She’s America’s sweetheart, Reese Witherspoon has always taken the world by storm. From her days as Elle Woods to Big Little Lies, Reese really has brought women empowerment into light. There is something else that she does incredibly well, and that is selecting books for her book club! With 372k followers, Reese is spreading her love of reading.
As someone who studied English Language and Literature, I had always loved getting lost in a good book. Once I graduated, I needed books that would challenge my comprehension skills–but then I had found Reese’s book club. I can tell you one thing, though I have only read three books from her selection, I have loved every single one! Every book pick has varied in genre and topic discussion.
For being a person of celebrity status, one would be surprised and pleased as to how interactive this book club really is. What I really enjoy about this infamous Instagram book club is that before every pick is revealed, Reese will post a video listing facts about the author and then will have her followers guess in the comments below. Also, the authors that are selected complete a Q&A with readers! Having a book club as interactive as this is extremely important. Reese is taking the definition of a book club to a different level; these posts allow the readers to dive in further than just the plot of the book, they have the opportunity to learn how the book was put together and the occurrences that influenced the book too.
I highly recommend for you book worms to follow this book club on Instagram at @reesebookclubxhellosunshine, and I have listed below the books I have read so far from the book club:
The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine
The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo
This is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett
Let me know in the comments below if you’d like individual posts about these books!
Until next time,
