jenna bush hager reads

Jenna Bush Hager is a woman of many talents but what we love most about her is her love of books. From picking a book every month for her book club (#ReadWithJenna) to posting about some of her favorite new reads on her Instagram, she’s a woman with excellent taste in books. This is what Jenna Bush Hager reads.

All Adults Here by Emma Straub

As we shelter at home and reignite our love of reading, @Jennabhager has this to say about May’s pick. ““It’s bright and colorful and you can escape into it. We can read it from the comforts of our own home and feel good.” 

Valentine by Elizabeth Wetmore

“I discovered Valentine when the owners of @bluewillowbooks in Houston, Texas recommended it to me. The owner, Valerie Koeher knows my taste in books and my heritage growing up in West Texas—this fierce debut novel combines both perfectly . In a time when we all need an escape, fall into the lives of Corrnine and Debra Ann and Mary Rose and Glory. Valentine is a beautiful story of justice and redemption, grace and strength.”


Writers & Lovers by Lily King

“To celebrate an entire year of #ReadWithJenna, I am so excited to share with you all that March’s pick is “Writers and Lovers” by Lily King. This coming-of-age story grapples with themes of identity, grief, ambition and love. I hope you will read with us and fall in love with Lily King’s, Casey Peabody, just like I did!”


The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Daré

“I’m in LOVE with February’s #ReadWithJenna book: “The Girl With The Louding Voice,” by Abi Daré! It is the fictional story of a Nigerian girl named Adunni who dreams of getting an education despite challenging circumstances. I fell in love with Adunni—her hope, humor and grace. And in the month of love — this is a love story about one young girl whose resilience and grit drive her until her voice is heard, loud and clear.”


Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano

“If you want to read more this year, and who doesn’t: read with us #readwithjenna! Dear Edward is the perfect book to start the year. It is a book about a remarkable boy named Edward who is the only survivor of a plane crash. It is a book about resilience and grace and about building a new life. As J. Courtney Sullivan said: “It will break your heart and put it back together again.””


Late Migrations: A Natural History of Love and Loss by Margaret Renkl

December’s #ReadWithJenna pick is Late Migrations: A Natural History of Love and Loss by @margaret.renkl This book tells the story of Renkl’s personal life through little vignettes about her family and the happiness and sadness that comes with love and loss. With Renkl’s love for nature shown in this book, Late Migrations made me feel like I was taking a walk through nature myself. While it is a fast read, I read it slowly and enjoyed every word


Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson

“Nothing to See Here by Kevin Wilson is a beautiful book about what lights us up. It is a book about love and family and acceptance and I missed it as soon as I finished reading it. Read with us! #readwithjenna


All Adults Here by Emma Straub

“Y’all FEELING good this FRIDAY: LOOK what came in the mail! One of my favorites @emmastraub has a book out this May. And just like the novel ALL ADULTS HERE—and the fab woman who wrote it—the cover is colorful, bright and warm. Needed this sunshine today. Thanks Emma!#readwithjenna


The Dutch House by Ann Patchett

“The Dutch House is a delicious, dark fairy tale that I read compulsively. It is also a beautiful love story about the power of siblings. Plus, who doesn’t adore Ann Patchett? #ReadWithJenna #OctoberPick


The Dearly Beloved by Cara Wall

The Dearly Beloved is a book about faith and doubt. Love and sorrow. It follows two couples whose lives are intertwined as they navigate pain and joy. And it made me think about with whom and where we find comfort when life hurts? Or who we reach for when the goodness in the world makes us want to sing out with joy? I gave this beauty of a book to my family—and loved the conversations that came out of it. Read with me—this gentle, gorgeously written book may be one of favorites ever. #readwithjenna


Patsy by Nicole Dennis-Benn

“We’re closing out the summer with another page-turner. This month we’ll be reading #Patsy by @ndennisbenn and it’s a book that promises to prompt a lot of meaningful conversations. Will you be joining us? Follow along over on @readwithjenna all month long.”
