I've seen a lot of Jennifer Weiner books up on this site.  Can anyone recommend a good starting point?

I started with Good In Bed, but I've enjoyed all her books. On my shelf right now I have In Her Shoes, I really enjoyed this one. It's about two sisters, it was sad, frustrating and funny - just like real sisters!

I read In Her Shoes, and I loved it.  I didn't even realize this was Jennifer Weiner.  I'll look into Good in Bed.

Thanks,
Kathy

I would also recommend to read Good in Bed.  This book is what made me a Jennifer Wiener fan.

I've enjoyed all of hers so far (I have yet to read "Certain Girls"), however, my favorites are "Good in Bed" and "Little Earthquakes".  I think my least favorite of hers was "In Her Shoes"....and don't even bother seeing the movie!

I've read Good In Bed, loved it! Just got Certain Girls from the library, about to go start it right now actually. I have Little Earthquakes and In Her Shoes ready to read in my TBR pile!

For those of you that liked Good in Bed, Girls Night In (a Red Dress Ink collection of short stories) has a short story by Weiner in the boyfriends point of view. The rest of the short stories in that book are good also so I would recommend reading it if you can :) (I don't have it on my bookshelf anymore but I'm sure there are copies floating around)!

Has anyone read  "the guy not taken"? ( by Jennifer Weiner)  I have this book in my TBR pile and was wondering what everyone thought of it?

I have The Guy Not Taken on audio. I'm on the last disc now and it's all right. I found myself getting VERY frustrated at two of the stories so far. There's one about Cannie from Good in Bed from Bruce's point of view. And I just got Certain Girls so I need to read that one too.
