The creator of this weekly Sunday book prompt is A Little But A Lot. The month of September has been school themed, which I think is pretty neat. This week, it is books you can recall reading at school. I’m getting old so I don’t remember all of them, but here are the six I do remember.
- Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. – I remember thinking this book was so strange, that a future like this could never happen. Now I look at the world about ten years later, and I can see how it’s kind of already started. Definitely a good book though.
- The Great Gatsby- All I remember is talking about what the eyes on the billboard mean and the green light. Oh yeah, myrtle is killed. When I think of this, I think of the Leonardo DiCaprio movie. Yikes.
- Tess of the D’Ubervilles- This Book was so boring. So boring. And such a shamer of females who have sex outside of marriage even when it’s rape and it’s just a gross book. It still makes me annoyed to think about it.
- 1984- I didn’t understand why we were talking about the snow globe back then, and I didn’t think it could happen. Once again, I was damn wrong. Especially regarding the depletion of language in the book juxtaposed with some language of today.
- Hamlet- Why is the only thing I remember about reading this in high school was doing an oral presentation on it? I remember in college there’s a weird modern movie version. I mostly just think of The Lion King.
- The Hunger Games- I read it for a college class. Everyone was like this book focuses on war, and all I could think about was how much I loved Peeta. Oop.
These are the six books I remember from school. What books do you remember? I can’t be the only one who read these for school, I think… make sure you check out other six for Sunday posts or let me know if you’re doing one!
Until I rant about books again,
