And well… I basically decided to compile a list of banned books that I've read or, if I run out, the ones that I'm interested in reading. By books I've read, I mean the ones I've actually enjoyed in some way. I've read quite a few banned books that are well….
Not my cup of tea.
As a draft. Waiting to be scheduled. Poor Lupe will be logging in tonight with quite a few posts added to the drawing board of individualization.
Back to the topic on hand.
House of Night series by P.C. Cast and Kristin CastI first started this in seventh grade. Great book, but definitely not my favorite or one that I devoured. While it was great at the time, I drifted away from the series. Eventually when I got back to it later - um, I TRIED - the series feel short. It felt draggy, and there was something I didn't like about the series anymore. (Still like the idea in a way, though.)
The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne CollinsI think I read this one before I picked up House of Night, probably because the series was big during the time and the movie rights might have been sold already or shortly after.
Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne FrankWell, color me shocked. I never thought this particular book would be on the list but okay….
Seriously, though. I'm not a huge fan of nonfiction, but I scored this book. (I believe there was a Masterpiece Classic back in 2009 or 2010 based on this book.)
Grendel by John GardnerUm… I don't remember much from this. There's a monster involved and I'm pretty sure it's the villain of Beowulf…
The Fault In Our Stars by John GreenOver hyped, but good humor. Unfortunately, no tears were shed.
To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper LeeOne of the few favorite required reading I had to do during high school. I haven't read the sequel yet.
Vampire Academy series by Richelle MeadLupe's favorite series of all time is banned. O_o
Twilight series by Stephanie MeyerI… I have respect for Twilight after my first DNF.
Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls WilderLaura Ingalls Wilder was my childhood. I kid you not. I went through those books like the book community all gathering together to currently read Leigh Bardugo's Crooked Kingdom right now.
Harry Potter series by J.K. RowlingEnough said on this one.
I've probably read at least 20 if not more books that are banned/challenged. Anyone else feeling awfully rebellious?
