This weeks Question:

Back to school. Create a reading list for the imaginary English Lit class you’ll be teaching this semester.


I think it's pretty important to have some classics in English Lit, and it's probably the only reason I ever read and enjoyed some of them. I also really like the idea of having some nice fresh new books added to the mix so my list will be a bit of both.

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling


What would your list be?

  1. I enjoyed The Scarlet Letter when I read it, although it wasn't assigned back to us. I'm not sure though if others would enjoy it as well! But if these are the books you're going to assign, I think your students would love you! :p

  5. I like the mix, half classic and half contemporary! :) I would flunk though, because I WOULD SO cliffs notes Scarlet Letter (read it in High School and cried my way out of AP Lit to avoid tanking because of it!). New follower on Bloglovin, Facebook and Twitter.

  9. I have no idea! I was rarely happy with the assigned books in school, except for The Canterbury Tales and I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. I think I'd have a great time in your class.
