    • This is a DNF for me. I just can't get into the stories nor can I really relate to anything. I have too many other things I want to read so I have to learn to let some books go!

    • Some of these stories were okay, and some were bad. None were great. The best thing about this book is that it exposed me to other authors that I will check out in the future- at least the ones that wrote the okay stories. It was also nice to not be committed to a particular set of characters. A good book to read as a "break" in between heavier books.

    • I am not usually a fan of short stories, but I needed a light read and this book fit the bill. Some funny, some sad, some a tad risque, but all well-written and enjoyable.

    • Another book in the summer of Chick-Lit/Romance!I love short stories - there's just something about being able to convey meaning and entertain in such a short framework that I adore. Plus if you hate a story - it's over quickly (though just as with books, I'm not afraid to ditch even a short story if it's awful). The other aspect I enjoy is that the short stories expose me to writers that I might otherwise ignore. Additionally, there are a few others whom I've found tedious before, but love in t [...]

    • Girls' Night Out is a collection of short stories by popular chick lit authors such as Meg Cabot (The Princess Diaries), Cecelia Ahern (PS, I Love You), and Emily Giffin (Something Borrowed). Each story recounts a mid-twenty to mid-thirty- something female going through some quarter life crisis concerning a man, a job, or a must-have wedding.Whether it's Nina, who quits her steady job and breaks up with her boyfriend of 4 years on the nondescript advice of her manicurist/numerologist in A Thing [...]

    • Some stories were a lot of fun!! Some stories were a little boring. Altogether not a bad collection of stories if you are in the mood for some short stories.

    • Usually I like anthologies. They give me a chance to discover new authors and I almost always like several stories. But with this book, now that I've finished, all I can remember are the bad stories. There were some ok stories, but obviously, nothing good stuck with me at the end. Maybe that's because while it started off okay, it just got more and more depressing by the end. As a result there's not a single author I would track down.At some point there was a story that the author basically told [...]

    • What first attracted me to this collection of short stories was the long list of the bestselling authors in romantic fiction: Candace Bushnell, Meg Cabot, Emily Giffin, Sophie Kinsella as well as new discoveries such as Cecelia Ahern. I loved Ahern's voice but also the manner in which she structured the story, beginning at the end, going through the middle and ending with her beginning. It’s a brilliant piece of short fiction.Aside from the quality of the stories and their writers, Girls’ Ni [...]

    • Really 3.5 stars. This book reads like a tasting menu for female authors (chick-lit) so you can get a sense of their writing styles and maybe discover a new author to follow. Like pretty much every anthology I’ve ever read, it’s hard to comment on it as a whole. Some of the stories were wonderfully written and I would have liked to get more of them, while others were depressing or just so uninteresting that they made want to stop reading altogether. It continually seemed like the stories I w [...]

    • This book is a compilation of short stories, at least 20 stories, written by different authors. No one was paid, the proceeds of this book benefited War Child and No STrings, which are humanitarian organizations/charities, which initiate aid programs for children in need around the world. I didn't buy this book, it was actually given to me by a friend. I didn't read the stories in order, just picking a different story everytime I opened the book. Some stories where clean in content and language, [...]

    • For a while I was going to rate this 4 stars. I am not one for short stories as I always feel like I'm left with a "what happens next" feeling, but I started reading this book at a time when I was having trouble committing to a longer story. These short stories really hit the spot. What made me take away the fourth star? Toward the end, the stories starting taking a negative turn! I would finish one and think "waitWHAT?!?! Did I just read what I think I read?!?!" And yesI did. The last story tho [...]

    • I'm thinking that romance isn't really a great genre for a short story. What I like - the development of a relationship - just doesn't have room to grow in a short story. Those that do try to develop a whole relationship fall flat because so much gets skipped. There were a few stories in this book that I thought were okay. There were several that were dull. And there were quite a few that I just didn't like at all. I kept reading because since each is told by a different author, I wanted to give [...]

    • This book is not something that I would normally pick up, I usually go for nonfiction books about the 1940's. But I could not resist the purple blue cover with the New York city illustrations. I was looking for a quick read something light and fluffy, and I found it. I loved most of the stories, to my suprise the authors that were more well known were big let downs. They seemed to give these short stories an afterthought. I definetly recomend this book to anyone that likes something fast, light, [...]

