Interesting books to read

Hi everybody!
As all school districts are similar but different, I'm sure we all have the usual summer reading project to do. This year, my school is making us read two books instead of one. I have already read one book, Lois Duncan's I Know What You Did Last Summer. Now, I need help picking a second book. If any of you have read books that you have liked, please, post the title and author of that book and I will check them out myself to see if I will give them a read.

Thanks everyone, and take care,

Michael

How was the book I've only seen the movie
A few books I really enjoyed are

The invisible man by hgwells
Jaws
The exorcist by willian Peter blatty
The legend of sleepy hallow by washington Irving
Dracula by Bram stoker
Frankenstein by Mary shelly
Shutter island by Dennis Lehane

Those are few I like the exorcist and shutter island have some mature content but they are great all the same


Re:Interesting books to read



Hi Michael,
I love the novel I Know What You Did Last Summer. I've also seen one version of the movie too.
But some novels to check out are
1. Be More Chill by Ned Vizzini
2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Steven Chbosky
3 Blood and Chocolate by Annoette (i've forgot the last name.)
and 4. Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles.
Enjoy

Re:Interesting books to read



Hey everyone, thanks for the ideas! I will definately check summeries of those books to see if they interest me. Some of the titles do, so that's a plus. And wingman, I know what you mean by you haven't done it yet. Lol. My brother said he's not even going to do it because "who does it?" His words exactly! Lol. Thanks again everyone!


Re:Interesting books to read



blood and chocolate might be Annette Curtis Klause but her book alien secrets is also really good, I must admit I read a little of blood and chocolate and just was too overwhelmed by the vivid grossness to go on but alien secrets was really rather good.





lets see now...., some interesting stuff I read are


1984 by george orwell
aldous huxleys a brave new world.
george orwell's Animal farm
the giver by lois lowry. and the sequels but that's also classified as a middle school book I like her number the stars a ton better.
The diary of Anne Frank by anne frank.
much ado about nothing by william shakespeare
fahrenheit451 by ray bradbury
atlas shrugged by ayn rand
the fountainhead by ayn rand
if it can be a collection of short stories,
the complete adventures of sherlock holmes.
and if it can be self help nonfiction
How to Win friends and influence people
and there's also a good history text by william manchester call the glory and the dream.


Re:Interesting books to read



Rachel is right, 1984 was really good, so is The Giver, and I really enjoyed Macbeth by William Shakespare.


Re:Interesting books to read



I've never read McBeth, I've heard it's good, but not read it. I did romeo and juliet like most of us had to do. I tried a bit of taming of the shrew for extra credit but I don't think we finished it. we did julius caesar in 10th and much ado about nothing in my senior year of high school.


Re:Interesting books to read



In my senior yeah we had to read Lord Of The Flies, Macbeth, and 1984, and Fahrenheit 451. That one was super interesting.


Re:Interesting books to read



So far i only have to read like one book each year. The one we are going to be reading in English is Beowulf.
Has anyone read that? Meanwhile I've been deliberately avoiding my summer reading and reading the Harry Potter books and i plan to read either IT or Shawshank redemption or some other Stephen King book.
With my stream i've been able to really catch up.


Re:Interesting books to read



Thanks everyone! I am so excited. This year in English, we're reading To Kill a Mockingbird and a few other good books. Did any of you read To Kill a Mockingbird?

Re:Interesting books to read



Hey Guys!!
I loved to kill a mocking bird, it was fantastic in my opinion. And I wanted to die reading Beowolf, I don't really remember much about it just that I had to read it in my 6th grade gifted class, it was bad..
good luck Lindsy :)


Re: Interesting books to read



How was it bad? I read To Kill a Mockingbird. I was so bored. the movie was even more boring. I saw the movie and read the book in 9th grade.
