The actress — who also starred in the adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, of course — announced Monday night that she’s taking on the bookish titular character in the film, which is scheduled to begin production later this year. And the role is perfect — not only does Watson look the part, but she is also a self-professed book lover.
Watson has never been shy about sharing books that have meant a lot to her in interviews — or tweeting out book recommendations.
Here is a list of the books that you might find in Watson’s collection (books that Belle would probably love too!)
|Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira|
|Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman|
|The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón|
|The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro|
|I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith|
|The Constant Princess by Philippa Gregory|
