Ten Books That Would be on my Syllabus


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

So here are the 12 Books that would be on my syllabus if I took the teacher route in life…and if I didn’t have to deal with school boards or age appropriateness or any of that boring stuff.

Dystopian Future Unit 


Southern Lit Unit


The Classics

      I just reread And Then There Were None when the bbc movie came out and that was fantastic! I have reread A Handmaids Tale since high school so it’s definitely on my list!

    I like the theme of your list! And totally with you on Handmaid’s Tale. I also loved the Zelda book. And, because he’s my all-time favorite author, I have to put in a plug for something by Pat Conroy to go on your Southern Lit list!

    I am a teacher and I spend way too much time compiling my fantasy syllabus; mainly it involves binning off Dickens in favour of Hardy and Gaskell, and making kids read East of Eden. I’d also love to be able to do more with linking classics with really contemporary YA. Sigh. I’m actually teaching The Handmaid’s Tale in a dystopian unit from next week; if the kids don’t like it they might find themselves in a real-life dystopia…

      Oh that’s totally awesome your kids will be reading it though! The most Contemporary book we ever read in high school was a book about how cloning is bad, as was the book lol
