Chick Lit Review

I had a chance to read some great "Chick Literature" over vacation. This series I found particularly amusing about a girl, Chelsea, and her crazy family/ life.
Chelsea Handler's first book My Horizontal Life is a little crude, but hilarious. She definitely spends some time experimenting with different types of guys and has interesting friendships along the way.

When I saw this title, I thought of one of my childhood favorites Are you there God, It's Me Margaret by Judy Blume. This book was way beyond the innocent content of Blume's, but chronicles the adventures of the same character (Chelsea) from My Horizontal Life.

Overall, if you are looking for some laugh out loud, somewhat raunchy, humor to spice up your day, reading this series would be a good idea to cure the winter blues.

PS... I think "the talk" always goes better when it comes up organically. I will keep my fingers crossed that he brings it up or that it comes up naturally :)
