By Julie Delahaye

Kim Kardashian and Chrissy Teigen have joined forces for an exciting new venture – a book club! The stars have caused a stir on social media as they unveiled their latest project, which they are launching with close friend and hairdresser Jen Atkin. The best part? Anyone can join! All you need to do is pick up a copy of their chosen book and read it.

The Keeping up with the Kardashians star took to Twitter to share the news with her fans. "So guys….. @chrissyteigen & @jenatkinhair & I are starting a book club!" she wrote, before adding that she recommended the first book to kick things off. "I'm making them read "Embraced By The Light" as our first book!" she explained.

Chrissy, who is renowned for her humorous posts on social media, quickly posted the tweet on her own Twitter page, simply adding the caption: "JOIN US." When one fan asked how to go about becoming a member, John Legend's wife replied, "I think you just get the book and read, my dude/dudette," while Kim told another fan that "everyone's invited", as well as urging close friend La La Anthony to also get involved.

It comes as no surprise that Embraced By The Light is on the trio's list. Upon its first publication in 1992 it was met with instant success, selling out within two weeks and topping the New York Times Bestseller List. In the memoir, Betty J. Eadie writes about a near-death experience she faced. It's clearly one of Kim's favourite books, as older sister Kourtney revealed that Kim has been raving about it since they were teenagers. "After hearing you talk about it for 15 years I can't believe I've never read it," she wrote in a message on Twitter to her sister. "You have to join our book club we're starting Monday! Go order the book!" replied Kim.
