Jennifer Weiner Fan Girl

I’m meeting Jennifer Weiner tonight at her Toronto signing. EEEEK! I’m meeting Jennifer Weiner, the queen of chick lit and women’s contemporary fiction! I’m going to bumble over my words because I have so much to tell her. I’m very confused as to what to thank her for most:  

  • For inspiring me to write.
  • For championing women’s fiction and chick lit.
  • For writing incredible books.
  • For writing one of my favourite books, Good in Bed.
  • How the first-ever review at my book blog, Novel Escapes, was Certain Girls five years ago last Friday.
  • For the writing advice she gave in an interview when Certain Girls released about how quickly pop culture references become dated, and how readers like physical descriptions of characters.
  • For the break up with a (not-so-lovely) boy after we fought when I’d purchased the hard cover copy of Good in Bed when I struggled to pay my rent at the time. It was the best “Book Investment” I ever made as I describe in THIS post.
  • How a book of hers made it to my wedding with “the one.”

Do you think she’ll grant me that much time!? How I wish we could go out for a dinner. I have so much I need to tell her. #fangirl 

One thought on “Jennifer Weiner Fan Girl

  1. I love your wedding story and also about how the incident with buying the book was eye-opening in your previous relationship.
    Certain Girls was great. I read it shortly after I had my younger son (a few years before I had my daughter) and laughed and cried through it. I could relate with being Jewish and having a child (two since my daughter was born) with hearing loss.
    I’ve met Jen at a few book signings. She’s so nice. Get in line last so you have more time to talk afterward. 😉 Have a great time!
