In school

4 Required Readings you may Actually enjoy

   Some of those books they have us read in high school are just plain mean, others we tend to overlook. Here are a few required readings that aren't completely a snoozer.

          Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger - A lot of my older friends say they liked this book when they were kids, and hated it as an adult. I will admit there isn't too much action, but Holden Caulfield (the main character) is pretty interesting.

          The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald - This was the most popular book my class read in high school. The newest movie probably had a lot to do with that, but regardless the book is just a gorgeous as the film. I love the descriptive language and the crazy parties in this one.

          The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - This is my all time favorite fiction book. We didn't get to read it at my high school, but a lot of schools get to. It's set in Germany during World War Two but I would not call it a war nove. 

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbra Kingsolver - I havent gotten the chance to read this one myself yet but one of my closest friends recommended it to me from her AP English class. I'll have to put this one on my summer reading list.
