“Read that? You must be mad!” // in which I speak of banned books 

  
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. 

Shall we?

Banned books I have read:

  1. The Bible (King James Version).
  2. To Kill A Mockingbird.
  3. The Lord of the Rings.
  4. The Scarlet Letter.
  5. The Hunger Games.
  6. The Giver.
  7. 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:

  1. Alice in Wonderland.
  2. All Quiet on the Western Front.
  3. Animal Farm.
  4. Brave New World.
  5. Frankenstein.
  6. Uncle Tom’s Cabin.
  7. A Wrinkle in Time.
  8. 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?
