Today’s Musing Mondays: What books did you read while in school? Were there any that you particular liked, or even hated? Did any become lifelong favourites?
This sort of goes off of yesterday’s Flashback Challenge post… how convenient! I’ve read a lot of books for school, probably the same number that I’ve “read” for school, but I really only remember the ones I loved and the ones I absolutely hated. You know how that goes.
Of the ones I enjoyed, I’d have to put To Kill a Mockingbird, The Outsiders, The Giver, and Bridge to Terabithia at the top of my list. The first one I read in ninth grade, the second and third in eighth, and the last in, like, third. Not sure about that one. They are all wonderful in different ways, but I would recommend them to anyone.
On my hated list, which includes books that I’ve “read” (due to the aforementioned hate), I would put up Return of the Native as a strong first, then A Tale of Two Cities and The Power of Myth, all read or “read” at some point during high school. The last one’s not even a proper book, for crying out loud!
