Of course reading is done in all subjects making it a pretty important aspect of a person’s education. However, just focusing in on the English class, a fun way for teachers to help their students to fine tune or hone their reading skills it to assign lots and lots and lots of books to read. In fact, by now you’ve probably read a few dozen books that were either recommended or mandated by an English teacher.

These books are staples because of what they have to offer, messages they foretell and they assist in helping your mind stretch and grow to learn and experience life in general, as well as to help you to develop a writing style that feels comfortable for you.

This quiz, and the one to follow [Part 2], will take a look at a number of books that nearly every middle school student will read, generally between the 6th and 8th grades. Below is a list of ten of a very popular group. Your challenge is to see if you can connect the correct author to the book. Knowing an author helps you to understand their writing style, the messages they try to deliver and, if you like how they write, you can search for other books and stories written by them.

So let’s see how well you know your books and authors. This will also test just how observant you have been with your reading and just what you comprehended beyond the story itself. Ready? Then see if you can match up the title of a book with its author!
