Banned Books Week 2014. Which ones have you read?

The history of challenged and banned books is long and rather amusing. Seriously. Check out this list of banned books from 1850-2002 that helped shape America. Crazy, right?

The TOP TEN most challenged or banned books of 2013, according to the American Library Association, are as follows:

 

  1. Captain Underpants (series), by Dav Pilkey
  2. The Bluest Eye, by Toni Morrison
  3. The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie
  4. Fifty Shades of Grey, by E.L. James
  5. The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins
  6. A Bad Boy Can Be Good for A Girl, by Tanya Lee Stone
  7. Looking for Alaska, by John Green
  8. The Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky
  9. Bless Me Ultima, by Rudolfo Anaya
  10. Bone (series), by Jeff Smith

 

I have read #1 (whole series), #5 (whole series), #7 and #8.
