If you're curious about all the newest celebrity book club picks, this blog post contains an updated list each month to serve as a quick and easy resource for you to find them all in one spot. It's your book club central!

If a certain celebrity book club pick is not yet updated, it probably means it hasn't been announced yet! I am usually able to update celebrity book club picks on this website the day they are announced (or before, if I have access to a spoiler).

Below are all the most recent celebrity book club spoilers for the following book clubs:

(Notes: I discuss Literati's celebrity book clubs on this post. I do not currently follow Sarah Jessica Parker's book recommendations, Emma Roberts' Belletrist book club, Emma Watson's Our Shared Shelf, or Goop book club but I am linking them here for your ease of reference if that's what you are looking for.)
