What Should I Read this Summer?



Reading. It's a big part of my school life, and my own private life. But when summer break comes along so does the school summer assignments! Yayaya. Boooooo!!!!


Taking AP classes this coming year means I have summer reading like usual. So I want your opinions on which books I should read for my English assignment. I'm required to read Hamlet by Shakespeare, but of coarse so is most other kids in every school. But then I get to choose two books from this list (I took some books off I'm not interested in):
  • The Color Purple by Alice Walker
  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  • Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
  • Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zord Neale Hurston
  • The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
  • The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
  • The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
  • A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini
  • Rosencrantz and Guilfenstern are Dead by Tom Stoppard (Hamlet play off)
My plan was to get your opinions, and see which ones you like the most, with the poll on the side bar over there--------> (THE POLL IS NOW CLOSED.)


I already went through and got rid of the books I don't think I'll get through and read peacefully, but that still leaves plenty more! So help me out, the top two books might just be the two I'm going to read. Even though I'm seriously wanting to read Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, so it might just be the first book on the list.


I'm going to close the poll on June 22nd, so I have time to get the book and do the massive amount of motif work and such before September.


Remember all books I read for school are still reviews here at LWS!
So what will it hurt if you help a girl out!
