What Hollywood’s reading this June

Beach reading season is officially here and celebrities are gearing up for their posh vacations and getaways with what else?

If you re a chic book geek, you know Younger came back this month. Best. Show. Ever.  Miss Kelsey herself, aka Hilary Duff, has been busy reading this month – Probably to rest up since she recently announced she was pregnant. Hilary first shared that she’s reading I See You by Clare Mackintosh, a creepy thriller about a woman who sees pictures of women in a classified ad that are all linked to violent crimes. One day, she opens the paper and sees a picture of herself, questioning whether or not she is in harm’s way.

The OG and creator of The Real Housewives series chose the book that all celebs are picking as their favorite summer read, The Favorite Sister by Jessica Knoll! Why wouldn’t he?
