Sick of feeling guilty about the books you should be reading, but aren’t? Annoyed that the books you read don’t seem to “count” as literature? Join author and journalist Caroline O’Donoghue as she discovers the chick-lit classics her guests were raised on, from schmaltzy romances to family comedies to bodice-ripping dramas. We talk to authors, fans and cultural critics about what makes chick-lit tick, and investigate why it’s so often overlooked.

Already a favourite

This podcast has already become one where I eagerly await each new episode. Women who are unashamed fans of chick lit providing a critical analysis of specific books - all of which in the first few episodes have been personal favourites - this podcast is absolutely my cup of tea.

Loving it!

If you’re going to review some Eva Rice, you’re going to catch my eye (one of the most underrated authors of this century!). Enjoyable podcast about a great area of literature that doesn’t get enough credit!
