Q: Summer Reading. What was your favorite book that you were REQUIRED to read when you were in school?
A. Hands down, my favorite assigned summer reading was ‘In Cold Blood’ by Truman Capote. Looking back, it was the start of my fascination with true crime, mysteries, and police dramas. I mostly read YA now, but I still enjoy watching these kinds of shows when I can find a few spare minutes.
And although I loved In Cold Blood, I have to be honest and say that I’m a little jealous of kids today. Rumor has it summer reading now includes The Hunger Games! How awesome is that? I can’t recall ever being *required* to read a best seller that also happened to be an international blockbuster movie. *sigh* Kids today have it so good!
