Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Books That Would Be on My Monsters 101 Syllabus

top ten tuesday

Each week, The Broke and the Bookish hold Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly book blogging meme. This week, we’re creating our own syllabi! That’s right, we’re writing up 10 books that would be on our _______ class syllabus. This one gave me a good laugh, as  I haven’t been out of the teaching game all that long myself, though I taught composition rather than literature. And though 10 is a rather generous number of texts to add to a syllabus (especially an undergrad syllabus!) it was still difficult to narrow down the choices. However, here they are—10 books that would be on my syllabus in a monsters 101 class.


Ideally, this class would go on forever, we would read more than 10 books, and we’d watch a lot of movies. Yes. 🙂

  1. One of my best friends at college actually had a Monsters-themed seminar, although I think it was film-based rather than text-based. I remember her writing essays about The Blob and maybe also Frankenstein.

  2. I have the Joe Hill book on my Kindle and just haven’t gotten around to reading it yet. I guess maybe I should soon? 😀
