Top Ten Tuesday: Books You Wish Were Taught in School

hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

In honor of the first day of school, here is my list of books that I think should be taught in school.

1. The Giver by Louis Lowery
2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
4. A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
5. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
6. Lizzie Bright and the Buckminster Boy by Gary D. Schmidt
7. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
8. Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
9. In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
10. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien


  1. The Giver was required in my 7th grade class.
    Book Thief and Ender`s Game were required as honors/AP summer reading for my 10th and 11th grade classes.

    I think every student should read The Hobbit. It introduces the reader to a whole new world were the parameters are different then what we are use to in real life. I wish Tolkien could see how popular his stories have become.

    also you have Captcha on and some bloggers don't take the time to write to posts if they have them. They are silly and get annoying after awhile. (Just wanted to let you know)

  2. I never did read A Tree Grows In Brooklyn. Maybe if my school had required it I would have by now! :) Love The Giver and A Wrinkle in Time though. Definitely think The Giver helped shape my little 7th grade mind when my class read it. Wonderful list!
