Six for Sunday [Books I Read At School]

The creator of this weekly Sunday book prompt is A Little But A Lot. The month of September has been school themed, which I think is pretty neat. This week, it is books you can recall reading at school. I’m getting old so I don’t remember all of them, but here are the six I do remember.

  1. Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood. – I remember thinking this book was so strange, that a future like this could never happen. Now I look at the world about ten years later, and I can see how it’s kind of already started. Definitely a good book though.
  2. The Great Gatsby- All I remember is talking about what the eyes on the billboard mean and the green light. Oh yeah, myrtle is killed. When I think of this, I think of the Leonardo DiCaprio movie. Yikes.
  3. Tess of the D’Ubervilles- This Book was so boring. So boring. And such a shamer of females who have sex outside of marriage even when it’s rape and it’s just a gross book. It still makes me annoyed to think about it.
  4. 1984- I didn’t understand why we were talking about the snow globe back then, and I didn’t think it could happen. Once again, I was damn wrong. Especially regarding the depletion of language in the book juxtaposed with some language of today.
  5. Hamlet- Why is the only thing I remember about reading this in high school was doing an oral presentation on it? I remember in college there’s a weird modern movie version. I mostly just think of The Lion King.
  6. The Hunger Games- I read it for a college class. Everyone was like this book focuses on war, and all I could think about was how much I loved Peeta. Oop.

These are the six books I remember from school. What books do you remember? I can’t be the only one who read these for school, I think… make sure you check out other six for Sunday posts or let me know if you’re doing one!

Until I rant about books again,

Six for Sunday [Characters I’d Love To Be Friends With]

Another first for me. This is from the blog, A little but a lot. The month of September seems to be school themed. So anyway. Here are six characters I’d love to be friends with.

  1. Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter. I don’t know about you, she just seems like she would be a lot of fun. I like weird and just think being friends with Luna would be absolutely amazing.
  2. Isabelle Lightwood from The Mortal Instruments. I wish I was a bad ass. Isabelle is a bad ass, and I just need a friend who is to afraid to be kick ass and brave at the same time.
  3. Lada Dracul from The Conquers Saga. I can’t imagine anything cooler than a friend who impales her enemies. Enough said.
  4. Jane Eyre. I just really want to be friends with her because it’s my favorite book. And I think she’s so interesting, I’d love to talk to her about growing up how she did and how she survived mentally.
  5. Matilda. As someone who loves books and was the same way as a kid, it would be cool to be friends with a girl who loves books just as much as me and has magical powers.
  6. Jo March from Little Women. Jo is so strong and determined. She never gives up on her dreams to be a writer. I want the same tenacity and strength she has to, especially when she has to deal with tough times in her family.

Those are all of the book characters I would love to be friends with. I know it’s a lame list, but I can’t help who I am. I would love to know who you would want to be friends with or if you like any of these characters as well. If you do your own S4S post, I’d love to see it. And be sure to check out the original creator of the post as well.
