Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
This week’s topic is Back To School Freebie — anything “back to school” related like 10 favorite books I read in school. I chose to do Top Ten Books I read when I was in school. Most of these I read in junior high or elementary, so I am going way back.

Yes I did have pretty much every single Goosebumps book ever made at that time!

  1. Strange as it may sound, I think the Shakespeare I had to read in high school were some of my favorite all-time reads, even though at the time, I was forced to read them, haha. I remember loving Hamlet, Romeo & Juliet, Othello, Macbeth, and The Taming of the Shrew.

  3. Oh my gosh! Your list totally took me back to my elementary/middle school reading days 🙂 I totally forgot about Running Out of Time by MPH. I loved that one. The Giver is one of my all time favorites too.

    I feel like Romeo and Juliet is the go to Shakespeare play taught in school. Perhaps that first experience made me such a Shakespeare nerd 😉 Great list!
