Our reviewers come from a variety of countries and backgrounds. Look for their initials behind the reviews.



Leah Eggleston Krygowski (LEK) is an American administrative assistant with a passion for reading, writing and all things literary. In addition to reading and writing reviews and articles for Chicklit Club and its sister sites, Connect and We Heart Writing, she also enjoys yoga, shopping and baking.

Paula Phillips (PP) lives in Tauranga, New Zealand and works as a children's and teens librarian by day and a freelance journalist/book reviewer by night. She is a voracious reader and has an extensive book knowledge on all genres including of course chick lit. You can also catch her at her own book review site,



Leanne Francis (LF) is a part-time family lawyer and is married with three children under eleven. Her favourite escape is reading women's fiction. From Brisbane, Australia, Leanne attends a book club which offers the opportunity to expand her reading repertoire and challenge herself with books she may never have considered reading. When she can be reluctantly dragged away from the written word, she spends time with her family at the local park, bushwalking, swimming and maintaining her old Queenslander home.



Jade Craddock (JC) has been the perennial university student, gaining her PhD in English literature in July 2013. Away from studying, Jade loves reading (obviously) and is a huge sports fan, especially of her beloved Arsenal and would love to write autobiographies of her favourite footballers (Cesc Fabregas if you're listening!). She proofreads for a number of publishers and is always happy to hear from authors or publishers looking for a copy-editor or proofreader. Email Jade


Noemi Proietti (NP) is an Italian living in London. She'd like to work in publishing but for now she is just an intern. She reads every genre, especially women's fiction and crime and thriller novels and she likes doing it while enjoying a good cup of coffee. When she is not reading she can be found taking long walks or at the cinema. You can follow her on Twitter @noemi1987.



Kat Duncan (KD) is a Scottish charity worker, who enjoys country music and reading mostly chick lit and thrillers and especially likes to try new authors. She lives with her partner and two cats Bonnie & Clyde and is hoping to study psychology in the future.



Chelsey Krause (CK) is a Canadian nurse and aspiring author. She lives with her husband and two children. She loves thrift shops and musty old books stores, DIY projects, and has a serious Starbucks addiction. Her favourite authors include Paige Toon, Sophie Kinsella and Gemma Burgess. Check out Chelsey's thoughts on reading and writing at:



Lisa Bambrick (LB) works as a writer/editor for the government in Ottawa, Canada. She has always had a profound love for books and devoured the Baby-Sitters Club and the Sweet Valley series growing up. She fell in love with chick-lit when she read her first Sheila O'Flanagan novel, and Cathy Kelly, Marian Keyes, Jennifer Weiner and Emily Giffin have since been added to her list of favorite authors. She is currently working on her first chick-lit novel and also aspires to write a YA series. Follow her on Twitter at @LisaBambrick.



Marta Hajdinjak (MH)
lives in Zagreb, Croatia, with her family. She enjoys many sports activities with her husband and two sons and also likes to read, watch movies and listen to music. Marta works at a travel agency and loves hanging out with people and communicating. She's always in the mood for a good chicklit or thriller ... and enjoys beautiful covers and wonderful human stories and emotions.



Sherri Bryant (SH/SB) lives in Arizona and loves to read to escape the stress of working in law enforcement. Before discovering the chick-lit genre, Sherri's first love was historical romances with a very strong emphasis on kilt wearing Highlanders. In 2004, Sherri started her own book blog, The Bookworm News and Reviews, to share her love of reading with anyone willing to listen. When not reading, Sherri likes to watch movies, play bingo, and spend time with her husband.
