~~ Required Reading: Books I Liked ~~
This week for Top Ten Tuesday, the topic is a Back to School Freebie. To keep things simple, I'm just going to list the few books I'd spoken to my BFF about recently when we had a conversation about literary classics. As we all know, high school English classes will typically force a bunch of classic literature down our throats, and whether we enjoy those books or not, we are required to read and finish, then analyze them.
I was never a great fan of the classics, to be honest. And as I told my best friend: There are only a few select books that I actually found I liked back in high school when it came to classic literature. When college came around, there were even fewer books on our required reading list that I liked.
I suppose I'm lucky to even have any books on this list. I know that Into the Wild is probably not considered a classic read, but it was an assigned reading when I was in college. The four listed above were assigned reading in high school that I liked. Dracula was a book I read in middle school, chosen from a large list of recommended reading, for a book report.
