She wrote the novel In Her Shoes which inspired the movie with the same name featuring Cameron Diaz (I will admit, I wasn't a big fan of the movie).
However, a few weeks ago I was scrolling through the free books on Amazon, and I came across Jennifer Weiner's new short story Swim!
I was contacted by someone from Simon & Schuster's Atria Publications, because of a review of mine, and they offered to send a copy of Jennifer Weiner's newest novel The Next Best Thing. I was super excited, because I've always wanted to read something by Jennifer!
Swim is actually a prequel short story to The Next Best Thing, so it was interesting and fun getting to know the main character I'll be learning about more in the next week or two.
What is it about?
Well, Swim is the story of Ruth, who quite her job nine months earlier, after the man she worked with broke her heart. She's been working in coffee shops helping students with their college applications. One day, she gets approached by a man looking to get advice on his writing for his online dating profile.
Like I mentioned above I thought reading Swim was a nice way to get introduced to the main character, and get me sort of ready for reading The Next Best Thing. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more now! :)
I hope everyone is having a great weekend! :)
