    OK, anything by....

    Lisa Jewell
    Dorothy Koomson
    Jill Mansell
    Carol Matthews
    Adele Parks
    Jane Green
    Louise Bagshawe
    Tilly Bagshawe
    Jane Fallon

    A really good one, though not chick lit, is One Day by David Nicholls. Just been made into a film.

    Think I have read every book written by all the above and love them all!

    Katie price fiction books! Although im not a fan of her, (and she doesnt actually write the books) the books are really good and i wasnt able to put them down. Ive flown through loads since ive been pregnant.
    By her fiction books i mean, Crystal, Angel, Saphire, Comeback girl etc.
    She's just brought a new christmas one out that involves the character 'Angel', called 'Santa Baby'. Im looking forward to reading this :) x

    Oooh Marian Keyes books are brilliant and for pure trash read some Jilly Cooper!!

    I enjoy Jodie Picoult books although some are quite hard going in the topics they cover.

    Happy reading (you've inspired me to head to the library I want to re-read all of Jilly Coopers books again!)

    Jodi picoult books always, always disappoint me with their endings. I don't know why I continue to read them lol! Marian Keyes has already been mentioned, but in particular read rachels holiday and anybody out there? I've prob read them about 10 times each! shame you couldn't come raid my bookshelf lol take a look, pretty much all of it is trashy chick lit with a few 'serious' ones chucked in. oh and I dunno if ur into this kinda stuff but the true blood books are amazing xxxx

    she was the other author i couldn't think of, anybody out there had me bawling like a baby...... true blood don;t think i have tried.

    as for Jodi picoult she has a real talent for writting, but the way some of her books end upsets me..... ahh all is well and good but lets kill them anyway....



    if anybody is looking for a real tear jerker and a real good cry, try Marley and Me, the film doesn't do it justice. then book had me crying with laughter

    I read Marley and Me and was finishing it on the train. I was literally sobbing my heart out. The other passengers were offering me tissues and comforting me. It was so embarrassing. I wasn't even pregnant at the time.

    My 2 fave books are Rachels holiday by Marian Keyes and PS I love you by Cecilia Ahern-far far better than the film. In her shoes by Jennifer Weiner is also good and again better than tthe film. I read a few books every week so could probably go on forever. If you like any kind of crime or thriller Karen Rose is very easy to read. Happy reading hun xxx

    Cecelia Ahern and Jane Green are 2 of my favourites. Love Diane Chamberlain too, same style writing as Jodi Picoult but i find her books better! My Mother in law actually got me into Josephine Cox books too....I didn't think i'd like them but found i couldn't put them down. I will read just about anything....love getting lost in a book!
