FF 2012 Feature & Follow #106

This week's question is:
Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?

Hmpf. I'm out this week. The thing is, people in Germany don't really know "summer reading". It's not that we'd be required to read a certain book - or anything, really - in summer. We do, of course, have to read books during the school year because we're working on them in class, but most of them are...well...german books I guess noone would know anyway. We do read some books in my 
English class, though. 
1) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime which I hated with a passion (no offense...I just didn't care about the story at all and then I was forced to read and I was forced to analyse parts of it and I was confronted with it three times per week for many weeks)
2) Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing which was hilariously funny and which I'm still obsessed with :)


  1. I actually loved The Curious Incident (although would have loved it a lot less if I had to study it the way you did). And of course Much ado about nothing is a spectacular work of literature! Great choice!

  2. I couldnt ever get into Shakespeare!

    I just couldnt understand the way he wrote!

    I like more modern books... haha

    Great choices though!

  3. HA. My psychology teacher wanted me to read The Curious Incident (etc.) but I figured, why recommend this book to someone who HAS two brothers with autism? :P I thought it was ironic and never did end up reading it.

    "Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing"? SOUNDS hilarious! :)

    Thanks for sharing. :)

  4. Not familiar with those. For the most part I didn't have any required reading during the summer. That was usually just honors classes. But during the school year was when there was tons of books you HAD to read! And from high school through college I only ever really enjoyed one of them!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  7. I haven't read either of those books but I may have to look into them.

    Happy Reading!

  8. Oh, Shakespeare!! That title is familiar to me, but I do have to admit I haven't read it. LOL. Thanks for stopping bY!

  9. I also loved Curious Incident but I am curious to check out the Shakespeare title you mentioned :) I'm not usually a fan but maybe this will be one of those exceptions.

  11. I didn't have to read books in the summer either. Maybe that is an American thing. I don't know. I thought of books I had to read during school time as well. I'm from the UK btw.

    Thanks for stopping my my FF

  12. I always liked Shakespeare's tragedies more than the comedies. I've been thinking about reading the comedies again, including Much Ado About Nothing, to see if I can better appreciate them now.

    Old follower. Thanks for stopping by!

  13. Sorry I'm so late. Had a busy weekend!

    I didn't have any required summer readings either. I just choose my favorite school readings instead. I don't think I'd like summer required readings at all... I didn't even like required readings DURING school, lol.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF. Old follower :0)
