what books were you assigned to read in a class that you still hold a violent and bitter grudge against

for me it’s into the wild and the scarlet letter

To Kill a Mockingbird; a Sepaeate Peace

Of course I’m about to teach TKAM for the first time…

Of Mice and Men

Lord of the Flies

I refuse to teach both. Yay for designing all your own curriculum.

Return of the Native

Heart of Darkness. Fuck that book. Also fuck my teacher for picking that instead of 1984 which the whole class wanted to read. Like, the fuck?
