Last week in the bookish community was something called Banned Books Week.
Books are banned for both good reasons (Mein Kampf) and bad reasons (To Kill A Mockingbird), but I’m not writing this to discuss the act of banning, rather I thought it would be fun to share a list of some of the banned books I’ve read. Plus, banned books I would like to read.
Banned books I have read:
- The Bible (King James Version).
- To Kill A Mockingbird.
- The Lord of the Rings.
- The Scarlet Letter.
- The Hunger Games.
- The Giver.
- Green Eggs and Ham
Is anyone else confused over the fact that Green Eggs and Ham was actually banned at one point? *brain inserts sarcastic comments*
Banned books on my TBR:
- Alice in Wonderland.
- All Quiet on the Western Front.
- Animal Farm.
- Brave New World.
- Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
- A Wrinkle in Time.
- Lord of the Flies.
And, of course, the most ironically banned book of them all: Fahrenheit 451.
What about you? What banned books have you read? And what ones are you curious to read?
