Julie Review Avatar Julie:

Here is a list of books banned/challenged in 2015.

Some of my favorites in that list include:

  • The Fault in Our Stars
  • Looking for Alaska (well, just about everything of John Green’s is on the list)
  • Twilight saga

Banning books just makes me sad. And angry. Or maybe it should be a badge of honor? That an author wrote a book which triggers so many feelings? Some of my favorite books which have been banned:

  • Catch-22
  • Lord of the Rings
  • Wrinkle in Time
  • Twilight Series
  • Fault in Our Stars

 

   

 

Do you have any favorite books which have been banned?

    I found it really interesting that the highest percentage of banned books is at the public library. I can kind of see how parents might disagree with a book being readily available in a school library where the parent can’t tell what they’re child is checking out (and where kids might unsuspectingly check out something they’re not ready for) and especially as part of a curriculum where a child is required to read something they might find questionable. (I know, I’m in the minority with thinking even that type of protest is kind of okay.) But I don’t understand how you could protest something being in a public library. That’s for everyone to use and books should be available to anyone who wants them. If a parent doesn’t want their child reading something, they should just pay attention to what their child is checking out! That makes no sense!!

      I agree, that just shows lazy parenting. I understand having issue with a required reading in school but the public library is for all, adults too.
