Everyone Has A Book They Were Forced To Read In School That They Actually Loved — What's Yours?

Required reading can be good!

From summer reading to English class, we've all been forced to read books in school.

And though it was probably childish of me, being told that I had to read it instantly made me like it less. (Don't worry, I've grown out of this.) Not only that, but sometimes the books were simply too long, too old, too boring, or just plain bad.

But, when I stopped pretending to do my homework and actually read (don't judge me!), I stumbled upon a handful of books that I grew to genuinely love — ones with relatable characters, humor, drama, and more!

So, we want to know, what book were you forced to read in school that you actually loved?

Was it a classic like Pride and Prejudice or Catcher in the Rye?

Or was it something newer like The Hate U Give or I Am Malala?

Heck, I even took a class in college where I read books about zombies and witches, so maybe you read Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings in school and it rocked your world.

Whatever it was, we want to know! Tell us a book you read in school that you actually loved and why in the DropBox below, and your response may be included in a BuzzFeed Community post or video!
