Required Reading I’d Recommend

Good Morning lovelies!

As I mentioned in my blog post on Monday, this week is unofficially back-to-school week here on the blog. I’m celebrating my return to classes with some back-to-school themed posts!

Today’s post is all about books I’d recommend as required reading. So many schools have outdated required reading lists and if I had my way, I’d have these books on a list for required reading or at least as strongly suggested options πŸ˜‰

Most of the books chosen were just based off my love of reading them, but also based on their content in terms of what I think kids/young adults might be able to relate to as well asΒ might be able toΒ take something away from the storylines. I also chose some books based on what I know a lot of kids are reaching for at the book store I work at. Also I do have to say that some schools already have some of these books on their summer reading lists as options to read, in which I praise them highly for their decisions to do so πŸ˜‰
