Q: Summer reading. What was your favourite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?
Grade 8 Vivi says, "The Giver" by Lois Lowry
This was a chilling book. Perhaps you guys would think differently but at that time I was 13 and it creeped me out big time, but I still really liked it!
Grade 11 Vivi #1 says, "Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures" by Vincent Lam
Best high school mandatory read for me so far. Very glad that I was required to read this one, since it's not something I'd usually read, but I'd recommend this one! Trust me, medical stories are faaaaaar from my taste, but I still loved this. It's compelling, very well written, and each small segment offers a special something.
Grade 11 Vivi #2 says, "The Virgin Suicides" by Jeffrey Eugenides
There's a movie for this one! This book I chose for my final English assignment out of a selection. And it was absolutely amazing. No kidding. If you're going to watch the movie, read the book first because the film represents the book quite well in essence and you'll appreciate both more!
-looks back- Okay. Now that I look at it this way, all three of these were pretty heavy, depressing reads. >_< -sigh-
