UK Chica is the culmination of a lot of effort from a few people. Firstly, the name is a nod to my BFF (OK, I’m not 15, but she is the bomb!). She brilliantly came up with it. I am from the UK and call my girls chica all the time. I love different languages having studied French and German as a kid and Spanish as an adult. So that makes sense – well at least to us!
The idea of this site is because I read a lot and friends know this and they ask for recommendations all the time. Let me also add that I read a lot of different stuff. I may have my daughter add a section on sci fi, or as I call it, weird, as she is very discerning and reads that genre a lot.
You will also find new as well as old books reviewed here. I try to read classics each year, working my way back through Shakespeare or Dickens, for example.
As for me, I grew up in the suburbs of London and studied science in college. Community happened in pubs, and I love a good chin wag, discussion or disagreement between friends, old and new. or as a wise man has said and recently quoted by Jase, “Strangers are just friends we haven’t met yet”.
