This week’s Blogger Made of AWESOME is the amazing Becca from I’m Lost in Books! Becca is something else- she’s the owner of the Google Plus Group Book Bloggers Do It Better, she blogs at I’m Lost in Books, and one of the people behind the blog Book Bloggers International. So, Becca has tons of balls up in the air and she is a juggling master!

Becca is also super-cool because she loves The Baby-Sitters Club- so she’s earned a spot in my bookish loving heart! Continue reading

The Babysitter’s Club- chick-lit for little girls?

Chick-lit. The word makes some people sneer. THOSE people are short-sighted, in my opinion. While I may not read all genres of books- I do not make fun of people and their reading choices. To each their own. Personally, I like chick-lit (maybe not every book in the genre of chick-lit, but quite a few). Ok now that I’m off my soapbokx about chick-lit and the people who dislike it- back to my post.

Recently had a new follower- checked her blog out and I LOVE it. So cute and fun. Today on Julie’s Chick Lit blog- there was a guest post by Libby Mercer discussing the fact of “Was The Babysitter’s Club books chick-lit for young girls?” I’ll be honest- I never thought of it like that; but the case could definitely be made that it was. The BSC dealt with many things that chick-lit characters deal with- just in age appropriate ways!

I’m proud to say that I’ve been a chick-lit fan for many, many, many years- ever since my BSC days (which secretly, or I guess not so secretly now since I’m broadcasting this on my blog- I still love the BSC and have fond memories of the books).
