• I have not seen the movie The Giver yet, however it did seem interesting. Taylor Swift is a deterrent to seeing the movie, but I do love the book so much.

  1. Ugh, I hate hate hate Lord of the Flies. I appreciate what you said and yes there is a lot to be taken from it, but I hate it. This probably has something to do with personal life events at the time of reading it, since someone compared it to Hunger Games/etc in terms of goriness and that doesn’t bother me (although I personally see significant difference there, but whatever).

    Jane Eyre is actually the ONE “classic” I really love 😉 But Wuthering Heights was awful.

    I remember reading The Giver as a kid and enjoying it, but I don’t think I fully grasped it. I’d like to go back & read it again as an adult- I think I would have a deeper appreciate for it.

    • I truly appreciate the irony to the fact that four of my ten favorite books (1984, Feed, A Canticle for Leibowitz, Lord of the Flies) were all books I was required to read for the only class I truly hated. My sophomore English course in high school was hell on earth thanks to my teacher, but she did assign us some really good books to read.

  2. I was not as big of a fan of Ender’s Game as I thought I’d be. Considering my genre tastes (dystopian literature, very similar to you), I would have thought it was a slam dunk. Sadly though, I was just…eh…about it. I had a much better time with the Redwall series.
