For this week’s question, Kristin @ Lukten av Trykksverte asks:
In regards of Banned Books Week, what are your favourite books that has been banned or challenged?
Reviewing the list of books that have banned or challenged will never cease to amaze me! I hear about parents challenging books on classroom reading lists all the time, but seeing them all in one place is a bit overwhelming.
I mean, just looking at the top ten most challenged books of 2016 is quite alarming:
Just a handful of my favorite books that have been banned or challenged include:
