message 1: by [deleted user] (new)

Lol, I recognize nine of these books! The funny thing is, I'm a Sophomore in High School:D


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I had more than a few of these in high school - I went to rather old-fashioned schools, though...


message 3: by Linda (new)

Linda I read some of these in high school (all the Shakespeare), but none in college. Some I read while I was in high school/college; not because they were assigned but because they fit my interests at the time. Many are classics I have more recently challenged myself to read. Others I have never heard of!


message 4: by Penny (new)

Penny The novels I read were because I was doing English Literature papers. Women's fiction, Modern (20th century) Fiction, Romantic Literature, Renaissance Literature etc etc. And later on, some were for my 3 Writing diplomas - Diploma in Creative Writing, Advanced Diploma in Creative Writing (Novel) and Graduate Diploma in Creative Writing (Novel). We looked at very eclectic ranges of work from popular fiction to what is often termed 'classic'. I didn't enjoy them all but I'm glad I can say I've read them!
