    “Read with Jenna” is a book club from TODAY’s Jenna Bush Hager — and her picks are always page turners. She has a dedicated following on Instagram, where she’ll post videos explaining the book and why she chose it. She also post amazing, inspiring quotes from the authors so that you can really pick up on the vibe of that month’s pick.

    It can be difficult to choose what book to read, especially with the constant flood of new releases from amazing authors. Joining a celebrity book club can be a wonderful way to expose yourself to new reads and dive into a meaningful discussion, especially if you can’t physically attend an actual book club.
