  • salexandra ~ I read just about everything on your list, too, in school! I actually liked reading Lord of the Flies for some strange reason. We also read And Then There Were None, which was a good one. Edgar Allen Poe became a favorite of mine, but I could never get into Shakespeare!

    I'm so pleased to see some of the same books being read from the time I read them!

  • Hm we never read any books in our english class to be honest. We read plays and poetry alot! But the one book we did read was "A child called it" ... i CRIED! I got to one part and left the classroom bc it was too sad. I was in a class w/ the football/basketball players and to see them teary eyed and leave the room, and than ask about the author and how he is now,and how someone could do that to a child...and just the questions they asked were very heartfelt

  • Brave New World - Aldous Huxley

  • Pride and Prejudice, I cannot ever read that book enough. We read, Inherit the Wind, A Raisin In The Sun, The Red Badge Of Courage, Animal Farm, Lord Of The Flies, Catcher In The Rye, The Scarlet Letter, Wuthering Heights, Many of Edgar Allen Poe's stories, but he is not really a fave of mine. I will never remember all of them, but I took an American Lit class as a Sophomore and it was my favorite class off all time...Oh and Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, loved Tennessee Williams and Samuel Clements.  Love Gone With The Wind.  I am a book worm.  The above books I was forced to read in school and I loved them.  But I love all kinds of books from classics to trash.  Love LaVryle Spencer and Rosemary Rogers.
