.Reading Assignment.

I'm going to take zero credit for this idea. I totally stole it from Christina over at Bookishly Boisterous, a must stop for anyone looking for a few suggestions on your reading list or if you just want to share in some ridiculously witty dialogue. She's my fave, but I digress.....the idea that I stole was a Top Ten Reading List of those classic books that had you pouting in school. The ones that Mrs. Elniak forced you to read. You know which ones I'm referring too....{as Christina pointed out} The "Required" List.

Well here are my next "Required" Reading Assignments.
{some I'm re-reading, others I haven't touched before}

one. To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee
two. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
three. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
four. Night by Elie Wiesel
five. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
six. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
seven. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
eight. Lord of the Flies by William Golding
nine. The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
ten. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
eleven. Crime and Punishment by Fydor Dosteyvsky
twelve. Animal Farm by George Orwell
thirteen. Mrs. Dalloway by Virginia Woolf
fourteen. The Giver by Lois Lowry
fifteen. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

I hope you follow my lead and pick up a classic to re-discover for yourself as well.


  1. Thanks for the mention! You've got some good ones on that list- happy reading!

    By the way, I just noticed your 35 before 35. That's such a good idea, and a little scary to think about what will happen to my life in the next seven years!

  2. I know my "35" hits in 5.5 years and it has me just sweating up a storm. Crazy to think about really......


i think comments are pretty awesome!
