TOP TEN Required Reading books
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
1. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
2. The Giver by Lois Lowry
3. Gideon's Trumpet by Anthony Lewis
4. Lies My Teacher Told Me by James Loewen
5. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
Honorary Mention: The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster
6. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
8. Call of the Wild by Jack London
9. Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
10. Frankenstein: The Graphic Novel (this one is on here only because it was a graphic novel and I'm not a huge fan- I really want to read the original book!)
Even though I didn't enjoy reading the last five, I'm still glad I read them. They all taught me something (for ex. about the ideas of the time period in which they were written) or hold some value (for ex. Beowulf being the first English writing). All of these books, the good and the bad, were an experience, you know?
