Sorry I have been so absent this week. I’m writing a book! (Also school has been unconventionally ridiculous.) I decided to start playing around with a different graphic look. What do you think?
There is something about being forced to read books that makes it not as fun. There have been some books I have read for school that I have immensely enjoyed, but there are a lot more that I haven’t.
I don’t know what it is, but being forced to read makes me not enjoy it (as much). I don’t know if you can relate, but all of the time people will tell me “Well, you read a lot, so you probably like this sort of thing,” when in all honestly, I dislike it more than them for that very reason. Since I read so much, I am pickier with what I read, and when I am forced to read books I don’t want to read, I’m don’t enjoy it as much.
Required Books I have Liked
To Kill a Mockingbird is my absolute favorite book I have ever had to read for school. I LOVE IT!
The Kite Runner is such a great representation of modern day Afghanistan. Even though it was really sad, it was still good.
The Great Gatsby. Need I say more?
It was “Okay”
These are the ones I liked but didn’t love.
The Picture of Dorian Gray
A Tale of Two Cities
These don’t even deserve the time it takes to find pictures.
The Lord of the Flies: No. Just no. Little boys killing each other? Okay.
The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven
Romeo & Juliet
The Scarlet Letter: My teacher originally told my class we would be spending 10 days on this book. Crazy, right? And THEN we read it 3 times and had to spend 8 months on it. (*cough* imbecile teacher alert).
How about you? What books have you enjoyed that you have read for school? Do you feel the same way about required readings?
