The Fresh Off the Boat and Crazy Rich Asians actress Constance Wu loves all things books, just like we all do! We recently did a deep dive through the actress’s Instagram and found the books she loves enough to share with her followers. Find out what Constance Wu reads now!
Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan and Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
Of course Constance loves the book behind the smash box office hit Crazy Rich Asians but recently in an Instagram caption, Wu spilled that her favorite book of all time is Gilead by Marilynne Robinson.
Sour Heart by Jenny Zhang
Constance calls this one required reading because Jenny Zhang is “correct in all things.” We’d have to agree as this inspiring story collection about the Asian experience has captured hearts everywhere.
Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan
Constance says she read this book before she began filming Crazy Rich Asians, adding that, “I love how beautifully and importantly it expands Ah ma and Nick’s story. How it goes into the history of the family and the people who work for the family and how those pasts shape the characters today. It’s so moving and beautiful.”
Heroine Complex by Sarah Kuhn
Constance loves this novel about Asian-American superheroines who protect San Francisco, claiming that she’s excited to read the book because “Asian American girls RULE!!!”
