Summer is just around the corner, so you know what that means. Yes, our TBR list is ready for a revamp and adding new titles is the ticket. When it’s tough to get a good book recommendation, we turn to the stars (no, not those ones). Among the famous celebs with a book club, Reese Witherspoon is kind of the queen of bookworms, and for good reason. Her May 2023 selection is an absolute page-turner — and it’s available on Amazon for $18.

This month, Witherspoon selected Did You Hear About Kitty Karr? by Crystal Smith Paul, and it sounds like the perfect book to kick off our summer reading. “This book is fascinating. I tore through the pages,” Witherspoon said of Did You Hear About Kitty Karr? in her below Instagram video. “It’s all about this movie star named Kitty Karr, and she had to make all these sacrifices to be successful during the Golden Age of Hollywood. When she passes away, she randomly leaves her fortune to three sisters, and it raises a lot of questions for these women,” the actress and producer explained of the plot.

“One of the sisters, Elise, actually discovers something in Kitty’s journal that turns her entire world upside down.
