Emma Watson is pretty much the real-life version of her character Belle in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast because this actress is a legitimate bookworm. Currently, Watson is reading The Vagina Monologues as she posted herself engrossed in the play on Instagram. The play by Eve Ensler is Watson’s book club selection for the months of January and February and her Instagram photo shows she’s not slacking on keeping up with her fellow readers.
Last January, as part of her work as a UN Women’s goodwill ambassador, she started the book club Our Shared Shelf on Goodreads. Her feminist book club already has so many books we need to add to our reading lists — and now, she’s inspiring us to read The Vagina Monologues.
In a post for Our Shared Shelf back on December 15th, 2016, Watson wrote why she chose the play for her first selection of the New Year. One of the reasons was the impact Ensler’s play had internationally.
