(Entertainment Weekly) Here's the celebrity book club you're likely to belong to:

Hello Sunshine - Reese Witherspoon
The vibe - Breezy page-turners all but begging for a screen adaptation. Good thing Witherspoon also runs a production company.
The biggest breakout - Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens, a murder-mystery in the works as a film. It's been on the New York Times best-seller list for a staggering 40 weeks.

Oprah's Book Club - Oprah Winfrey
The vibe - Issue-driven. Several of her most recent picks tackle mass incarceration in America.
The biggest breakout - Cheryl Strayed's Wild, which launched the second iteration of Oprah's Book Club, a third is in development with Apple in 2012, before becoming a mega-seller and the basis for a hit movie.

Our Shared Shelf - Emma Watson
The vibe - Unsparingly feminist literary works, but classic The Vagina Monologues, The Handmaid's Tale and newer titles
The biggest breakout - Heart Berries by Terese Marie Mailhot. Not the biggest book on this list, but Watson was instrumental in driving this indie-published memoir about Native American life to best-seller glory.

ALA Book Club Central - Sarah Jessica Parker
The vibe - Big, ambitious books that immerse readers in unique cultures, from the Middle East to Africa to the American heartland.
The biggest breakout Entertainment Weekly's number book of 2017, Exit West by Mohsin Hamid, about a young couple living through a civil war. Already a literary hit, it found a new audience with Parker's endorsement.

Belletrist - Emma Roberts
The vibe - Roberts has now recommended over 100 books, so it's pretty broad. But Roberts keeps her picks smart and cool most Brooklyn of the pack.
The biggest breakout - Ariel Levy's memoir about the aftermath of her miscarriage, The Rules Do Not Apply, which Roberts called "one of my favorite books" ever.
