7 Wonderful Books I Read In School
The Best Books I Read In School
Everyone remembers reading a great book in school! Here's a list of some really good books I've read in school. I'm sure you'll notice some that you may have already read. But as for the ones you haven't read, go give them a read, you won't be disappointed.
*There are still more books I'm hoping to add to this page overtime.
English Class & The Library
The obvious places we read books in school were for english class or when we visited the library. I can still remember when I came across the first Harry Potter book in the library. I was looking for something good to read and checking the covers and descriptors for a whole bunch of books. I read what it was about & was semi-intrigued, but I ended up passing on it!
I wasn't in the mood for that type of book at that time. It's like listening to genres of music or watching a movie, you have to be in the mood for it.
In retrospect, I'm actually glad I didn't read it because I loved all the movies and it would have certainly ruined the movies for me. When I read a book, my mind paints the settings and peoples faces. In turn, the screen adaptations are usually way off from what my mind has drawn them to look like. Someday I plan on reading all the Harry Potter novels to tie up all the loose ends and enjoy J.K. Rowling's masterpiece as she wrote it.
Here are some great books that I enjoyed reading in school...........
Have You Read The Harry Potter Books?
Romeo & Juliet
The Definitive Love Story! Withstanding Time Itself!
William Shakespeare! The eloquent wordsmith of centuries past, wrote this, as most of us know. A tale of two ill fated lovers, caught in the middle of their families feuding rivalry. Loving in secret and wishing to profess it upon high. This golden of a story needs no more description seeing as how it's pretty much common knowledge.
An epic tragedy of love gained and love lost.
The Montagues or the Capulets?
Which Family Do You Like Better?
A future world without problems or feelings?
Set in a future utopian where everyone is similar and follow the same paths. A boy is tasked with something he must do and as he learns and understands his world better he must make a choice. It's a story of humanity & what makes us who we are. Struggles, Fears, Feelings, Indifference. What makes us each different than the other and why it's better than being a mindless robot set only to the rules of apathetic complacency. If you like or end up liking this book, you should definitely check out the movie "Equilibrium" starring Christian Bale.

Have You Read The Diary of Anne Frank?
A Monster or An Emotionally Needy Corpse With Abandonment Issues?
I'm sure you know the story. A Scientist creates a living being out of miscellaneous body parts and doesn't like his results. The monster seeks acceptance & understanding. Without being helped, he begins a deadly campaign of revenge. Well this should teach you to love that which you make, especially if it's your baby. Don't abandon your kids or your monsters. Plainly put, it messes them up. They may just end up being a miscreant of society, fearing fire. Show your monster some love! or he'll break you! Fool! LoL
I loved the way it was written because it always had me worrysome. Guessing where the monster was going to show up & who his next victim would be. Almost as if he was real and was going to just suddenly appear behind you and confront you.

Have You Ever Read Flowers for Algernon?
One Bad Apple Ruins The Bunch!
A satire based on the Russian Revolution. The story revolves around animals of a farm. The book starts out with their leader giving a final speech, seeing as how he's dying and does so. It's up to some head pigs to take over and keep everyone together. One bad animal up-ends their world. Like a virus, his likeness spreads to others. Making it a cruel, cruel state of affairs. It's a story of dying hope and the absolute darkness that someone can possess & unleash when greed & ego is involved.
It's a must read!
*I remember reading this for english class and being shocked at the manner in which the bad animal would act. I literally jawdropped at one instance. I'm always conscious of the fact that there are monsters in this world. It's undeniable, a way of life. We would never learn anything if mistakes and negative forces weren't present. That's why were here.
It's the learning & never letting it happen again that's important! Anyone who fails to learn from history, is destined/doomed to repeat it!
