This week's question feature is
Wonderland’s Readers

Back to school. Create a reading list for the imaginary English Lit class you’ll be teaching this semester.

My Answer:Wow, American schools go back really early. We've still got 3 weeks off here in the UK. But here we go. 

My Class would be a great mix.

- A Study in Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

- Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K Rowling

- Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

- Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

- A Midsummer Nights Dream by Shakespeare

So who would like to join my class?

Happy Hopping & Blogging. :D

Actually I think that most people in the US still hav until the end of August... Thankfully I don't go back until September 4th but I'm still in high school and most colleges tend to start before that! Great list! I love A Study in Scarlet! And it's great that you mixed in some newer books like The Hunger Games and HP! Definite must reads!!

Charlotte - thanks. Well, I love Sherlock Holmes and think it would be great to study - look into how Sherlock solves the crimes and his personality.
A Midsummer Nights Dream- because it's the only Shakespeare I like! And it's funny.
Pride and Prejudice - because I hated it at school, but since I've read it again I can appreciate the story and characters and the reflections of society on individuals.

Fly - thanks! I did think it was a bit early. Would hate to be back at school so early in August!

Thanks Book Cupid!

Hi Tina! Hope you enjoy it, I know what you mean about eventually though, took me ages to get to it.

Amber - I thought it would be a popular choice, it's pretty standard. Ignore the hype and read it because you want to. It's a marmite book - you either love it or hate it.

Thanks Jazmen, welcome to class. :D
