I finally realised I really want to do The Broke and the Bookish‘s meme after seeing today’s topic: Top Ten Books That You Wish Were Taught in Schools. I love how much power and meaning books can hold so I decided to make a life lesson list. Here are my 7 because I couldn’t think of any others.
1. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I heard that the girl who played Clove in the movie studied this book at school and loved it. Sigh. American schools. Anyway this book would teach us to fight for what we believe in.
2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Yes, it’s on this list. I think it would help teenagers really sympathise with cancer patients. It really impacts on people with its honest writing.
3. Delirium series by Lauren Oliver
Choose to feel, choose to love. You decide what you want to do and how you want to behave.
4. Sia by Josh Grayson
People can change and this is what Sia is all about.
5. The Last Song by Nicholas Sparks
I’m not a big fan of his writing but this books was really good. It’s really heartwarming and tells of the importance of family and love.
6. Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
Sydney grows to believe in herself and state her own beliefs throughout the series. She has a trait that many young girls share: she’s insecure about her weight. Also Adrian is awesome 😀
7. Matched by Ally Condie
Break free of the bubble. Literally.
