Roberts (above) says she was hooked on to Stephen King’s novel The Shin­ing while she was work­ing in the TV se­ries, Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story.

The 26-year-old, who’s a self-con­fessed book lover, says she prepares for ev­ery char­ac­ter she por­trays af­ter a thor­ough book read­ing, re­ported Elle.com.

“When I was do­ing Amer­i­can Hor­ror Story, I was read­ing a lot of Stephen King and

be­came ob­sessed with The Shin­ing. And then I also read Shut­ter Is­land. Books are a fun way to get your­self in a cer­tain mind­set or mood as an actress,” says Roberts. “I al­ways pick out a book­shelf for ev­ery char­ac­ter I play. I get around three or five books to have with me while I’m play­ing a char­ac­ter,” she adds.

The Scream Queens ac­tor and her friend Karah Preiss have started Bel­letrist, a book club any avid reader can sign up for.
