FF 2012 Feature & Follow #107

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! ;-)

  1. Haven’t read either of those books yet! I must be missing out. I can’t believe kids get to read The Hunger Games as required reading? What! I would have loved that in school.

  2. Um, yeah, kids these days are spoiled. What happened to the classics? I would’ve been so deliriously happy if I got to read Hunger Games… FOR CREDIT. AT SCHOOL. Have not read In Cold Blood. I will check it out.

    Thank you for stopping by my FF!

  3. Hello! Stopping by from the social hop.
    Honestly, I don’t recall doing any summer reading that was assigned. But then again, it has been a while since I’ve been in school.

    • Lol. Thanks for hopping by Nette! I’m thinking there are probably more than a few students who wish they’d had the same experience! Following you back now!

  4. I never heard of that one., but i also am much, much older than most the crowd I have come across (I was in HS in early mid 80’s) lol
    Following Network Blogs and Linky, didnt find a GFC, so could not do that one, the one I use really, but will put you in my rss reader.
    Here is my post

    • It’s such an big change! My school stuck th the classics as well, but I can see the educational merit in both. Thanks for hopping by!
