When most of us really like a book, we might tell a couple of gal pals. When Reese Witherspoon likes a book, she snaps up the movie rights. In 2012 she launched her production company Pacific Standard, with a mandate to address the dearth of female-centric stories in mainstream entertainment. Since then, she has made a habit of turning great books into great film and TV shows, including the compulsively watchable Big Little Lies. She’s also turned #RWbookclub, a hashtag with over 24,000 followers on Instagram, into one of the most reliable reading lists since Oprah’s picks.
Here are 16 books Reese Witherspoon has already optioned.
