Stories to spark discussion and laughter, chosen by Reese's Book Club.

She's best known for starring roles in Legally Blonde, Wild and Walk the Line, but did you know Reese is also a bookworm just like you? Reese's Book Club started in 2017 to spread book joy.

'When I started this book club, my big idea was to connect with you all by shining a light on the stories I found meaningful—charming, hilarious, insightful, thrilling and diverse narratives from a female perspective. By sharing stories of other lives and immersing ourselves in other realities, I believe we can create more unity and empathy in the world,' said Reese.

Here we take a look at some of the most popular picks over the years.
