Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Books that we think should be, or were if/when we took AP English?


message 2: by Luis (new)

Luis TZ D:
i read 8 of these books in a.p,
Heart of darkness was kinda hard,,
but still amazing


message 3: by Michelle (new)

Michelle I read, I think, like 4 of these so far... they were interesting. I have to say that I liked "Ethan Frome" the least, and probably "Wuthering Heights" the most- so far.


message 4: by Pam (new)

Pam Masters I read quite a few of these in high school. There's 1 on the list that I have read that wasn't from high school. Not all are rated high, but I think there are several on the list that should be read for AP, and some that weren't on the list.


message 5: by Samantha (new)

Samantha Which ones are most highly recommended for the test?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads In my AP English course, at least, we read a great many classics (nothing post 1950, as far as I can remember). As for what's best for the test - I really don't know, as I took it over 25 years ago, and things have undoubtedly changed since then. But when I took it, having read broadly as well as deeply helped a great deal.


message 7: by Samantha (new)

Samantha Thank you i'm taking it next year and wanted to know what my summer reading should be.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I guess I'd look at some stone-cold classics I haven't read, and see what looks interesting? Has your school suggested anything? (Mine suggested Pride and Prejudice, and a couple of other things I've forgotten.)


message 9: by Katherine (new)

Katherine I think they have hinted toward some but not really any big suggestions, I think ill at least try to read the top books on this list and then use the study books.

boku no pico is by far the most exhilarating read. Strongly Recommend!
