The Book List: Books That Take You Back to High School

Rebecca at Lost in Books hosts The Book List. Each Tuesday she asks for three books in a certain category. Participants will post their lists and link to their posts at her site. This week's list looked like fun:

3 Books That Take You Back to High School
  1. Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck - This was my first foray into John Steinbeck.
  2. Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift - I loved Jonathan Swift in high school. Besides this book we read his short story "A Modest Proposal," which was an absolutely brilliant work of satire.
  3. The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer - Although this was a slog to get through, I thought the characters were fascinating. My favorite character was the Wife of Bath.
So, what are 3 books that take YOU back to high school? Go on over to Lost in Books and join us in this week's Book List
