Hi dear friends!
Today is the 29th day of our challenge with Collector of Book Boyfriends.
Topic today: women fiction.
I had to think about it as I read many books written by women featuring female MC and usually written for women. But I wanted someone else. Someone who wrote chick lit but chick lit making you think about some serious topics too! Some authors I haven’t already spoken about.
And I found one author that, right alongside Marian Keyes I read years ago and who perfectly fits the bill.
My winner is Jane Green!
One of my favorite books is Jemima J
Jemima Jones is overweight. About one hundred pounds overweight. Treated like a maid by her thin and social-climbing roommates, and lorded over by the beautiful Geraldine (less talented but better paid) at the Kilburn Herald, Jemima finds that her only consolation is food. Add to this her passion for her charming, sexy, and unobtainable colleague Ben, and Jemima knows her life is in need of a serious change. When she meets Brad, an eligible California hunk, over the Internet, she has the perfect opportunity to reinvent herself–as JJ, the slim, beautiful, gym-obsessed glamour girl. But when her long-distance Romeo demands that they meet, she must conquer her food addiction to become the bone-thin model of her e-mails–no small feat.
With a fast-paced plot that never quits and a surprise ending no reader will see coming, Jemima J is the chronicle of one woman’s quest to become the woman she’s always wanted to be, learning along the way a host of lessons about attraction, addiction, the meaning of true love, and, ultimately, who she really is.
I recall light reads but with serious undertone .
Marian Keyes is another winner especially with this stunning book as I never saw it coming: Anybody Out There?
Anna Walsh is officially a wreck. Physically broken and emotionally shattered, she lies on her parents’ Dublin sofa with only one thing on her mind: getting back to New York. New York means her best friends, The Most Fabulous Job In The World™ and above all, it means her husband, Aidan.
But nothing in Anna’s life is that simple anymore… Not only is her return to Manhattan complicated by her physical and emotional scars – but Aidan seems to have vanished. Is it time for Anna to move on? Is it even possible for her to move on? A motley group of misfits, an earth-shattering revelation, two births and one very weird wedding might help Anna find some answers – and change her life forever.
And you who is your women fiction author?
Thanks for reading.
