I love YA chicklit because it's light and flirty and allows me time out of my day to live in the cute happenings of those who fall in love.

I do not need to be entered into the drawing I just wanted to add my two cents. I have the hardcover of this novel and loved it. One of my favorite reads of last year!

I love YA chicklit because it is fun and makes me think that there is good in the world. I think teens like it because they are navigating relationships and romance and it gives them not only an escape but a place to see themselves as normal.

Chicklit is awesome because it's you. It's your sister. It's your best friend. It's the tingles you get in your stomach when that cute guy stares at you for a moment too long. It's about all the stuff that makes life worth it. YA chicklit is awesome because lets face it, teens are so much more interesting than us adults! ;) Thanks for doing this giveaway!

I love chicklit b/c after reading so many ya novels that make me cry and blubber like a baby, I need some light fluffiness in my life.
After a hard day working with a sometimes unappreciative public and my screaming kids in the evening, I like curling up in bed with some hot tea/chocolate with the covers up high and some light romantic fluff in my hands.
I like reading teen novels because often they don't take themselves as seriously as adult books.

I like chicklit because it's light-hearted and fun. There's plenty of serious and intense in the world already, and sometimes it's nice to just lose yourself in a story you can relate to without the heavy!

I love YA ChickLit because it is usually lighthearted, fun, and a good escape from my life for a little bit. The characters are always great and I like reading about how they fall in love.

I love YA chicklit because it's fun, relatable, and true to life. I love being able to connect with the books I'm reading, and there's nothing better than getting lost in a story. Most chicklit protaganists aren't bad girls--- they're good people whose misadventures make for a really entertaining story. You can sympathize, relate, laugh, cry, and cheer for the MCs of a well-crafted chicklit story every time you read it. Really, with any story, you want to be able to connect with the MC like that, but this is especially true in a genre that's all about loving, living, and overcoming. There's something about it that just hits home--- it's universal, timeless, and reminds you that there is a pot of gold at the end of most rainbows.

Thanks for this awesome giveaway!
