Monday's Question of the Day is hosted by Eleni at /-LA FEMME READERS-/
Question: In school, most of the time we read classics, which one did you enjoy the most and which one did you hate?
My Answer: I didn't really like most of the stuff we had to read in school... especially in high school. I remember hating The Sun Also Rises and Great Expectations. There were a couple of books I read in elementary school that I really liked: Cue for Treason and Word to Caesar by Geoffrey Trease.
But as for the book I enjoyed the most and the book I hated the most, both were introduced in my first-year university English literature course. We had to read Jane Eyre (which I loved) and Joseph Andrews (which I loathed -- and still loathe -- with a passion). Overall, I hated that course... but I'm glad that it introduced me to Jane Eyre. Otherwise, I might never have read one of my all-time favourite classics.
