Ooh, this sounds fun! Okay, let's get started...
Ms. Emily Anne's English Lit Reading List
Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Staying Fat for Sarah Byrnes by Chris Crutcher
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnely
These books are all highly discussable, deal with heavty topics, and have beautiful writing. I would add some classics, but I have never been in a high school or college English Class... Soon though!
So, what are on your lists?
And if, as a teacher, I was feeling particularly nice...
the Harry Potter Books would be included.
