This week's question is: Is there a book that you were required to read in school that you actually loved? - Suggested by Natalie Hearts Books 

MY ANSWER: Why yes, yes there was! I've talked about this before. There has literally been only 1 book that I was forced to read that I ended up loving! And that of course was The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.

It's funny too, because there's nothing at all paranormal about it. I guess you could call it a loose thriller, except it's the Count who is going about getting his revenge on people! I enjoyed his way of getting revenge, because he did not kill a single man who wronged him, but he ruined them all! *insert maniacal laughter!

Yeah, I'm weird!! ;)



  1. I didn't have to read this one for school, but I also enjoyed it. I can remember watching the original movie when I was still in my teens (the version with Richard Chamberlain). I think there is a more recent version now. Great choice, Jessica.

  2. We were not required to read hardly anything but the one we had to I hated.

  3. I haven't read this before but it's one of those books that I always say I'll get around to reading one day. It sounds good! Glad you had one that you enjoyed in school :)

  4. This wasn't one of my required reads, so I haven't read it. Maybe I will one day! I didn't like most of the required books either. There were only a few I liked. Old follower!

  5. I never actually read that one! I've thought about picking it up on my own time, but never got around to it!

    Here's my F&F!

  6. Awesome pick!!! I loved The Count of Monte Cristo. I never had to read it for school though so my opinion might have been different if I had. :)

  8. I remember one of my friends reading the book in high school and really enjoying it. I was not required to read the book so I still haven't read it, but one day I will. :D Thanks for stopping by my blog today, have a great weekend! (:

  9. hahahaha!! I can always count on a smile and laugh when I read your posts. I haven't heard about this one (like many I'm finding today lol), but I'm really curious now how he seeks his revenge. I'm going to have to look into this one further! Keep being weird :)

  10. I've never read the book, but I have seen the movie. I don't know how similar or different they are, but I really loved the movie. Thanks for stopping by!

  11. I never read this one or had the option in school. I still hate to admit it that I haven't read it yet even though I've wanted too. May just have to change that now. Thanks so much for sharing! Have a great week.

  12. Hopping through. I read Count on my own in my senior year - because my boyfriend liked it and I wanted to impress him. Fortunately, I loved it.
