Q: Back to school. Create a reading list for the imaginary English Lit class you’ll be teaching this semester.
This is a good task, I think I'll have a mix of some of stuff I had to read at school and some of my favourite books! Not all of them will be seen as "academic" but what the heck, this is my class after all. I hope you enjoy them...
An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestly
Yeah, I really didn't like this book when I had to read it at school. Everyone else can suffer through it as well!
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
How could I not put this on the list?
A Midsummers Nights Dream by William Shakespeare
I actually really liked this one, its so magical and lets be honest, Romeo and Juliet is done way too much these days. I want you to appreciate something else by Shakespeare.
Crank by Ellen Hopkins
I think that every teenager should be made aware of drugs and I think this would be a different way to do so. The verse layout would definitely be a good discussion point as well!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Her writing is beautiful and definitely shows us the importance of world building!
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Just because I can!
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Had to throw a bit of Austen in there.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
I'm reading this at the minute, everyone in the world should read it.
Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman
It's thought provoking and looks at racism in a tasteful way. Great book for discussion.
What would be on your reading list? Would it be a mix of books or classic literature? Leave a comment below as I'd love to know.
