ELLE’s new lit­er­ary ed­i­tor, Marta, says her favourite book is One Hun­dred Years of Soli­tude by Gabriel Gar­cía Márquez: ‘It re­minds me of fall­ing in love with read­ing, of the hard­ships of be­ing a teenager and not hav­ing a clue who you are.’ Start­ing her ca­reer as a re­porter for a news­pa­per in her home town of Barcelona, Marta moved to Lon­don in 2013 to work on the books desk at The Guardian. The ad­vice she would give her 16-year-old self would be ‘other peo­ple don’t get to de­cide your value, so stop try­ing to please them’. Read Marta’s book picks on page 120.
