Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, featuring a different top 10 theme each week. This week’s topic is a Back To School Freebie — so I’ve decided to focus on books from my school days that I’d really like to revisit someday.
Here are ten books from my middle and high school reading adventures that I recall fondly… and really should re-read to see if they still grab my attention:
1) Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O’Dell
2) A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
3) Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
4) Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton
5) Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes
6) 1984 by George Orwell
7) Hiroshima by John Hersey
8) The Lottery by Shirley Jackson
9) Nectar in a Sieve by Kamala Markanday
10) Seven Gothic Tales by Isak Dinesen
