If there’s one thing celebrities love, it’s a book club. From some of the more popular celebrity book clubs run by Reese Witherspoon or Oprah Winfrey to other smaller celebrity book clubs run by Dua Lipa, Emma Roberts, Dakota Johnson and more, it seems that every celebrity runs a book club these days. 

Here are my top three favorite celebrity book clubs to check out if you are looking for some new book recommendations: 

Reese’s Book Club:

I am starting off with popular actress and film producer Reese Witherspoon’s book club, as some of my all-time favorite reads have come as a result. When I see the stamp on the front of a book cover that reads, “Reese’s Book Club,” I almost always know it will be good. 

Each month, Reese Witherspoon, the founder of Reese’s Book Club, picks a book that showcases a woman at the forefront of the plot. What I love about Reese’s Book Club is its diversity in genre. From mystery-thrillers, to romances, to beach reads, to historical fiction, there is a book for everyone on the list of Link to Reese’s Book Club picks

Some of my personal favorite books on the list include “Daisy Jones and the Six” by Taylor Jenkins Reid (one of my all-time favorite reads!), “Little Fires Everywhere”  “The Nightingale” by Kristin Hannah and “The Paper Palace.” Again, all of these picks feature women at the center of their stories, and have proved to be incredible reads. I look forward to checking out more books from the list of Reese’s Book Club’s picks!

Oprah’s Book Club:

This book club run by popular television host and producer, Oprah Winfrey, is another well-known celebrity book club. Founded in 1996, Oprah’s Book Club is committed to selecting books that spark conversation and enlightenment as well as connect readers with authors both new and old. 

With a total of 104 books picked for Oprah’s Book Club, this list boasts an impressive variety of titles. There are classics like “A Tale of Two Cities” and “Great Expectations” by Charles Dickens, “Anna Karenina” by Leo Tolstoy, and a variety of works by William Faulkner. There are also incredible memoirs included in this list like Viola Davis’ “Finding Me” and Michelle Obama’s “Becoming.” Some of my personal favorite reads from this list include “American Dirt” by Jeanine Cummins and “The Bluest Eye” by Toni Morrison. Like Reese’s Book Club, there is such a variety of genres on this list that there is a book for almost everyone in Oprah’s Book Club.


One celebrity book club that has taken me pleasantly by surprise is popular singer-songwriter Dua Lipa’s book club called Service95. Though not as well-known as Reese Witherspoon or Oprah Winfrey’s celebrity book clubs, the more I looked into Service95’s book recommendations, the more intrigued I became. 

I immediately recognized a lot of the titles as some of my all-time favorite literary classics like “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” by Ken Kesey. And with authors like Simone de Beauvoir and Joan Didion, both of whom I admire greatly as writers, Service95 boasts just as impressive of a list of book recommendations as Reese’s Book Club and Oprah’s Book Club. Though I have not read as many titles on Service95’s list, I am excited to check them out!

These three celebrity book clubs have such a great variety of books, that they will probably leave you set for a long time if you are searching for your next read. However, there are a few others, like Emma Watson’s Our Shared Shelf, Dakota Johnson’s TeatTime Book Club and Emma Roberts and Karah Preiss’s Belletrist that also have a great variety of book recommendations. 

What is great about all of these celebrity book clubs is their interactive, community-driven nature as well. There is nothing like a book club to bring a community of readers together to share and discuss their favorite books. So if you are stumped as to what you should read next, give one of these celebrity book clubs a try!
