Classic Books You Read In School That You Should Give A Second Chance

You'll appreciate these a lot more now.


With September just around the corner, it can be easy to get a bit nostalgic over our school days of past.

Passing notes during class, lunch-break gossip, and cute boys and girls are just some of the things we kinda miss. But one of the things we truly miss about school? Books we had to read in English class.

Now, we know not everyone agrees with this. In fact, some might be very happy to leave all that reading behind, but we do know there are quite a lot of you who are big readers, and who relish diving into a book on the regular.

With that in mind, there may have been a few books on your course syllabus that you didn't like or even understand, but are worthy of a re-read all these years later.

So, we picked 20 books you might have read in school that you should give a second chance now that you're an adult.

Take a look at our picks below and let us know if we missed any of your favourites!
