Feature & Follow #5

Share it Please
Feature & Follow is a weekly meme hosted by, Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week, each host will have their own Feature Blog which allows them to show off more new blogs! It is a fun way to keep in touch with fellow bloggers, meet new bloggers and gain new followers.

This Weeks Question Is:

Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?
Hmm. I've answered this question before, but... I have a few, my  favorite books that I was required to read were:

Under the Feet of Jesus by Helena Maria Viramontes (which I read in the summer before I started my sophomore year of high school, it was a required summer read)
The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd (I don't quite remember when I read this one, but I was in high school)
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho (I read this my freshman year in college.. great book!)


What about you? What was your favorite book that you were required to read when you were in school?

  5. Nice! I didn't have to read any of those, so I am not familiar with them. I really only ever enjoyed one book that I had to read and that goes through college too!

  14. I read the Secret Life of Bees and The Alchemist (no school requirements though) I enjoyed them both. Though was surprised at how popular The Alchemist is... it didn't blow me away

    1. The Alchemist didn't blow me away either, I was just surprised I ended up liking it because it was waaay out of my preferred genres. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend :)
