Why bore students with "academic" literature for the sake of it? Students are more apt to learn if you choose meaningful texts they can relate to/enjoy reading. A lot of my lessons are discussion based because I believe those that do the most talking are doing the most learning. I'm always trying to think "outside of the box" to come up with lessons that impact students and allow them to see the connection between the literature they are reading and what they personally going through.
