Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Each week, a new topic is put into place and bloggers share their top ten (or your own amount) accordingly.
As of writing this post, my education path is somewhat unsteady right now. I didn’t get into my Uni place, and was unable to take the foundation course since they ran out of spaces so quickly. So right now I’m waiting on my college to respond back about me coming back to college to do a third year and retaking a couple of my exams. I had so many ideas about what I wanted to do for this week but I decided to make a top seven list of books I’ve read for school/college (in no particular order)
- The Iliad – I had taken Classics at college and in the first year we studied The Iliad. It was one of the best books I’ve read for school and it’s one of my all time favourites now. (And because of this I ended up reading The Song of Achilles which is also a favourite so yay!)
- Of Mice and Men – The amount of copies of this book we had at secondary school which had ‘george kills lennie’ on the front page was so silly but so funny.
- An Inspector Calls – So much suspense, it was great and the arguments everyone had over who was to blame was so funny.
- Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry – One of the first books I had read about racism and class distinction. The English department at my secondary school could never really keep up with the books we had to read so we never finished this in class but I was glad I decided to finish it on my own.
- The Alex Rider series – I read half the series in primary school with my reading group but we never got to finish the series since everyone kept mucking around. I hope to finish this series one day when I have the time.
- Women’s Life in Greece and Rome – This was a source book we had to read for the other half of classics in college and it was so interesting to read about the lives of women who lived in Athens. My favourite was Neaera !!
- The Clouds – Even to this day, I still don’t understand the Clouds but it was a strange and hilarious read.
