Honors AR Options

Here are links to information about the AR books honors students should choose from for their next reading assignment:

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

Mansfield Park by Jane Austen

A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway (10th grade only)

Vanity Fair by William M. Thackeray (12th grade only)

Please note that these links take you to Amazon.com not because I expect you to purchase the books, but rather because it is a good quick resource for reviews (scroll down to find them) and excerpts of the books.

My students in Regular English are of course encouraged to read these books also, however they are not required to do so.

  1. As part of Google’s ever-expanding array of search options, Google Books (http://books.google.com), offers the full text of all but one of the books. This is useful for reading a little ways into the book without having to trudge to the library.

    Wuthering Heights

    Mansfield Park

    Vanity Fair

    Although they do have the whole text, nothing beats just picking up the book from the library.
