message 1: by Christi (new)

Christi Merritt I made this list based on my own required reading and what we sell the most of at the book store where I work. Lord of the Flies is definitely the most popular in my area. We have to carry a fairly large quantity of that one and we still run out a lot.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads The most popular one with my classmates was definitely To Kill a Mockingbird.

Jennifer Wow... were they trying to traumatize us? I'm just realizing how dark and depressing most of these were. And the more depressing, the more I seemed to love them.

My husband made a comment that they often try to get us to read the most awful saddest things. He is very thankful he never had to read Lord of the Flies. The one that depressed me most was Heart of Darkness. I try to avoid sad stuff now but cried at the movies last night.
