You can never have too many good books. We've already shared our growing list of must-have beach reads and books by boss ladies we love. But of course, we must keep up with what novels, memoirs and nonfiction our favorite stars are soaking up this summer too. Fortunately, many bookworm celebs have their own book clubs with plenty of recommendations to keep our libraries stacked.

From Andrew Luck to Reese Witherspoon, here's a sample of stars' June 2019 book club picks.

Reese Witherspoon

The Cactus by Sarah Heywood is the June 2019 selection from Reese's Book Club x Hello Sunshine. "I found myself laughing out loud at Susan's prickly character as she finds herself in a love triangle, navigating family ties and dealing with 9 months of pregnancy at the age of 45," Reese notes on her book club's site. "Hope y'all love Susan as much as I do!"

I couldn't help but continue to read to figure out where she was and what happened to her." Book Club Babe Emma Roberts recommends this novels as her June pick too.
