I think it’s a bit of everything you said! To me reading chick lit is almost (almost!) as satisfying as sitting around with girl friends and discussing the above. I’m a girly girl, and I like to hear and share stories of career, men, friendships & family in real life and in fiction.
There has to be more than that to the story for me though. I like to see change in a person, improvement, strength and overcoming struggles. Chick lit is really good at that, whereas in real life some of the people I meet are not so hot at learning from their mistakes and making improvements in their lives! I always feel inspired and empowered at the end of a good story.
