Mommy Lit

Chick lit seems to have evolved into a new subgenre: “mommy lit.” Readers who enjoyed Bridget Jones' escapades a decade ago are now having kids of their own. Apparently in Great Britain, where Bridget Jones’ Diary was first published, women over the age of 30 buy more new fiction than any other demographic group, according to a recent article in The Observer. Here are a few “mommy lit” books you can check out:

Babyville: A Novel by Jane Green.

What Do You Do All Day by Amy Scheibe.

I Don’t Know How She Does It by Allison Pearson.

Amanda Bright@Home by Danielle Crittenden.

Little Earthquakes: A Novel by Jennifer Weiner.

Hey, moms — got any other suggestions? If so, let us know.
