Emma Watson is a bookworm - and she's always sharing her recommendations.


Actress Emma Watson and Hermione Granger, the "Harry Potter" character she played for a decade, have at least one thing in common: they both love to read.

After starring in the billion-dollar franchise - which she did from age 11 to 21 - Watson attended Brown University and graduated in 2014 with a bachelor's in English literature.

Watson will play the role of another bookworm - this time Belle - in a live action adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast," which is expected to be released in March 2017.
