It’s time for TGIF again, thanks to Ginger at GReads!
So this week’s TGIF topic is:
Back to School Reading: Which books would you like to see in today’s high school Literature classrooms?
I actually just briefly touched on this in my
rant discussion post from August 1st (Are Books Back?).
My high school (albiet almost 10 years later) reads awesome books. Well, NOW they do. When I was there, it was all classics. Here are some books that would have been nice to read in high school (2001-2005):
A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray (2003)
Looking For Alaska by John Green (2005)
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky (1999)
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card (1985)
And here are some books that I’ve read lately that I think high schoolers now would enjoy and would even fit well in classrooms:
Such A Rush by Jennifer Echols
The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
Graceling by Kristin Cashore
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
The Help by Kathyrn Stockett
What do you guys think? Agree with any of these? Know what’s going on in your (old) high school?
