Reese’s Book Club Pick for July 2024

Reese Witherspoon’s Book Club (through her company Hello Sunshine) focuses its picks on women’s stories in a variety of genres, from romance to thrillers.

My Review: ★★★☆☆

Set on the coast of Maine, The Cliffs explores themes of family, secrets, ghosts, addiction, and coming home.

As a teenager, Jane discovered an abandoned Victorian house that intrigues her. Twenty years later, Jane, now a Harvard archivist, returns to find the house transformed and the new owner, Genevieve, believing it to be haunted.

Hired to research the house’s history, Jane uncovers a story of lost lovers, artistic awakenings, and the long-term impacts of colonialism, all while battling generational trauma, grief, divorce, and addiction herself. Ultimately, the story makes a statement on the land and its past inhabitants.

I read an early copy. On the plus side, it was incredibly unique and educational—definitely unlike any book I’ve ever read. On the negative side, the plotlines felt too many, and the way they interacted didn’t totally work for me.

I also wanted to empathize with the main character, but it was hard because she was so judgmental of others. Overall, it was a middle-of-the-road read for me.


Reese’s Summer 2024 YA Book Club Pick

This summer, Reese decided to shake things up and pick a YA book club choice for summer reading too: Twelfth Knight by Alexene Farol Follmuth. The author described it as being about “girls and gaming” and said that it offers a remix of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night in the format of a 90s/00s romantic comedy.


The Today Show’s Read With Jenna Book Club Picks for July 2024

The Today Show’s Read with Jenna Bush Hager book club reads books that are offered by Book of the Month. Many of the selections are character-driven and/or diverse.

All the Colors of the Dark hails from a popular fiction writer whose work is well-liked by men and women alike. About this book, Jenna has said, “When you first start, it’s a mystery, and you don’t know what’s going to happen. Then, parts of it reminded me of The Goldfinch and To Kill a Mockingbird.” She also called it fast-paced.

Two kidnapped teens form a deep bond in total darkness while trapped in a basement, never having seen each other’s faces. The boy manages to escape but becomes lost, unable to return to the girl he loves. Primarily, it’s a story of friendship.

I’m expecting this one to be a hit based on all the early reviews I’m hearing.


Good Morning America Book Club Pick for July 2024

The GMA book club reads books that are topical and offer a lot of issues to discuss.

In The Love of My Afterlife, Delphie, who just died by choking on a microwaveable burger, finds herself in the afterlife waiting room, where she meets the most attractive man she has ever seen. However, before they can get to know each other, he is whisked back to earth due to a mistake.

Delphie is then allowed to return to earth and find him within ten days. Determined to find her potential soulmate in a bustling city, she must trust her instincts, seek help, and discover the magic in both her new life and the one she left behind.


Oprah’s Current Book Club Selection

Oprah Winfrey’s book club dates back to the 1990s and is known for reading both classics and very literary works with an emphasis on Black stories.

(Note: Oprah tends to announce her picks sporadically and not on any particular schedule.)

Familiaris follows the acclaimed bestseller The Story of Edgar Sawtelle.

In spring 1919, John Sawtelle, his new wife Mary, their two close friends, and three dogs embark on a journey to Wisconsin’s north

woods, seeking a new life filled with purpose and adventure. However, their destination is more mysterious and dangerous than expected, requiring their resourcefulness and the help of new friends, both human and otherworldly, to achieve their dreams.
