Feature and Follow #19

Hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read, go check out thier blogs!


Back to School time! Create a reading list for the imaginary English Lit class you'll be teaching this semester. 

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.


  1. Great list! I've got The Fault in Our Stars on my kindle but haven't gotten to it yet. Hopefully soon, though. :D Old Follower here.

    My FFs are at Musings on Fantasia and LKHill. Happy Friday!

  2. Lol HP made my list too, but mandatory, not as a treat, haha. Great list!

    Amanda @ i solemnly swear

  3. The Fault in our Stars in the only one from that list I've read; except, of course, for Harry Potter :)

  6. Hopping through. Love TFIOS. I like Revolution more than Northern Light, but it's good too.

  7. That damn Book Thief. People keep saying how awesome it is...week after week. It won't stop until I give in and read it....AHHH!!! Being stalked by a book! *runs away*

  11. Emily I love your list, I could have written this myself LOL

    I've also got The Book Thief in my list. I actually studied a Melina Marchetta book at school, Looking for Alibrandi, so I also added On the Jellicoe Road to my list as I think her books are awesome to discuss. We had such a great time reading Looking for Alibrandi, I loved the book so much I revisited it after I left school :D

    My Friday Hop

  12. I never read any of these, I must confess. But The fault in our stars is definitively on my wishlist.

    Here's my Friday Hop.

  13. Thanks for stopping by my Feature & Follow!

    I haven't read The Fault in Our Stars, but I have heard some really great things about it, so that's probably a good choice! Can't argue The Book Theif; more people definitely need to read that book!

  16. I almost put harry potter on mine but figured 7 books on top of the regular would be way too much! I have fault in our stars on mine too! and I've had speak on my shelf forever just haven't read it yet!
