Lana Condor is here to show us her small but growing library (as Condor says, it's becoming a woman!) 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.

The actress' actual bookshelf has been in the family for years, and Condor keeps her mom's childhood tea set on top of it. Naturally, she has all three To All the Boys (opens in new tab) books in her library, but the majority of her books are thrillers. Natalie D. Richards's Five Total Strangers (opens in new tab) is a favorite, along with Harlan Coben's The Boy From the Woods (opens in new tab) and Promise Me (opens in new tab), E.G. Scott's In Case of Emergency (opens in new tab), Anthony Horowitz's Moonflower Murders (opens in new tab)Taylor Adams's No Exit (opens in new tab), and Elizabeth Haynes's The Murder of Harriet Monckton (opens in new tab). She also has Schmidt's The Douche Journals (opens in new tab) (a gift from her To All the Boys co-star Madeleine Arthur!), Thich Nhat Hanh's How to Love  (opens in new tab)(she often keeps this with her while traveling), Sarah Knight's Calm the F*ck Down (opens in new tab), F.C. Yee's The Rise of Kyoshi (opens in new tab)The Deadly Class (opens in new tab) graphic novels, and a book written by her father, Bob Condor: The Good Mood Diet (opens in new tab).

Condor also has a collection of anti-racist books, including Robin DiAngelo's White Fragility (opens in new tab) and Reni Eddo-Lodge's Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race (opens in new tab). "These books have taught me a lot and shared a lot of incredible perspective," she says. And—wait for it—her bookshelf also holds a special scrapbook (!!), which documents her time on set of To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, that her makeup artist gave to her as a wrap giftIt's one of Condor's most prized possessions!
