Top Five Favorite Required Reading Books
It’s Top Ten Tuesday again! It’s a weekly bookish list hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl! This week’s topic is:
Favorite Required Reading Books
This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, was a freebie for anything back to school related. I’ve decided to share share my favorite books that I’ve been required to read for school, because even though there’s been quite a few books I didn’t love, over the years, I’ve also read quite a few books that I actually did end up loving! Also, because school actually started back up this week for me, I only had time for a top 5 today, because I’m still getting into the swing of things.
Alright, let’s get started:
Anne of Green Gables
Many of you probably know about my love for all things Anne of Green Gables, but you may not be aware that the first time I read this book, it was for school! I was in 5th grade, and I absolutely fell in love with this book! I related to Anne so much, and I just loved everything about it.
The Secret Garden
Fifth grade was a really great year for me when it came to required reading. The Secret Garden is another book I read that school year that I ended up loving, too. The first time I read it, I do remember struggling with it a little bit, but eventually I fell in love with this story, and it has been a favorite of mine ever since!
And Then There Were None
I took a mystery literature course in high school, and one of the books we had to read was And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. This book was so mysterious and compelling. I ended up absolutely loving it!
The Hound of the Baskervilles
Another mystery novel I read for school that I adored was The Hound of the Baskervilles. It was the first, and so far, only Sherlock Holmes novel that I’ve read, but I was so intrigued with this book from the beginning to the very end. I read this one in the 8th grade, so it’s been a while since I’ve read it. I’ve actually been wanting to reread it, so maybe I’ll do that soon! I’d love to see what I think of it now!
Island of the Blue Dolphins
I read Island of the Blue Dolphins way back in the 4th grade, so I’ll be honest, I don’t remember everything that happens in this book. That being said, I remember loving this story so much! It was one of those books that I was just completely captivated by. This is another one that I would like to eventually reread, because I remember loving it so much, and I’d like to see what I think of it now!
That wraps up this week’s TTT! Sorry this post was shorter, but life has been busy. Hopefully I’ll be back to posting full Top Ten Tuesday’s soon!
What are some of the books you read for school that you ended up loving more than you expected?
