These are my favorite books that I had to read in school in no particular order. Most of these books I read in college.
The Crucible by Arthur Miller- I loved the historical and local aspects of this. This one takes place in my state and the book has so much rich historical content that it was a no brainer to be on this list. It’s about the Salem Witch Trials.
Tartuffe by Molière- I found something so humorous and entertaining about this book. The humor made it easy to read and get through.
Beowulf- I read this in British Lit 1 and even though it was difficult to read due to the language, I really enjoyed the story. And no, I never saw the movie.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald- At first I hated this book, but I learned to love it. It was full of glitz and glamour. It also deals with resistance to change.
Beloved by Toni Morrison- This book deals with slavery, and racism after the end of the Civil War. There is also something so haunting about this book. I really found this book captivating.
Glad to hear you enjoyed reading those! I haven’t read any of these yet, but I’d like to, now.
