Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic was a back to school freebie. Now I have to be completely honest and tell you that I don’t think I liked any of the required reading I did back in high school. So, my list consists of the top ten books that I didn’t completely hate. I didn’t love them, but I didn’t hate them. The first six are from high school and the last four are from elementary/middle school.
The Crucible by Arthur Miller
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allen Poe
Walden by Henry David Thoreau
The Giver by Lois Lowry
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White
Number the Stars by Lois Lowry
I have another confession to make. The books I read in elementary/middle school I actually did enjoy, so I don’t know if it was just the books that my high school chose or what.
Did you enjoy any of these while in school? Let me know in the comments.
