"Have y'all read #LUCKIESTGIRLALIVE," Reese wrote on her Instagram about her latest literary endeavor Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll. "My description? It was the most non-stop nail-biting crazy train of a book with one of the most intriguing characters I have read in a long time! (So it makes sense I feel pretty LUCKY that @pacificstandardfilms is going to produce it!!) #BookClub #StayTuned #LuckiestGirlAlive."

Apparently stories with female heroines are popular this season as Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza's book The Knockoff has caught the eye of fashion icon Zac Posen and has been said that it "makes The Devil Wears Prada look like My Little Pony ."

Speaking of the Devil Wears Prada, star of the film adaptation Emily Blunt has taken her love of reading to a whole new level this year. Along with her sister Felicity, the two have teamed up to help promote a novel initiative to get people talking about their favorite books by females ahead of this year's Bailey's Women's Prize for Fiction. While Emily’s top pick for the #ThisBookClub campaign is A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan, "bookworm" Felicity is pushing for Kate Atkinson's Life After Life. When it comes to humor, the siblings are on the same page.
