Banned Books Week Continues!

Hello, lovelies! I'm making this quick because I'm in the library on campus and other people undoubtedly need to use the computer. I won't be back home until later tonight, though, and did not want to miss out on my daily post to promote Banned Books Week!

So far I only have one Banned Book in my reviews archive - A Separate Peace by John Knowles. If you haven't checked it out yet, please do so! Fellow bloggers, do you currently have any Banned Books in your archives? Tell me about it in the comments! Feel free to link to them if you'd like.

And a question for everyone - have you started reading or re-reading any Banned Books this week? I am almost through reading Christopher Priest's The Prestige, and was planning to read Still Life With Woodpecker by Tom Robbins next, but I believe instead I'll start re-reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

Also, don't forget you have until 1 October to enter my Banned Books Giveaway! Check out the post for more details.


  1. I read A Separate Peace a while ago, and I remember liking it, but I can't remember at this point what it was actually about. I was reading through the list of banned/challenged books on the ALA website, and I was surprised how many books I love are on there, like What My Mother Doesn't Know, The True Diary of a Part-time Indian, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Sun Also Rises. I'll definitely be re-reading To Kill a Mockingbird this week since my friend got me a pretty new edition.

  2. I haven't read this one yet, but because it's a part of banned books week, I'm definitely adding it to my TBR list! I still can't believe people were trying to ban books -- that's just wrong! I think there are so many more awful things in the real world than in books, and reading just helps us get through them.

    You should definitely read The Hunger Games if you haven't already, Colleen! That's one of my favourite banned books -- or just books in general -- ever! :)

  3. I hear nothing but amazing things about the Hunger Games! I'm dying to get it!

    Karen, The True Diary of a Part-time Indian sounds really great, too, so I've added it to my wishlist because of BBW as well.

  4. I think I have read a couple banned books like Catcher in the Rye and Brave New World. Those are kind of popular ones though.
