Relaxing Summer Reads

We suggest the books by Jennifer Weiner as great summer reads.  According to her website, Jennifer was born in 1970 on an army base in Louisiana. She grew up in Connecticut and graduated with a degree in English literature from Princeton University in 1991. She worked as a newspaper reporter in central Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Philadelphia until the publication of her first novel in 2001, and has been a full-time fiction writer ever since.

Her books include GOOD IN BED (2001); IN HER SHOES (2002), which was turned into a major motion picture starring Cameron Diaz, Toni Collette and Shirley MacLaine; LITTLE EARTHQUAKES, (2004); GOODNIGHT NOBODY (2005); the short story collection THE GUY NOT TAKEN (2006); CERTAIN GIRLS (2008), the sequel to GOOD IN BED, BEST FRIENDS FOREVER (2009); FLY AWAY HOME (2010), and THEN CAME YOU, which will be published in July, 2011. She is also the co-creator and executive producer of the ABC Family show State of Georgia, premiering June 29th, 2011.

THEN CAME YOU is the tale of four women and a baby and how they form a very modern family.  Her publicity states “With her laugh-out-loud humor, startling tenderness, and spot-on characterizations, Jennifer once again takes readers into the hearts and minds of women everywhere in a timely story that intertwines themes of class and entitlement, surrogacy and donorship, parental rights and the definition of motherhood.”

You will find Jennifer’s books in the adult fiction section.  There are also some titles on compact disc for those that prefer to listen.
