What We're Reading This Weekend: Her Stories

Originally posted 10/09/2014 08:30PM

They say it's a man's world, but to the powerful, talented and hilarious women our staff is reading about this week, "they" don't know what they're talking about. Even pop star Taylor Swift, who covers this week's 40th Anniversary issue – and gorgeously channels 1974's cover girl Mia Farrow – is feeling the world's growing girl power. In that spirit, our staff is poring over real stories of modern-day female history makers.

What We're Reading This Weekend: Celebrity Nonfiction

Originally posted 09/18/2014 09:55PM

When it comes to being a Hollywood insider, no one's better suited for the role than celebrities themselves. With their firsthand tales of high-profile relationships, business dealings and on- and off-screen shenanigans (like those from this week's cover interview with the cast of The Big Bang Theory), stars, and those they keep close, know what really goes down in Tinseltown.

This week, our staff's reading nonfiction on real Hollywood stories, by and about the stars themselves.

What We're Reading This Weekend: Novels on Working Women

Originally posted 09/04/2014 06:45PM

The popular nursery rhyme says, "first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby in a baby carriage," but where does career fall into that mix? For many modern women, work precedes the other life events.

Consider this week's cover star Angelina Jolie, a successful actress prior to falling for Brad Pitt, building their family and then tying the knot much later.

And the late, great Joan Rivers's life's work paved the way for female comedians.

This week our staff is reading fiction about other hard-working gals. And these protagonists are all trying to find that elusive work-life balance.
