My Top Ten Books Read in High School-WHAT DID YOU READ IN HIGH SCHOOL that made an impact on you?

My Top Ten Books Read in High School

(Plus the start of it all in grade school)

  1. And Then there Were None-Christie
  2. The Bad Seed-March
  3. Arsenic and Old Lace-Kesselring
  4. Romeo and Juliet-Shakespeare
  5. Macbeth-Shakespeare
  6. The Odyssey-Homer
  7. The Pearl-Steinbeck
  8. Little House on the Prairie-Wilder
  9. The Great Gatsby-Fitzgerald
  10. Taming of the Shrew-Shakespeare

How did they impact me?  Agatha Christie inspired me to write and to be original and deceptive and crazy and interesting.  The Bad Seed and Arsenic and Old Lace (from Theatre class) were absolute foundations for drama and solving a good mystery should be the spice of life with every day you live. Shakespeare is just plain fun to read aloud, especially with exaggerated dramatic effect. The Odyssey makes me want to walk out the front door and spontaneously go anywhere. (My husband and I did often before children.) The Pearl made me appreciate people for who they are and love that we are all different. Jay Gatsby and Romeo make a young girl swoon and look forward to one day falling in love.  And lastly, The Little House on the Prairie was the first chapter book I ever read.  Thank you Ms. Winner, my second grade teacher from Mesquite, Texas, Range Elementary.
