Updated to reflect the 2019 exam!
As teachers of AP English Literature know, it can be very overwhelming to prepare a reading list. There is no suggested reading list for the course or for the exam, and the titles included in the title suggestions grow each year. However, after 12 years of teaching and several years of scoring the exam, I have begun to see trends in novels and plays suggested on the exam. That is where this list comes in handy.
Each year I update this list, so this is the 2010-2019 version. It includes the suggested novels and plays from the most recent AP English Literature exams, so teachers can plan accordingly. I ask my students to choose their novels and plays to review from this list to get a better idea of what has been "trending" in years past. Feel free to study this list when considering changes to your AP reading list.
