TGIF (17) Required Reading


TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by Ginger at GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.


This Friday's Question:
Required Reading: Which book from your school days do you remember reading and enjoying? Is there a book published now that you'd like to see in today's curriculum for kids?

From memory the only book that I remember reading in highschool was One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey which was an awesome book, and though when I watched the movie in year 9 ( I think that was in 1998.. wow.. that long ago? lol) I loved the movie even more.  Jack Nicholson played an awesome Psych ward patient!

There are a few books I'd like to see in high school today.  The first one would be Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden.  Actually the whole series of that really.  I think there could be alot learned by reading these books and they are quite an enjoyable read!

The Messenger/I am The Messenger by Markus Zusack.  Although I think this should be aimed at mature teens I think this could be another one that is both entertaining and something that teens would also enjoy and take something away from.  This is also one of my favourite books of all time!
