Feature Follow Blog Hop {1}

August 9, 2013 Feature Follow 37

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

How does this work? The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you!

I am quite glad that I was able to drop by Rachel’s blog at Parajunkee’s View and stumbled upon this meme. The blog hop sounds really fun so I decided to join.

This week’s question is:

Back to school. Create a reading list for the imaginary English lit class you’ll be teaching this semester.

So glad that this is just a make up story because I really suck at this. Anyway, I’d probably be requiring my students to read the following books for them to pass the subject:

  1. Casual Vacancy by J.K. Rowling
  2. The Green Mile by Stephen King
  3. The Giver by Lois Lowry
  4. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
  5. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
  6. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
  7. Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens
  8. The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
  9. The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

I just hope that with these selections, my students wouldn’t boycott me.

    I almost put Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on my list too…but my list already felt too long for my imaginary 3rd graders! :p This is a really interesting group of books though. Thanks for visiting my FF, following you back on Facebook, Bloglovin, Twitter, and GFC.

    THE GIVER is so good! I should have put that on my list. Okay, technically I didn't read the ending, but that's because I lost my copy of the book like on the last chapter and I didn't borrow a copy from the library to read the ending. I need to. *going*

    My FF

    The only one of these books I've read was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and that was years ago! The others I've been meaning to read and will try to get to them eventually…

    I've never read Little Women. But I don't think I ever will because my friend has told me everything that happened so it's kind of kill my interest =/ The Giver is indeed a good book!!! The Hobbit, oh I love the movie but the book just looking at it, its enormous size just scare me away…Well you do have a really good reading list =)

    Anyway thanks for stopping by and I follow via bloglovin

    Love that you included Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on this list! It was one of my favorites from my childhood and if I had had to read it in school, I definitely wouldn't have complained.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog! 🙂

    Great list. I really need to read The Giver.
    Thanks for stopping by my F&F. I'm following you back via Bloglovin.

    I actually stopped participating in this meme, but wow, looks like it brought you quite a few comments this week! haha.

    I like your reading list overall. There are some I've read (The Casual Vacancy, The Da Vinci Code, The Hobbit) and others I haven't… but even those I haven't I feel like I would read if they were in front of me. I feel like all of these are must-have books for a lot of people and would result in one happy class!

    This is the first time that I've joined the meme, Asti since I was quite curious on how fun it is. And I really like to snoop around people's business. Haha. And I think this meme will serve that purpose.

    Thanks for that boost in confidence. I was quite afraid that my everyone in my class would drop the whole subject after they got wind about the class curriculum. 😀

    Thanks for stopping by.
