Reading is cooler than ever these days, partly thanks to the fast rise of #bookstagram, and partly thanks to some of our favorite characters, like Hermione Granger, Belle, and Elle Woods. Even better, the actresses who brought them to life have started their own book clubs, championing their love of reading.
The celebrity book club trend is growing, and sometimes it's hard to keep up. While some are officially branded and have their own Instagram pages and/or websites, like Oprah's Book Club (which requires no introduction) and Reese Witherspoon's Book Club x Hello Sunshine, others are yearly roundups and lists by figures like Barack Obama and Bill Gates, and (more often) others are casual suggestions by celebrities on their personal pages. These recommendations range from quick posts about a book they love, like Brie Larson does, to in-depth discussions offered by Emma Watson. While it's mostly women participating in this trend, it's nice to see some men in the mix, with the entry of NFL quarterback Andrew Luck, and Jimmy Fallon's Summer book club.
Here's a roundup of these famous readers and some of their recent picks to add to that never-ending to-read list we all seem to have.
