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.

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.

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.

Few topics are more intriguing than matters of the heart. Take this week's cover story for instance: a pregnant young wife of a Marine goes missing amid rumors of a military love triangle. When youth, passion and pain collide, it's hard to look away. This week, our staff's fiction choices are about just that – be it doomed romance or lost loved ones, these young protagonists are on an emotional roller coaster.

Popularity isn't everything, but it has its advantages. Take this week's cover girl Jessica Simpson for example. Not just anyone gets to wear a custom Carolina Herrera gown on their wedding day. And in the world of books, popularity is king. This weekend, our staff is reading some fiction and non-fiction books everyone was talking about … and buying.

There's a time to laugh – like while reading this week's cover story on the hilarious Melissa McCarthy – and there's a time for spine-tingling fear.

This weekend our staff is keeping busy with books about the latter. Be it possessed dystopian teens or death-threatening stalkers, this week's reads are all about the dark side.

Here at PEOPLE we're all about telling a good story, be it the behind-the-scenes happenings of Hollywood or what former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is up to these days.

But before there's a good story, there has to be a good storyteller. A few of our staff have their noses buried in fiction and non-fiction books that depict how hilarious, inspiring or terrifying a storyteller can be.

We all love a shiny finished product, but as the old saying goes, there's "a means to an end." For instance, this week's World's Most Beautiful special issue couldn't have come together without a lot of long hours and not-so-glamorous work.

The books our staff are reading this weekend offer an inside look at how everything from dog shows to rock stars are made.
