Always about trendy twentysomething bitches whining about their jobs or relationships.
Comes from the words chick and literature
Many girls relate to Chick Lit because they are just as shallow as the characters in the books.
Lit - Literature
Similar to a chickflick in that it usually attracts a female audience. A chicklit is a story that is usually posted online by a budding (usually female) author on sites such as fictionpress. They are usually romantic, dramatic, and funny. However, chicklit also refers to a book with a similar romantic-comedy theme. No matter how cliche, a good chicklit can be very addicting.
M -No, but you should totally read this other chicklit that's about this girl who is totally in love with this boy who doesn't know she exists!
