Yup Another Challenge: 10 in '10 Teen Chick Lit

I've signed up for the 10 in '10 Teen Chick Lit Challenge hosted by blogger Jessica and author Kay Cassidy. I need to pick 10 chick lit books to read.

Read here for more information on the challenge!

I thought this challenge sounded like a lot of fun and I think some lighter, entertaining reads will be good to have in between other books or right after a depressing or awful book.

Here's my list. As usual it's all YA, all about people of color :) I'm going for 12 books but I'm listing many books to give me some options and to remind me that they need to be read and reviewed. I also added three off color chick lit books that I really want to read.

1. Who You Wit by Paula Chase
2. Honey Blonde Chica by Michelle Serros
3. Hotlanta by Denee Milner & Mitzi Miller
4. It Chicks: Sixteen Candles by Tia Williams
5. Drama High: The Fight by L. Divine
6. Haters by Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez
7. How to Salsa in a Sari by Dona Sarkar
8. Hallway Diaries by Felicia Pride, Debbie Rigaud and Karen Valentin
9. Girl vs. Boy by Yvonne Collins and Sally Rideout
10. Bad Kitty by Michele Jaffe
11. Amor and Summer Secrets by Diana Rodriguez Wallach
12. Jason & Kyra by Dana Davidson
13. The Cinderella Society by Kay Cassidy (off-color I believe)
14. Samurai Girl by Carrie Asai (is this chick lit?)
15. The Naughty List by Suzanne Young (off-color)
16. Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder (off-color?)
17. Adios to My Old Life by Caridad Ferrar
18. The Kids at Latimar High by Deborah Copeland

I've read a few books on this list but it's been a really long time since I read them and I know I enjoyed most of them (a few I can't remember), others are sitting in my tbr pile patiently waiting to be noticed. Let me know if you have any recommendations or think a book on my list does not qualify as chick lit!


  1. Dont you just love challenges. I want to join them all. Except this one. I really really cannot stand chic-lit, so this challenge isnt for me. But some of your picks look really good. And Poision Study is one of my favorites books ever. Hope you like it!!!

  2. Am considered lazy because I basically systematically turn to your lists for recs? :-D

    Just to make sure, we get a year, right? Cause I'm also working another list of yours, and taking up the LGBTQ challenge as well.


    Nath. Oh and, Happy New Year! Peace, success and much happiness!

  3. I can send you a whole pile of these this year. I just finished Nikki Carter's It's All Good and am starting Deborah Copeland's The Kids at Latimer High--reviewing them for MultiCultural Review along with Lyah B. LeFlore's The World Is Mine (a Male Monday candidate). Would you like them when I'm done?

  4. Great to have you aboard! And thanks so much for including The Cinderella Society on your list. It's definitely multi-cultural (though telling you more would spoil some of the fun). ;-)

  5. Happy New Year everyone!!!

    @iluvhersheys-I love challenges! I thought you wanted to read Jason& Kyra? And Ni-Ni Simone's books are considered chick lit as well :) It's not all bad, I like it andsome of these I've read and they were good (Loved adios to My Old Life, Amor and Summer secrets and the It Chicks series).

    @Nathalie-You can definitely use my lists anytime! I would ask to use your lists as well :) So gald to hear you're participating in the GLBT challenge, I'm pumped for it.

    @Lyn-I've been wondering if It's All Good is any good, I'll wait to read your review on it (or you can just email me your thoughts). If you liked it, I'll try it. have The Kids at Latimar High, I'll add it to this list.

    @Kay-Thanks for stoppoing by and I'm so ready for this challenge! It's good to hear The Cinderella Society is multi-cultural and I'm eagerly awaiting its release date :D

  6. @MissAttitude: thanks and of course I return the favor. You're a mine of knowledge! :)

  7. I really want to read Poison Study and The Cinderella Society! Both sound really interesting.


I love to hear from you!! Thank you for sharing :) And don't be Anon, I try to always reply back and I like to know who I'm replying to ;)
