  1. I have to say I have two favourites. My first favourite was To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee which I read in Grade 9 English. It really had an impact on me. And my second favourite was Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen from Grade 11 English. That one was particularly special because not only did I go on to read all of her books, but it launched by love of romance novels. 🙂

  2. I had the most wonderful English teacher junior year. I can remember almost every discussion on almost every book in her class! Favorite? The Gothics fill the top of the list. Wuthering Heights. Jane Eyre. The Crucible is on the list as well.

  3. I can’t remember any books I read for any classes in high school. Well, I read Wuthering Heights but I hated it! we did read a lot of Shakespeare and I really enjoyed that.

  4. Romeo and Juliet. It has always been my number one, although I cannot stand romance any longer. I have shifted to Fantasy and Paranormal. How crazy is that?

  5. That’s a tough question, because I discovered so many books in high school, but I’m going to go with The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. Even though Rand carries a lot of political baggage, the themes of being true to yourself through your art and valuing yourself still resonate with me, plus I found it an entertaining tale.

  6. Didn’t really enjoy the Dickens or Shakespeare that we had to read every year – sorry Chuck & Billy – but I DID like “The Old Man and the Sea”.

  7. Not seeing my post, not sure if it went through, sorry if duplicate –
    BUT I’ll go with Old Man and the Sea … we had to read a Dickens every year, and a Shakespeare every year, and I never got into either. (Although I will concede that I appreciated each of those authors more after seeing them on stage.

    1. Ahhhh … now I see BOTH versions. For some reason, the first pre-moderation post wasn’t showing up on my screen refresh … now BOTH are.

  8. If I had taken PRIDE AND PREJUDICE in High School that might have been my favourite. I didn’t enjoy most of the novels we took but I loved Shakespeare. So my favourite was THE MERCHANT OF VENICE… but only because we didn’t we didn’t take MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING.

  9. My favorites in high school were Farewell to Manzabar, the story of Japanese American internment during World War II, Taming of The Shrew, and Tale of Two Cities, which still affect my writing today. I was fortunate to have Mr John Zweers teach living history and theater history, because I studied and performed plays, learning different voices, from a wide span of time, I still sometimes call upon them in my writing. Great question! 😉

  10. I have two favorites from high school — Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice. When I was teaching English, I fell in love with Macbeth. Lady Macbeth is such a strong character despite her fall into evil, and the 3 witches added the paranormal element that I put into my own stories.
