I don’t normally buy into celebrity lifestyle trends – Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, Blake Lively’s failed Preserve, etc. – but I have to admit that I was kind of excited to hear about Emma Watson’s new feminist book club, Our Shared Shelf. If you’re at all interested, you can click the link and join yourself over at Goodreads.
Full disclosure, the word ‘feminist’ slightly throws me off. Like, are they going to be only reading highly pro-girl power books? That’s not to say that I’m against those books. I’m not. But I don’t want to only read those kind of books.
In any case, I joined the book club and I’m kind of excited to see what it’s all about. I really admire Emma Watson. Not just because I’m a huge Harry Potter nerd (because I am), but for everything she’s been doing with her #HeForShe campaign and her work with the UN. Finally, a young starlet, worth looking up to. It was touch and go there for a while with the Paris Hilton’s and Nicole Ritchie’s and Kim Kardashians.. (sigh) but I digress.
I’ll let you know how things turn out, or you can find out for yourself! 😉
