Book News: Celebrity YA Book Clubs

November 13, 2020
You Should See Me in a Crown by Leah Johnson book cover

Looking for new book recommendations? Or a welcoming, yet socially-distanced, place to chat books? A number of online book clubs have popped up in recent years. Some of them are from favorite YA authors (John Green’s subscription-based Life’s Library Book Club featuring YA and Adult books) or favorite athletes (Andrew Luck’s Book Club). Some of the clubs have come and gone quickly, as celebrities face the challenges of moderating (R.I.P. Emma Watson’s feminist book club Our Shared Shelf).

Actress Reese Witherspoon is the most recent celebrity to dive into the game, launching the YA arm of her monthly Reese’s Book Club in August. Her picks all center on female protagonists, and the books have gained a lot of critical and reader attention so far. Check out her picks from the past four months below.

Reese’s YA Book Club:
