Chick Lit Uncovered was founded in January 2014 by Elle, former editor of chick-lit website Trashionista. When Trashionista closed in 2013, Elle found that she couldn’t function without a book blog, thus Chick Lit Uncovered was created. Uncovered brings chick-lit fans reviews, weekly interviews from authors and news of the latest releases, upcoming books and debut writers. After having fallen in love with the genre more than a decade ago, Elle believes that chick lit will never go out of fashion!

Chick Lit Central was formed in 2010 by Melissa Amster , who wanted a place to talk about chick lit novels with other readers. It was first just a group on Facebook, but she decided to make an accompanying blog for posting reviews. (The first author to send a review copy was Sarah Pekkanen with The Opposite of Me.) Soon, inspired by other blogs, it was expanded to interview authors and host giveaways. Melissa Patafio became a partner for the blog during the summer of 2010. They’ve had the opportunity to interview many wonderful authors and read some fantastic novels, as a result. Having a forum to discuss chick lit novels with readers all over the world has also been enjoyable for them. The blog has grown since 2011, to include review associates (Gail Allison, Becky Gulc, Jami Deise, Kathryn Hamilton and Miriam Plotinsky), a senior promotional associate (Tracey Meyers) and an additional partner, Amy Bromberg. They even have Cindy Roesel as their author liaison. Chick Lit Central always welcomes guest posts, book reviews, stories about meeting authors, etc. They’re not just a blog and Facebook group, they’re a community! Contact them by e-mail and visit them on Facebook and Twitter.
