I am an avid reader. I love a good book. I am one of this people that don’t know what shows are on TV anymore, but chances are I’ve read most of the books that are released. Reese Witherspoon’s book club, Reese’s Book Club or Hello Sunshine, has featured a wide range of captivating reads across various genres, including fiction, non-fiction, memoirs, and debut novels. While preferences vary among readers, here are a few standout picks that I enjoyed from Reese’s Book Club that have garnered widespread acclaim:

  • “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens:
    • This atmospheric novel follows the life of Kya Clark, known as the “Marsh Girl,” who grows up isolated in the marshes of North Carolina. It’s a captivating blend of mystery, romance, and coming-of-age storytelling, with lush prose and a vividly depicted setting. This is one of my favorite books ever. If you saw the movie, but didn’t read the book, I recommend doing that. The movie was good, but left out a lot of details. where the crawdads sing book
  • “Little Fires Everywhere” by Celeste Ng:
    • Set in the idyllic suburb of Shaker Heights, this novel explores themes of motherhood, identity, and privilege through the intertwined lives of two families. It’s a thought-provoking and emotionally resonant story that delves into complex moral dilemmas and the nature of belonging.  I didn’t watch the show they made from this book, but I really enjoyed the book and it is definitely on my list of favorite Reese Books.     Little Fires Everywhere Book

    • “Next Year in Havana” is a novel that transports readers to the vibrant and tumultuous world of 1950s Cuba. Through the eyes of two women separated by decades but connected by family ties, the story unravels the complexities of love, loss, and identity against the backdrop of a nation on the brink of revolution. Rich in historical detail and heartfelt storytelling, it’s a captivating exploration of courage, resilience, and the enduring power of hope. I LOVED this book. I also learned a lot about Cuba’s history that I didn’t know and it was fascinating. There are some other books that tie into to this one also, if you have read it and liked it, I recommend Chanel’s other books. They all have Cuban ties and great characters.  Next Year in Havana book
