Welcome to the Pinup Book Club, a blog dedicated to reading the books Marilyn Monroe read, and more!

Each month a new book from Marilyn Monroe’s is read (announced the first of each month). As an additional challenge, I will be finding copies of the same editions of each book she had, in order to recreate her library as accurately as possible.

Here is what we have read so far, and the month/year of reading. Click here to see how we know about these books. If you are interested in finding out more about each book, check out Marilyn Monroe’s Bookshelf: An Annotated Bibliography project.

In the future I hope to host other platforms for discussion right here on the blog, but for now all discussions take place directly on Instagram.
