Amina If you're interested in desi lit, check out the South Asian Literature group! http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/4...

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.

Whitney Hey I spotted Frederica by Georgette Heyer on the list - it doesn't match the requirements of the list.


message 4: by Noorilhuda (new)

Noorilhuda Thanks, sent a message to the voters/ adders. Fingers crossed on whether it will get off!


message 5: by Charlotte (new)

Charlotte Ledger I absolutely love The Trouble with Rose and can't recommend it enough. It's so funny but also moving and really looks at what it's like to be a modern British Indian woman. Please read it! I need people to talk to about it!
