Read. Chat. Love. Read-A-Thon challenge #1


Challenge #1

Have you ever had required reading for school? Those sometimes boring and painful books to read? Where you would rather watch the movie than read the book?

If you could create your own required reading list, what books would you put on it? Lord of the Rings, instead of Lord of the Flies? 

I don't think i can come up with as cool of an idea as Lord of the Rings instead of Flies, but here is my list of things i would have put on there =D

  1. Catcher in the Rye By J.D. Salinger
  2. Speak By Laurie Anderson
  3. Go Ask Alice By Anonymous (even though i was required this in middle school idk if they are anymore more)
  4. The Outsiders By S.E. Hinton (Again it was required for me, but you should still read it)
  5. Beastly By Alex Flinn
  6. Twilight By Stephenie Meyer (idk, this is a maybe, but it did cause social change) 
  7. Harry Potter By J.K. Rowling (Even though i have never read them, SORRY, i still think they are good for kids to read. I'll get to them i promise)
  8. Viola in Reel Life By Adriana Trigiani
  9. Generation Dead By Daniel Waters (AMAZING series, and it teaches you about segregation in a different situation)
  10. Along for the Ride By Sarah Dessen (or any Sarah Dessen books, because they all are amazing and teach you something)


  1. Great list! How on earth haven't you read Harry Potter, girl? Good God! How does life go on for you? If only I could purchase the whole series and ship them off to you. Promise you'll read them soon, please? Harry Potter has played a huge role in my childhood and I honestly think that everyone should experience reading the novel or, at least, try to read them. Before reading the Harry Potter novels I wouldn't dare touch a novel, not even look at one, for I hated reading so much. Than, one day, when it was raining outside and the power went off I decided to read the first Harry Potter novel because I happened to of liked the first movie. Within moments after picking up the first Harry Potter novel my whole life sorta changed, I started to love reading. Ever since I've loved reading and now what to become a New York Times Best Selling Author. God am I thankful that J.K Rowling wrote that series.

    I hope you read them soon.

  2. 1. Like i just tweeted you, that is hilarious!! and 2. That is such an awesome fan story. That is why i love reading so much, especially YA, because it really does change people lives. I'm so happy it was that inspirational and that you've become so successful! Now i HAVE to read them. I swear on my life i will read them sooner now just for you =D

  3. Score! J.K Rowling owns me big time! I'm probably the reason why she has so many fans-I'm always getting people, even those who swear they'll never touch Harry Potter, to read the series. Nah, I'm kidding! She's successful because she wrote an amazing novel about a black-haired, green eyed, and knobby knees boy named Harry Potter.

    I'm glad to hear that you're going to read them and thanks.
