The new school year hasn’t started yet, but Victoria has already read two of the books on her 9th grade reading list and she loved them both.
Read so far…
- Farenheit 451
- Lord of the Flies
Recommended reading for 9th graders is so chipper, isn’t it?
She’s also been reading a ton of regular YA books for fun, but I think it’s cool that she’s so gung-ho to read from her list so often. She tends to read these books very quickly (getting caught up in them for hours at a time) and really likes them so far too, which is a great testament to books that stand the test of time.
P.S. Don’t let your kids read the introductions to classic literature! Our library copy of Lord of the Flies told about the biggest events of the book (in the last chapter) in the introduction. They quoted the very end before the book starts. Pfft!
