#SixforSunday – Books I Studied In School

Happy Sunday Bibliofriends!

This week’s Six for Sunday is all about books we studied at school. As an English Literature student I studied quite a lot of different reads at both High School and University; most of them are still sitting on my bookshelves so it was nice to take a little trip down memory lane this week.

For those who don’t already know, Six for Sunday is weekly meme hosted by Steph over at A Little But A Lot. September’s theme is ‘The School Month’. 

Fictional Schools/Universities I’d Want To Go To

  1. The Miller’s Tale – The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer
    Bawdy, humorous and downright Medieval-style X-rated this was definitely a memorable historical tale.
  2. Spies by Michael Frayn
    For some reason I got so drawn into this story and the cryptic secrets of the plot as the two main characters embark on their espionage.
  3. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
    One of my favourite classics, it’s such a timeless love story and champions women standing firm in their own beliefs.
  4. Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy
    This was the first time I’d read anything by Hardy and I got swept away in the pastoral world and characters that he created.
  5. Once in a House on Fire by Andrea Ashworth
    I studied this as part of my coursework on comparing different memoirs. My favourite English teacher gave me her copy. I loved Ashworth’s writing style, she took her pain and trauma and turned it into beautiful, lyrical writing.
  6. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
    There ain’t no story like a Gatsby story – I love this one so much!
