**I just realized this is my 500th posting from the “Fancy Oatmeal/Forever Within the Numbered Pages” blog!!!! Thank you to all of you who have followed me through my journey of figuring out what this blog is meant to be and all of the adventures leading up to today.
(Thanks for the image!)
The 2012-13 school year is not quite yet over, yet I a have been brainstorming and researching many different titles for next year’s Freshmen English Reading List. There are two different classes that I will be teaching, in theory: English I and Honors English. There is nothing that says I have to create two different syllabi, but it allows me to indulge my own book nerd heart. #MoreBooksMoreJoy
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
The Book Thief by Mark Zusak
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Looking for Alaska by John Green
(You know I love me some John Green!)
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Sold by Patricia McCormick
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
(We already have a love affair with the Bard)
Any books that you would recommend that I add/replace/remove? Seriously, I am open for suggestions!
