Top Ten Books I Read In High School – Top Ten Tuesday

Am I the only person that enjoyed some of the assigned reading??? Probably. Anyway, this week’s Top Ten Tuesday was a free choice, so I decided to do this in honor of me starting my freshman year of college!


1. The Odyssey by Homer

I really love Greek and Roman Mythology so i was the only person in my class who was excited to read this behemoth.

2. Oedipus Rex by Sophocles

Probably the one of the weirdest books I read in high school. But it’s a Greek tragedy so that’s kind of expected.

3. Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis

Did I mention that I love Greek mythology? And Greece in General.

4. Macbeth by William Shakespeare

I’ve not read very many Shakespeare plays but this one is my favorite. Lady Macbeth is the best shakespeare character ever!

5. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

Who doesn’t like The Great Gatsby?

6. A Street Car Named Desire by Tennessee Williams

Tennessee Williams is an amazing story teller. This is the best play I read in High School. It covers a lot of heavy topics but its amazing. And yes, I did read this edition with a shirtless Marlon Brando… I actually made a shirt for him by drawing over a notecard and taping it over the book cover lol.

7. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry

I read this book in 5th grade so technically it doesn’t count but shhhh.

8. Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe

I’m pretty sure that this is the only book that has ever made me cry.

9. I Never Had It Made by Jackie Robinson

I actually really like sports history, and I’d recommend it to anyone else who likes sports history, baseball, black history, or Jackie Robinson.

10. The Crucible by Arthur Miller

We had to read this my junior year and I thought I was going to hate it but my best friend said I would love it. She was right. Even if you have a hard time reading “olde english” type books the drama in The Crucible is very easy to see.

11. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

Everyone knows that this is a really important piece of literature but it’s also really really good.

I’d love to hear all about your Top Ten Tuesday (a bookish meme hosted every Tuesday by The Broke and The Bookish). Feel free to leave your TTT down in the comments and let me know what you thought about mine!

  1. Great topic, I never could love any of the classics I was made to read at high school – but I did really enjoy reading King Lear by Shakespeare 😀
