Noorilhuda There are so many books on this list that do not conform to the traditional meaning of 'chick-lit' genre - romantic comedy dealing with women - there are historicals and other stuff on this list. Maybe, chick-lit has been taken to mean feminist literature / work of women writers - in which case I humbly submit my debut e-novel too:

The Governess by Noorilhuda

There's an interesting initiative too - maybe you girls have heard about it - #readwomen2014 - covered in this piece by Guardian:
http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandsty...

Btw, this list has some very good books.
