Let Emma Watson's Year In Books Inspire Your 2017 Reading List

She's lit.

When you consider the series that made her a household name, it’s not that shocking to note that Emma Watson is quite literary.

This year, the British actress released her 2016 reading list on Goodreads for all of us to enjoy. Over the course of the past 366 days, the former “Harry Potter” star has read her way through at least 39 books, the genres of which range from fiction to nonfiction to memoir to criticism.

If her short films or political advocacy didn’t already make her an icon, then her preferences for feminist literature surely will.

Here’s a sampling of some of the books on Watson’s list:

4. Annie John by Jamaica Kincaid

5. Sex and World Peace by Valerie M. Hudson, Bonnie Ballif-Spanvill, Mary Caprioli, & Chad F. Emmett

6. The Complete Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

10. The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood
