Season's Readings!

I love the holidays and I love chick lit. Therefore, it was a no brainer for me to say yes when author Libby Mercer asked if I could promote some holiday treats for chick lit lovers this Christmas! I've read (and loved!) a few of these books and a few others are on my wish list. I've linked to my reviews for the books that I've read already. Hopefully they'll persuade you to buy these amazing novels!

Without further ado, here's the info for the lovely holiday promotion!

In the spirit of coming together for the holidays, eight popular Chick Lit authors are "partying it up" with a shared promotion for book lovers! That means eight fun and fizzy e-books, each priced at $3.99 or less, that are packed with plenty of laughs and romance to keep you entertained on those long winter nights! And if you'd like to gift one of these books to a Chick Lit fan, we've got you covered with your choice of paperbacks!

Which books are featured in this festive promo?
