Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school? 

Yes, I was definitely the dork that actually loved the books assigned in English class each year. A few of my favorites that I can remember include Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, A Separate Peace by John Knowles, The Awakening by Kate Chopin, The Diary of Anne Frank and Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck.


  1. Oh wow! I was an English major but yet I never really enjoyed the books I HAD to read. I think it's because I had to read them. Or I was already craving paranormal and didn't like what I had to read!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  5. Oh geez. Other than Romeo and Juliet the only book in that list that we were required to read was "The Diary of Anne Frank". I did enjoy that one though. Sad and honest.

  9. Thanks for the follow!

    I studied Romeo and Juliet a few years ago, and while it's safe to say that the majority of the class had no clue what was going on, I absolutely loved it.


  10. My favorite was Into The Wild. Actually made me cry a bit. Hah :)

  14. I read Romeo and Juliet and The Diary of Anne Frank as a high school freshman. I had a really great reading list that year.

    Thanks for stopping by and following! Following you back via GFC.

  15. Oh my laaawd! you woulda been my best friend in school xD I couldn't staaand those books in English class. But when we finally left the classics alone and ventured more into mythology, then and only then did I actually perk up and pay more attention. I could actually sit there and read Shakespeare and understand it, I just didn't like it. Didn't even like the movies or the "somewhat" modern remake they made.. *sigh* that was a waste of film and precious time in my opinion. >.< But hey, that's just me. Thanks for stopping by my FF. Follow you back <3

    p.s. I saw you recently read One Breath Away by Heather Gudenkauf... I was just in a live chat with her via and got to ask her a few questions. She's a pretty amazing person. Very humble. I won a copy of One Breath Away during the live chat. I'm super excited to read it once it arrives in the mail :) Okay.. sorry for writing such a long comment on your post. hehe. Have a great weekend!

    1. Have a great weekend too! That's cool about the live chat. The book was good, a few predictable parts, but definitely suspenseful enough to keep me up late to finish it.

  16. Ha! I'm glad I wasn't the only one who had to read the diary of Anne Frank ... Anyway, thanks for stopping by my blog and following, I've returned the love and followed you too. I hope you have a great weekend!
