    "Something so sad, but something that gives hope. Sad hope. I think for a woman in Emma Watson's stature, sad hope is one of the few things that she can give to those who follow her. Thank you for introducing this to us Emma! I will finish it after the week!"

    "Didn't take Emma Watson to read something as deranged as this, but I guess she wanted to see the world from different eyes, and The Catcher in the Rye is one of the books that sop perfectly describes what the world seems like for a kid with less guidance than most. "

    "The best book that Emma Watson has recommended is I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. It tells the story of seventeen-year-old Cassandra and her family, who live in poverty in a ramshackle old English castle. Here she strives, over six turbulent months, to hone her writing skills. She fills three notebooks with sharply funny yet poignant entries. Her journals candidly chronicle the great changes that take place within the castle's walls, and her own first descent into love. "

    "I think Emma identifies with this book on some levels, for her to read it and recommend it to others. Such a great story told. There is something about ideals and reality that blurs the mind of the many, especially for celebrities like Emma, so I guess she enjoyed reading about how someone felt through it in a different time.

    "This one came highly recommended but I gotta say, I just wasn't that into it. I guess it's romantic or whatever, so if you like romance novels it's okay, but it's not the best. The next book by Green, Turtles all the way Down, is much better."
