Nothing brings us more joy than snuggling up with an addictive book on a cold fall day. So, if you’re looking to add a compelling story to your reading queue, you’ve come to the right place.

Reese Witherspoon just announced the November pick for her highly regarded book club: The Giver of Stars by JoJo Moyes, which tells the story of Alice Wright, a woman who is enlisted to deliver books as part of Eleanor Roosevelt’s traveling library.

The Big Little Lies star, 43, shared a photo of herself wearing floral pajamas by Draper James and wrote, “For years, I’ve been a huge JoJo Moyes fan. Her characters are so compelling and y’all already know how much I love historical fiction!”

Witherspoon went on to provide a brief summary of the plot, adding, “Set in Kentucky during the 1930s, the story follows a small group of women known as the Horseback Librarians of Kentucky. It’s such a great narrative about personal strength and really captures how books bring communities together, especially for these women who are completely bonded by their love of literature.”

Oh, and did we mention Liane Moriarty—the author of Big Little Lies—is a huge fan of The Giver of Stars? “With characters so real they feel like dear friends and a compelling storyline, this is a beautiful, special novel. I loved it and didn’t want it to end!” she said in a review, according to Moyes’s official website.

The novel is currently available for purchase on Amazon. Bibliophiles can also sign up for Audible to get exclusive access to Witherspoon’s book picks. Although there’s a subscription fee of $15 per month, the first 30 days are free.

Welp, there goes our free time.
