This week’s topic is:

Top Ten Books I was Forced to Read

OK well here we go! I’m not sure if I can fill this list because I can’t say I’m forced to read a lot of books but I’ll try! No particular order.

  1. Brave New World – Aldous Huxley : This was one of hose books I was forced to read in school. Sometimes you’ll read a good book this way but I couldn’t stand this one. I thought it was boring and a little weird.
  2. The Outsiders – S.E. Hinton: This was another school read. I actually liked this one and was really glad we had to read it.
  3. The Kite Runner – Khaled Hosseini: Another school read. I really liked this one as well but it was a little intense at times. Not something I would have normally picked.
  4. To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee: School read, once again. A really good classic.
  5. Sense and Sensibility – Jane Austen: This one I read for a book report for school. We had to specifically choose a classic and this is what I picked. I personally like Jane Austen and I don’t find her that hard to read.
  6. Romeo and Juliet – Shakespeare: Probably his worst play but the most popular. I didn’t enjoy this one.
  7. Bumped – Megan McCafferty: This one I wasn’t exactly forced to read but I started it and once I start a book I have to finish. I hated it the moment I started and felt obligated to finish.
  8. A Discovery of Witches – Deborah Harkness: A friend loaned me this book so I had to read it. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. The second book is a lot better.
  9. Pretty Little Liars – Sara Shepard: My sisters thought this was the best series ever and I had to read it. Probably one of the worst decisions of my life. Don’t bother reading this series, you’ll regret it.
  10. The Alchemist – Paulo Coelho: Another loaner book. When somebody gives you a book you have to read it. I couldn’t stand this book though. It was boring and I didn’t understand the point of anything.

Anyways here you go! I hope you guys enjoy it!

What are your top tens? Post a link!

  1. Ohh! I loved To Kill a Mockingbird, The Outsiders, and I thought Romeo & Juliet was, eh, okay, it was interesting, but I didn’t agree with anything that happened in the plot, etc. Plus, my teacher was OBSESSED with Shakespeare. No joke. She had a giant cardboard cutout of him in the class room and it was the creepiest thing ever. I like Pretty Little Liars, but only the show. I gave the books a try and, yeck. 🙂

    • I really really hated Pretty Little Liars. It was 100% predictable for me. I couldn’t stand any if the characters and every cliche you can think of was in that book.
