April 28: Books I Wish I Had Read As a Child
Some of these are books that everyone else seems to have read back in school, they;re ones I sort of wish I’d been forced to read because I don’t have any particular interest in the story but want to know what everyone’s talking about. Some are YA books that I missed while they were hugely popular, and again, I don’t really care to read, but I feel like I’m missing out on references sometimes.
Does any of that make sense?
I wish I’d studied these in school…
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
I wish I’d read these when they were popular…
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
The Selection by Kiera Cass
I wish I’d read these when I was young enough to really appreciate them…
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
