Thank you for this great list! I'll save it and refer back to it often. Could you possibly provide a list of popular literature that universities would like high school kids to read? I would greatly appreciate this! My daughter has read Do Hard Things by Brett and Alex Harris. I hope that I got the authors names right; I can't find the book right now! It's a nonfiction book but I also want her to read popular fiction that encourages godly character. Thank you for any help you can give me with this.
Do Hard Things is a GREAT book to put on the reading list.
For popular literature, it changes all the time. And most of the books I don't really like, for one reason or another. The example I gave on my own reading list is "The Help" but I suppose others might include Harry Potter, Hunger Games, The Fault in our Stars. It's so hard to find books with solid values right now. These aren't books I necessarily recommend, I'm just throwing out titles that some kids are reading right now. The list would vary from year to year, and I couldn't suggest anything specific unless I pre-read them, and I don't have time to do that. I'm sorry I can't help more! Maybe I'll ask on Facebook....
