Required Reading Part 3: The Popular Edition

View parts one and two here and here :)

Now these three final novels are ones that I know most people have heard of, or even read, so they will contain no summary: only my own thoughts on reading them.

Part 3: The Popular Edition

1. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
You may recall a post last semester about my required reading. And guess what? Wuthering Heights was on it. This is lucky because not only do I look forward to reading Wuthering Heights again, but I also don't need to spend any more money on a different book.
[[Side note: the cover pictured is not the copy I own, but it's the newly re-released paperback cover. I love it!]]

2. Beloved by Toni Morrison
I read this book my freshman year of high school, and I don't remember much of it. We watched the movie for my English class last semester, so that helped refresh, but I am definitely looking forward to reading this again as an adult and understanding the deeper concepts.

3. The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold
You could not imagine my excitement to see this book on the required reading list. I've owned this book for how many years, at least five, and I still haven't gotten around to reading it. I was so determined to get around to it when the movie came out, but I still never did. I'm excited to get started!

As you can probably tell, I am the most excited about these books, but I am also excited to get into some different novels/plays/poems that I may not have considered otherwise.

I hope that some of you will post about your required reading: I'd love to see what everyone else has/will read for class, whether you're in high school or college!
