This week’s book chat is all about banned books because it’s Banned Books Week. It’s absolutely ridiculous that there are still books in this day and age that get banned, I’m against any form of censorship and everybody should be free to read what they like to. It’s even more ridiculous if you look at the reasons why certain books are banned from reading. If you have a look at the lists of challenged books over the year, you’ll be surprised at all the books that have been banned at one time or another.
I’ve decided to list a banned book that I have read and a banned book that I want to read from the 2012-2013 list, I’m actually quite shocked as to which books are banned and have been banned in previous years.
One of my favorite books by one of my favorite authors, it makes me sad that this book dealing with an important and scary theme.
I’ve heard good things about this book and the fact that it appears on the banned books list makes me want to read it even more.
