To Kill a Mockingbird probably... I really liked it. A lot of the books people are mentioning I really liked, but I didn't read them in school... yet.

Mine would have to be "The Great Gatsby" honestly my mind was blown. so few pages told such a beautiful story. Ill never forget the subtly of the characters and themes and honestly loved going to that class to study it!

Julius Caesar by Shakespeare. Ironic because earlier in the year we had to do an awful project and take a horrible test on Caesar in our honors world and European history class so no one was excited to hear that we'd be reading Caesar in honors lit, but as it turns out, it was a hit!

The boy in the striped pajamas probably. It was terribly sad but I'm a sucker for WW2 books, dunno why. I also enjoyed Julius Caesar if that counts as a book.. I suppose it does.

I really enjoyed reading Of Mice and Men this year and To Kill a Mockingbird. I think both of those are excellent books and I honestly would love to read them again. Other than that I haven't been assigned many other books yet.

Lord of the Flies. I never would've read this book outside of class, but it happens to be a really excellently written book, that's not just murderous schoolboys, but also really complicated and layered and awesome.

Mine would have to be To Kill an Mockingbird. I will be assigned in September, but I like reading books more than once, so I decided to read it before then. It's a really great book, and lot of people told me not to waste my time, but none of it was close to a waste. Harper Lee is fantastic.

Probably Milkweed by Jerry Spinelli. It doesn't top my all-time favorites list, but it's my favorite out of all school-assigned books

As I'm scrolling down these replies, I'm thinking, "Don't look, spoilers, no, can't spoil The Outsiders for me- Wait... WHO DIES?!"

My favorite would have to be Three Cups of Tea. Read it in sixth grade, and it really opened my eyes to the world outside the luxuries of my home country. If you haven't read it, I highly reccomend that you do.

The Outsiders, Of Mice and Men, and To Kill A Mockingbird! 

I had Les Miserables assigned ages ago when I was still in school, because I'm in Belgium and French is my second language, we read it in its original French language.


I loved the story and have seen every adaption (except the musical) since then

Last years, we had to read Steinbeck's East of Eden. I adored that book, so it's a toss up between that and The Outsiders.
