As a recent high school graduate, I have read my share of required reading over the past four years of my life. I'm sure that the amount will grow as I enter college. While I loved some of my required reading, I despised some of it as well. If I was able to pick my own required reading, this would be my list (I'm including some books that I was required to read. They will be written in green).
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Hamlet by William Shakespeare
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora - Neale Hurston
The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling
Paper Towns by John Green
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
That's my reading list. What's Yours? Let me know in the comments.
