Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books and Plays I Had to Read for School

Top Ten Tuesday is a fabulous feature hosted at The Broke and the Bookish. This Tuesday, we were given a freebie and could pick whatever topic we wanted. So I decided to compile a list of the best books and plays I had to read for school. I considered books from elementary school to high school.

Night by Elie Wiesel
Read in 9th grade

Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech
Read in 5th grade

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Read in 9th grade

1984 by George Orwell
Read in 12th grade

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Read in 11th grade

A Separate Peace by John Knowles
Read in 10th grade

The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien
Read in 10th grade

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
Read in 11th grade

The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
Read in 11th grade


Macbeth by William Shakespeare
Read in 12th grade

Okay, so I only included one play, but I honestly just didn't read that many that really grabbed me. I am especially partial to the books in the top five; they had the biggest effect on me. Did you have to read any of these for school? Did you like/dislike any of them? Feel free to leave your list in the comments so I can take a look!

  1. 'The Great Gatsby' all the way at number five. Shame.
