All of us are familiar with Hermione Granger’s love for reading but did you know that Emma Watson too shares her love for books with the characters she played onscreen like Hermione and Belle.

Emma Watson as Belle

Apart from being an amazing actress Emma is also a spokesperson for gender equality. The British actor is an avid reader and has launched an online feminist book club, Our Shared Shelf, to promote female writers from far and wide. Last year Watson even shared her lockdown reading list to get us all reaching for a good read. “My completely unmissable essentials from quarantine reading – thank you @glennondoyle, Robin Wall Kimmerer, @amateuradam and @c.rileysnorton. Thank you, thank you, thank you,” she posted on Instagram.

Let’s take a look on books she recommended for quarantine reading.

Untamed by Glennon Doyle

Untamed is Glennon Doyle’s third book and was published in April 2020. The book very beautifully captures what it means to be a woman today’s world. It has already gained a lot of praise as it explores what it means to live a life that doesn’t comply with society’s expectations. Part memoir, it expresses what it really means to embrace your untamed self.
