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?
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! :pReplyDelete
You're a good girl to add some classics... I'd have to read some first to see if there are any I'd like to add!! lolReplyDelete

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.ReplyDelete
Not a fan of those particular classics, but rock on with your contemporary choices. YEAH!ReplyDelete

This is a great reading list for school. There is some fun, some education, some classics.ReplyDelete
I've read and enjoyed all of your choices.ReplyDelete
Here's my FF: http://thehottieharem.blogspot.com/2013/08/feature-follow-1.html
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.ReplyDelete
Nice picks. Thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
Jaclyn your obviously a lover of classics :) I do love your choice of The Perks of Being a Wallflower :DReplyDelete
My Friday Hop
Great choices! I have yet to read Chobosky (saw the movie lol) but everything else I would enjoy seeing in a classroom.ReplyDelete
I love your list, besides P&P, lol I haven't read it yet, and after this week I can see it is haunting me! I guess I need to suck it up and read it!ReplyDelete

Oh my gosh...can I just say that you've listed a sampling of some of my very favorite books?!? Yeah, you did! ;) Great selection, Jaclyn...well in my opinion anyway. I'd definitely be signing up for your class! LOL Happy Friday!ReplyDelete
Nice list! I only had to read the first page of The Scarlet Letter for class and I've never read Jane Eyre but I like the rest!ReplyDelete
