Follow Friday (7)

This is a weekly theme hosted by Parajunkee's View & Alison Can Read.

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

I picked two books for this! The required book I had to read in 9th grade was To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I just loved this book so much. It was one of the books that made me want to start reading more. The required book I read in 11th grade was The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien. This book took a little while to get into but it was just amazing. I didn't think I would like it because its about these soldiers during Vietnam, but it was so good. The writing was so beautiful. I loved it.

    I loved "To Kill a Mockingbird," but have never read "The Things They Carried." A copy is buried somewhere in my TBR pile.

    Have a great Friday!

  9. Every school seemed to study To Kill a Mockingbird except mine. I think it could have selected it but they went for Of Mice and Men instead. Too much description in my opinion. I needed stuff to happen.

    Now following you! :)
