Kat McNamara Shows Off Her Eclectic Book Collection in 'Shelf Portrait'

Actress Kat McNamara shows Marie Claire her bookshelf in the latest episode of 'Shelf Portrait.' Find out her favorite books and order them for yourself here.

Kat McNamara loves books...so much that when she was 10 years old all she wanted was a portfolio of Shakespeare's work! The Stand actress gives us a tour of her bookshelf in Marie Claire's latest episode of Shelf Portrait (opens in new tab), where celebrities, influencers, and famous bookworms invite us inside their homes to show off their personal libraries.

During the tour, we learn McNamara's favorite books of all time include Arcadia (opens in new tab) by Tom Stoppard and Richard Adams's Watership Down (opens in new tab). She stayed up all night to read The Mortal Instruments series (opens in new tab) the first time she read it, and she thinks The Princess Bride (opens in new tab) is a beautiful read. Of course, she couldn't not show us Making Movies (opens in new tab) by Sidney Lumet, which reminds her why she loves telling stories in the first place and aspires to be a director. Two of her favorite people to get book recommendations from are Alberto Rosende (he has a book club (opens in new tab)!) and Will Tudor. She also dreams of a Whoopi Goldberg tell-all. (Ahem, so do we.)

Find out more about McNamara's passion for books by watching her Shelf Portrait video, above, then order some of her favorite reads for yourself, below.

McNamara is an ambassador for Precision1's "See What Happens" (opens in new tab) campaign.
