Looking for a good book to read before summer’s over? Do you like to discover new authors and books that surprise you and keep you coming back for more?

You may or may not be familiar with the name Jennifer Weiner. She’s a successful novelist in the same genre as me—chick lit—and she recently did a segment on good summer reads for one of my favorite shows…you guessed it, CBS Sunday Morning. Jennifer recommends some good authors in her genre, but she also gives a variety of choices.

Readers, check it out. Watch the video below:

I would be remiss not to mention that one of my favorite chick-lit novelists is not on this list, and she has a new book out as well. Emily Giffin’s Where We Belong is also a hot read this summer. I’m halfway through the book now, and I am enjoying it.

Emily just wrapped up a book tour that took her from one end of the country to the other, and many of those pictures can be found on her Facebook page. Below is a picture of my friend’s stepdaughter with Emily at a book signing. What can I say, the girl’s got good taste! 🙂
