Celebrating the Freedom To Read

If I’m not mistaken, this week is banned books week. Here are some banned books I am planning on rereading

  1. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger. I’m reading this for school, which is convenient because I’ve been planning to reread it for a while
  2. The Outsiders by S.E Hinton. I think this was my first experience with a banned book. Our teacher was outraged that the school wouldn’t allow us to read it but she told us to read it anyway. And it’s one of my most favorite books now. 
  3. Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I’ve been meaning to read this for a while. Hopefully my library will have it soon!
  4. Looking for Alaska by John Green. I think I’ll give this one another try. I didn’t really enjoy it when I first read it, but let’s see how it is the second time. 
  5. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I still can’t believe that this is banned because I don’t think anyone will copy those kids…

This was a very short post and done in a hurry. I apologize.

Anwyay, give me some recommendations for more banned books!

    • Oh I love Roald Dahl! He’s one of my favorite authors since I was little. I didn’t know James and the Giant Peach was banned. That is intriguing. As for the Giver, I didn’t enjoy it as much as people wanted me to. I don’t know why.

      Is Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson?
