Reese Witherspoon Talks New Book

Reese Witherspoon recently hopped on the celebrity book club bandwagon, but that isn’t the only thing she has going on the literary front—she released her very own coffee table book today.

Titled Whiskey in a Teacup, it outlines how growing up in the South, alongside strong and independent women, has shaped her life, and better yet, the tome is filled with Southern recipes, beauty tips (including her fail-proof hot roller technique), home decor trends, and more.

“My grandmother Dorothea always said that it was a combination of beauty and strength that made Southern women ‘whiskey in a teacup,’” Witherspoon wrote of the inspiration behind the title of her text. “We may be delicate and ornamental on the outside, she said, but inside we’re strong and fiery.”

Over the past few months, Witherspoon has been offering her Instagram followers an inside look at the process of creating her first book. For example, back in July, Witherspoon posted a sneak peek of her book’s cover. “WOW! Fresh off the printer! It’s all happening!” her caption read.

Leading up to the release, the Big Little Lies star kicked off her book tour in New York City where she also made time for an appearance on Good Morning America, and to further celebrate, she’s been posting photos all week.

“I hope you’ll see how easy it is for you to bring a little bit of the South to your home, no matter where you live,” Witherspoon shared, revealing what she hopes readers get from her writing. “After all, there’s a Southern side to every place in the world, right?”
