Check Out ALL Of Reese Witherspoon’s Book Recommendations

In case you haven’t noticed, Reese Witherspoon’s book recommendations are kind of a big deal these days. The actress started posting about her reads on Instagram several years ago and has now turned her love of reading into a full-fledged business. In addition to launching Reese’s Book Club (which has its own social media account and, yes, its own yellow stamp of approval on book covers), Witherspoon has also founded her own media and production company, Hello Sunshine, which has had big success adapting novels into noteworthy film and TV projects (hello, Big Little Lies!).

Whether you’re a longtime fan of the star or just a fellow bookworm, you may be interested in checking out some of Witherspoon’s suggestions. When it comes to picking a great read, she’s proven to have great taste—particularly when it comes to spotlighting works written by women.

Her book club picks, as well as her past recommendations on Instagram and in interviews, range widely in genre and style, from insightful memoirs to just-released thrillers. So every reader has a great chance of finding a title that suits their preferences.
