Ten Things She Likes to Read

I’ve been a fan of Julia Stiles since her badass, take-no-prisoners turn as Kat in 1999’s 10 Things I Hate About You, the movie homage to Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew, costarring an adorable, long-haired Heath Ledger.

Since then, she’s pulled off all manner of vulnerable, tough, funny, poignant and witty characters that give girls a good name. And she’s got some great classic and contemporary picks for favorite books, which she shared with us for Summer Reading.
