The 'Bachelorette' alum gave us a tour of her book collection in MC's 'Shelf Portrait' series.

Hannah Brown gives Marie Claire a peek at her bookshelf filled with thrillers and self-love books in the latest episode of Shelf Portrait (opens in new tab), our video series in which celebrities, influencers, and famous bookworms show off their personal libraries.

In the video, the Bachelorette alum and author of God Bless This Mess (opens in new tab) shares some of her favorite books, including Miranda Cowley Heller's The Paper Palace (opens in new tab), Gillian Flynn's Sharp Objects (opens in new tab) (she loves thrillers!), Tara Schuster's Buy Yourself the Fucking Lillies (opens in new tab), and Francine Rivers's Redeeming Love (opens in new tab) (her favorite book of all time!). She also loves Lysa TerKeurst's Uninvited (opens in new tab), Glennon Doyle's Untamed (opens in new tab), and Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile's The Road Back to You (opens in new tab).

Brown reveals that she read John and Stasi Eldredge's Captivating (opens in new tab) while on The Bachelorette, which is about unveiling the mystery of a woman's soul. "It helped me realize what I needed as a woman," explains Brown. "And why I am the way I am."
