Quote of the day: “I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.
I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first." Cassandra Palmer ― Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Follow Friday - July 27th

Follow My Book Blog Friday is hosted by Rachel at Parajunkee's View and Alison at Alison Can Read. The point is to follow as many book blog as you can and make new friends! As part of the adventure, she gives a weekly question.

Q: 


Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?


A: 
There's a few books that I was required to read in school that I loved actually. 
Animal Farm by George Orwell stands out most. Our teacher was very enthusiastic about reading it out loud and got us all to take part then watch a movie, so that definitely helped us all like it more. 
Another favorite was The Outsiders by S.E Hinton. "Stay Gold Pony Boy" was one line everyone remembers from that book. We also watched the movie after reading this book as well. How could you not like it, really? 
In Jr. High we were required to read Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, which is a fantastic read for all ages. I still highly recommend that book! Last, but not least is Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson. This is a very emotional and well written book. I loved it and loved the movie as well. After reading  other posts, I realized I almost forgot The Diary of Young Girl by Ann Frank. It's a classic and full of emotion and history. A Fantastic read.  AND Holes by Louis Sachar. Awesome book and movie!
There's many more that I enjoyed, but I think I'll stop there. *laughs*

I recommend that everyone read those novels at least once in their lives. It worth it!

I remember reading the last three. Terabitha though is really vague. I just know the title and not just from the movie!
