Scarlett Johansson’s 5 Favorite Books

Hollywood actress Scarlett Johanson has been in some of the biggest movies such as Marvel’s Civil War and The Avengers. But she is also an avid reader that reads in her spare time. Find out what Scarlett Johansson’s 5 favorite books are!

You may have seen Johansson chasing down and fighting a bad guy on the big screen and can’t imagine her sitting down and reading but both of those things are true! The Hollywood actress has read many books and has some classic novels that many people have not read.

Scarlett Johansson’s 5 Favorite Books

  1. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
  2. Middlemarch by George Eliot
  3. Marjorie Morningstar by Herman Wouk
  4. The Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl
  5. Summer Crossing by Truman Capote


This list includes some great novels . The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger is a great coming of age novel that readers either love it or hate it. Personally, I think it is a good read but I haven’t read it in ten years or so. Maybe I should give it a read and see how it holds up after all these years.

Besides the Salinger novel, I haven’t read any other novels on Scarlett Johansson’s list unfortunately. I hope that changes by the end of this year. Middlemarch by George Eliot is a classic and while I have seen it a lot, I have never gotten around to reading it.

Another novel/author I haven’t read much of is Roald Dahl besides The Chocolate Factory. I have seen many people say they like Dahl’s novels and that makes me feel like I am missing out. Which novel should I read first?


Overall, I think this a great list because it contains a lot of novels that many people have and have not read. It is has a good variety of novels and has helped me add more books to me to-read list. Which novels have you read or would like to read?

    I love Ronald Dahl, and my favorite of his books is ‘James & the Giant Peach.’ I consider it one of the greatest, if not the greatest, children’s book of all time. That is the one you should start with!
