We can’t get enough of HBO’s hit show Girls, and the season finale on Sunday night left us hungry for more. Lucky for us, Girls staff writer Lesley Arfin stopped in to give us a little something to tide us over–her top hits for a stellar summer reading list! And if reading these books will make us half as good a writer as Lesley–who also wrote the fabulous Dear Diary, based on her articles in Vice Magazine, and who has written for Jezebel.com, Russh magazine, and done commercial work for everything from Xbox to Nike–we figure we’re on good footing!
