An Array of Books

There are a lot of great books on this list and some standout ones. Novels like The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman and Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens are ones that I enjoyed a lot. 

No matter what you pick on this list to read, you will be delighted. It is easy to see Witherspoon choose a great book that most of the people will enjoy for her book club and this list is proof of that. A great way to do that is to choose great writers and that seems to be true for the authors selected.

While Oprah’s book club will almost certainly be the most popular book club, Witherspoon’s book club is a close second. So much that Oprah’s website covers the books selected by Witherspoon’s book club. That is an amazing friendly competition between two people that really enjoy reading books!


This list could have gone one for a long time and I was unhappy that I couldn’t find her favorite classic novels. What books stood out to you from Reese Witherspoon’s favorite books list? Let us know in the comments below!
