A few years ago I had a phase of Classics and other books on the High School reading lists since I never had to read any when I was in HS.
So I had an employee of mine who was in AP classes print me out a copy of her list from the last few years.
I proceeded to read these:
Watership Down by Richard Adams
Tales from Watership Down by Richard Adams
Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen ChBoskey
To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit
Rebecca by Daphine Du Maurier
Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls
The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare
A Chiled Called it by Dave Pelzer
The Lost Boy by Dave Pelzer
A man Named Dave Pelzer
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien (before the movies were around LOL)
The Lord of the Rings-Fellowship of the rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
Something Wicked this way comes by Ray Bradbury
1984 by George Orwell
Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare
The Awakening by Kate Chopin
The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
The Scarlet Letter by Nathanial Hawthorne
I listed them in order to how I liked them, but I do have to tell you about the first few :)
Watership Down will forever remain one of my favorite books... This is a story told through the eyes of the rabbits in the story. Richard Adams created a whole world complete with a language and all! This is the kind of story that you will remember forever...
Flowers for Algernon was an amazing book of human nature, it tells the story in the form of a journal of a mentally retarded man who has brain surgery which makes him a genius, we feel for this character as if we truly know him. I give this book a 5 star rating!
The Perks of being a Wallflower was such a good book that I read it in 24 hours time! This story was in the form of letters from a 15 year old high school boy. You laughed and cried with him through all his ups and downs, it was almost impossible to put down till you've read the last page.
