TGIF at GReads - Required Reading

TGIF is a weekly feature created and hosted by GReads! that re-caps the week’s posts and has different question each week.

 This week's question: Which book from your school days do you remember reading & enjoying? Is there a book published now that you'd like to see in today's curriculum for kids?

I loved to read and was always reading whether it be on the bus after school or during my lunch hour, at least before I switched schools for my final two years of high school.  My favourite reads from high school was A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.  The reason that I fell in love with the book was that it was a fairly short Dickens novel and also it had the historical element that I thoroughly enjoyed learning about.  When it came to university, my history profs occasionally assigned a book and the one that I changed how I felt about was All Quiet on the Western Front.  I had read it in Grade 12 for English and didn't really like it, but when a history prof of mine assigned it in a Western European course and when I realized the historical context of the book, I was much more appreciative of the book and quite enjoyed it.
