Kristen Stewart Names Her Favorite Books and Celeb Friends

Kristen Stewart

"East of Eden", "The Stranger", and "Hot Water Music" are some of Kristen Stewart's favorite books.

"Twilight" leading lady Kristen Stewart has a question-and-answer session with BlackBook magazine, during which she talks about her favorite books, friends, and some other personal issues. Admitting she is into classic literature, she names "East of Eden" by Nobel Prize winner John Steinbeck as one of her favorite books.

"It covers fundamental ideas of good and evil," she tells the publication about the set. "Other favorite writers ... oh, it's so hard when you can only pick a couple of writers. It always seems like you are trying so hard to look like an intellectual."

She continues stating, "I love Camus. The Stranger is one of my favorite books. Kurt Vonnegut. I just read Hot Water Music, which is a collection of short stories by Charles Bukowski. I don't normally like his work because it's usually rambling and drunk, but these stories were so good."

Switching into a more personal matter, which is about having friends, Kristen notes she realizes the importance of being with someone who understands her. "If you don't do this, then you don't get it," she says in a statement.

Talking about her closest friends, Kristen reveals to BlackBook magazine, "My friends are actors. My best friend is Nikki Reed, who is also in Twilight. And my boyfriend, Michael Angarano, is also an actor. I never thought I would date an actor, but he's my best friend. I've known him since I was 13 years old. I live in the Valley. I'm sort of a typical Valley Girl. We just sit around and play guitar and watch movies and hang out."
