I’m a firm believer that if you’re a celebrity, your life isn’t limited to the work you do—you have to take a stance on public policy, current events, and other topical issues. You can’t be neutral. If you have a platform, use it. And I am 100% here for any celebrity who has declared herself to be pro-book—because in the post-2016 election era we live in, reading is more important than ever in keeping us educated and empathetic. So, to all the leading ladies out there who have a celeb book club (or other platform) that you are using to elevate indie reads, diverse authors, owned voices, breakout writers, and more—I applaud you.
This February brings us fresh picks from some of our beloved bookish stars—I hope you’ll add these to your TBR! And if you’re looking for even more book reccos from some of our favorite celeb book clubs, check out this, this, and this!
