Looking for a Book Club? Look no further

I’ve been a fan of Reese Witherspoon -who isn’t?- back to the Legally Blonde days. I recently LOVED her in Big Little Lies (Seriously considering a rewatch). But one of my favorite things about Reese Witherspoon is how much she loves to read! Fun fact: I picked up Girl on The Train solely because Reese Witherspoon was spotted reading it.

I follow the RW book club on instagram, and saw that their July pick was The Alice Network. The description was so enticing I immediately requested it from the library, and I finally received it on my kindle today!

The votes are in y’all… #TheAliceNetwork won as our next selection! I think you’ll really enjoy this exciting and fast-paced story about a pregnant American socialite who teams up with a female ex-spy and a hot-tempered young soldier in the aftermath of WWII. A story of courage and redemption. Happy reading! – RW

About a month later, I saw that herAugust pick was the Lying Game and was thrilled that I had already ordered it with my Book of the Month selection.

And with these two shaping up to be my next two reads, I realized that I am definitibely a participating member of the RW book club. And by the transitive property, that means Reese and I are best friends. #math.

Since this realization, I started to think about the other online bookclubs I always swore I’d join. So here’s a quick rundown of other online book clubs you can participate in:

  • Reese Witherspoon Book Club (Instagram)
  • Emma Watson’s Feminist Book Club (Goodreads)
  • Emma Robert’s Belletrist Babes (Instagram). While you’re add it, follow Emma herself. She’s the best. (Instagram)
  • Modern Mrs Darcy’s Book Club — This was was so talked about by Top Shelf Text I had to look it up. Modern Mrs. Darcy creates a FLIGHT of books each month. One month I desperately want to clear my TBR and just read them all. This sounds like too much of a commitment for me because I tend to only read 3-4 books a month anyway and I have so many others I want to read, but maybe when my BOTM subscription runs out I’ll give it a try. Have you tried it? Is it worth ditching my TBR? Let me know! (Website)
  • Book of the Month Club – this one isn’t as traditional, but Book of the Month provides discussion boards for you to share your thoughts, and a ton of bookstagrammers are reading the same book, so there’s always a platform for discussion for these great reads! (Interested: Use my discount code!)
  • Hello Book Lover – this is one subscription book I really want to try. You choose from two books on a theme and they send you an adorable book box with theme related trinkets. And as a bonus, they post discussion points on their instagram and during the month that you can reply to. Even if you don’t subscribe, follow their instagram for beautiful book photos! (Instagram)
  • Meetup – if you’re looking for something a little more in person, search meetup for local book clubs. I was blown away by how many were in my area and up my alley when I searched! And sure, I’ve been too shy (and/or busy) to go, but there’s still one I’m “following” along with!

 

And with that I’m off to read my RW Book Club Pics!
