With thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting.

Top 10 Books I was forced to read:

For School:


1. Read in 6th grade, the quote for the title of this blog comes from here. A favorite.

2. A love for gothic fiction is born. Good thing, I had to present for 20 minutes about it.

3. It's popular for a reason.

4. This is a beautiful collection of short stories. I was lucky enough to meet Jhumpa Lahiri as well.

5. It may not be the book I loved as much as how in depth the course was regarding the "Lost Generation"

6. Every time I read an essay that claims it's boring garbage, I have a little rage blackout. 

7. This book surprised me, it wasn't what I expected based on movies, TV, etc.

By other people:

8. My older sister bought me the third Harry Potter instead of the first by accident, but she wanted me to read them even though I felt I was "too old". I loved it, went out and bought the first two, and eagerly awaited the fourth, went to midnight movie premieres in a Quidditch jersey, etc. What a monster she created. 

9. My other sister had me read this. I was reluctant due to the cover, it looks like poster for a Mystery Science Theater 3000 film.  

10. This was chosen for a short-lived book club and it's amazing, I highly recommend it.

I just read A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN this summer. What a fantastic book! I never would have imagined it in a sixth grade classroom. That seems young, but it shows that sixth graders are fully capable of this kind of reading! I liked your list a lot. :)
