Kim Kardashian West's book club to pay tribute to her late father

We have to admit we were impressed to hear that Kim Kardashian West has set up a book club with her pal Chrissy Teigen and the social media megastar dedicate some of her time to reading a real body of work, rather than her Twitter feed!

Now the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star had admitted that she was inspired by her dad Robert Kardashian to take up reading again and she’ll pay tribute to the late lawyer – who sadly passed away from cancer in 2003 – by reading ‘Embraced by the Light’; a novel that he tried to get her to read when she was in high school.

Kim has had a difficult few months since she robbed in Paris at gunpoint and admitted the ordeal has made her reflect on her priorities.


Writing on her official app, she shared: “When I was in high school, my dad used to get me to read this book but I was always too busy. I was always wanting to hang out with my friends on the weekends, never wanting to read it when I wasn’t in school. He literally tried everything. He said that it’s a fascinating story about a woman who dies during surgery, goes to heaven and remembers her whole experience and came back to life to share all of her experiences.

“I read it again after having kids and after the life experiences that I’ve had more recently and now the book means something different to me.


“It just gives me tools on how to live a better life here and live life to its potential and just be more spiritual and one with God …  I had an amazing conversation with her [author Betty J. Eadie] that just really soothed my soul. I feel so lucky to have had the chance to speak with her.”

We think this is a really sweet tribute to her father, and we hope she enjoys her trip down memory lane.
