Chick Lit With a More Serious Tone

Having recently assisted at the library’s Chick Lit Book Discussion group a couple weeks back, I came away with a new Chick Lit Author, Jane Green to give a try. I took home her most recent title Family Pictures.

Many of my beloved authors (Marian Keyes, Jennifer Weiner, Meg Cabot), who write in this genre, tend to keep things lighthearted and fun, Green’s story was both full of that playful, fast-paced style yet she weaves in a more serious tone, which I came away appreciating. I was refreshed by the realness of the different generations of female characters she introduces through the two families in this story. Real life issues are dealt with in this story, and yet there’s still enough of that enjoyable escapism that draws me to a Chick Lit story, to keep my interest. You’ll walk away from this book feeling as content as the characters are with the outcome of their life decisions. I’ll definitely be picking up another Jane Green book
