In the August 17/24 issue of Entertainment Weekly, Jordin listed some of her latest favorite reads. Her favorites included Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith and the Fifty Shades trilogy which she said, "I read them in five days."

I recently asked Jordin what she is currently reading, she tweeted, "The Dark Monk by Pliver Pötzsch. Second book in The Hangman's Daughter Tales :) ."

Thank you, Jordin!
