Oh, isn't this lovely? Today's papers are, ahem, hating on chick lit. That's so funny -- me too!

The term "chick lit" is thrown around without any sense of a serious problem. [Letters to the Editor, LA Times]

What I like to read on the beach are books about women's lives as they are lived, full of domestic detail and truthful emotion. This makes me a candidate for what we dismissively call "chick lit", but with rare exceptions the stuff sitting in pink-packaged piles is neither honest nor engrossing; just lazy fiction tossed off with an eye to the women's market and as sickly and unsatisfying as candyfloss. [Sarah Crompton, UK Telegraph]
