Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Wish Were Taught in School


This week The Broke and the Bookish asked us to either pair a modern book with a classic or compile a list of the books we wish schools would teach. While I love the idea of book pairings, I am taking the easy way out today. The really easy way out-I don’t have the energy for words today. Enjoy the pictures!

1. Books that deal with bullying

some girls are absolutely true diary okay for now

2. Books that deal with LGBT issues

3. Books that deal with environmental crises

4. Historical Fiction at it’s finest

5. Historical Fiction with a twist

6. Mythology

7. Need a lesson in Satire?

8. I would like to see a government class tackle this series:

knife of never letting go ask monsters of men

9. How about discussing the dangers of losing free will?

10. What does it mean to be human/medical ethics

  1. I love how you broke your list down Megan! -Cailey

  2. You might have felt too lazy for words, but I think you balanced it our with the sheer number of books you put on this list. 🙂

  3. I’ve only read a small number of the books you listed, but have heard great things about many of the others. Great list!

  4. Such a great list! There are so many books that I’ve read, and still need to read. I love how you broke the books into categories 🙂
