Banned Books Giveaway Hop


Welcome to Banned Books Giveaway Hop hosted by Bookhounds. I'm giving away a $15 gift card to the book store of your choice.

I'll be honest, I don't care for explicit material myself (usually), and I do believe in being careful what children have access to, but I'm very baffled by most of the books often challenged or banned for high school age. I was reading EVERYTHING when I was in high school, and what I didn't like, I didn't read. As simple as that.

My favorites:
The Harry Potter series
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
A Wrinkle In Time

On my To Be Read list:
Brave New World
Slaughterhouse Five
The Kite Runner
The Things They Carried
Fahrenheit 451

What are your favorites or anticipated reads on The List?

  3. thanks for the giveaway. I'll be curious what you think of Slaughterhouse 5 and The Kite Runner. They are both very good, though the latter is a difficult read because of the topic.

    I follow your blog via email.

    1. I have Slaughterhouse 5 somewhere...I'll try to read it in the upcoming year. I've heard only good things about Kite Runner, but I have trouble with things that are too graphic. My imagination tortures me!

  4. Great blog hop! I remember reading The Face on the Milk Carton when I was in school. I can't imagine why that's on there. I read The Handmaid's Tale this year for the first time. What exquisite writing, and the lessons it imparts are brilliant. I can't imagine that older teens not getting something from it even if they didn't have the life experience to get a lot of what it has to impart.

    1. I haven't heard anything about The Face on the Milk Carton. I've heard mixed reviews of The Handmaid's Tale. Though it's not a book that appeals to me in any way, I usually enjoy a book if it is written well no matter what the subject matter. :)

  12. "It blows my mind, the books that are banned. Such ridiculous reasons, most of the time. I want to read all of them, just to give them the support that they deserve. Thanks for the giveaway! GFC- Jaime Lynn "

    I agree Jaime, though I do think there are age appropriate limits (speaking as a former child/teen, a mom, and a teacher). I didn't post your original comment as you included your e-mail. But thanks for the comment and following! :)
