While we were bingeing through Jennifer Weiner‘s latest hit Mrs. Everything, we were curious to know what books she loves reading. When we asked, her first response was, “Oh, so many good books!” and we can’t disagree. Check out what Jennifer Weiner reads and make sure to grab your copy of Mrs. Everything.

The Dark Tower series by Stephen King

“For world building and sheer readability, I love Stephen King’s Dark Tower series.”

One of Stephen King’s most popular book series, The Dark Tower series brings to life the character of The Gunslinger and his quest to reach the Dark Tower – a place he has both dreams and nightmares about.


Game of Thrones series by George R.R. Martin

Another book Jennifer loves for readability and world building.

George R.R. Martin’s highly-acclaimed series takes readers to the world of Westeros as they follow along on the adventures of powerful houses who are all competing to take hold of the Iron Throne.


Almost Paradise and Shining Through by Susan Isaacs

“For great, relatable heroines I turn to anything Susan Isaacs has written. Especially Almost Paradise and Shining Through.”

Almost Paradise is a story about an unlikely couple who have to stand up for their love despite the adversity and disapproval they come up against. In Shining Through, Linda Voss can’t hide the fact that she’s in love with her boss. But with World War II changing the landscape of the country every day, she’ll come to learn how she can unlock her dreams and finally find the kind of love she deserves.


A Prayer for Owen Meaney by John Irving

“For literary inspiration, I love John Irving’s A Prayer for Owen Meaney.

Eleven-year-old Owen Meaney has just witnessed a horrible accident but believes that all things happen for a reason. Now under the impression that he is God’s instrument, he’ll experience miraculous things like never before.


Crazy Salad and Scribble Scribble: Some Things About Women and Notes on the Media by Nora Ephron

“For writing with bite and wit and voice, I love Nora Ephron’s Crazy Salad and Scribble Scribble.

Nora Ephron’s essay collection covers topics from feminism to beauty products and everything in between. This collection is both hilarious and empowering and it’s no wonder Jennifer loves it.


Metropolitan Life by Fran Lebowitz

Another book Jennifer says provides her great bite, wit and voice.

Metropolitan Life is a witty and charming book that comments on the world as we know it today. With a tremendous sense of self, this book is one readers have loved for decades.
