Making Up For Monday: School Time Blues

It's time for Making Up For Monday! This is a weekly meme hosted by me that asks some fun literary questions. Feel free to play along!

This week's question:
What books did you hate reading in school?

In college, I had to read Walden by Henry David Thoreau.  It was my first college course and I was so excited...until I started reading it. Ugh!  While Thoreau makes some amazing and wonderful points, he counters nearly all of them with hypocrisy throughout the book.  I was the only person in the class who disagreed with the book and wrote papers arguing against him, so I know I am in the minority on this one.  But by the time the class ended, all I wanted to do was burn it. 

What about you?
