Book Blogger Hop: October 1-3

Book Blogger Hop

As Crazy For Books says:

Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTis an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!

This week's question is:

“In honor of Banned Books Week, what is your favorite “banned or frequently challenged book”?”
Click here for 2010-11 list in PDF format. You can also click HERE to view past years and choose from any of those titles!

My Answer:  Although there are so many excellent banned books, I have to select Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.  It's one of those books that just sucks the reader into the story, and even if a reader hasn't experienced the extreme bullying that Melinda did, I'm sure most can relate to her in some way. 


To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee.  This was one of my all-time favorite novels in high school, and I was so sad to hear it was on the Banned list.  It's too great a novel to keep so many others from reading and learning from the story Lee created.  

What's your favorite banned book? ^_^
