top 10 lists

Over the course of this semester, this class has renewed my love for reading. I was struggling to find time before this. I wasn’t reading hardly at all and I wasn’t fully enjoying the books I was reading. I am so excited to keep reading and to further my love and pass it onto my own classroom someday. I have come up with 3 lists to help summarize my favorite books over this semester.

Top 10 reads of the semester:

  1. Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
  2. Pirate Pete by Kim Kennedy
  3. Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann
  4. Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper
  5. Holes by Louis Sachar
  6. Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
  7. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling
  8. The lion the witch and the wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
  9. The one and only Ivan by Katherine Applegate
  10. We forgot Brock! by Carter Goodrich

The Book shop in Wigtown, Dumfries and Galloway is Scotland’s largest second-hand ­bookshop. A mile of ­shelving that holds books on all subjects makes this local stop a "work of art." Local history books are a ­speciality.

  1. Grand Canyon by Jason Chin
  2. A different pond by Bao Phi
  3. Voice of Freedom: Fannie Lou Hamer by Carole Boston Weatherford

  1. Great top 10 list! I noticed in your last list you have three Harry Potter titles haha That is awesome! for-sure they will keep you occupied if you even on an desert island


  2. I have struggled to get back into reading simply because life becomes overwhelming sometimes. I can definitely agree with you that this course has renewed and made it possible for me to fit reading in my busy life. I love a lot of your top ten choices! I had a few of the same ones on my top ten list! Thanks for sharing!
