We love Reese Witherspoon for so many reasons, from her classic films to her constantly adorable presence on social media — and now we get to experience her first book.
Witherspoon’s first book, Whiskey in a Teacup, will be released later this year, in September 2018. In fact, the book is already available for preorder.
“It’s all about Southern living and my Southern heritage, and how that sort of informs pretty much everything I do, from what I eat, to how I decorate, to how I celebrate family traditions, even how I do my hair,” Witherspoon says in an Instagram post promoting the book, the title of which was inspired by her grandmother, Dorothea.
The book will give us an inside peek into the actor’s secrets to holding awesome Southern-style barbecues, her grandma’s fried chicken and sweet tea and even some beauty tips.
“[Dorothea] always said that it was a combination of beauty and strength that made Southern women ‘whiskey in a teacup,'” said Witherspoon “We may be delicate and ornamental on the outside, she said, but inside we’re strong and fiery.”
Reese Witherspoon is a known book lover. In fact, she even runs her own book club, so it’s not all that surprising she would want to write her own book. While we’re not sure how we will possibly wait until September for this book, one thing is for sure — this is going to be one book we won’t be able to put down.
