I'm reading Macbeth eventually this year. I read LOTF and Odyssey, too. LOTF was awesome and the latter almost killed me, hahah

This year we had to read:
Montana 1948
Night
Macbeth

i like Night due to it was on the Holocause and thats my main area of studie.
Macbeth, like all other shakespearse is quite easy to do the work for it you understand the langue
and well montana 1948, well i fell asleep in class everytime we read it. luckly our we got to choise either montanan 1948 or night for the exam.

I don't know how it goes for each year at my school, but I know that we're about to start Of Mice and Men. Really looking forward to that. -_-

I read LOTF. It horrified me... the things those kids did. I hated the book! It's so brutal.

This year I have to read Oedpduis Rex, Much Ado About Nothing and Catcher in the Rye (I can't wait for that one!). I'm not sure what else.

i really hate having to read books that the school system chooses. right now for english were reading a tale of two cities, and i hate it. the only school required books that ive actually liked were, i am the cheese, ethan frome, and deception point which was for summer reading.

For School I've Read -
Skellig
Holes
Of Mice and Men

I didn't like any of them.

Of Mice and men is too factual - I prefer books that aren't depressing.

o heck i hate doing the whole reading a book to pick it to pieces it does my head in. we had to read certain bits of Macbeth in year 9 (the english equivalent of freshman year in high school i think) i'd looked a bit at Romeo and Juliet the year before . We also looked at Of Mice and Men and Educating Rita (which is actually a play rather than a normal book). thank goodness i didn't choose to do english literature for my A-levels i would have gone mad. Apparently in England students in english literature during high school can look at the Harry Potter books because the syllabus has been updated and it now includes modern books like that. don't quote me though none of the changes affected my course so i don't know for sure.
