Amber Tamblyn's six favorite books

Amber Tamblyn is a contributing writer for the Poetry Foundation and the author of three works of poetry, Free Stallion, Bang Ditto, and Dark Sparkler. As an actress, she has been nominated for an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and an Independent Spirit award.

One of her six favorite books, as shared with The Week magazine:
Smilla's Sense of Snow by Peter Hoeg

I love books with unintended heroines. Smilla Jaspersen, a Greenland-born resident of Copenhagen, turns into the most badass homicide detective the world has ever seen after the suspicious death of her 6-year-old neighbor. Her story makes for an incredible ride. I read it once a year, usually during the height of summer.

Smilla's Sense of Snow is one of Elizabeth Hand's six favorite books.
