From Fear Of Flying to Bridget Jones’ Diary, ten classic 'chick lit' novels all romantic fiction fans should read

Now is the perfect time of year to crawl up with a good book, so crack out your Kindle or pop into your local library and pick up one of these 10 page-turners, which we guarantee will help distract you from the winter blues.
