I love to read and I read a lot. I don’t know if Chick Lit is an official genre. But I think my favorite types of books fall into that category. I love historical fiction, romance, drama, adventure. Mysteries and thrillers aren’t my favorite, although I do enjoy a good ghost story.
Today I was driving along and noticed that leaves are already starting to fall from some of the trees. It reminded me that Autumn is almost here. Now’s the time to get our Kindle Wish Lists filled for the long Winter months when we’re stuck inside. And for the warm weather vacations we’re definitely going to take!
I hope you enjoy the books I’ve listed. Even if the stories themselves don’t appeal to you right off the bat, take a look at other books that these authors have written. Happy Reading!

A Woman of Substance
This is one of my favorite books of all time! Historical Fiction at its best. Emma Harte loses her family and her great love. But she pulls herself up and goes on to build her empire. You will be so inspired by her strength and determination!
I love everything Maeve Binchy ever wrote, God rest her soul. She draws you in until you genuinely care for every single character and never want it to end. This book will remind you how great it feels to embrace new people and experiences.
The Woman Who Stole My Life
Marian Keyes can tell a story! Her characters always end up in the most unique situations. She’s one author that consistently delivers and makes me laugh out loud!
What She Wants
Cathy Kelly draws you in from the very beginning. She writes about life and family so well. You become attached to her characters because they’re so relatable.
That Month In Tuscany
This is the first book I’ve read from this author and it swept me away! If you’ve ever considered running away from your life for a bit, give this one a try.
I’m so glad I read these before it became a TV series. If you like, romance, time travel, action, adventure and more, you will not be disappointed!
Looking for a great Beach Read? Elin Hildebrand ROCKS them! Add this one to your vacation or Summertime reading list. She will draw you in quickly with her simple yet captivating writing style!
I so wish that Rosamunde Pilcher would have written more books. She’s perfect for those cloudy days in the dead of Winter, when you want to cuddle up for days and savor every word.
This book is just a nice story, just like everything else LaVyrle Spencer ever wrote. It’s a beautiful Historical Romance. And just like all of her stories, it will stay with you long after you put the book down.
Find yourself a cold, cloudy day and a big comfy chair. Then, make yourself a big cup of tea and dive in. This is the first, and my favorite, of the five books in the Werner Family Saga. You have to read this.
Here Come The Girls
I love cruises. I love being on them, talking about them, thinking about them, reading about them, you name it! This is a light and easy read that’s a lot of fun. Take a look at Milly Johnson’s other books too. She’s great for when you’re not looking for anything too heavy.
I read this one recently and loved it! Part of me judged the main character for being incredibly selfish while the other part admired her courage. I love when a book makes me feel lots of things. There’s a connection to this book and the TV show, Younger but I’ve never watched the show.
