A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

My school system doesn't assign many awesome books but I really liked this one.

The Yellow Wallpaper - all of our assigned books seem to have an underlying feminist message, but hey-ho that's what you get for going to the same school as Margaret Thatcher

"Brave New World"

Fantastic book. Creepy how close to the mark Huxley was getting to our own society that far back.

A Thousand Splendid Suns, totally worth a read.

To Kill a Mocking Bird  

I was only ever assigned 2 books to read in secondary school: Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor, and Lies of Silence by Brian Moore.

Definitely Roll of Thunder was my favourite; the other being one of my least favourite books that I have *ever* read.

Ian McEwan's On Chesil Beach

Although a little explicit on content at one very brutal moment this book was amazing and showed to me pacing like no other book could. Ian McEwan can show the wingbeats of a hummingbird in slow motion before heartbreakingly speeding through the rest of someones life. A beautiful but ultimately sad read which wouldn't of been found without my college teacher. 

Frankenstein, The Great Gatsby, Brave New World, and To Kill a Mockingbird. I really enjoyed all of these books. 

My favourite is quite recent actually. I was assigned "Del-Del" by Victor Kelleher. It was a really bizarre novel but it was fun to write an essay about!

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. 

The Outsiders
