2. Books must be Christian fiction, or "clean" fiction to be eligible for this read.
3. Books are chosen using Random.org to make it completely fair.
3. One nomination per person.

Does Nicholas Sparks qualify as "Chick Lit"? If so, I'd like to nominate The Lucky One. If not, I'll keep thinking.

Diane U (djuseless) | 1411 comments Most definitely! I am reading it now and I saw the movie so I know it's clean reading.

Here's the thing...I probably read a lot of these books but really don't know the Chick Lit genre per name much anyone got a place we can go to see some titles in this genre?

Now that I think about, in the movie, there was an intimate scene but I have not got that far in the book myself to say that (1) it is in the book or (2) how descriptive the scene gets. So if it is chosen, I think I may post a warning just in case so people do not get offended. I will have finished the book by then since my book club meets on June 14th.
