Top Ten Tuesday: Back To School Freebie

This week's Ten:
Back To School Freebie:
5 Books I'm Glad I Read in School
5 Books I Wish I'd Read in School
(ie other classes/schools read them but not me)

 The ones I read in school . . . 
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

Zlata's Diary: A Child's Life in Wartime Sarajevo by Zlata Filipović

Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe

Parallel Journeys by Eleanor H. Ayer, with Alfons Heck, Helen Waterford

and these are the ones I wish I'd read . . .
The Lord of the Flies by Richard Golding
(This one could really be either list: none of my classes ever read it but then I read it to help a sibling with a project, so . . . )

Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston

1984 by George Orwell

Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

The Giver by Lois Lowry

Please leave a comment and let me know your favorite read-in-school books or those that others read in school and you wish you had. (If there's one not on my list you think I should read, let me know that, too!)
