Out of a lot of books which I probably don't recall...
The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson (GREAT NERDFIGHTER BOOK)
My Side of the Mountain
The Tale of Two Cities
The Adventures of Huck Finn
Black Boy (which is now banned at my school... which is sad.)
Shakespeare this year. Last year my teacher didn't go through it as thoroughly as I would've liked, but this year I loved it. Plus we did Romeo and Juliet and it just annoyed me.
I'm relieved to see Fahrenheit 451 here, though. It's my book for summer reading. :)
It seems, for me, liking assigned books is a 50/50 chance, but some of the books I genuinely enjoyed were:
*A Tale of Two Cities
*In Cold Blood
*East of Eden
I also usually end up reading books before they're assigned...like Jane Eyre. <3
Favorite assigned book - Lord of the Flies. A classic!
Favorite assigned play - Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
