Celebrity book clubs have released their picks for June 2022. 

Reese Witherspoon selected Counterfeit, by Kirstin Chen.

The novel tells the story of Ava, a straight-laced lawyer, wife, and mother who reconnects with her long-lost college roommate ... and is drawn into her counterfeit handbag scheme.

Jenna Bush Hager picked These Impossible Things, by Salma El-Wardany.

The novel follows three friends from childhood to adulthood, as they balance their desires against the expectation to be good Muslim women, and how they find their way back to each other after one fateful night.

Good Morning America chose More Than You'll Ever Know, by Katie Gutierrez.

The novel follows a true-crime writer who stumbles upon the story of a woman who balanced two marriages ... until one husband is arrested for murdering the other ... and the further drama revealed as the writer begins investigating the tale again.

You can read an excerpt of More Than You'll Ever Know in GMA's announcement of its choice.

And on a decidedly different note, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates released a list of five great books for the summer.

He acknowledges that the topics in this mix of fiction and nonfiction aren't exactly light, but said that none of them felt heavy (unless you were thinking literally; one selection is nearly six hundred pages long).
