Emma Watson’s Book List

Harry Potter fan or not, we all know the highly educated, Goodwill Ambassador for Women, Emma Watson, is very much of a book lover.

For all those looking for a book recommendation/s, of course, you would love to know what Ms. Watson would suggest you read!

I compiled all the book recommendations of Emma Watson, from over a few years ago, up to 2016! So you won’t have to go on many different sites that only states a couple on her book list. This is your one stop Emma Watson Book List!

Just yesterday, Emma posted on her twitter account, asking for names she can use for her feminist book club. And just now, she announced the first book that she will launch in her book club, Our Shared Shelf , entitled My Life on the Road by Gloria Steinem.

• The BFG •

By Roald Dahl, is Emma’s favorite book, as she mentioned in Time Magazine, because it takes her back to her childhood.

“I like books that aren’t just lovely but that have memories in themselves. Just like playing a song, picking up a book again that has memories can take you back to another place or another time.”

– Emma Watson

• Le Petit Prince •
By Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

• Just Kids •
Patti Smith’s memoir

“I want to live like Patti. I want to write like Patti. The book was so honest and brave, I love the way she sees the world. I really felt that life was more beautiful after I read it, and I felt more hopeful.”

– Emma Watson on Vogue in 2011

“I have had Patti Smith’s Just Kids on my bedside forever.”

“I had kind of said I would never do a franchise again, so I was desperate to hate it. Unfortunately, I didn’t sleep for about a week because I couldn’t put the bloody thing down. It would be fair to say I became obsessed with the role and the book. Now I am executive producing it. Ha!”

– Emma Watson to Wonderland

Twilight •
Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series was a guilty pleasure. We all have guilty pleasures, and that’s Emma’s when it comes to books.

“When I was growing up, my family, particularly my father, were very stoic. Part of me is very resentful of this British mentality that it’s not good to express feelings of any kind – that it’s not proper or brave.

– Emma Watson on Women’s Weekly

That’s the 15 book recommendations by our favorite witch, Hermione Granger! Oh, I mean.. Emma Watson! (I got confused because they’re both bookworms! Lol)

It’s not in order on which she loves most.

Emma Watson’s favorite book is arguably either The BFG, Le Petit Prince, and Just Kids.

Seeing her interview in Marie Claire magazine, she said her favourite book is Just Kids by

image

Arguably, what she stated in Time magazine, is that her favorite books are The BFG by Roald Dahl and Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Expuréry.

image

For the present time, I believe her interview in Time magazine was more latest than the one she did in Marie Claire. So The BFG and Le Petit Prince must be her present favorites. (Or it might be that she must’ve forgotten Just Kids because, again, maybe, she didn’t read it very recently.) But anyway, it’s not much important, or is it? You decide!
