Banned Books Week blog hop


In honor of Banned Books Week, I am giving away a copy of Sherman Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian which is a regular the Most Frequently Challenged list.

Goodreads Summary:
In his first book for young adults, bestselling author Sherman Alexie tells the story of Junior, a budding cartoonist growing up on the Spokane Indian Reservation. Determined to take his future into his own hands, Junior leaves his troubled school on the rez to attend an all-white farm town high school where the only other Indian is the school mascot. Heartbreaking, funny, and beautifully written, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, which is based on the author's own experiences, coupled with poignant drawings by acclaimed artist Ellen Forney, that reflect the character's art, chronicles the contemporary adolescence of one Native American boy as he attempts to break away from the life he was destined to live.

  4. "Slaughterhouse Five" by Kurt Vonnegut! It's an amazing book that surprised me in a lot of ways. So strange to think that anyone would want to ban it! It's amazing! :)

  5. Probably the Harry Potter series but there are soo many great books that have been banned and many are on my favorites list so it's hard to choose just one! I'm going to re-read The Giver sometime this week as it's been over a decade since I last did but I remember loving it a lot as a kid. :)
