Celebrity book clubs have released their picks for January 2022.
The book tells the story of Smita, an Indian American journalist who reluctantly returns to her native land to cover a story that stirs up her repressed past and conflicting emotions.
The thriller tells the story of Frida, who believes the one role she excels in is that of a mother … but an ominous government agency disagrees and whisks her away to a terrifying reform institution.
The novel follows Molly, a young woman who has embraced her quirks and her life as a hotel maid, but whose world is turned upside down when she discovers a wealthy man — dead — in his room.
You can read an excerpt of The Maid in GMA's announcement of its choice.
(And, yes, oops, we missed December 2021's selections! Witherspoon chose Lucky, by Marissa Stapley; Hager chose Bright Burning Things, by Lisa Harding; and GMA chose Dava Shastri's Last Day, by Kirthana Ramisetti.)
