If you like The Opposite of Me

If you like commercial women’s fiction with heart and humor, have I got some goodies for you to check out!

First, you must read anything and everything by Jennifer Weiner. My favorite book is In Her Shoes (which was made into a movie starring Cameron Diaz) but I also adore Little Earthquakes and Jen’s latest book, Fly Away Home.

Emily Giffin is another terrific, topical writer. My favorite of her five books? Something Blue.

Marian Keyes, an Irish writer, is just phenomenal. Start with her first book, Watermelon, and work your way through her hilarious, heartbreaking novels.

Need a laugh? Then don’t miss Jen Lancaster.

Some other books I adore: Pieces of Happily Ever After by Irene Zutell, Seven Year Switch by Claire Cook, The Last Will of Moira Leahy by Therese Walsh, Stay by Allie Larken, and Time of My Life by Allison Winn Scotch. And, of course, the books by current and Graduate Debs!

Happy reading!

  1. Oh, I ADORE all of these writers you mentioned (especially Jennifer Weiner and Emily Giffin).

    My other favorite is Jennifer Crusie. Hysterically funny, especially WELCOME TO TEMPTATION and FAKING IT.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

  2. Tawna, I haven’t gotten into Jennifer Crusie yet but keep meaning to. I hear good thing. I’m going to start with one of the books you recommended.
    Allie – my pleasure! And Emily, take one of the books into the tub with you. Along with a little Joelle-inspired tray of goodies.
