Top 10 books that don’t require toothpicks

Aside from being a fan of Leo, when I saw that F. Scott Fitzgereld’s The Great Gatsby has been re-made once again, and is out in theatres, I can honestly say that I’m intrigued. I would love to watch it. But I never read The Great Gatsby in school. It wasn’t one of the mandatory books. It was an option in my English Lit class, however, I for some reason, chose Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities. And I would tell you it was good, if I could remember it. But alas, I cannot lie. It was a read-with-toothpicks-holding-my-eyes-open-kind-of-book.

We read a lot of books through school. Some were the toothpick-on-your-eyes kind. Some took some hindsight to appreciate. And some were good.

Here are my top 10 favourite books I read in high school.

10. The Chrysalids by John Wyndham

  1. Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare

  2. Hamlet by William Shakespeare

  3. Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller

  4. Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

  5. Macbeth by William Shakespeare

  6. Lord of the Flies by William Golding

  7. The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger

  8. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

  9. The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank

Do you have a favourite? Did you need toothpicks in your eyes during high school to read one of my picks?
