Banned Books Week Give@way

This hop is hosted by I Read Banned Books & I Am a Reader, Not a Writer.  It lasts from now until 10/6. 

I want this one to be appealing to everyone, so I am letting you pick a banned or challenged book of your choice.

But because I like to share just a bit more I am providing a list of books that I have read, or have been wanting to read that have been banned or challenged.  This is really just the tip of the iceberg, there are many many more that I didn’t even include.  You do not have to choose from this list, but if you are the winner you will have to prove to me that the book you choose has been banned or challenged.

Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret
Tiger Eyes
The Face on the Milk Carton
The Giver
Go Ask Alice
The Handmaid’s Tale
Harry Potter series (you can only choose one book)
How To Eat Fried Worms
Jame’s and the Giant Peach
Julie of the Wolves
Killing Mr. Griffin
Lord of the Flies
The Outsiders

  1. My 8th grade teacher told me I wasn’t allowed to read Forever by Judy Blume in class. She wouldn’t let me use it in a book report either.

    Teachers shouldn’t care WHAT their students are reading – just that their students ARE reading.

  2. Lizzy, seriously?! In 8th grade?! By 8th grade I was reading mostly adult books. My worn copy of Forever was on its last legs I had read it so many times. I can’t believe that crap! You’re right, teachers shouldn’t care what they are reading, just that they are. That’s really sad. I hope that teacher ended up getting in trouble, I wonder how many kids missed out on great reads because of her. Judy Blume was like air for me, I read her books over and over. I still read them over and over!

  3. It is hard to believe that some of those books have been or are banned books.

    I absolutely loved the ones I’ve read from the list, and had no idea that they had ever been banned at one point or another. =)
