Top Ten Tuesday: Required School Reading


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature over at That Artsy Reader Girl.

This week’s topic is a school related freebie since it’s back to school time. I decided to do a list of required school reading, but I’m going to split it in two.

The first five books are ones that will probably be or already have been required reading in school and that I thought were great.

The last five books are what I think should be required reading to keep your sanity in check when school gets stressful and you need a good book to make you feel happy and relaxed.

Hamlet     Macbeth

1. Hamlet by William Shakespeare | 2. Macbeth by William Shakespeare

The Great Gatsby     The Book Thief     Lesia's Dream

3. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald | 4. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak | 5. Lesia’s Dream by Laura Langston

    I know only the first four books on your list. I can see how The Book Thief might be interesting, but I never cared for it. I was just saying, on another site, how I felt Shakespeare’s tragedies were a bit too much for high school kids. But this is keeping in the mind the place I come from. 🙂
