Shirley Henderson's 6 best books

Shirley Henderson is a Scottish actor who played Jude in Bridget Jones’s Diary, Moaning Myrtle in the Harry Potter film series, and appeared in Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting. She stars in Todd Solondz’s Life During Wartime.

She named her six best books for the Daily Express. One novel on the list:
We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver

What an amazing piece of storytelling. I could not put the book down. Just before the final twist I suddenly knew what the end was going to be and even though I wanted to finish the book, part of me was scared to as I knew it would be so sad.
Read about another novel on Henderson's list.
