5 Celebrity Book Clubs To Help You Beat Self-Isolation Boredom

Quarantine boredom is real. Bazaar shares a list of bookclubs, curated by your favourite celebrities, that will broaden your mind and keep you occupied while you're stuck at home.

Kaia Gerber

Daughter of legendary ‘90s super model Cindy Crawford, Kaia is doing her part to stay connected and reduce loneliness during these uncertain times.

On a weekly basis, she posts a book on her Instagram stories and the following week she’ll hosts an Instagram live, where the book is discussed in detail with her followers. But one of the best perks for joining her book club? She often hosts writers and special guests, such as Marc Jacobs, during her book club discussions.

Marianna Hewitt

Fashion blogger-turned-entrepreneur Marianna Hewitt is also hosting her own Instagram-based book club. She engages with her audience via the tag #mariannasbookclub and does a round up on a weekly post.

Her idea is to create conversation in the comment section. Her most recent book was Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, which has quickly become an internet sensation amid the pandemic.

Emma Roberts

Emma's book club began as a collaboration with her best friend back in 2019 and quickly amassed a big enough following to have its own Instagram page (@belletrist).
