Heart New York' - Lindsey Kelk

One of the best chick lit book series ever and Lindsey Kelk is such a funny and simply fantastic author. Still waiting for this series to be turned into a TV show, that's how good it is.

7. 'Queen of Babble' - Meg Cabot

Love Meg Cabot, love this series.

8. 'Where Rainbows End' - Cecelia Ahern

Another one of my all time favourite authors and such a gorgeous story this is <3

9. 'Eligible' - Curtis Sittenfeld

A recent modern-day retelling of Jane Austen 'Pride and Prejudice' and a thoroughly entertaining and simply amazing one.

10. 'Blogger Girl' - Meredith Schorr
A great example of good chick lit and I'm really curious to read more of Meredith Schorr's work in the future.


  1. Yes! Anything by Nicholas Sparks. :)

  2. I LOVE Something Borrowed (Something Blue not AS much). Also, YES to A Walk to Remember and The Notebook. Nicholas Sparks may be considered a guilty pleasure, but I don't care... those 2 books are amazing!

    1. Definitely, Michelle! I also like 'Something Blue', but not as much as the first one. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I loved Something Borrowed, but I loved Something Blue even more! Great List :D My Top Ten Tuesday!

  4. I'm quite interested in Eligible because I love Pride and Prejudice! Do you like Sophie Kinsella's books? She is my favourite chick-lit writer.
    Check out my post :)

    1. Definitely check out 'Eligible' if you can, it's a great retelling of a classic! I love Sophie Kinsella as well, she's a great author!

  5. I'm not big into chick lit, so I haven't read most of these. A couple of them look like books I would enjoy, though. Thanks for the recs!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Susan, perhaps you'll find something that you like, you never know!
