Second, 76 percent of the negative feedback given to women included some kind of personality c... Read more of this blog post »

“Cram your head with characters and stories. Abuse your library privileges. Never stop looking at the world, and never stop reading to find out what sense other people have made of it. If people give you a hard time and tell you to get your nose out of a book, tell them you're working. Tell them it's research. Tell them to pipe down and leave you alone.”
Jennifer Weiner

“I've learned a lot this year.. I learned that things don't always turn our the way you planned, or the way you think they should. And I've learned that there are things that go wrong that don't always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before. I've learned that some broken things stay broken, and I've learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you.”
Jennifer Weiner, Good in Bed

“Divorce isn't such a tragedy. A tragedy's staying in an unhappy marriage, teaching your children the wrong things about love. Nobody ever died of divorce.”
Jennifer Weiner, Fly Away Home

Proud Book Nerd Thank you for the add! :-) I have only read a few of your books so far, but have loved each of them! You have quickly become one of my favorite authors!


Andrea Just thought that I would drop you a line. I hope you read here. Certain Girls was a great book and I don't know how you are feeling about sequals, but Cannie is such a relatable character and I hope to hear about her again.


Melissa Your books are wonderful, Jennifer! I'm so pleased to find you on this site! I hope you continue to update your reading list because I'm very interested in what else you're reading. You know -- between now and your next publishment : )


Maggie Thanks for the add! Love your books, your style, your humor and wit, and I realize I sound like a stalking schmuck so I'll stop. Love your stuff though. : ) Cheers!


Stephanie Thanks for adding me Jennifer. I love your books! I read Good In Bed in 2 days and then immediately started reading Certain Girls. I loved both of them. I have all of your books and I think you are a great author!
