We all had to read things in school that we didn’t like … but what
about something you read for a class that you ended up liking (or
loving)? An author you discovered that you might not have found? A
genre you hadn’t thought about?
Well, my junior year (last year) I liked The Great Gatsby. This year, I'm a senior. I'm taking an advanced english class this year, so we had summer reading. (ich) We were assigned to read The Awakening by Kate Chopin. I actually really liked it and thought I understood all the symbolism. I guess not, since I failed the test over it. But I'm pretty sure my teacher is just a hard grader.
I've never actually went out and chosen books based on the school required books, though.
Did you have an unpleasant-turned-pleasant school reading experience?
