  1. I really loved TKAM too! I also found the concept of Fahrenheit 451 really intersting. I haven't read The Kite Runner, but my friend absolutely loved it!

  2. Steinbeck has some great work. Mice and Men was one of the books on the top of my list Grapes of Wrath was also great.

  4. I never had to read To Kill A Mockingbird in grade nine- kind of wish I had because I'm seeing it being chosen all over the place! I'm a new follower!

    Here's My FF

  6. oooh of Mice and Men -- LOVED! that was a good one.

  7. Oh great choices! You listed a few that I enjoyed but had completely forgotten about! Like Fahrenheit 451 and The Kite Runner! I remember being pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed both of those books. Especially The Kite Runner. I kind of didn't expect to like it since it isn't my usual kind of book, but I ended up really enjoying it. It's such a moving story.

    Awesome picks! I'm a new GFC follower. :)

  16. I liked To Kill a Mockingbird. I think I had to read Fahrenheit 451 and maybe tried, but definitely didn't finish or I switched to a different class and didn't have to read it anymore...I'm not really sure lol. I did read Of Mice and Men and I did not like it. As for the last one, I've never read that one.

    Have a great weekend!
