Every year there are a huge number of book clubs launching all over the world. Some are led by big celebrities, while others are tied to magazines, non-fiction and online clubs. Here are our pick of the top seven clubs, as well as some honourable mentions.

Richard and Judy’s book club

Richard and Judy are two of the best-loved TV presenters in the UK, and their book club has been around for decades.

Fans know they have a winner in their hand when they step into WH Smith and find the crucial stamp of Richard and Judy’s approval, and it has become a shorthand for a good read.

This season they have six books on the go, and getting involved is as easy as buying the book, then visiting their website to share your thoughts, and find out theirs.

Our Shared Shelf

Emma Watson, known to many as Hermione Granger in , began a trend of leaving books around the tube, subway and other public spaces.

It continued and became a huge book club, however, at the beginning of 2020 Watson announced their goodreads board would remain open but “unmoderated,” meaning users can now share their own books and reviews.

However, Watson makes sporadic recommendations through Instagram, using the hashtag #oursharedshelf, so fans can still get involved by keeping their eyes peeled on her Instagram page.
