Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

A: It’s so strange when I look back on what was required reading for me. For some reason I seemed to have missed SO MANY that normally everyone was required to read. Either I have completely blocked them from memory or my school system sucked. Regardless! There are a few from my early school days, high school, and college that I truly enjoyed.

Dystopian 101. This is one of my all-time favorites from my early school days. There are some books that stick with me and this is definitely one of them.

We did a huge project off of this from what I remember in my sophomore year of high school. Can’t remember what on earth I wrote my paper on but I just remember loving this book. I ended up having to read it again for my Ancient and Medieval Cultures class in college.

Another book I had to read for my Ancient and Medieval Cultures class. Don’t ask me why but I loved this short story. I always sold my textbooks immediately after finishing classes (because I was a broke-ass college student and kind of liked to eat) but I still have my copy of this on my bookshelf.

What were some of your favorite reads that were required for school? Leave your link and I’ll come visit! 🙂

  1. I'm so jealous about George Orwell's book. I would've LOVED that as a required reading.
