If you’re just joining us…today’s post is a continuation of my friend Julia’s favorite books she read in high school when she wasn’t being assigned. You can read the first part here. She joked on Facebook last week that her list explains “how she got so weird.” While I don’t agree that she’s weird, the coolest part of this project for me has been tracing certain things about the people I know now back to the things they loved as teenagers. And voracious reading is definitely something Julia have in common, this is still just part 2 of 3…
Also recommended by Charlie.
Julia’s Note: I know it was on Kristin’s list, but it was the only thing that made me okay with the idea of graduating from high school.
Julia’s Note: Really good historical fiction.
Julia’s Note: Really good, pretty gross, about the Ebola virus. But trust me, it’s great. Also I think the only non-fiction on my list.
I think it might be the first non-fiction on any one’s list so far…I’m not sure what that says about us…
Julia’s Note: Sci-fi novel about a girl whose body is badly injured in an accident, so her doctors transplant her consciousness into the body of a chimpanzee. Kinda freaky, but really good.
Julia’s Note: I was really, really into fantasy books about dragons.
Somehow I never put together before that The Giver and Number the Stars were written by the same person. See how educational this series has been? I’d love to see what your list could teach me…send it to firstname.lastname@example.org