    • Many of the top chick lit authors are represented in this collection of twenty-five short stories, as well as some newer authors. Meg Cabot’s story about two friends dreading their ten year high school reunion is told in email format, while Irish author Cecelia Ahern tells her story backwards. Emily Giffin’s contribution features a woman who listens to her manicurist’s numerological advice and makes three drastic changes to improve her life. A well-rounded collection of chick lit, with som [...]

    • I read this book looking to add some authors to my to-read list and I'm glad I did! I didn't like all 25 stories but I'd say I really liked about half of them and the other half were a mix of okay/could-have-done-without reads (but each story is only about 10 pages long!) this book is a little dated though- for instance one story takes place in a video rental store (lol) overall I enjoyed this book.

    • The stories were good, but it seemed like quite a few of them had unhappy endings. Not that every story should have a happy ending, but this wasn't nearly as much "fun" asGirls' Night In was, and I guess I was expecting more of the same. Overall, though, I liked the writing of most of the stories and there were at least a couple where even though they didn't have happy endings, I rather enjoyed and appreciated the morals of the stories.

    • This was somewhat disappointing. A lot of the stories were no fun at all, a key criteria for chick lit IMHO. Some seemed to be throwaways by their authors. My favorite was Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez's story (no spoilers), and of course, Marian Keyes who's the per-eminent British chick lit author these days. Clearly MIA was Sophie Kinsella. But I wouldn't totally pan it because there were some cute stories too.

    • Some good, some bad, and some I didn't bother to finish they started off that bad. The first few stories were pretty good, funny, clever and unique, but as the book progressed the stories seemed more and more depressing. At least with a collection of short stories you don't lose anything by dropping one "chapter" and moving to another (like you would in a book).Fans of Sophie Kinsella and Meg Cabot might enjoy, but it was "so-so ok" in my opinion.

    • This book would be better for a young adult versus and adult although content wise perhaps not. The format is a collection of short stories about girls friendships grouped together. And with it's slew of great authors I didn't think it could go wrong. But due to the extreme shortness in story there was no development, etcJust not worth my while in the end.

    • This book had good short stories. I honestly can't say that there was one in there that I did not like. It made me laugh out loud at some of the things that happened. However what I liked the best about the book was that I could personally relate to some stories. When I feel close to a book like this it makes reading it all that much more fun.

    • This is a collection of 21 short stories by American and British women writers. If you're interested in this genre and want to discover new authors, Girls' Night Out provides a starting point. However, many of these stories do not reflect what some of these authors are capable of writing. A few stories are worth reading - try Emily Giffin's (I can see this being made into a movie).

    • This was a fun, quick read! It is composed of several short stories written by female authors so most of the stories are about love, loss, friendship, or great shoes. ;-) Some stories end abruptly and you are left wanting some closure. After reading this anthology, I now have several new authors that I would like to read!

    • I checked this out from the library. It is a collection of short stories in the genre of chick lit. (which is one of my favorite genres) Most of the authors are British and that has been a nice change of pace from the usual NYC setting found in most chick lit.

    • There was one short story in here that I laughed out loud at and a few others that I smiled at but several that I skipped due to way to much foul language plus a few more that I just forced myself through thinking it had to get better. Yes well not so much in my humble opinion.

    • this is a great book with stories from some of the most well known chick-lit writers out there. it's really cool in that if you like a specific story, of an author you've never read before, chances are you'll be able to then go read their books.

    • Started reading this because I was on pain medication, sick and stressed out. I needed something that required very little brain power. Not a fan of the short story. This book is a good sampling of some of the more popular chick-lit authors.

    • This book had its high points, but the constant change in story lines and characters was not my cup of tea. I did like reading stuff by different authors, but I felt compelled to read some of the stories, even if I didn't like how the author wrote.

    • A nice little collection of short stories from various chick-lit authors. My standouts were; Reunion, A Little Bit Broken, Troublemaker, and What I Found. I still enjoyed the others though and think I might have found some new authors to consider in the future.

    • Loved the variety of all the different authors and some excellent stories. Encourages you to follow up with the authors I enjoyed most. Lots of stories also meant a story a night, so that was good too!
