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.
The Jungle by Upton Sinclair or The Odyssey by Homer. Or Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe, even if Eva made me want to stab myself out of hatred for her.
