For Oprah.com, The Hunger Games and X-Men star Jennifer Lawrence has revealed her five favorite books!

Her top two and why:

1. “The Other Boleyn Girl”

“Gregory is one of my favorite authors,” says Lawrence. “I’ve always loved history, and she makes it…salacious.”

Narrated by Anne Boleyn’s sister Mary — who managed to keep her head — Gregory’s best-seller takes a new look at the oft-told story of the loves of Henry VIII and the political and religious intrigues and rivalries that roiled not just life in the English court but the whole of Europe.

2. “Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters”
When she was 14, Lawrence traveled to New York City to start her career, so Salinger’s tales of the quintessential New York family — the brilliant, sophisticated, doomed Glasses — have a special place in her heart.

“I’m so drawn to Salinger’s view of society back then, and to his sarcasm. I read “Catcher in the Rye” first, then this one. I don’t think there’s ever been anything like these characters in American literature.”

Rounding out the top five are We Need to Talk About Kevin, Anna Karenina, and The Rum Diary.
