Question: Is there a book that you were required to read in school that you actually loved? - Suggested by

Natalie Hearts Books. 

Answer:  Yes! There were a lot of books that I had to read and still do (since I'm still in school) that I really enjoyed reading. For example: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë, One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, Beloved  by Toni Morrison, among others. I've read these in high school and I completely fell in love with them. My ultimate favorite though would have to be One Hundred Years of Solitude, I highly recommend it. (:

Nice! Think I only had to read Gatsby from this batch. The rest were not required reading. That I can remember! LOL! Too many years of reading books I hated. Though it wasn't until I was a senior that I finally read one and liked it!

Here's my Follow Friday

Have a GREAT day!

I agree with you on The Great Gatsby! I loved that book :) But we'll have to agree to disagree on Wuthering Heights. I couldn't stand it!

I've read The Great Gatsby. I hated it mainly because as we read we had to write down every instance of a mentioned color, which made it so I wasn't really reading it for the content.

@Jessica @ a GREAT read

I was required to read way too many books in high school, a few that I didn't really liked, but the most part I enjoyed the rest. Thanks for stopping by Jessica! (:

The Great Gatsby was pretty good! Forgot about that one! Thanks for visiting my F&F!

I didn't like The Great Gatsby, so I didn't read it for class. I've only seen movie versions of Wuthering Heights.

I totally agree with your choice of "One Hundred Years of Solitude"! Although the plot is complex, and just about everybody's last name is "Buendia", it's a true masterpiece!

As for the other books you've mentioned, I haven't read them, but now would be a great time to plan on doing so!

Thanks for your thoughts! Old follower. : )
