It’s Banned Books Week, folks! What better way to celebrate the freedom to read than by picking up a book that has been challenged or even banned?! I’m celebrating by rereading a few of my favorites and sharing my top 20 banned or challenged books (in no particular order). Some of the reasons these books were banned surprised me, but at the end of the day I celebrate that I was able to enjoy them regardless of the criticism they endured. That’s one of my favorite aspects of reading-we all glean something different. A book I love may be a book you hate, but we all should have the freedom to read and decide on our own. Happy Banned Books Week! Tell me about your favorite banned book from my list OR tell me one I missed!
