Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books That I’d Put On My Syllabus

Top Ten Tuesday Attempt #1 pic versionTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday, participating book bloggers blog about their top ten lists.

This Week’s Topic: Top Ten Books That Would Be On Your Syllabus If You Taught X 101 (examples: YA fantasy 101, feminist literature 101, magic in YA 101, classic YA lit 101, world-building 101)


Hahh I’m going to suck at this topic. I don’t think I’d be a good teacher at all. I have the patience for little kids but I definitely don’t have the patience for careless, dumb high schoolers. I know that I’m a high school kid but that doesn’t mean I have to be able to stand some of my classmates! I don’t like people that are lazy and don’t do their work. I don’t like it when they disregard school as if it’s something trivial.

So if I were in a fantasy land and taught a class….. I think I would end up fangirling (or ranting) all over the place about my recent book and making every class one where we just sat around and read books. I think I’d be able to realistically make a class about tough-issue topics and preach about why we should all develop confidence though. I love the feeling of having confidence and having the strength to overcome your problems!

The official name would be…. *drumroll*

Developing Bookish Confidence 101
