I don't think there were many books assigned to me in high school that actually read cover to cover. **GASP** I know. I love to read, I just love to read what I want , not what someone tells me to. I read them enough to know the answers to the quiz, or I looked up the story on the internet. Sometimes I did really well on the quizzes, sometimes not so much. The good thing was that the book quiz was never a big part of my grade and I could always make up for it with other assignments. (sorry mom and dad)
So now, I have decided that I am missing out on some classic books because high school Ang was too busy reading Cosmo, Seventeen Magazine and random other books.
I am currently reading Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol.
After that I plan to read Ender's Game.
The rest of my list is:
The Lord of the Flies
Watership Down (I may not actually read this one - I hated what I did read, but I will give it another chance)
Catch 22 (not assigned in HS but still one I should read)
Catcher in the Rye
The Great Gatsby
To Kill A Mockingbird ( I actually did read this, but I want to read it again)
Of Mice and Men
Slaughter House Five
Romeo and Juliet
A Clockwork Orange
Emma ( this was assigned in college - I didn't write my paper on that book so I didn't read it)
Are there others I should read? Please give suggestions. Did you read the books assigned in high school? What were your favorites?
