NEW Celebrity Book Club Selections : October 2022


I have the complete list of book club selections for some of the more popular celebrity reading groups located at the Reading List tab at the top of the page. Each of them usually add a new book monthly, so I'm checking in and updating the lists with these newest additions for this month.


Reese Witherspoon Hello Sunshine Book Club


Our Missing Hearts by Celeste Ng

352 pages


This sounds fascinating and I love Ng's writing so this is a must read for me and has already been on my TBR

. From Goodreads: a story of the ways supposedly civilized communities can ignore the most searing injustice. It’s a story about the power—and limitations—of art to create change, the lessons and legacies we pass on to our children, and how any of us can survive a broken world with our hearts intact.






Oprah Book Club - No new selection this month



Good Morning America Book Club



Mad Honey by Jodi Picoult and Jennifer Finney Boylan

464 pages


A woman and her teenage son move to a small town to start over. He falls for the new girl in town - then she's discovered dead and he's being questioned by the police. His mom swears he'd never kill anyone, but remembers his flashes of temper. A story of suspense, romance, and the power of secrets.







Read With Jenna Book Club



The Whalebone Theatre by Joanna Quinn

576 pages


Jenna says she "couldn't believe this is a debut novel. It's epic in scope and I couldn't believe how beautiful the writing was. It says so much about where we find hope and love amid our darkest times."

This is historical fiction about the life of a young girl who becomes a headstrong young woman and eventually becomes a secret agent during WWII.

This is already on my TBR list.






Emma Roberts Book Club (Belletrist)





Motherthing by Ainslie Hogarth

288 pages


from Goodreads: A darkly funny domestic horror novel about a woman who must take drastic measures to save her husband and herself from the vengeful ghost of her mother-in-law.







I couldn't find a new selection for Sarah Jessica Parker or Steph Curry. Some celebrities don't choose something every month and some have their selections on join-and-pay sites like Literati. So until they show up somewhere on the internet for free, I won't be able to share them.


Two of these four picks were already on my radar thanks to my blogger buddies who share upcoming new releases. Now I just have to get on the library wait list.


Happy Reading.












Welcome to Bookshelf Journeys.

It's my goal to provide real reviews of the books I read without totally rehashing every plot. I'll never spoil a story by giving away a plot twist! Hopefully you'll find one or two of interest and will discover a new book or author to add to YOUR TBR list.  Take a moment to explore, read a couple reviews, and let me know what you think.

                            TIPS

For your convenience, I use #hashtags in the reviews and when you click on one, you'll find more books with that theme. Hopefully you'll find it a helpful way to navigate the site and find books you'll enjoy. I've also recently added tags that will show up at the end of each review that serve the same purpose.

The review ratings are based on a 5 star  (1/2 stars sometimes) system with a 3 being an average read for me. I hope you find that helpful. Knowing, of course, that all opinions are just that - my opinion!  Let me know if you agree or disagree - I'd love to hear from you.

If you like what you see and want to keep up with me, subscribe below.  Happy Reading!
