Editor’s Note: We love Jennifer Weiner’s smart, sassy voice. Her bestselling novels, from GOOD IN BED to WHO DO YOU LOVE, are poignant and funny, and her New York Times op-eds are spot-on. That’s why we are so excited that she has just released her first nonfiction book, a collection of personal essays called HUNGRY HEART: ADVENTURES IN LIFE, LOVE, AND WRITING. She’s always inspired us, and in this list, she’s shared eight books that inspire her—and we’re thrilled to share them with you.
Here, in her own words, are Jennifer Weiner’s favorite books.
