17 Book Recommendations From Emma Watson
It's hard not to love Emma Watson these days, what with her work promoting female education and service as a goodwill ambassador for the UN Women campaign HeForShe. Did you know she's also a major bookworm? Business Insider gives us the scoop on the actress and humanitarian's top 17 book choices!
Actress Emma Watson and Hermione Granger, the Harry Potter character she played for a decade, have at least one thing in common: they both love to read.
After starring in the billion-dollar franchise — which she did from age 11 to 21 — Watson attended Brown University and graduated in 2014 with a bachelor's in English literature.
Since graduating, Watson has continued to promote education — and reading — through her role as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, which she took on in 2014, according to UN.org.
But she hasn't given up acting.
Watson will play the role of another bookworm — this time Belle — in a live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, which is expected to be released in March 2017. She's also currently filming The Circle, a science-fiction thriller in which she stars alongside Tom Hanks, reports Variety.com.
When she's not acting or giving viral speeches on gender equality, the 25-year-old British actress-turned-activist makes time to read. Here are 17 books she has recommended through Twitter or her many interviews over the years.
