Top Ten Tuesday: Books I was ‘Forced’ to Read

The Broke and the Bookish have come up with another thrilling topic for us book bloggers to conjure with. So the verb is a little strong (‘made’ would suffice), but you get the gist: this is a list of books that I had little option but to read, most of which I’m glad I did.

What were you made to read?

    We had to read ‘Romeo and Juliet’, like most people would have. The best part was the innuendos, as we used to pretend we couldn’t understand them so that our teacher had to explain them in detail until he blushed.

    The fact that you acted as Cinderella’s step sister is terrifying. BAH! Also, this list makes me feel bad as a teacher that I have to force books on my students. One day we will perfect the, “choose your own book and still learn” method. : ) PS. I was forced to read Jane Smiley by friends and I hated every minute, so I feel ya.


  3. Wow, I actually haven’t read any of these. Lord of the Flies has been on my TBR list for years, though!
