Is there a book that you were required to read in school that you actually loved? – Suggested by Natalie Hearts Books.
Nervous Nell Says…
I was required to read a lot of books and I really didn’t like any of them. I mean, they were fine, but not ones that sit on my favorites shelf and I go back to time and again. As Ivana can tell you, I am not a fan of the classics. Just not my thing.
Jane Eyre. I was assigned the book for an advanced literature/reading class in high school. Though I loved history, I wasn’t excited about it… until I started reading. Have you read this book? It’s an Edwardian soap opera! I devoured it over the weekend and shocked the teacher. We had a goal to read 50 pages a day; I read the 400 page Jane Eyre in a weekend. But that was no big deal around my house growing up. I don’t think I’ve read it since, but have thought about it. Now, I’d be more likely to read Jane Slayre. 🙂
