High School




I was recently going through (stealing) books that my brother left here and I came upon some oldies that I read in high school. It made me think that I probably didn't appreciate a lot of them. For example: I hated Lord of the Flies, but when I think about it - it's right up my alley. So, I started re-reading some of them. I read To Kill a Mockingbird again (I actually read that in middle school, but it's one of my fave's so I don't really care), and I just read The Great Gatsby again (still awesome)! Since I switched schools and states in the middle of HS I feel like I missed on out some too (Dorian Gray, Jane Eyre...) So I am going to re-read and read some of those that I felt I missed out on! My all time favorite book I read in HS was The Most Dangerous Game... it's a masterpiece!
