Emily Liebert

Emily Liebert is an award-​winning author, New York Times bestselling editor, and TV personality. Her books Facebook Fairytales and You Knew Me When are available across the globe. Liebert is a graduate of Smith College and lives in Connecticut with her husband and their two sons.

Her new novel is When We Fall.

Recently I asked Liebert about what she was reading. Her reply:
Since I’m currently working on three books in different stages and have two young kids, it’s not always easy to find time to read for pleasure! That said, I try to sneak it in whenever I can. Right now, I have three books on my nightstand:

All Fall Down by Jennifer Weiner. I’ve been a longtime fan of Jennifer’s. I think she’s a masterful storyteller with a vivid imagination. She creates true-to-life characters who are flawed, yet you still end up rooting for them. I’ve never read a novel of hers I didn’t like, so I’m really looking forward to digging in.

The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarity. I’ve also read all of Liane’s book. She has such a unique voice and style, which are refreshing. And, from what I understand, this was a real breakout novel for her. Unfortunately, because of all the hype, I already know the “secret,” but I don’t care! After this one, I’ll read her most recent book, Big Little Lies.

Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. This is, hands down, my favorite book of all time and—right now—I’m reading it chapter-by-chapter with my four and five-year-old sons. It’s one of the greatest love stories—though not a romantic one—between Charlotte and Wilbur. I cry every single time.
