Emma Watson still has that Hermione Granger persona, and who knew she was such a bookworm! Emma has her own online bookclub called Our Shared Shelf where she shares girl empowering books on the sites goodreads.com and instagram (@oursharedshelf). Being the feminist that she is, she hopes to share books that are funny, inspiring, sad, thought provoking, and empowering. Join her bookclub as they post on instagram Emma's chosen book of the month and share their thoughts on it. You and your photo might even get featured!
"I've been discovering so much that, at times, I've felt like my head was about to explode... I decided to start a Feminist book club, as I want to share what I'm learning and hear your thoughts too. “—Emma Watson
Listed below are the some of the books the club has read and shared their thoughts on.
- Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
- Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl by Carrie Brownstein
- Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn
From the look of things, everyone enjoyed their monthly reads and was happy to be in the book club. It's also a good medium to express their creativity through instagram, and even influence others to read a good and inspiring book.
