Road Trip Wednesday #146: Favorite Required Reading Book

Welcome to our 146th Road Trip Wednesday!

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

We'd love for you to participate! Just answer the prompt on your own blog and leave a link - or, if you prefer, you can include your answer in the comments.

(Note for any Road Trip fans on Tumblr: We are also asking all our RTW questions on our YA Highway Tumblr, and you're more than welcome to answer there, or link back to your Tumblr in this post!)

This Week's Topic is: Back to school time! What's your favorite book that you had to read for a class?

Road Trip Song of the Week: "I Can Tell That We Are Gonna Be Friends" by The White Stripes

Next week's topic: What word processing program do you use to write you manuscript, and can you share one handy trick you've learned in that program that has helped you while you write?

  3. I didn't write a post for that because 1) I was in Brazil during HS and then US during college. If it was during HS, all books were Brazilian classics. Boring stuff. 2) And I honestly can't think of any book I had to read for class that I liked. Seriously, none! My teachers/professors weren't nice on their choices ;)

  6. My favorite required reading book was probably The Grapes of Wrath. I still re-read it about every 5-6 years and it seems like a different book every time.

    I didn't know anything about this Blog Carnival, but by chance, I also blogged about reading and what was the book that hooked you. I guess with school starting, we're all 'going back to school' even if it's just in our memories.

  10. I love doing posts like this. It makes me think about why I liked a book despite the fact that someone forced me to read it, which automatically tends to make anyone dislike anything.

    Here is mine!

  17. I don't think there were any required novels that I liked in high school! I did like some of the short stories, though: Yellow Wallpaper, the Lottery, etc. I think that's why I started out writing short stories.
