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
Overall I think it'd be To Kill a Mockingbird.
We did go over that book so much though because it was so applicable to critical lens essays. (I live in a regents state.) But I graduated with an advanced regents diploma which looks so much prettier than the regular diplomas. That is so sad to say.
