Feature and Follow Friday: Required Reading




The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read.

Today's question is:

Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?


We weren't required to read many books at school, but one I do remember is "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck, I was enjoying it so much I read to the end when we were only supposed to read to a certain point for homework, backfired on me when the teacher asked us to say what we thought may happen next though!
I also remember a friend of mine having to read "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes, her parents took me on holiday with them, and I ended up reading the whole book instead of her!

  7. Of Mice and Men was one the few books I had to read as well. It was too short for me to get into it.

  8. I've always wanted to read Of Mice and Men. It wasn't required at our school. We didn't read Flowers for Algernon either, but I saw the movie and thought it was awesome! Would've loved it for required reading at school.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF. Followed you back.
