Top 10 books everybody should read before graduation from high school

The Harry Potter series tops the list of books to read before you graduate high school.

We asked students during lunch what book every High School student should read. Here are the top 10 answers and the reason why:


  1. “Harry Potter” by J.K. Rowling  –  because it’s great, actually, you should read it even before high school, but if you haven’t yet, go and do it right now.
  2. “Lord of Rings” J. R. R. Tolkien – because it’s the entire world of miracles.
  3. “To Kill A Mockingbird”  by Harper Lee – because it gives so many information about racism and other important issues and shows us everything in the ways it’s seen by children.
  4. “Everything Everything” by Nicola Yoon – because it’s a young adult book, which develops a really important theme.
  5. “Simon vs The Homo Sapiens agenda” by Becky Albertalli  – because when else do you read it, if not in High School? Never! But it is definitely worth reading!
  6. “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak – because how many books do you know about fascism in Germany and about the Holocaust? Do you want to know more? This book will teach you and make you cry.
  7. “13 Reasons Why” by Jay Asher – because it changes your view on high school and makes you think about the impact of your behaviour on others.
  8. “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” by John Boyne – because High school is the time when you don’t want to deal with hard themes as holocaust. This book deal with hard themes in the easy way.
  9. “Dandelion Wine” by Ray Bradbury – because it’s innocent, kind, and evokes a desire to live.
  10. “Little Women” by Louisa May Alcott – because High school is the time when you are growing up, This book perfectly shows the process of growing up.
